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

 

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality awarded a $15,000 drinking water planning grant to the City of McCammon. The funds will be used to prepare a planning study and environmental review. The purpose of the project is to evaluate the water system’s deficiencies and identify necessary improvements. The remaining $15,000 of the $30,000 project will be funded by the City.

 

The City of Moscow, the Moscow Arts Commission, and the Latah County Library District are hosting free community workshops to prepare for the creation of the new public art at the Moscow Public Library. The workshop attendees will not leave with a finished work, but rather will be assisting with the creation of a public art piece that will be installed at the Moscow Public Library and unveiled in June 2018.

 

The City of Moscow in conjunction with Safe Routes to School held its annual “Polar Walk” on February 7 to support walking to school as a fun and healthy activity in all seasons. Approximately 2,000 students from nine Moscow schools, kindergarten through high school, participated along with over 250 parents, teachers and community leaders and more than 40 University of Idaho students and athletes.

 

The Pocatello Police Department is offering the innovative defensive driving course “Alive at 25” to young drivers age 15 to 24 at no charge. The course helps young drivers learn and adopt safe driving practices, take responsibility for personal behavior in various driving situations and be more aware of typical driving hazards.

 

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality awarded a $24.1 million low interest wastewater construction loan to the City of Post Falls. The funding will be used to install a tertiary membrane filtration system; add an oxidation ditch, clarifier, and biological nutrient removal selector; update the current ultraviolet system; and upgrade support facilities.
