Check out noteworthy things done and honors received by cities around Idaho as they work to create quality cities.
Caldwell Police Department officers joined students at Van Buren Elementary School for National School Breakfast Week. The officers spent more than 45 minutes talking to kids about how important breakfast is and just hanging out with the kids.
The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality awarded an $800,095 low-interest wastewater construction loan to the City of Franklin. The funds will be used to purchase 110 acres of land for reuse, construct reuse and intermediate pump stations and a new lined lagoon, and install a conveyance line to the reuse site.
The City of Malad held its Arbor Day celebration on April 26. The celebration included a free workshop on tree care and the presentation of Malad as a Tree City USA.
The City of Meridian held its 11th Annual Spring Clean Meridian on April 23.
The City of Moscow held a ground breaking ceremony on April 13 for its Wisescape demonstration garden project. Wisescape will promote water-efficient landscaping and is expected to be completed in late May.
As part of its Earth Day celebrations, City of Moscow volunteers installed “Drains to Stream” placards near storm drain catch basins. The placards will help citizens identify connections to the storm sewer system. Storm sewers route water directly, with no treatment, to the creeks and rivers, making public awareness imperative in order to preserve water quality and protect aquatic life.
Preston community volunteers raised over $65,000 for a splash pad in Preston City Park, which will be completed during the summer.
