Learn more about pepper spray: A recent neighborhood meeting about pepper spray was so popular in Granite Falls that another is planned.

At the meeting, held earlier this month, local police talked about the pros and cons of pepper spray for personal protection. The department is looking at October for the next installment. Attendees do not have to live in town.

For more information, follow the “Granite Falls Police Department” page on Facebook.

Marysville fire future: Talks continue about the future of the Marysville Fire District. Since 1991, the fire district and the city have worked together to manage firefighting resources. That system has been under review for several years now. The two entities hope to make a preliminary decision about what happens next before the end of September.
