Ashton and Dogs

Ashton citizens love dogs.

The City of Ashton has always been a home for pet lovers.  City Codes regulating animal owners were first passed in 1906 which regulated certain animals from ‘running at large’ (horses, mules, ducks and pigs – some of which are not allowed within the City now).  In 1918 the first ordinance pertaining to dog owners was passed.  This ordinance required the muzzling of dogs which were considered to have rabies.  Codes continued to be updated in 1952 and 1968 with regulations on licensing.  Dogs were required to be licensed and surprisingly the license fee has gone down

Keep It Dripping!

Keep It Dripping!

There have been some customers who have had their pipes freeze.  Letting the cold water in a faucet drip can prevent frozen service lines. The drip can be very slight and can be adjusted depending on the weather forecast. If the weather forecast calls for colder weather, the faucet should be adjusted to a larger drip.

Mountain Men and the Rendezvous

Mountain Men and the Rendezvous

During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, hats were an essential element of high fashion. Fur from the beaver pelt was the preferred fiber for the manufacture of quality hats. The Rocky Mountain area was home to the beaver which was prolific and plentiful. The Lewis and Clark Expedition documented this and led to the formation of the U.S. owned fur trade industry and the ultimate migration to and settlement of the west.
