Limits begin on Reclaimed water Monday
The seasonal restrictions for Pinellas County reclaimed-water customers will begin Monday. The restrictions help avoid reclaimed water shortages during Florida's traditional dry seasons of April to June and October to November. From Monday to June 30, irrigation with reclaimed water supplied by Pinellas County is limited to three days per week, based on the resident's home address. Watering is prohibited between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. No reclaimed watering is permitted on Mondays. If your house number ends in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8), water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. If your house number ends in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. If your property contains a mix of addresses or if an address cannot be determined, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision, water on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Contact Pinellas County at www.pinellas county.org/reclaimed or call (727) 464-4000.

Honor the city with a block party
The city encourages neighborhood associations and groups to hold block parties on Celebrate Clearwater Neighborhoods Day April 13. The event showcases the diversity and accomplishments of city neighborhoods. City leaders will travel across the town that day to visit party sites. Residents are encouraged to share ideas and concerns with each other and city leaders. "This is the 14th anniversary of this event, and we'd like to encourage and engage neighborhoods that have not participated in the past," said Mayor George Cretekos. Neighborhoods that register for a party receive block party kits. The deadline to register is Monday. Call (727) 562-4554.
