General Community Announcements
Several municipal water providers are asking customers to run their water continuously, to prevent pipes from freezing. The frost level is coming dangerously close to the level at which water leads are installed. The L’Anse, Lake Linden, Chassell Township, Adams Township and Portage Township Water Departments are among those providers who recommend that you maintain a stream of water about the thickness of a pencil lead around the clock from one tap. If your water department is not listed, check with your water provider to see if you should run your water continuously. You may also need to notify your water department that you are doing this, so they can adjust your water bill.
The Copper Country Humane Society is holding a Cutest Pet Photo Contest. There’s a website where you can upload a digital photo. Then, encourage your friends to vote for your pet by making a donation to the CCHS. Or, just go to the website and make a donation on behalf of your favorite photo. There are some nice prizes for the photos that collect the most donations. To upload your photo, or cast your vote, click here.
