CRACK SEALING STREETS
The Public Works Department will be crack sealing city streets over the next few months. To be effective, it is necessary to blow debris from the street before the crack sealing process is started. At the end of each work day the crew will come back and clean the debris away from sidewalks and driveways. If you see Public Services doing sealing on your street please move your vehicles off the street to help expedite the crack sealing work. Thank you for your patience and courtesy during these street repairs.
DECEMBER PARKS DEPARTMENT UPDATE
The City has received several resident complaints concerning dog feces in the Cemetery. Dog owners have been releasing their dogs to roam in the Cemetery which is in violation of City Ordinance 12.24.170. The Ordinance specifically prohibits animals in the Cemetery unless they are in the confines of a vehicle. Please be respectful to the occupants and their families by refraining from bringing pets into our beautiful Cemetery. Santa Clara has many trails and parks that allow leashed pets. Volunteers: The City wishes to thank the 73 Dixie State University Biology student volunteers. Student planted trees along Santa Clara Drive and in the Cemetery. They helped make the Cemetery beautiful for Veterans Day by weeding and installing 50 cubic yards of bark mulch along the South Hillside. They also improved the Arboretum by painting benches and providing trail maintenance. Cam Esplin has earned his Eagle Scout by landscaping a park strip in the Santa Clara Cemetery along the North side next to the Church. As part of his project, he removed old landscape and installed water wise plants with new water saving ground cover. The new plants and ground cover will reduce future water requirements.
