HOLIDAY CLOSURES: City Hall will be closed
February 20th for President’s Day. Garbage pick-up
will be on the normal schedule for the week.
L.I.D. PAYMENTS DUE: Payments are due February 21st.
This is for the 2002 Local Improvement District (L.I.D.) improvements for street, sidewalk and gutters assessed to then current homeowners.
SPRINKLER SYSTEMS: Backflow preventers are required on all sprinkler systems. If you didn’t have a test on your sprinkler system backflow preventer done last year, please have one done this year and return your report to City Hall or email it to email@example.com. This is necessary to ensure that contamination of the water supply will not happen in the event of a pressure loss to the water system. Odd numbered addresses are to be tested this year and even numbered addresses are to be tested in even numbered years. If you have an even numbered address and did not test last year, need to be tested this year also. Businesses are required to test every year. The deadline to have these completed is July 1st to avoid water services from being terminated. Thank you for your cooperation!
BUSINESS LICENSE REMINDER: Business licenses expired December 31st. Commercial licenses are $20.00. Home businesses are $10.00. You may send in a check to pay for your license and a new license will be mailed to you. (Do not combine with utility payment; it must be a separate check.)
KENNEL LICENSE RENEWALS: Kennel licenses expired December 31st. Come into city hall to pay for your renewal, which is $10.00.
DOG LICENSE REMINDER: Make sure your pets are licensed with a Sugar City tag. Dog tags are available at city hall. The cost is $15 per pet for their lifetime. Not having your dog licensed violates city code and has a fine of $150.00. There is a two dog limit per household. Please include a photo of your pet to keep on file.
SNOW REMOVAL: Keep cars uncovered from snow and parked back off roads to eliminate being clipped by the snowplows. DO NOT BLOW, PUSH OR SHOVEL SNOW INTO ROADS. According to City Code 4-5-2 B it constitutes a Misdemeanor.
OVERNIGHT PARKING: Reminder of our snow ordinance, City Code 6-1-2 A.1, no parking on city streets from December 1st through March 1st, between the hours of 12 midnight and 7 a.m. Failure to comply constitutes an infraction.
