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.

With the expected doubling of Washington County’s population by 2035, the Five County AOG encourages all to contemplate the future of Washington County’s transportation networks as the community evolves over the next 25 years. If current trends continue, and there is no evidence to the contrary, Washington County will then be home to 371,000 people (2.5 times the current population) who will need to travel between work, home, shopping, and entertainment venues. This year, planners and community leaders will seek public input on projects along River Road, River Road Bridge, Washington Parkway, Washington Dam Road, Washington Main Street widening, Old Highway 91 in Santa Clara and Ivins, the extension of the Southern Parkway through Hurricane, State Route 9 through Hurricane, and many
other local projects. The 2019 Transportation Expo offers a unique opportunity for people to gain a first-hand understanding of a variety of transit projects, road projects, traffic light projects, and bike trail developments – and render informed comments on these projects that will help planners envision Dixie’s future. The 2019 Transportation Expo is an excellent venue to learn about local transportation trends and provide meaningful input that may shape the future of Washington County. The expo will be February 12, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Dixie Convention Center.

Because regulators and authorities cannot monitor all storm drains and water bodies at once, they rely on the public to keep them informed of water polluters. Community hotlines provide a means for concerned citizens and agencies to contact the appropriate authority when they see water quality problems. To report spills, dumping emergencies, violations or suspicious activities please call the DCSWC Hot Line at 435-634-5730 or (435)-673-6712, the main City phone number and after hours number. In most cases an investigator will visit and assess the problem site.
