Time for renewals!
Eagle is HOME!
With the holidays behind us it is time to focus on the New Year. This is the time of the year we do taxes, but also have the enjoyment of outdoor winter sports. As the days get longer, and hopefully warmer, many people will start to enjoy wonderful winter sporting activities: alpine and cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating and with the abundance of snow this year it should a fun time. As far as taxes, they are always a burden but a requirement for all. 

The City will have two new employees: the new head of our IT department, and the new maintenance supervisor to manage our facilities, streets and lighting chores.

On a sad note, the Valley Times - a local newspaper for Eagle and other surroundings cities - has announced it has ceased publication. The Valley Times was one of our official public notice sources but as a reminder you can access the same information on our website, and the Idaho Statesman will now be the legal notice publisher for city notices. 

Snow removal has been a “hot topic” since just before Christmas. The City of Eagle does not own streets or highways. State and Federal highways are under the control of the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) and streets in Ada County under the Ada County Highway District’s (ACHD) jurisdiction. 

The City of Eagle removes snow from city owned public parking lots and sidewalks adjacent to city buildings in accordance with ACHD code. We also remove snow from parking lots and sidewalks in city parks. Local merchants are required to remove snow from the front of their businesses by ACHD regulations. For more information visit ACHD's website.

The City of Eagle recognizes the importance of volunteerism and is taking a moment to thank those who selflessly give of themselves to the community.
Volunteer of the Month
Guys Read program volunteers, represented by Jason Strid
The City of Eagle would like to recognize the volunteers of the Guys Read program at Eagle Elementary School of the Arts. Guys Read is an outreach program from the Eagle Public Library in which adult men share their love of reading with boys in the 4th and 5th grade. It has been shown that if young guys have not been hooked on reading by the 4th grade, they will not become life-long readers. 
Jason has been instrumental in implementing the program. He has worked with the principal, teachers, library staff and the young guys in making this program a success. He has provided invaluable feedback on what the boys want to read. Since the first session in the fall of 2015, this program has grown from just a few kids to nearly all the boys in the 4th and 5th grade classes in 2016. Thank you, Jason Strid, Patrick Calley and Marlon McCowan for the implementation of the Guys Read program!
