Is there a neighbor who keeps an eye on the neighborhood during a morning stroll or secures grants to improve the neighborhood park? Perhaps someone who organizes block parties or welcomes new neighbors to the neighborhood? Whatever their contributions, here’s a chance to thank them by nominating them for the Mayor's Awards for Good Neighbors! Nominations for residents, businesses and organizations will be accepted through September 1st. For more information on the Good Neighbor program or to nominate a good neighbor, please go to http://energize.cityofboise.org/pressrelease/2016/07/good-neighbor-nominations/  Thank you to all those who make Boise a great place to live!

• We expect to be scheduling the Chipper truck again this fall, likely in late October, to help residents clear their yards of overgrowth (junipers, etc.). Any materials larger than the compost bins can handle will be appropriate for this service.

• To reiterate some posts from Nextdoor.com, there have been multiple thefts of bicycles and vehicle contents in our area this summer. Take extra precautions to secure your property; keep your cars locked. If you haven't already, please register your bicycle on the Boise Police Department website to aid in its recovery should it be stolen: https://police.cityofboise.org/home/downloads-online-services/bicycle-registration-form/
