There’s still time to nominate a neighbor or business for the 14th Annual Yard of the Month awards program.
“This program is 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 Teri Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org; 541-469-1102 or Lauri Ziemer, email@example.com; 541-469-1103.
Eligible properties must be located within the City limits.
