New Holiday Decorations and Lights Policy

A new holiday decorations and lights policy was adopted by the Village Board of Directors and goes into effect on November 21, 2014.

The policy states:

Halloween Decorations may be put out on October 1st and permitted to retain throughout the month of October. Decorations must be removed by the first week of November.

Holiday Decorations may be erected the day after Thanksgiving and are permitted to remain through the second week of January.

The policy is available on the Resources page of the blog.


Mountain Lion Sighting

A mountain lion has been seen in the Dove Canyon area. The animal was picked up on cameras operated at Starr Ranch Sanctuary.

Additionally, this past week Dr. Don Earl of Lido Animal Hospital treated a greyhound that survived a serious attack from a mountain lion that climbed into the backyard of a home in Dove Canyon. The Department of Fish and Game is aware of the dog attack and has tips on its website should you encounter a mountain lion.

Please be on alert. Keep small children and pets close by, and avoid jogging / hiking / biking on trails at dawn, dusk and at night.
