PLEASE BRING ALL DISCARDED NEEDLES TO THE BCEP OFFICE IN A HARD PLASTIC CONTAINER - discarded needles do not belong in the mixed paper, the plastic OR any of the recycle bins.   This is very dangerous for the staff to discover used needles “hidden” in the recyclables.  ALSO, soiled personal hygiene products should be disposed of in the trash.  Thank you for your cooperation. Questions gladly answered by any staff member or call 435-6237.



Dog licenses were due April 30. If your dog is not licensed by June 1st,  a late fee will be added on June 20th Civil Forfeiture will be issued when additional fee will be added.

We also have some special jewelry: owl necklaces and a cute cat necklace, cute earrings also.
