Did You Know?

With the exception of the new street lights installed within the Streetscape project, the Town of Strasburg does not maintain or repair any street lights.

If you should have a street light out in your neighborhood you can locate the Shenandoah Valley Electric Co-op (SVEC) pole number and call SVEC at 1-800-234-7832 to report the outage.

As a courtesy to residents you can report the outage to your Public Works Department at 465-3025 or yourgov.cartegraph.com. We will collect the pole number and report it to SVEC. Please keep in mind that once reported to SVEC we have no control over when they perform the repairs.

Could we get shades that focus the light downward so we can reduce our light pollution? The night sky can be beautiful here in town if there was less light being directed into the sky.

How about fixing king st. You can do queen st 8 times a year but haven’t touched king st in years, probably 10-20years

Is That a Water Leak?

With our area receiving over 60 inches of rainfall last year it can be difficult to determine if standing or flowing water is caused by rain or an underground water line leak.

The water mains are installed three to six feet beneath the surface of the public right-of-way. Water can surface near the leak or travel several hundred yards underground from the leak and surface within the right-of-way or on private property.

If you notice clear water bubbling from the surface, similar to a natural spring, in an area that usually has no flowing water then it may be a water line leak.

If you do spot a possible water leak please contact your Public Works Department at 465-3025 or report using yourgov.cartegraph.com. We will be happy to investigate the area to determine if it is an actual water line leak.

They didn’t touch mine today at all. Does the trash company have a policy on weight or something ? Is not like there is anything out of the ordinary , except just normal trash volume. I’m very disappointed . This is the third time they did this to us. We live on north Massanutten . Please advise them , if for whatever reason they can’t pick up they need to tell us why.

NOTICE TO RESIDENTS:

The Rt. 55 Water Storage Tank at 2082 John Marshall Hwy will be out of service from October 29th – November 9th, 2018. The tank serves as storage water for the industrial park, Route 11 area; starting at Crystal Hill wrapping around Radio Station Road to Borden Mowery Drive. To improve the water quality, we plan to install equipment necessary to reduce disinfection by-products. We estimate the project to take two weeks and during that time water pressure and volumes may be reduced. Should users experience low pressure or volume during this period please contact Town Hall at 540-465-9197.

Also could you briefly touch on what this project will entail? Maybe what equipment we (the tax payers) will be paying for to fix this water problem? The same problem that has plagued this town for over 5 years? Thank you

Callie Wood-Hernandez

Hopefully the town will take the increased water and sewer rates and their loans from the VRA and actually put in new water storage tanks, or repair our existing ones to remedy the carcinogen contamination in our water supply. Hoping this is not just a band aid to get us by for a couple years. Our beautiful community deserves better.

Recently, we have seen an increase in thefts from unattended vehicles throughout the Town of Strasburg. A common trend throughout these incidents is the suspects are seeking out unlocked vehicles. Strasburg Police Department remains committed to proactively patrolling our neighborhoods around the clock, but we could use your help. Here are some tips to help deter thefts from your vehicles. • Lock all of your vehicles every day - no exceptions! Thieves are frequently deterred by locked doors as their mission is to move quickly without drawing attention. Locking your doors the most efficient way to prevent this. • Use motion sensing lights if possible. The activation of a motion sensing light makes your property a much harder target! • Be observant of your neighborhood and look out for one another. If you see any suspicious activity, report it immediately at (540) 459-6101. We will gladly come and take a look. ... See MoreSee Less

Mr. Ridgeley, The reason you don't see the charge on your bill is because your landlord provides the dumpster to you and it is not a town service.

There has been an uptick in reports of solicitors in the Town of Strasburg. Under Strasburg Town Code 58-27, solicitation is only permitted in Strasburg with a valid permit, issued by the Police Department. For the purposes of Town Code 58-27, a solicitor is defined as "a person who goes from door to door visiting multifamily or single-family dwellings to sell any goods, wares, merchandise or services or accept subscriptions or orders therefor, or to accept or request donations for any charitable purpose." Here are some helpful tips when it comes to encounters with solicitors. DO: - Ask to see a solicitation permit if anyone comes to your residence attempting to sell something. - Call Dispatch at 459-6101 if the individual cannot, or refuses to, provide a solicitation permit. - Try to gather a description of the solicitor(s) to include what they're wearing, what they're selling, direction of travel, and vehicle description if they are traveling by vehicle. DON'T: - Allow or invite a solicitor inside of your home for any reason. - Answer any questions from solicitors about security systems or safety features of your home. - Engage solicitors in a confrontation. ...

As the weather continues to get warmer and more people come out to enjoy the sun, we wanted to take a minute to share a few safety reminders. As you drive through town, especially in the downtown area and in residential areas, please drive slowly and exercise caution. Pay attention to the crosswalks and remember to yield right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks. If you are crossing the street, always look both ways and use a crosswalk when feasible. Look out for children playing outside who may run into the roadway unexpectedly. Parents, talk to your children and remind them to play safely and stay in the yard at all times. Watch for motorcycles, bicycles, mopeds, and scooters and share the road. They are not as large as passenger cars and can be difficult to see if you are not paying attention. We are looking forward to another beautiful spring and summer in the Shenandoah Valley. Thank you in advance for helping make it a safe one! ... See MoreSee Less

On a daily basis, dispatchers from the Shenandoah County Emergency Communications Center take hundreds of phone calls throughout the county. From Strasburg to New Market, from barking dog to baby not breathing, and everything in between, dispatchers are the ones who set everything in motion. Every single fire, rescue, and law enforcement call for service starts and finishes with dispatchers. Our dispatchers routinely go above and beyond their regular duties to assist us all in doing our jobs and, unfortunately, they rarely receive the credit they deserve. Citizens often thank first responders for their work when the fire is out, the wound is stitched, or the bad guy is on his way to jail, but nobody ever calls back to say "thank you" to the ones who sent us to the emergency in the first place. On that note, in celebration of the start of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, we would like to extend the greatest thanks possible to all of our dispatchers at the Shenandoah County ECC. THANK YOU for all that you do, from all of us here at Strasburg Police Department! ... See MoreSee Less

We keep taking away trees, buildings etc. Our town is losing its look. Part of our history is our past. Driving thru several towns this pm noticing how much alike they are. All up and down the Valley. Same colors , sidewalks, building materials etc. Dollar General, Family Dollar, banks etc all the same. Our imagination and originality are gone. Like our tree that was a beacon. Now gone for the new, and improved event space.

Time for an upgrade , bigger and fuller Christmas tree 🎄 for more lights and ornaments 🤗🤪🤪

It's much cheaper for a certified Arborist to diagnose what's wrong with the tree and give it what it needs than to tear up the sidewalk and plant another tree.

This is terrible I say we start a petition

I have a memory from when I was younger then 4 of my granny (she's gone now) taking me to see the Christmas tree lit on main street. I remember everyone was standing in the street. Was probably 1998-2000. Save the tree. :(

So very sad. This tree was an anchor to the streetscape and was visually uplifting seeing it all lit up during the holiday season. My fear is the new tree will be lost in the event space. 😢

Pretty soon, it will all be gone. So sad....

I’m trying to be patient with the Town’s revitalization project, but as David mentioned, the downtown area used to be lined with trees. When we moved here 10+ years ago, it had a quaint and charming look to it. Sadly, I can’t say that’s the case today. Hoping the next phase of development will help with that.

Sorry to hear this. OLD TREE POWER!

And it's down and gone. Our town is changing fast. Curious to see the size of the wow factor? That does not look like a very big foundation for the event space building. Or is it the first phase???

😞

Sad!

Talk to Billy Jenkins if you want to commemorate it like the Bradford pear trees were commemorated.

My elderly mother put hers out. Hope they get it, but if not, hope it's good sitting there til Saturday. I AM on FB a lot, but still missed this somehow.

there has to be a better way to communicate important information to residents. not every town resident is on FB. even of those who are, most don't log in to FB hourly. how are folks supposed to know when there's important information from the town? The town's website is down. even if folks knew that there is an important message from the town, they can't get on the website to read it. there's got to be a better way.

Just put ours upfront with tons of recycle ♻️ stuff and almost fall on my butt , probably will leave it there then

So what's the deal with trash this morning? Picking up?

Have they decided if they are picking ip trash this morning?

Are they picking trash up today?

Dern, just put ours out, no problem

Any word yet?

The elves need help once again. A letter was left last night in the mailbox from Bianca. It was written on a large index card and Bianca would like Santa to bring her Pick Me Pops. If anyone knows Bianca, please email an address to akeller@strasburgva.com
Also, we are still looking for an address for Dysylis and Lola. Thanks for all the help in finding addresses for children. We hope no child is disappointed by not getting a letter back.

Have you "mailed" your Santa letter yet? The mailbox at the Town Hall will be taken down tomorrow morning by 8:30 a.m. (Wednesday, December 13). If your child hasn't had a chance to visit the mailbox, please stop by tonight and mail that important letter. We want to make sure all return letters are delivered before Christmas.
Santa is also looking for addresses for two letters that were left several days ago. The names of the children are Dysylis and Lola. If you know these children, please email an address to akeller@strasburgva.com Thanks.

The Strasburg Police Department will be deploying noise distraction techniques near North, Newman, Mineral, and Washington Streets in an attempt to relocate the buzzards that are roosting in the area. This is a first line defense that is safe and harmless to the birds. This will start immediately and will last approximately two (2) weeks. The deploying noise will happen at dusk. ...

They keep coming back

They won't work lol

It will take a few times but they will move to a different area around and I'm ok with them doing it so they can roost and destroy .... not my stuff. Then maybe others will understand our frustration with theses destructive vultures and why the SPD has acknowledged and are addressing it.

TOWN DECLARES DROUGHT WARNING CONDITION; ENCOURAGES VOLUNTARY WATER CONSERVATION MEASURES
As a result of low river flow levels, the Town of Strasburg hereby declares a Drought Warning Condition and encourages all residents and businesses to begin voluntary water conservation measures.
In accordance with the Virginia Water Protection withdrawal permit issued by the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the provisions set forth by the Northern Shenandoah Valley Regional Water Supply Plan, the Town of Strasburg is required to follow a drought response plan.

Drought Response River Flow (cfs)
None >175
Drought Watch 175 to 116
Drought Warning 115 to 91
Drought Emergency <=90
Should river flow levels fall below a seven day moving average of 115 cubic feet/second (cfs), the Town of Strasburg will declare a Drought Warning Condition. As of December 6, 2017, the seven day average flow had dropped to 108 cfs. All citizens, including private well users, are encouraged to continue the Drought Watch measures and observe additional Drought Warning voluntary water conservation actions.

Drought Watch Recommendations
All water users are encouraged to:
• Reduce or eliminate outside watering and take other steps to reduce outside water consumption, such as:
o Mow lawns to 2 inches or more and leave clippings (higher cut encourages grass roots to grow deeper to hold soil moisture better than closely clipped lawn).
o Use mulch around plants to reduce evaporation.
o Aerate lawn to reduce evaporation.
o Avoid over fertilizing your lawn. Fertilizer applications increase the need for water. Apply fertilizers that contain slow‐release, water‐insoluble forms of nitrogen.
o Place rain barrels under gutter downspouts to collect water for plants, car washing, or general cleaning projects.
o Plant native or dry‐loving (xeric) plants in landscaping.
o Avoid washing cars and other vehicles.
• Reduce inside water usage by:
o Using automatic dishwasher only when load is full.
o Installing faucet aerators, low-flow shower heads, and water efficient toilets.
o Avoiding running water to get cold temperature; keep a pitcher of cold water in the refrigerator.
o Minimizing use of garbage disposals.
o Limiting showers to 5 to 10 minutes / day / person.
o Wrapping hot water heater and pipes with insulating material.

Additional Drought Warning Recommendations:
In addition to the Drought Watch recommendations all water users are encouraged to:
o Use a broom instead of a hose to clean driveways, walks and patios.
o Not wash hard surfaces or buildings.
o Turn off ornamental fountains or other such structures, unless the water is recycled.
o Reduce lawn watering to no more than 2 times a week, between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.
o Reduce vegetable garden watering by watering only when needed, between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m.
o Apply water directly to plant by using soil-soakers or drip irrigation. Avoid the use of sprinklers.
o Not plant new landscaping or grass.

It should be noted that these are voluntary water conservation measures. Should additional, mandatory measures be required, citizens will be notified. Please contact the Town office with any questions, and monitor the Town’s website and social media outlets for additional information.

All we need is a return address. Santa furnishes the stamps! Thanks

How long does it usually take to get a return letter, my daughter dropped hers off almost 2 weeks ago. 🙃

Do we need a self addressed envelope to be in with the letter or is the return address on the outside of the envelope good enough?
