Yard of the Month
The City of Adams will be having the Yard of the Month contest from June-September this summer. There is a 4 person committee who will be on the lookout for outstanding yards in Adams in the last week of each month. The winner of each month will receive $50 off their next water bill for the City of Adams, a sign for their yard during their month proclaiming the award and, if the winner approves, their name, address and property pictures in the Adams newsletter, webpage and Facebook page. We will be choosing a yard for being the best in one of three categories: Overall appeal-well taken care of, lots of flowers and color, excellent curb appeal Best groomed-immaculate lawn grooming, trimmed shrubbery, clean walkways Most improved-a yard that has seen improvement in overall care, new plants or trees and property clean-up If you would like to nominate a yard in the City of Adams, e-mail the address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
