Help with water bills available through RWA posted on 02/01/2018

The Rhododendron Water Association (RWA) has put into place for its water customers a Ratepayer Assistance Program (RAP).

The RAP provides any member of the association having difficulty paying their water dues to confidentially apply for financial assistance.

Funding will come from donations of RWA customers who wish to contribute to the program and other community donations or assistance programs. Only funds donated for the RAP will be used.

“The RWA Board is relying on the generosity of the Hoodland community and other RWA members to help fund the program,” RWA President Steve Graeper wrote in a press release. “The amount of assistance available will be solely dependent on the funds available through donation. A committee of three RWA board members will administer the program, review applications and determine eligibility and the amount of assistance for each applicant.”

The committee will accept applications through March 1 dues payment deadline.

“RWA sincerely hopes that the community will generously respond with donations when they realize the benefit of helping out neighbors who may find it difficult to make ends meet not only helps the recipient, but the entire Hoodland economy as well,” Graeper wrote. “To my knowledge, this is a first of a kind program offered for water users on the Mountain.”

Applications can be submitted through RWA by calling 503-622-5000, email at rhododendron.water@gmail.com or on the website at rhodywater.com. Donations may be sent to RWA, PO Box 163, Rhododendron, Oregon, or call 503-622-3000 to donate by credit card.


Logo Contest

The Rhododendron CPO is sponsoring a logo contest with a 10:30 a.m., March 17 deadline for submissions in order to be displayed that day at the Rhododendron CPO meeting.

“We would prefer as finished (a product) as possible … All entries will be displayed and the more finished an entry is the better chance it has to be voted among the top three (winners),” Graeper wrote to Will Frank of the Clackamas County Arts Alliance who is helping get the word out.

Preference for submissions will be a logo with something tangible to display such as a poster board display or 8.5-inch x 11-inch paper would also work, Graeper added. Presentation will help sell the work.

The logo will be used for numerous CPO displays, including T-shirts, coffee cups, etc.

Winning prizes include: 18 holes of golf and cart from The Resort at the Mountain; $25 gift certificate from the Skyway Bar & Grill; cross country/snowboard/or snowshoe rental from Otto’s in Sandy; and lift tickets for two for tubing or skiing at Skibowl. More prizes may be offered as businesses continue to donate. The contest is open to anyone.

Submissions should be mailed to Rhododendron CPO, PO Box 33, Rhododendron, Oregon 97049.
