City of Morgan Hill Weekly 411
Week of  March  3 , 2019
Happy Weekend Morgan Hill!

It's March and spring will soon be here, but in the meantime there is more rain ahead. Thank you for your diligence in helping to keep our storm drains clear.  It really makes a difference when we all work together.  Keep up the good work!

In honor of Groundwater Awareness Week, March 10 - 15, Valley Water District will have a groundwater model on display in the lobby of the Council Chamber before the March 6th City Council meeting which begins at 7:00 p.m.  The model demonstrates s ome of the real or potential impacts of drought and climate change and how groundwater may be better managed in the future.  Be sure to check it out. 

Please save the date of Wednesday, March 13 at 7:00 p.m. and plan to attend the 2019 State of the City with our new Mayor, Rich Constantine.  Families are encouraged to attend and we will have childcare available for children ages 4 - 10. We hope to see you there!

Make it a great week ahead! We look forward to your ongoing engagement and participation in all aspects of community life and local government in Morgan Hill.

PARTNER AGENCY NEWS

WEDNESDAYS ONLY

Water is always a precious resource in Morgan Hill and with this in mind, our permanent watering restrictions have been designed to best manage the City's potable water supply. These restrictions will help us avoid or minimize the effects of drought, climate change and the unreliability of the imported water infrastructure that serves the City of Morgan Hill.
From November 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019, watering is limited to Wednesdays only.
 
  • Irrigation is allowed before 9 AM or after 7 PM
  • Watering is limited to no more than 15 minutes per station 
  • Watering returns to the three day a week schedule on April 1, 2018
Complete rules and restrictions can be found in   Water Waste Ordinance No. 2236. Customers can report water waste  online or by calling the Water Waste Hotline at 408-310-4195.

Questions and Comments: 

DEVELOPMENTAL ASSET 
OF THE MONTH
 
Asset #14: ADULT ROLE MODELS:
Parents and other adults model positive, responsible behavior

Tips to Help You Implement Asset #14: 
Adult Role Models
  • Treat your youth with love and respect
  • Model appropriate behaviors. When you make mistakes, admit them. Apologize for failures.
  • Spend time together often. Be involved in your youth's life on a daily basis.
  • Ask your youth who are her/his role model(s) at school, after school program and/or sport teams, and why?
Visit the  Developmental-Asset-a-Month Calendar  for more tips!
Developmental assets are the positive values, relationships, skills and experiences that help youth and teens thrive. Young people with high asset levels are most likely to make healthy choices, while those with lower asset levels are more likely to get involved with negative or risky behaviors like violence, trouble in school, drug and alcohol use and more. The Search Institute of Minneapolis created the developmental assets framework. For more information, visit  www.search-institute.org
