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


The Meridian Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council hosted their 8th annual Ignite Youth event. Ignite Youth is an idea and presentation competition in which high school aged students have the opportunity to share their passions, concerns, and ideas with an audience of their peers, as well as community members of all ages in five minutes using 20 PowerPoint slides which are set to automatically advance to convey their message.


The opening reception for the Third Street Gallery, located on the second and third floors of Moscow City Hall, exhibit titled “A Palouse Horse; Celebrating 80 Years of the Appaloosa Horse Club” was held on March 9, with music by The Panhandle Cowboys. The reception was free and open to the public. The exhibit features items curated from the collections of the Appaloosa Horse Museum and Heritage Center and the Appaloosa Horse Club and runs through April 24.


The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality awarded a $2.7 million low-interest drinking water construction loan to the City of Mountain Home. The funds will be used to construct a new two-million-gallon storage tank and overflow pond near an existing tank.


Recently, the Pocatello Fire Department received a $1,000 donation from Albertsons, and firefighters made the decision to inject the money back into the community by teaming up with Southeastern Idaho Public Health (SIPH) to provide free flu shots to the public at a flu shot clinic on February 22. SIPH continued to provide shots that day at no charge after the department’s $1,000 was exhausted.


The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality awarded a $1.5 million low-interest wastewater construction loan to the City of White Bird. The funds will be used to make improvements to the treatment system, including influent pump station rehabilitation; influent flow monitoring and screening; Lagoon No. 1 and 2 lining, diffuser, and blower installation; Lagoon No. 3 abandonment and sludge disposal; filter media replacement; disinfection system improvements; and backup generator installation.
