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


The Ketchum and Sun Valley Fire Departments will be participating in the Blaine County Fire Expo, an annual community event featuring local firefighters, on June 19. The firefighters will share their expertise, skills and talents in vivid, real-life demonstrations, including car extrication, rescue drills, live fire, helicopters, fire safety for kids, home safety, engine tours and more. Free smoke detectors will be distributed at the event by local Girl Scouts and the American Red Cross. Returning events are the Firefighter Skill Drill featuring an array of on-the-ground firefighting rescue techniques and the Junior Firefighter Obstacle Course with prizes, hoses and fun for everyone.


Meridian welcomed the opening of a one-of-a-kind hub for education, recreation, wellness and literacy known as The Hill.  The Hill is the result of collaboration between five partner organizations: the Treasure Valley Family YMCA, St. Luke’s Health System, the City of Meridian, West Ada School District and the Meridian Library District.  The project includes a 60,000 square foot YMCA, an attached elementary school, incorporated health clinics, an adjacent city park, and an innovative “tiny library” planned for the fall.   All facilities are integrated with one another as a way to share space, resources and costs in this collaboration.


The month of May kicked off a growing community improvement project in the City of New Meadows. Volunteers gathered together on the weekend of May 19 and 20 to assist and support a local resident with property improvements as well as road-side clean up in and around the city. Three loads of debris were taken to the transfer station, five miles of highway were patrolled for litter and over 42-man hours were devoted to the betterment of the community. This will be an ongoing project, and another undertaking will take place in June.


Jared Barlow has been appointed as the new Mayor of the City of Oxford, replacing Alan Hatch who retired.


Bill Stewart is the new City Clerk/Treasurer for the City of Oxford.


The City of St. Anthony was named a Tree City USA for the 15th year in a row. Five trees were planted inn Harry Worrell Memorial Park for Arbor Day in April with the help of First Graders from Henry’s Fork Elementary.
