Check out noteworthy things done and honors received by cities around Idaho as they work to create quality cities.

 

The City of Blackfoot recently established a new policy allowing permits to be let for the decoration and lighting of city street trees. The purpose of the permit is to ensure that the lighting in the commercial district is installed and maintained in a manner that protects public safety and the health of trees.

 

The City of Hayden recently received the prestigious 2018 Legacy of Leaves Award. The award recognizes the contribution that trees make to the communities in which they are planted.

 

The City of Idaho Falls recently released a series of eight new economic development videos, which highlight the Idaho Falls community to those looking to relocate there. For each video, key industry sectors provide in-depth tours of the community. Key sectors include education; healthcare; development; federal contracting; business success; real estate; and culture, recreation and entertainment.

 

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality awarded a $3.9 million low-interest drinking water construction loan to the City of Iona. The funds will be used to install a new generator and transmission lines and construct a new storage tank and well.

 

In May the Pocatello Police Department’s K-9 team will host the Idaho Police Canine Association’s annual conference. More than 50 K-9 teams from throughout the state will converge in Pocatello May 7 to May 11 to attend the event, which features practical training and classroom courses to help officers and canines improve their skills. The conference will wrap up with a trials competition, testing the dogs’ abilities in agility, suspect apprehension, and odor detection.

 

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality awarded a $3.7 million low-interest drinking water construction loan to the City of Sugar City. The funds will be used to add a new well, booster pump, generator, storage tank, distribution piping, and radio read system for water meters.
