To assist residents as we focus on clean-up, the Public Works team will be accepting household refuse FREE of charge from Monday, the 28th of April through Friday, the 2nd of May. Baler hours are 8 - 3:30 pm. In addition, junk vehicles will be accepted for FREE at the landfill during this time - provided 1. all paperwork has been filled out (more information and forms can be found here) AND 2. they have contacted the Baler for a drop-off appointment (424-5600).
The City of Cordova and Cordova Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring a $750 Cordova Cleanup Business Beautification Prize to be awarded to a local business that best exemplifies the Cordova Cleanup Day tradition and vision. Criteria include painting, signage, landscaping, and trash management.
In addition to the monetary prize, the award recipient will receive a display sign and a certificate signed by the Mayor and Cordova Clean Up Committee.
The annual Cordova Cleanup Day will be held on May 3rd from 10 am - noon. Pick up garbage bags and plastic gloves at Cordova High School at 10 am and check the deployment map to see which areas of town need to be cleaned. Volunteers are invited to return to the school at noon for the volunteer picnic.
Large item pickup for disabled and senior community members is available by calling 907-424-7260.
The Baler will be open from 8 am to noon for free residential solid waste disposal, including electroics and household hazardous waste (i.e. batteries and paint.) Cars will be accepted free of charge at the landfill, provided that all fluids are drained and properly disposed of. Call the Baler at 424-5600 for details.
During Alaska Shield, the City tested the real-world alert siren, which is louder in volume and lasts for three minutes. This real-world siren should be heard in town, and out to the ferry terminal, Skaters Cabin, the Baler, and Mile 3 of the Copper River Highway. Feedback from residents indicated the siren could not be heard in the expected areas.
We want to be sure that we have the ability to alert the community in case of a real emergency so we are implementing some changes and will test the results on May 7th with another siren test.
Please pass the information on to your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors so that one one becomes alarmed unnecessarily.
Join Alyssa and Maria Kleissler for a live marionette performance with vintage marionettes on Friday, April 25th, beginning at 6:30 pm. There will also be face-painting and puppet-making.
For more information, call the library at 424-6667.
The community of Cordova is being featured on Today in America in various television markets across the nation. Hosted by Terry Bradshaw, the 5 minute segment highlights Cordova as a great place to live, work, and play.
Lack of precipitation means the mountains are not acquiring the snow-pack we will need later on this summer to provide sufficient water for the community. The City water department is currently running 2 filters for 16 hours/day instead of 1 filter for 8 hours/day at the Eyak Water Treatment Plan to keep up with our water needs. Please practice water conservation - no car washes for the time being, no pressure-washing driveways, and please don't leave your faucets running if you can turn them off. Thanks for your assistance and cooperation!
Over the next few weeks, be on the lookout for periodic road closures around town. Sunnier skies and drier weather give our streets crew a short-lived opportunity to do some road repairs. Be on the lookout for short-term closures and be prepared to change your route if need be.
