Police Dept. Christmas Baskets & Angel Gift Tree

Once again the Baker City Police Department is partnering with Salvation Army to collect non-perishable items for Christmas food baskets, which are then provided to families in need throughout our community.  The Baker City Police Department also has a tree decorated with Angel Tree gift tags, located in the lobby at the Police Department (1768 Auburn Avenue).

If you would like to pick up an Angel Tree gift tag and purchase the wished-for gift for a local child, you can return the unwrapped gift to the Police Department or call to have an officer pick up the item from you.

If you would like to donate any non-perishable food item for the Christmas food baskets, please drop them off at the Police Department in the food barrel or call to have an officer pick up your food items.

If you do wish to have an officer pick up any of these items, please call the department reception desk at (541) 524-2014. The lobby is open Monday thru Thursday, from 8:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. and Friday from 10:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. The last day to turn in a gift or a non-perishable item is Friday, December 19, 2014.

Cast in Place Pipe Work

Beginning Monday, November 3, 2014, PEC Corporation from Helena, Montana, under contract with the Baker City Public Works Department will be lining several wastewater main lines in town. The process being used is "Cast in Place Pipe" (CIPP). Benefits of this process include no excavation or surface restoration necessary, 50+ year design life, project completion with minimal disruption of service or traffic, and considerable cost savings vs. the traditional excavation method of pipeline rehabilitation or replacement.  

The work is expected to take up to two weeks. Work will be completed in various areas of Baker City (see list below). Cleaning and line inspection activities were recently completed.   

Your cooperation and patience during this project is appreciated.  If you have any questions, please contact Baker City Public Works (541) 523-2046 or (541) 524-2020.
