The Public Works Department will be crack sealing city streets for 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 side-walks 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.

Sources of pollution to our storm water System include leaves, grass clippings, organic material, dirt and debris.
Residents need to be aware that it is against the City Storm Water Ordinance [Chapter 13:24] to sweep or blow leaves and grass clippings into the street, curb and gutter or sidewalk. Residents are also responsible to retain any dirt, top soil or rock etc. onto their property. The City is committed to protect our water quality. Your help is needed to help protect this valuable resource. Together we do make a difference. Please report violations to the DCSWC (Dixie Clean Storm Water Coalition Hot line at (435)634-5730) or the main City office at (435)656-4690.
Santa Clara City will hold the annual dog license/vaccination clinic on Saturday February 2, 2019. The clinic will be held at the Circle Drive Fire Station as in the past. Clinic hours will be 8:30am—12:00pm. License fees are $10-$22 depending on how many dogs you have and whether your pet is spayed or neutered. Vaccination fees are determined by the veterinarian administering the vaccines.
The city dog tag and rabies tag should be on a collar worn on your dog at all times. City ordinance requires your dogs to be licensed annually and current on their rabies vaccination. This is important for the health of your dog, as well as the people and other animals your dog interacts with. 2019 City Dog Tags are available at the Town Hall office now if you would like to license your pet before the clinic—just be sure to bring in your dogs current rabies vaccination certificate.
It’s the holidays, that most wonderful time of the year when 32 million families across the country get ready to tackle that favorite December pastime: decorating.
Lights and Decorations
*When shopping for lights, electrical decorations and extension cords, purchase only those that are UL-listed.
*If you’re planning to decorate outdoors, make sure that you use lights and decorations that are rated for outdoor use. Putting indoor-only products outside in the weather can result in electric shock and fire hazards.
*If you’re in doubt as to whether light strings are rated for indoor or outdoor use, check the color-coded UL mark on the product’s package. A green holo-graphic UL mark says, “indoors only, please,” while a red one indicates that the product is safe for both indoor and outdoor use.
*Whether they’re brand-new out of the box or used from holidays past, before you put them up, inspect all lights, electrical decorations and extension cords for signs of damage to wire insulation, plugs, and bulbs. If the dam-age can be repaired (i.e., broken bulbs replaced), do not use the item until the repair has been made. If cords and plugs are damaged, discard and replace the decoration.
*Always unplug lights before changing bulbs, replacing fuses, or making any other repairs.
Setting Up Your Christmas Tree
How you set up and care for your tree has a big effect on how long it will last, how beautiful it will stay, and, ultimately, how safe it will be to have in your home.
*Before putting your new Christmas tree into its stand, cut a couple of inches off the bottom of the trunk to expose fresher (and far more absorbent) wood. Taking a few minutes to do this will improve your tree’s water intake, and make it harder for your tree to catch fire.
*Your tree stand should have a capacity of at least one gallon, which is the amount of water that the average 6-foot Christmas tree can consume in a day’s time. As a general rule of thumb, live Christmas trees require one quart of water for every inch of trunk diameter.
*Water live Christmas trees daily.
*Position tree a minimum of 3 feet away from candles, fireplaces, space heat-ers, radiators, heat vents, and other heat sources.
*Because nearly half of all Christmas tree fires involve electrical malfunctions, it’s extremely important to check that light strands, and other electrical decorations are in good condition (free from insulation cracks, fraying wires or damaged bulbs and plugs) before decorating your tree with them.
