Child Restraint Installation
Thursday July 28, 2016
Parents and caregivers who need help knowing how to install child restraint systems can receive that help Friday.
The McMinnville Police Department, McMinnville Fire Department and Warren County Sheriff's Department will be partnering with Advance America to assist parents and caregivers with the proper installation of child restrain systems.
It will take place Friday from 10am until noon and from 2pm until 4pm at Northgate Shopping Center.
Police say motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children in the United States, but many of those fatalities could have been prevented. Placing children in age and size appropriate restrain systems reduces serious and fatal injuries by more than half.

Brush Collection Complete
Jay Walker Wednesday July 27, 2016
Public Works crews removing storm damaged tree limbs have completed their initial sweep of the entire city. Public Works Director Brad Hennessee said brush collection has returned to the normal schedule, but there was some brush that the city was unable to pick up for various reasons, such as brush mixed with trash and junk, too far off the road, or brush that is too heavy for the truck to lift or too long to safely transport.
Hennessee said brush and trash must be separated and brush must be placed where it can be reached from the street and cut into sections less than 8 feet in length.
