City of Morgan Hill Weekly 411
Week of November 18,  2018
Happy Thanksgiving Morgan Hill. We wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday.

Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday there will be no City Council meeting this Wednesday, November 21.  The next City Council meeting will be Wednesday, November 28.

Also due to the holiday week, we will not be sending the Weekly 411 out for the week of November 25. This will be mean that there will be no City Council Agenda Preview for the November 28 meeting.  You can, however,  sign up to be notified when agendas are posted.  The November 28 City Council meeting agenda will be posted by the end of the day November 21.
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.

WATERING IS LIMITED TO
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. For more information, visit  mhvalueswater.com, email  environ@morganhill.ca.gov or call 408-310-4169. Thank you for conserving water!

DEVELOPMENTAL ASSET 
OF THE MONTH
 
Asset #41: Positive Cultural Identity
 

Tips to Help You Implement Asset #41: Positive Cultural Identity
  • Share stories about your youth's cultural background to provide understanding and appreciation of their heritage.
  • Teach them their nativ language or a traditional game or dance.
  • Allow your youth to meet and conserve friends from different nationalities and let them learn about their culture.
  Click here  for more information about this month's developmental asset! 

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
