Water Notice - Friday April 13th:
Over the next few days the water chemistry will change as a new pump is being put in place in the Jordan Well. The water may be harder and may taste different but is safe to use and drink. We expect that the possible change could continue through Tuesday.
CTI has requested closure, again of SE 19TH Street eastbound from Hwy 141 to Gateway Drive on Thursday April 26th from 9am to 3pm. The contractor will be providing traffic control during this time. Westbound traffic on SE 19th should not be affected.
Help Prevent Crime - A reminder from the Polk County Sheriff's Deputies that as the weather warms, please be sure to lock your vehicles and close your garage doors at night. Installing motion detection lights will also deter crime. Report any suspicious activity to 515-286-3333 or 911.
