Check out noteworthy things being done and honors received by people in Idaho cities around the state.

 

On May 15, 2018 the K27 Memorial was dedicated to Sgt. Greg Moore's memory. Honored guests included Coeur d’Alene Mayor Steve Widmyer and Lindy Moore. The dedication was observed by law enforcement officers and the public in a brief, but powerful presentation.

 

Monte McCully, Trails Coordinator for the City of Coeur d'Alene, recently earned his Executive Masters of Business Administration (EMBA) degree from the University of Idaho.  This two-year employer-sponsored program targets mid-level managers and uses an integrative approach and schedule designed to work with busy individuals and lifestyles. 

 

City of Idaho Falls Parks and Recreation Director Greg A. Weitzel has been named as a member of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) Board of Directors. His three-year term starts in September 2018.

 

The Pocatello City Council proclaimed June as Healthy Homes Month at a recent City Council Meeting. The proclamation was read by Council President Jim Johnston.

 

On June 19 from representatives from the City of Pocatello Lead Safe and Healthy Homes Program and Water Department will host a “Get the Lead Out” event. During the informal meeting, officials will discuss lead-based paint hazards, health problems attributed to lead exposure, and more. “Lead-based paint hazards may be found in homes built prior to 1978,” said Adam Lane, Community Development Block Grant Manager for the City. “We want to protect current and future generations of children from the harmful effects of lead exposure by raising awareness about the importance of healthy home assessments and the impact on overall health.” Recently, the City received a $1.5 million Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes. The City has used the funding to start up its Lead Safe and Healthy Homes (LSHH) effort. Through LSHH, the City will provide lead-based paint hazard control via licensed and certified contractors at no cost.
