The Emo spray park is in operation again.
It normally is open normally seven days a week from June until September from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. The Little House canteen also is open daily and has a variety of items available.
A reminder to parents and children using the spray park to clean off all sand, grass, and debris prior to entering to prevent the water system from clogging up and shutting down.
Violations of the rules will be grounds for immediate ejection from the spray park area.
Temporary or permanent suspension of use may result.
Violations can be reported to the Emo municipal office at 482-2378.

The following summer hours will be in effect until Sept. 30 at the Emo landfill site: Tuesdays from 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Thursdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
A reminder, too, about Emo’s new recycle program. Recycled materials can be dropped off at the bins beside the municipal garage, or taken directly to the dump and deposited in the proper locations.
The more we can recycle, the longer our dump will last—and the less it will cost us all in taxes.
