This year’s National Night Out on Tuesday, August 1 at 6:00 pm will include a Bike Rodeo put on by Stanfield Police Officers. Officers will register bikes and there will be prizes for some of the bike rodeo games.

Good Neighbor Award
Also new this year at National Night Out is the Good Neighbor Award. It will recognize the ongoing efforts of Echo residents who are making contributions to improve the quality of life in their community.

Puncture Vine Program

Tuesday, August 1
Start Date

Beginning August 1 and running until funds are depleted, the city will pay $1 per bag as a bounty for the noxious “Goat Head” puncture vine weed.

Property owners and/or renters are responsible for controlling this weed on their property and the sidewalk and road edges adjacent to your property, but the city has started a bounty about four years ago to help eliminate this noxious weed.

Only Goat Head seeds and vines will count toward the bounty. No other weeds such as tumbleweed are allowed. The weeds must be removed from sites within the city limits.

The puncture vine and its seeds (Goat Heads) need to be collected in bags provided by the city and returned to City Hall to receive the $1 per bag bounty. Bags can be picked up at City Hall Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Christopher Leebrick, has dazzled audiences with his remarkable storytelling ability since he was just thirteen years old. Children and adults throughout the United States enjoy his extensive repertoire of world folk tales, legends, whoppers, and original stories.
