[ARCHIVED] City Announces 13th Annual Yard of the Month Program

Spring is here and the City of Brookings is accepting nominations from the public for its 13th Annual Yard of the Month awards program.

“This program is a such a great way to honor City of Brookings business and property owners who go the extra mile to make their property look attractive, and by so doing, make the City as a whole look better,” said Mayor Hedenskog.

The Yard of the Month program, begun in 2002, recognizes the most attractive residential and commercial properties inside the City limits, May through September. Monthly award recipients receive a $50 credit on their water bill or annual business license fee, a commemorative certificate and a sign posted at their property declaring their award winning status.

“The City Council thoroughly enjoys giving out these monthly awards,” Mayor Hedenskog said. “It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”

Nominations may be made by email or phone to Joyce Heffington at; 541-469-1102 or Lauri Ziemer,; 541-469-1103.

Eligible properties must be located within the City limits.
