ANNUAL FIREMEN'S BREAKFAST
The Village of Linden Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank everyone that came out to support them on Saturday. Without your support, the volunteers would have a much tougher job. Your donations help to buy new equipment and pay for courses to keep our guys trained to react quickly and correctly. Thank you.

FREE Summer Day Camp
Starts Thursday July 3 and will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays until August 26 at the skating rink. Sign in at 9 AM and pick your children up at 3 PM. There will be games, crafts and lots of activities to keep your children busy throughout the day. They need to bring a lunch, snacks, water, hat and sunscreen. For more information, contact the village office

WATER RATE INCREASE
Over the past year or so, the Village has seen a number of small increases to the rate we pay Aqua 7 Regional Water Commission to purchase water for our residents. Aqua 7 has had increases passed onto them from the Town of Drumheller. The Village has managed to maintain our rate until now, so effective July 1st the water rate our customers pay will be $3.70 per cubic meter (that is an increase of 10¢ per cubic meter).

TAX NOTICES
Tax notices have been mailed on June 11, 2014. If you have any questions regarding your notice, please contact the village office. The deadline for remitting your 2013 Property Tax levy is July 31st, 2014. Please ensure that your payment is at the Village Office on or before this date. The Village also offers a tax payment plan.
