Oak Creek announces water shutoff due to construction

Due to construction related to water system improvements, a temporary water shutoff will take place in Oak Creek Wednesday.

From 9 to 11 a.m., all water services located north of the railroad tracks, including Moffat Avenue and east of Moffat Avenue, will be shut off. This will effect the Parker Addition, Lincoln and Grant avenues, First through Fourth streets, school building, Main Street east of Moffat Avenue and surrounding areas. The water will be shut off on Myers Street between Lincoln and Grant avenues from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Oak Creek town officials apologize for the inconvenience and remind residents to run their water for a few minutes to clear cloudiness upon a return of water service.

Routt County United Way to celebrate Day of Caring

Routt County United Way will host its 20th annual Day of Caring Wednesday, in an effort to bring together the community for one day of impact in Routt County.

Each year, hundreds of volunteers help at more than 30 project sites across the county, with tasks ranging from cleaning, repairs, painting and more. This day goes a step further than a standard spring clean- up day, as projects serve the elderly, nonprofits, and those who cannot perform much-needed jobs themselves.

Last year's projects included yard maintenance at The Haven Assisted Living Facility, painting and cleanup at The Boys & Girls Club and helping a senior in Oak Creek with yard work.

This year's event will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at noon, followed by lunch and awards, at Bud Werner Memorial Library.

The event is sponsored by Mountain Mattress & Furniture, and Ski Town Lions Club will provide lunch.
