New Brighton Parks and Recreation is planting trees at Hansen Park to celebrate Arbor Day on Friday, April 29 at 9:30 a.m. Organizers say meet at the Fifth St. and 16th Ave. N.W. parking lot, bring a shovel and dress for the weather.
New Brighton Public Library branch manager Meg Robertson and library page Dawood Sultani worked the front desk April 9. This Ramsey County Library branch, located in the New Brighton Community Center, has new hours of operation.
We all can be preserving water from city wells and I acknowledge the city manager’s concern about water shortages. To help conserve water he has prohibited “filing home pools and home car washing.” I take exception to washing your car at home versus using a commercial car wash found at service stations. Commercial car washes use more water than washing your car at home. In effect the city is mandating wasting water. I’m confident there are additional water-saving methods/ideas to save water that can be implemented that may be more effective.
The next meeting of the Ramsey County Library Board will be Wednesday, April 20. The meeting will be held in the board room of the Ramsey County Library in Roseville, 2180 Hamline Avenue North, starting at 6:30 p.m.
