Crook County Fire & Rescue Chief Matt Smith will meet with our homeowners at 10:00 a.m. on September 5, 2013, at the Powell Butte substation to answer our questions and concerns about fire coverage for our area. Please let Carolyn Embry know whether you will be attending.
Here’s the letter our neighbors in Powell Butte will be submitting to the fire chief. Remember to come to the meeting at the Stradley’s on Monday, August 19 at 1:00 p.m. to get to the heart of the matter and ready ourselves for the fire board meeting on Tuesday, August 20 at 9:00 a.m. If you can’t make either meeting, and are in agreement with the contents, please download the letter, print and sign it and return it to Carolyn.

For those who missed the fire drill this past Saturday, or those who would like a video of how to use the equipment, please leave a comment for the administrator and we’ll get a DVD made for you. Thanks to Dave Kimmel for filming the process.
…will be held at the home of Don and Linda Stradley on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 1:00 p.m., the day before the Crook County Fire and Rescue Board meeting on August 20. Please come if you can to discuss specifically what we can do to get the Powell Butte fire station manned.
On August 13 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., the Assessor’s Office will hold a town hall meeting at the Powell Butte Community Center to discuss the expected increase in real market values and associated potential increase in taxable values for the 2013-14 year. Please click the link below to see the agenda.
Please plan to attend a community meeting at the Powell Butte Community Center tonight, August 6, at seven p.m. (sorry for the late notice, I just heard about it five minutes ago). At that meeting the community will apparently hear from the Crook County fire department as to their dismal response time to the recent house fire on Reif Road.
It’s fair time at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds, today through Sunday, August 4. The Crook County Fair starts in Prineville next week. Check out the food preservation exhibits in Crook County for some names you may recognize….
