Sunday Fire Update

The City of Shady Cove WEED ABATEMENT Ordinance begins on May 1.  Fire Season is too important to wait until later in the year to start enforcement. There have already been numerous small wildfires in the Valley.  Jackson County has sent a DROUGHT DECLARATION to the Governor. Gone are the days of just cutting weeds once a year.  WE DO NOT WANT AND WE CANNOT HAVE ANOTHER FIRE SEASON LIKE LAST YEAR.

Please help the whole community by taking action now.  If there are any questions, do not hesitate to contact City Hall at 541-878-2225.  Community Service Officers will be patrolling regularly.
