Utility Service Agreement
Welcome to the City of Sugar City.
We are pleased to have you join our community. We know that when one is new to an area there can be many questions.
Garbage: Collected on Fridays. Please have your can out on the curb by 7 a.m. and allow at least 3 feet between the can and any other object, including other cans. When there is a major holiday during the week (six major holidays), garbage pickup will be on Saturday.
Two citywide clean-ups: Once in May and once in October, residents can place yard waste, appliances, and other items that are no longer needed out to be picked up. Everything is accepted except tires, oil, batteries, cement, paint, chemicals, and large remodel projects. Refuse can be put in the alleys (if you have one) within the two weeks before each clean-up.
Building permits: Building permits are required for new homes, additions to existing homes, fences, sheds, etc.
Snow removal: Between December 1 and March 1, there are to be no vehicles parked on any street or alley between 12 a.m. (midnight) and 7 a.m.
Dog licenses: Dog licenses are required for every dog within the city. These are $15/ year and are to be renewed annually. If you have more than two dogs (even puppies), you will be required to get a kennel license from the city.
Parks: Parks are open on a first come, first served basis for casual use if they are not already reserved. Porta-potties are placed in the parks during the summer months. Adult supervision of children would be appreciated to maintain them. Should you wish to reserve a park, please call or come into City Hall to schedule. The rates are: $0 Small City resident groups, $25 Large City resident groups. A $50 refundable cleaning deposit is required.
City Events: The city has an annual Pioneer Day Breakfast the Saturday closest to July 24th, a Sugar Days Celebration in August, a Christmas Tree Lighting and Celebration first Monday in December at Heritage Park, and an Easter Egg Hunt the Saturday before Easter. There are also a wide variety of sports and recreational activities offered throughout the year. The monthly newsletter in your utility bill will inform you of any upcoming activities and special announcements. Be sure to read it so that you will be informed about what is going on in the city
City Council meetings: City council meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. Residents are always welcome.
City Hall is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Feel free to call us at 356-7561 if we can assist you.
