The Citrus Heights Water District reported total water use was cut by 23 percent from January through March, compared to 2013 figures.

Odd-numbered addresses are on a Tuesday/Saturday watering schedule, while even-numbered addresses have a Wednesday/Sunday schedule.
Police, council remember life of man who volunteered thousands of hours
A life tribute and moment of silence was held during an April 28 city council meeting, in remembrance of a long-time resident and police department volunteer. 88-year-old Bud Scrivner passed away peacefully in his sleep on April 20, after a life of 88 years, 57 of which were spent living in Citrus Heights. Police said Scrivner volunteered nearly 6,000 hours serving at the front counter of the Citrus Heights Police Department over the past 10 years. He is said to have loved animals, tennis, playing saxophone and volunteering; he also held several lay positions at his church. In lieu of a service or flowers, his daughter has requested that donations be given to the Citrus Heights Animal Services division. (Photo and donation information)
Emergency-prep event draws families to Sunrise Mall, town center
“Dare to Prepare Day” drew hundreds of people out to Sunrise Mall and the Citrus Town Center for hands-on training and education about emergency preparedness. A popular exhibit featured a mobile trailer that people could sit in and experience what a 9.5 earthquake would feel like in real life. Other organizations and agencies had information booths and demonstrations set up where attendees could learn about disaster planning, walk into a mock first-aid field station, and even get to run through basic CPR exercises. Police also gave a training on active-shooter preparedness and offered free car seat safety checks.
