EARTH DAY

SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2018

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from our children.

Native American Proverb.

The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations.

T.E.A.M. TOBACCO FREE LOGO

Enjoy Tobacco Free Parks in Murray!

Village of Murray Board of Trustees approved a resolution that all city-owned recreational areas, parks, and playground areas shall be designated as “tobacco-free” and tobacco use shall be prohibited. The resolution took effect on March 13, 2018. Tobacco Education and Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M.) congratulates the board for their stance on creating healthy outdoor spaces for their citizens.

Village of Murray is the third Cass County community in the last few months to implement tobacco-free parks policies. Elmwood and Weeping Water passed similar policies in the fall of 2017.

"Young people are tomorrow's future. Smoking shortens those tomorrows.” said Stan Flak, Board of Trustee member.

The primary purpose of the resolution is to protect children from the potential dangers of secondhand smoke while at play in parks. The policy provides adults the opportunity to be non-tobacco using role models to youth on ball fields and playgrounds. Tobacco-free parks benefit the environment and it is through the reduction of cigarette butts litter that the health of local streams, lakes and rivers will continue to improve.

The policy prohibits use of all forms of tobacco products, i.e., cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes, pipes, and chew/dip in any park areas or facilities designated as tobacco-free. The resolution will be self-enforced by park users. Although law enforcement may ask the tobacco user to stop using tobacco products or leave the park property, tickets will not be issued. The intent is that residents willingly respect the policy and not use tobacco while enjoying Murray’s fantastic parks and recreation areas. Tobacco-free park areas will be clearly identified with “Tobacco-Free Park” signage.

For more information about Tobacco Free Parks, call Tobacco Education & Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M.) at 402.593.3642 or email rebekah.smart@alegent.org.

DOG & CAT PET LICENSES

There's no denying it.  We love our pets!  We feed and water them well, give them adequate shelter and spoil them like crazy with toys and treats. 
However, for the protection and health of all, and to further protect your pets,
PER VILLAGE CODE
you are required to get them vaccinated, licensed and pay the full fees due by Tuesday, May 1st.  In the event they accidentally get out the door and off your property, chances of them being returned to you sooner are much greater with proper tagging and identification.

Your pet's license will be valid for one year, from May 1, 2018 - April 30, 2019.

Fees for EACH cat or dog: 
Spayed/neutered: $11.25 
NOT spayed/neutered: $26.25

If you own more than six (6) dogs, a kennel license is mandatory. 
Call the Village Office, 402-235-2119, for more kennel information.

Due to an unprecedented number of complaints, the Village of Murray will be strictly enforcing our animal license and violation codes. If your animals are not licensed, by Tuesday, May 1st, you will be issued a citation and be charged the designated fines, and, if not paid, face prosecution.

Thank you!
