          A detention pond that will improve drainage in the Navarre Avenue and Pickle Road area is among the highlights in Oregon’s proposed 2018 budget.

        “We’ve been working on this for a couple of years now. It will finally get under construction,” City Administrator Mike Beazley told The Press last week. “It’s a significant investment for the city and it’s an opportunity to continue to improve our ability to fight heavy rains and control flooding in our neighborhoods. It will serve the Navarre Avenue and Pickle and Brown roads area. That’s the biggest project we have underway.”

        The detention pond will be large enough to hold a 10-year rain event, he said.

       After receiving a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation,, officials in the Village of Elmore have moved a village-owned nativity scene from Ory Park, where for years it was displayed during the Christmas season, to the front yard of a resident on Rice Street. The letter advised the village that placing the display on a public park was unconstitutional.

        However, the scene could be back at Ory Park next Christmas, Mayor Matt Damschroder says.
