Summer Reading Program Kick-offThanks to everyone who came to our Summer Reading Program Kick-off event! We hope you had a good time. And thanks to the Halsey Shedd RFPD for cooking lunch! If you missed the Kick-off, but you want to participate in the Summer Reading Program and be eligible for some fantastic prizes, please drop by the Library and get signed up. Since participation is for minutes read instead of pages, it doesn’t matter if you’re a quick reader or a slow one. And time spent being read to or reading to someone counts, too! Stop by the Library and we’ll tell you all about it and get you signed up.
Solicitator’s License RequiredDid you know that if someone knocks on your door to try to sell you something, they are supposed to have a solicitors license issued by the City of Halsey? Any time a salesperson knocks on your door, you should ask to see it.A solicitors license is required for each individual sales person, so if they tell you that “my company has one,” it isn’t true. The City of Halsey requires that Solicitors and Peddlers apply for a license ahead of time, so that a background check can be done on each seller. If a license is issued, it is a small, laminated card with the City of Halsey logo and the name of the sales person and the company they work for. If you are ever uncomfortable with a salesperson coming to your house, ask to see their license. You can also call City Hall and let us know if someone is going door to door without a license. Even if they have a license, if they behave inappropriately or make you uncomfortable, please let us know. You can also call the sheriff. Thank you for helping to keep Halsey safe!
Crime Prevention ForumThe City of Halsey will be hosting a Crime Prevention Forum on June 29th at 6:30 PM in the Community Center. Jim Lepin, Linn County Sheriff’s Office Crime Prevention Coordinator, will be here to explain services available to the community and to gather information from Halsey community members about local issues.Please join us for a cup of coffee and an opportunity to have questions answered and share your concerns.
