From The Chief
I just wanted to write a note and personally thank everyone who helped during the power outage crisis. In particular Social Services, Public Safety, Maintenance, Public Works, Fire Department and Housing. While there are many more individuals and community members I wanted to name a few that came to mind. We are really pleased with the way everyone came together to help our community members. I also realize this takes a lot of personal time away from other things including dealing with your own issues related to this problem. Thank you all again for your commitment and it is very much appreciated by us and more importantly by those we service.

Trust Fund Servies
It's almost that time of year again! We are gearing up for the annual Trust Fund per capita payout. If you are set up for direct deposit, it will be deposited on November 10. If you are not set up for direct deposit, checks can be picked up at the Sockalexis Arena Building on Friday, November 17 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you cannot pick up the check on Friday, they will be placed in the mail on Monday, November 20 and will no longer be available for pick up. Please remember, if we have an incorrect address for you, a check will not print. We will be doing a check run the week after payout, no manuals, so it's very important we have your correct contact information.
Other than parents picking up minor children's checks, we can only release your own check to you. You will not be able to pick up anyone else's check, regardless of relationship. Parents, please keep in mind that if your child has turned 18 or will by November 10th, their account has been placed in holdback until they fill out their own paperwork. When an account is in holdback, a check does not print. We do not yet know the amount of the payout.
Please contact Angie Brown at the number below for any questions. Thank you everyone!
