UPDATE: The following information has been updated as of 10-20-2020. We apologize for the earlier misinformation from Republic Services. The original pick up schedule posted was wrong. However, Republic Services WILL pick up the leaves that have been put out on the street either today or tomorrow (October 20 or 21).
The leaf pick-up days are scheduled for the following Mondays: October 26, November 9, and December 7. Please rake leaves into the street just before the collection dates. Rows should be long and narrow and two feet away from the curb. Be sure that you are not blocking bike lanes, storm drains or driveways. Please move vehicles off the streets on street sweeping days. Parking is available at City Hall.
The Corvallis School District will be providing free breakfasts and lunches for children ages 1-18. The meals will be delivered by drive up so that families do not need to get out of their vehicles. The open meal site will be held at the Santiam Christian School Parking lot Mondays through Fridays from 12:00 – 12:45 starting April 30th, 2020.
My name is Karla McGrath and I joined the CERT Program because I wanted to contribute to the community beyond what I do as a staff person at City Hall. What I learned from the training will allow me to do that, but it also taught me how to be prepared for an emergency myself. The program emphasizes putting your family first before responding to a disaster in your City. I also appreciated learning how the program manages leadership communication – how they make sure that instructions are given clearly and understood well up and down a chain of command. It was fascinating and encouraging.
The Adair Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) includes Adair residents: Becky Currier, Delores Jean Pollard, Alan Rowe, Kevin Armstrong, Karen Ross; and Adair staff, Karla McGrath. We have put together a video linked below that highlights what we want our community to know about CERT. The Adair CERT team of volunteers will continue training monthly so that we will be ready to serve our community when the City requests it.
We hope that you will consider your own emergency response readiness and perhaps consider joining the next training course set to begin in September 2020. The course is taught by lead teacher, Jerry Jackson, who has a wealth of knowledge and experiences that make him an outstanding teacher and resource for participants. His co-teachers include Phil Harkins, retired firefighter; Chuck Harris, retired ARFD Fire Chief; and Peggy Pearson, CERT Instructor. For More information contact Jerry Jackson at email@example.com or 541-745-5507.
Mayor Bill Currier has instructed the city office to close temporarily due to the declared COVID-19 public health emergency, but city employees are still working and taking calls. The City’s business, services and operations are continuing without interruption. The office closure is for the purpose of maintaining social distance to reduce health risks for all persons concerned.
Please continue to make utility payments online or in the drop box located in the parking lot of City hall. However, do not put cash payments in the drop box. When the office reopens, we will resume taking cash payments at that time. If you have questions concerning your bill or other City matters, please call us at 541-745-5507. Thank you.

On April 9, 2019, at approximately 12 p.m., the City of Adair Village had a main line break resulting in loss of pressure to a large portion of the City.
**As a result, the City is implementing a 48 hour boil water notice as a precaution.**
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY AND UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, WATER MUST BE BOILED FOR A MINIMUM OF ONE (1) MINUTE PRIOR TO DRINKING, COOKING, BRUSHING TEETH, WASHING FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, PREPARING BABY FORMULA, MAKING ICE AND CLEANING FOOD CONTAINERS AND SURFACES.
Customers will be notified when they no longer have to boil their water.
The City has no reason to believe there is any threat due to this situation. Again, this is just a precaution mandated by State law.
