Welcome to the City of North Bonneville Sticky

One of Washington 's best kept secrets, North Bonneville is ideally located between the recreational attractions of the Columbia Gorge and the metropolitan Portland area, just 45 miles away.

From the Mayor's Desk - November 2015

As a kid growing up, whenever I made a bad decision my dad would tell me, “Everybody makes mistakes, next time make a new one.” I always appreciated him pointing out my errors while also reminding me that in many cases the lessons we learn through those mistakes tend to stay with us, hopefully preventing us from making them again.

Halloween Safety Tips

Walk Safely

  • Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
  • Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.
  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  •  Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.

A Reminder for Residents

If you intend to leave your premises for some extended time period (less than 180 continuous days in duration), the City will continue to charge you the bi-monthly water and sewer utility base rate in your absence. If you intend to leave your premises for an extended period of time [more than 180 continuous days] you may request the City shut off your water meter during this time period. The City will charge you a $60 turn-on fee but you will not be subject to the monthly base water and sewer rate during that time frame.

The recent wastewater system problem we experienced gave us another chance to use the Southwest Washington Public Alert system to notify our residents of the issue. The calls also asked us not to flush our toilets or run water down any drains until notified it was okay to do so. Our Public Works team was able to resolve the problem in a few hours and a second series of robocalls were made to notify us it was okay to resume using the system.

Seasonal Water Hydrant Flushing

During the second week of October, Public Works will be flushing out the City's fire-hydrants between the hours of 9am and 2pm. During this flushing, your tap water may look cloudy, however rest assured this is a temporary condition and the water safe to drink.

From the Mayor's Desk - September 2015

Fall doesn’t officially start until September 23rd this year but it looks and feels a lot like it’s here already. The much-needed rain we’ve been getting over the past several days and the brightly colored leaves blowing around town are clear signs summer is coming to an end. Among other things, the arrival of fall signals shorter days ahead, the imminent end of hot weather and the start of a new school year.

From the Mayor's Desk - August 2015

At a recent City Council meeting a resident asked what the siren we are all so used to hearing means and whether there were different durations or numbers of blasts to signify different things. I had to say I wasn’t sure but I would check into it and put the answers in the next newsletter and here we are.

Citizen of the Year - Norman Dillard

How does one choose a Citizen of the Year? We look around for a silent hero. A Citizen of the Year is responsibility-to-the-community personified. The one chosen must be an example of altruism - a representative of the area whose purpose is to help others.

City Vegetation Pile Update

The City of North Bonneville Utility Crew is requesting your help.

Starting this year the City is asking that when residents come to the dump area that they separate their yard vegetation into two piles – a burn pile and a compost pile.
