    Dear Sugar City Residents:

    CITY UPDATES: Summer is winding down, but there are a lot of issues that the  City continues to be involved in. I thought the City residents would be interested  in being made aware of some of these issues. 

    • The bridge across the Teton River is nearing completion. 
    • The subdivision north of the Teton River, called River Bend Ranch, is in  the planning stage. 
    • The old Farm Estates subdivision south of town is moving forward with  its next stage of planning. 
    • The planning for a new well within the city is being worked on. We have negotiated contracts with three internet providers who pay the  City to have the use of our water tower. 
    • Updates and changes have been made to our City Comprehensive Plan. We’re working on a new twenty-year franchise agreement with Rocky  Mountain Power. 
    • The southwest part of the City is being included in an urban renewal  district in preparation for development. 
    • We are installing Scada metering devices on our water and sewer lines  where they will be helpful and where we can afford them. 
    • We have placed some playground equipment in the Mayor Park to help  with the overflow use of Heritage Park. 
    • The County Food Bank will be distributed in Sugar City in the coming  months. 
    • New security camera equipment has been installed. 
    • We continue to keep the streets in as good a condition as we can afford. We have applied for a grant to help install A.D.A. ramps on Center Street  intersections.
