Idaho Falls Power is converting City of Idaho Falls street lights to LED to help cut energy use and costs.
Nearly 30 Meridian neighborhoods participated in National Night Out this year. The city’s elected officials took part in the event.
The City of Meridian will hold a “leash” cutting on August 12 for Storey Bark Park, the city’s first dedicated off-leash dog park. In addition to the leash cutting, the event will include information booths and displays, live music, dog-themed door prizes, and doggy goody bags. Dogs and their humans are invited.
Approximately $2,185 and several weapons were awarded to the Twin Falls Police Department in July. All the money and weapons were seized during drug investigations.
The windows in the 1939 Twin Falls Library building have all been replaced, making the Library more energy efficient.
The Twin Falls Public Library Foundation received a grant to replace the library’s giant globe. The new one is brighter, more up to date with all the current political boundaries, and shows the town of Twin Falls (which had been rubbed off the old one by many fingers over the years).
