On August 14, 2018, Governor Kate Brown declared a state of drought emergency in Lincoln County due to low streamflow and hot, dry conditions.

The City of Lincoln City appreciates your cooperation and awareness during this time.  Please be mindful of your water consumption and avoid unnecessary and excessive water usage.

There are multiple ways we can conserve our water use.

  • When washing dishes by hand, don’t let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.
  • Some refrigerators, air conditioners and ice-makers are cooled with wasted flows of water. Consider upgrading with air-cooled appliances for significant water savings.
  • Adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk, or street.
  • Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
  • Choose shrubs and groundcovers instead of turf for hard-to-water areas such as steep slopes and isolated strips.
  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth and save 25 gallons a month.
  • Install covers on pools and spas and check for leaks around your pumps.
  • Use the garbage disposal sparingly. Compost vegetable food waste instead and save gallons every time.
  • Plant in the fall when conditions are cooler and rainfall is more plentiful.
  • Monitor your water bill for unusually high use. Your bill and water meter are tools that can help you discover leaks.
  • Water your lawn and garden in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler to minimize evaporation.
  • Know where your master water shut-off valve is located. This could save water and prevent damage to your home.
  • Install an instant water heater near your kitchen sink so you don’t have to run the water while it heats up.
  • Turn off the water while you wash your hair to save up to 150 gallons a month.

It’s that time of year again to start thinking about kids going back to school and saving money when buying school supplies. A great money-saving tip and last-minute summer activity to do with the kids is use those left over brown paper bags to make book covers.  All you need is the bag, scissors, and whatever you can imagine to begin decorating. 

LC Names the Giant Spruce in Regatta Park

Have you seen the giant spruce in Regatta Park.  It’s huge and so cool.  It’s estimated to be over 400 years old. It’s just a short walk in the open space that’s an important part of the park.

To honor this beautiful tree and Lincoln City’s native american – Siletz Tribe heritage the City Council named this tree Nuu-k’wii-daa-naa-ye’

Take the time to see this beautiful tree.  You won’t be disappointed.

LC Council Adopts Animal Waste Ordinance

On August 13, 2018 the City Council adopted Ordinance 2018-08 which regulates the disposal of animal waste.

From a practical stand-point, when you’re walking your dog or other animal you will be required to remove and dispose of any fecal matter left by your animal on the sidewalk, street, right-of-way, park or other public areas in the City.  You’ll also be required to remove and dispose of any fecal matter left by your dog or animal on any property you don’t own.

You’re also required to carry with you a bag to pick up after your dog or animal.  Bags are found throughout the City such as the beach entrances, at the Outlet Stores and other locations.  Old plastic bags can be reused by picking up animal waste.

See the City’s web page to view the entire ordinance.
