Looking to the future and the next 50 years, members of the City Council opened a new chapter in the history of Yachats by hiring our first city administrator. The City’s new web site and awareness of the Trails Committee design work led to a discussion about the need for a new city logo. This topic was discussed by the council for a couple of months. A few modifications were suggested; implemented and adopted by the council at the July meeting. The new logo now appears on the city’s main web site.
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our community, we hope you will appreciate the new design as a symbol of renewal and a celebration of all the qualities that make Yachats the Gem of the Oregon Coast.
Prepare for emergencies and the possible "Big One" by joining Lincoln County Emergency Manager Virginia "Jenny" Demaris and the Yachats Emergency Preparedness Committee for the latest strategies and suggestions regarding the "Cascadia Event" (aka "The Cascadia Subduction Zone").
You're invited to this event and you have a choice between two identical presentations, for your convenience: Jenny represents the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office and has many effective strategies, ideas, and the big picture on what citizens and visitors to Yachats need to do in order to be ready.
MONDAY, APRIL 23, 2018, "What You Need to Know and Do when The Cascadia Event Unfolds" 2:00pm or 6:00pm in the multi-purpose room at the Commons: 441 N Hwy 101, Yachats
We had to remove some trees that were endangering structures and we have some rounds of various sizes. They can either be used for firewood, garden stools, or any other project you can envision.
They are available at the end of 6th street off of Oceanview Dr.
At Dahl Disposal Service, we are committed to recycling efforts and are asking our customers and clients to please “Keep it Clean” and only place acceptable items found on Dahl Disposal Services recycling guide, in the recycling cart. If you are in doubt please find out by calling us at 541-563-3888 or 541-336-2932 and by liking us on Facebook.
China has imposed tougher restrictions on recyclables because Americans toss large amounts of contaminated and non-recyclable materials into their recycling bins. At this time, recycling sorting facilities are asking our company to have our customers and clients join in and help us clean up materials collected for recycling. Non-recyclable materials drive up cost’s associated with sorting these materials, which end up costing customers and clients more money for recycling services.
Free wood chips are available to the public on W. 4th St. adjacent to Pontiac St. The chips will be available until they are removed in late June.

Update on the View of the Future and City Collaboration on the Evans/Betz Project:
This link will take you to a View the Future page describing the history of this project:
The City of Yachats utility billing software provider, Munibilling is no longer able to enter a payment on behalf of the customer over the phone nor walk in customers. The City of Yachats and Munibilling required to comply with new PCI requirements that prevent us from taking credit card or e-pay details on behalf of the customer. This is one of the many changes implemented to protect consumers and personal identity theft.
You will need to go to: https://cityofyachats.secure.munibilling.com, either log in, or create an account and you will need the Code at the bottom of your paper bill to set up an account. If you receive an online bill, you will need to call our office at 541-547-3565 ex. 101 or 103, to get your Code.
In the near future Munibilling will be implementing an IVR (phone based) solution for customers who come into our office to pay. These are industry requirements for the customers’ security. I hope this information helps you. Thank you
Clean Sweep Dates June 15-17 Your Public Works & Streets Commission is once again sponsoring the annual “Clean Sweep”. It will be from Friday, June 15, through Sunday afternoon June 17. For those of you new to Yachats, it’s your time to get rid of unwanted items around the house that you no longer need or want – and since one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, there’s a good chance that someone else will pick up and use your discarded item and put it back into use. Just bring your unwanted items to the street between the 501 Building and the ballfield, and volunteers will be there to assist you with unloading.
Dahl will not be able to take all of the items we were able to handle last year, and we will publish the most current “acceptable items” list in the June newsletter. Feel free to browse the discarded items during the weekend, and you can adopt any of them for free.
Our village is a place where natural resources are valued and protected, where diversity is celebrated, and where a vibrant economy and sense of community pride create and recreate a living spirit. Yachats cares not just for its citizens’ basic needs but also supports them in their efforts to excel mentally, physically, artistically, and spiritually. It is a community with an enduring sense of itself.
