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


Community members of all ages joined the Mayors of Ammon, Idaho Falls, Iona, and Ucon for the 2017 Mayors’ Family Bike Ride on May 22. The event was held in partnership with the Bonneville Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMPO), Idaho Falls Community Pathways, Eastern Idaho Public Health, Idaho Mountain Trading, Dave’s Bike Shop, Bill’s Bike and Run, and Snake River Landing. Free refreshments were provided by Wackerli Subaru.


The Ketchum Police Department plans to give away children’s helmets at the Bike Safety Rodeo on May 27. They will also offer safety inspections and riding tips. Officers also carry children’s helmets in their patrol cars at all times. If they see a child without a helmet as they patrol, they stop and offer a free helmet and help with the fitting. Helmets can also be requested by families at the police station.


Ketchum Police Field Day on June 2 will provide approximately 250 children the chance to meet local police officers and see their vehicles and equipment.


The City of Ketchum was designated a Tree City USA Community for the 12th year in a row.


The City of Idaho Falls is hosting its Clean & Green Citywide Cleanup May 5 to 15. Paper-shredding services were also provided to the public by Western Records Destruction as part of the event.


The City of Pocatello and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game hosted a meeting with area citizens to talk about mule deer and their interaction with humans in and around the city.


The Pocatello Police Department received a $50,000 grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for seatbelt education and enforcement. The Department will be conducting several seatbelt enforcement periods during 2017 and 2018. The grant funds overtime for officers assisting during the enforcement periods as well as the purchase of a message board to help get the word out on the importance of seatbelts.


Pocatello’s Marshall Public Library recently added two Family History Kits to its collection to help those interested in diving into their family’s past. The assortment of tools in the kit includes games, writing prompts for memories, templates for recording family stories and more to assist amateur and professional genealogists in exploring their family trees.


The Post Falls Orgill project was one of 15 to receive the Trade & Industry Development’s 12th Annual Corporate Investment and Community Impact (CiCi) Awards. The 12th Annual CiCi Community Impact category celebrates projects that are making their communities a better place.
