Village Voice: Heart, health and air pollution

February is American Heart Month, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). That designation may not be cause for a large bouquet of flowers to be sent your way on Valentine’s Day, but some of the causes of heart disease are worth noting when considering our quality of life in Ada.

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S., according to CDC statistics.

While we have all heard the medical reports that diet and exercise may help reduce the risk of heart disease, we don’t often hear about the impact that breathing our air has on our hearts.

Village Voice: Nearly 40 percent of Ada water bills are estimated in January - here's why

A major goal of the Village’s water department is to be able to obtain an actual reading of water meter usage each and every month. Using an actual read each month helps both the consumer and the Village better budget and track water usage. 

Our ordinances do allow for the Village to use estimated readings for billing under certain circumstances.

2014 Ada municipal income tax forms available

The Village of Ada utilizes the services of Central Collection Agency (CCA), Division of Taxation, for municipal income tax issues. If you have filed municipal taxes in years past, you are may be accustomed to receiving a tax package, including tax forms, from CCA each January. In the interest of reducing costs, CCA will no longer be mailing those forms directly to you. You may receive an informational postcard in the mail from CCA, explaining the change to you.

The Village/Water office now has copies of the 2014 tax forms available. We will also be providing the Ada Public Library with a limited number of forms.

Village Voice: A reminder of what happens during snow emergencies

Village crews work around the clock through major snowfalls to keep the Village streets as safe and passable as possible. Please keep the following tips in mind:

- Crews do not wait for a snow emergency to be declared to begin clearing roads. If you are able to park your vehicles off the street, please do so. Once the public lots at the Depot and the corner of West Buckeye Avenue and North Gilbert Street are plowed, please consider using those lots.

Village Voice: Ready to un-deck the halls?

The holidays often find us with an excess of many things, including refuse.

Please remember to call the Water Office at 419-634-4045 or contact the office via email through the Village website, by the end of the day on Monday of each week, if you will have extra items for the regular weekly refuse pick up.

Waste Management may leave items that are outside of totes if we do not hear from you.

For your safety, please be sure to bag any refuse, including boxes and packaging. Refuse pickup after the holidays can be an ideal time for would-be thieves to scope out what new electronics and toys you may have received based on the boxes that have been left out for pick up.

Village Voice: Happy Holidays from the Village of Ada

The Village of Ada would like to wish everyone safe and happy holidays this season!

2014 has been a busy year of development, progress and growth in Ada, which is possible, in part, due to the cooperation and support of the residents.

Thank you for continuing to make Ada a great community this holiday season, and year round!
