SAVE OUR WATER
The City of Twentynine Palms reminds residents (and visitors) to help conserve our precious water resources. Gov. Jerry Brown issued an executive order April 1, 2015, directing the State Water Resources Control Board to implement mandatory water reductions in cities and towns across California. Twentynine Palms Water District has been directed to reduce water usage by 28 percent. Citizens are asked to be aware of the drought and Save Water! More information is available at www.saveourwater.com

GOT POTHOLES? Call 367-ROAD
The Public Works Department is busy filling potholes in Twentynine Palms. When the weather warms up, the city’s asphalt roads react with an outbreak of potholes and fractured road surfaces caused from the winter moisture. According to Public Works Superintendent Jose Nieves, the road repairs keep city crews on the move. Twentynine Palms residents can report large potholes or road problems in their neighborhood by calling Public Works at 367-ROAD. “If you leave a message,” Nieves said, “we will get back to you in one business day.” Photo: James Thompson (left) and Mike Mintz patching Mesquite Springs Road in 2009.

FAMILY DISASTER PLANNING
The City of Twentynine Palms reminds its residents to review their Family Disaster Plan. As with any city, Twentynine Palms has the potential to experience a multitude of natural disasters. After witnessing disasters throughout the world, many of us ask, “Am I as prepared as I should be in the event of an emergency?” Recent events have shown us that we need to be prepared to survive for up to 72 hours before outside assistance may arrive. Copies of the free guide "Your Family Disaster Plan" are available at City Hall, 6136 Adobe Road, or click the link below to download a copy in Adobe PDF. For more information on disaster planning, contact the City's Emergency Services Coordinator, Ron Peck, at (760)367-6799.
