The work crew and the equipment are available through a grant from the Division that requires an “In-Kind Match” from local residents and community businesses. Previous cleanups have exhausted the inventory of “In-Kind Match;” therefore, anyone wanting assistance in disposing of landscaping materials will be required to complete an In-Kind Matching Work Summary. Homeowners In-Kind Matching Work Summaries are available online at www.ogdenvalleyfiresafety.org, http://www. ogdenvalleyfiresafety.org/, from Nordic Valley street captains, or at the Eden Post Office bulletin board. Anytime you conduct yard work that mitigates fire danger to your property, please fill out one of the work summaries. You can also turn in receipts for landscaping services or lawn equipment purchased. In-kind matches are valid from any area resident, homeowner, or landowner. Cleared trees and brush neatly piled next to the road will be chipped between June 24 - 27. Please pile all branches and trees so that they are all facing the same direction. A large sign should be placed on the debris signifying if you would like to keep the mulch for personal use or if you want the Firewise Committee to The Wolf Creek area in Eden is bustin’ at the seams after a recent population explosion; six new babies were recently born within six weeks of each dispose of it at their discretion.
