Public Works 

“Water Conservation” – As in past years, we are asking people whose address ends with an odd number (ex. 245) to water on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Those with an address that ends with an even number (ex. 356) to water on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. On Sunday, please limit your watering to the bare minimum. By doing this, it will help the City to conserve water, keep costs down, maintain better water pressure and a healthier lawn for you as a customer. Thank you!

“Sewer Information” – A reminder from our friends at the Iona Bonneville Sewer District… don’t flush those “flushable” wipes! Many wipes advertise the name “flushable” or “septic safe”, but they should not be flushed. Flushing wipes can cause clogs in the sewer system. These wipes do not biodegrade very quickly, which can cause massive clogs and the potential to cost you a lot of money later. If you end up with a blockage in the pipe connecting your home to the street, it is your reponsibility to repair at your own expense.

(*It’s important to note the scope of work was based on a worst case scenario meaning some of the costs outlined could be lower when the project is put out to bid and the overall cost of the project could be lower depending on potential grant money that could become available to help fund these improvements).
