“2020 Census” – The U.S. Census Bureau will be conducting the 2020 Census beginning in March 2020. The data collected from the Census is used to update population records, which determines federal spending budgets for each state and community around the country. In 2016, Idaho received $3,646,592,592 through 55 federal spending programs guided  by data derived from the 2010 Census. This is a large sum of money; however, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that 35% of Idahoans were not counted due to non-response to the Census. Idaho missed out on millions of dollars in federal programs after the 2010 Census. Please encourage your friends and neighbors to participate and help our City and state of Idaho.

The U.S. Census Bureau is also hiring temporary employees for the 2020 Census. They offer flexible schedules, mileage reimbursement and a $13.50 hourly wage. More information can be found on their website at: 2020census.gov/jobs

“Trees Overhanging Public Property” – 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 take care of this as soon as possible, to avoid action and a bill from the City. Thank you.

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).
