City of IonaSmall Town With A Big Heart

Looking for agenda, minutes, city code? Check out our new electronic document system!

We are excited to introduce to you the City’s new Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS) which is designed to store a wide range of electronic documents and file types. It offers the ability to save documents in a location that is secure, searchable, easy to use, and can manage the lifecycle of a document automatically (retention). 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. Currently, the public can find city code, all documents related to city council meetings, and ordinances/resolutions. We are in the beginning stages of this project, but hope to add more in the future. To look for a record please click on the Laserfiche logo which will allow you to browse or search for a document.

“Welcome Council Member Wadsworth” – Our new City Council Member, Peter Wadsworth, was appointed and sworn in by Mayor Gubler on November 20, 2018.


“I have lived in Iona for almost two years now. Previously I lived in Idaho Falls, near Ucon and prior to that I lived in St. Anthony, another lovely southeast Idaho small town. I enjoy living in a small town with a big heart. I have lived in different areas of the country including Bradenton, Florida and Palmyra, New York. I graduated from high school in Palmyra. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Utah State in 1999 and have lived in southeast Idaho since then. I come from a family of four children and my dear parents retired to Utah when I was attending Utah State. I have six children, my oldest is 27 and my youngest is 16. I claim all six as mine but I married my wife in 2005 and she had two children. Since then, we have raised all six. I have some experience working with a board, as I served on the Fremont County School Board prior to moving to Idaho Falls in 2004. I am very excited to again serve as a Council Member in a growing community. As we grow together we want to make sure that we do not lose the small town feel that the wonderful City of Iona provides.”

It will be beneficial to our officers to have an official complaint filed, before proceeding with Code Enforcement. 

Public Works 

“Driveway Markers” – Please be advised that metal driveway markers are not allowed within City limits as they may cause damage to City and personal vehicles and equipment. Fiberglass driveway markers are acceptable and preferred.

“Snow Removal” – We are determined to provide outstanding snow removal to keep the roads safe during the winter season. This can only be achieved through a partnership between RESIDENTS and the CITY.

Residents need to remove all vehicles, trailers and boats from the streets. Ridges of snow around vehicles parked on streets will freeze and can prevent or slow down future snow removal. In anticipation of any precipitation event, please remove all vehicles from the street. Any vehicle in violation may be removed by or under the direction of the City’s Police Department and may be impounded.

Iona City Code Title 6, Chapter 4, Section 8B reminds all owners, renters, and persons in charge of real property are to remove all snow and ice from sidewalks within 24 hours after any precipitation event. It is unlawful to place snow or ice removed from private property upon any public sidewalk, street, easement, right-of-way, or other public way, or alleyway. The following persons shall be exempt: (1) a person who is physically or mentally impaired in such a manner that they are unable, (2) a pregnant person, (3) a person who is eighty (80) or more years of age, and a lessee who occupies a multi-family dwelling unit owned by another person or entity and who is not an agent of the owner or a lessee having a legal and/or contractual duty to remove hail, snow, sleet, and/or ice from the sidewalk.


Your efforts will help our City employees be more efficient during snow removal and make this a safe winter season!
