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, better water pressure for you as a customer, and a healthier lawn. It is better for your lawn to water every 2-3 days, than to water every day.

“2018 Consumer Confidence Report” – We are pleased to present this year’s Annual Water Quality Report (Consumer Confidence Report) as required by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) which can be found under the “Public Works Department” tab above, or by requesting a copy from the City Office. This report is designed to provide details about where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to standards set  by regulatory agencies. This report is a snapshot of our water quality for 2018. We are committed to providing you with information because informed customers are our best allies!

(*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).
