Reflecting with Mayor Reynolds - Eagle Field of Honor
    "Each flag in the field has a story. The flag represents an individual whose story is unique to him or her regardless of the branch of service or the campaign served. From the veteran walking with a grandchild to a young soldier kneeling in remembrance of a recently lost comrade, the field has a sacred meaning. The impact of a flag bearing the name of soldier, sailor, pilot, or Marine makes it very personal, and it brings the human closer to those who hold the ribbon bearing their name."
    This month represents the sacrifice and heroics of all who have served. We thank you veterans for your service to our country.

The City of Eagle requires that all solicitor’s obtain a permit prior to engaging in door to door sales.  The permit process requires a permit fee, background checks on ALL individuals and a surety bond.  If approved, individuals will receive a City issued photo identification that lists their business name, the name of the individual, as well as the permit number and expiration date.  All residents are encouraged to ask solicitor’s to produce this ID.  If they cannot provide it, more than likely they have not gone through the City’s approval process. 

Keep in mind that even if a permit through the City has been obtained, it does not guarantee the quality of work or product.  As with all purchases, you should thoroughly investigate the business and ask for referrals.  For more information regarding solicitors, review the recent article produced by the Better Business Bureau of Southwest Idaho.   

Residents always have the right to ask people to leave their property.  If the individuals resist or if you feel threatened, contact City of Eagle Police and report the incident immediately.
All residents have the right to post a “No Soliciting” sign on their home or have their Homeowner Association added to the “No Soliciting” list that is maintained at City Hall.  For more information contact City Hall at 939-6813.

Hot Topics and City Meetings

Laguna Pointe Pathway

At the April 11, 2014 City Council Meeting, Council unanimously approved Resolution 14-10 which states that the construction and maintenance of a public pathway is necessary and essential. The construction of a public pathway cannot be performed without the acquisition of real property. The location of land sought provides the greatest public good and the least private injury.
Because this process is in litigation, the City has referred all questions to the City's legal counsel.

Town Hall Meetings

     June 23, 2014 

     September 22, 2014

Meetings will begin at 6:00pm and will take place in council chambers.

The Eagle City Council is pleased to invite all Eagle  residents  to attend the quarterly town hall meetings. Stop by  to visit with your elected officials.

The Mayor and  City Council welcome your input and look forward to answering any questions you may have.

Have a suggestion? We'd love to hear from you!

Like what's happening? Great, let us know!

Have a concern; well,  we want to hear those too!

We wish this to be an open discussion inspired by the interests of the people of our  wonderful community.

Out of courtesy for all who wish to speak, the City Council requests each speaker limit their presentation to three (3) minutes.  If time permits, and after all attendees who wish to address the City Council have done so, the City Council may invite rebuttals or engage in additional discussions with the attendees.

It is the wish of the City Council that each speaker be treated with the utmost respect, courtesy and afforded the right to speak without interruption.  The intent of our town hall meeting is to create a friendly community spirited forum where by the Eagle community may express their views openly and freely.

May we suggest this is a gathering of neighbors openly speaking with neighbors, and we hope everyone will feel welcome to participate.
