It helps saves the employee(s) time in finding and accessing needed documents, easy to distribute documents throughout an organization and to the public if needed, reduces paper records filing costs, we are able to easily back-up documents in case of disaster (flood, fire, theft, etc.), and saves on the wear and tear of paper records.

Important Information

The City of Iona’s Planning & Zoning Commission has scheduled the following Public Hearings on the evening of October 14th, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. at the Iona City Building, which is located at 3548 N. Main Street, Iona, ID. Subsequent Public Hearings will be held by the City Council for final approval on October 20th, 2020 at 7:15 p.m. The Public Hearings are as follows:

“Fence Permit Now Required” – In order to insure the safety and correct location of new fences, a permit will now be required to install a fence on a property line. This requires a $50 permit fee for the City to process the application and verify the correct placement of the fence.

Public Works 

“Tree Trimming in October” –– The Public Works Department will be trimming trees throughout the month of October. The Iona City Code § 8-4-11 states, “All owners, or persons in control of private real property upon which a street tree or shrub is growing, shall remove or trim, at his or her expense, all limbs or foliage which overhang or project into any public street, sidewalk, alley or easement and which interfere with public travel or use of such public way or easement or which do not satisfy the clear view and corner clearance requirements of the City Zoning Ordinance. Street trees and shrubs shall be trimmed from the ground level to at least twelve feet (12’) above any public
street, public easement or alley, and to at least eight feet (8’) above the curb and sidewalk.”
 
The City will be trimming trees and shrubs in October throughout the City to avoid safety concerns and future accidents. If you have a tree that is impeding a public street, sidewalk, alley or easement, please get your “street trees” trimmed in the first two weeks of October. Any trees left after these two weeks will be trimmed by the city as per City Code § 8-4-13 Please contact the Public Works Department at 208-716-0836 to discuss any needs for assistance if you are unable to trim your own street trees. We cannot assist with private property work, only trees located in the public right-of-way. There will be a “branches-only” drop-off located in the compound on the northeast corner of Iona Square Park. If you are unable to haul your branches off on your own, the city will be able to do it for you. This will be available to the public only through the month of October. Thank you.

“City Parks” – Our parks remain open, but it is up to the individual using the park to be aware of and follow safety guidelines. The surfaces are not being regularly disinfected by the city, so please be cautious and use at your own risk.
 

 

 


 


Are you interested  in knowing the breakdown of the water improvement project? Please view and/or download the Scope of Work which specifically outlines exactly what items are included in the project and the individual cost associated with each. (*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).
