The Swiss Days theme for 2017 is “Hometown Heroes.” This year we will be honoring many of our community’s heroes with special displays set up in the Town Hall Banquet Room. We will have several tables set up to honor veterans, which will be separated into conflicts/wars that our veterans have served in. We will also have tables honoring police, firefighters, medical responders, and other local heroes.
We are asking for your help in creating these displays! We want to honor the heroes in YOUR family! We encourage you to look for a few photos or mementos of your family’s heroes and bring them for display. The displays will be set up Wednesday, Sept. 20th. Please contact us if you would like to participate as we would like to get an approximation of how many displays we will need room for. Please contact Brooke at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the City Offices for more information 435-673-6712.
With summer in full swing keep in mind that lawn clippings, yard debris, chemical fertilizers, and pesticides can significantly add to polluting our storm water system. Follow manufactures guidelines for application of chemicals and sweep up excess clip-pings and debris to prevent them from going down the drain. Keep it green and keep it clean. We can all make a difference.
To report spills, dumping emergencies, violations or suspicious activities please call (435) 673-6712 the main City phone number and after hours number, or the DCSWC Hotline at (435) 634-5730 so an investigator can respond and visit the problem site.
