WELCOME TO THE CORDOVA CALENDAR for the 22nd…

KLAM is excited to announce a new addition to our weekend programming.  You’ve heard the Carey Brothers for years with the ‘On The House Tip of the Day’ weekday mornings… well if all goes according to plan, we’ll be able to start carrying their longer Saturday show each week from 11am to 1pm, right after swap shop, starting August 24th.  James and Morris Carey offer home tips, share homeowner trends, and even answer questions from listeners.  So plan to join us Saturday the 24th from 11 to 1 on KLAM for On the House with the Carey Brothers -- sponsored by ACE Hardware on AM-1450.

An important reminder from the city that the water supply is still low -- so please don’t water lawns, wash cars, or hose down streets for dust.  We need to conserve all the water we can until things normalize.

Please remember that harbor users pay for the dumpsters at the harbor. Those are NOT publicly funded dumpsters. The harbor will charge a fee if household trash is being put in the harbor dumpster.

The city’s utility drop box has moved from the lower lot at the Cordova Center to the upper lot. It’s now located near the exit from the Cordova Center parking lot.

Public Works reminds everyone that toilet paper dissolves in minutes… but paper towels, feminine hygiene products, and wet wipes can take weeks or even months. The only things that you should flush down your toilet are human waste and toilet paper -- other materials clog the industrial grade sewer pumps, which causes them to become damaged and overheat, meaning more cost for public works, and higher utility bills for Cordova citizens. You may also be putting your own sewer line at risk for costly repairs or maintenance.  For more information, call 424-6200.
