We Need Your Help!

Was your House built between 1982 and 1988?

The City of Chubbuck recently sent out letters to residents whose homes were built between 1982 and 1988. Asking for their help in collecting a water sample from their inside tap to be tested for lead and copper in the water.

Their help in this matter is desperately needed in order to have our water system stay in compliance with the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). To maintain water system compliance it is necessary to complete collection and test by June 30, 2019

So if you received a letter or know of anyone who did, don’t pass it off as not important Please respond and help us out we cannot fulfill this requirement without your help.

On May 15 2019 the City of Chubbuck brought online a new water well (called a water source in regulator language). With the new source and the possibility of different PH and or chemistry mixing with our existing water sources and residential plumbing fixtures. The City is required to collect two sets of samples from 60 homes built between 1982 and 1988. One set now and the second set in the latter half of the year.

2020 Census

Bannock County Commissioners, and Mayors Pledge Support for 2020 Census.

The start of the 2020 Census is a little under a year out and local government officials are pledging their support for the 2020 Census Count.

Recently, members of the Bannock County Commission and the Mayors of Arimo, Downey, Inkom, Lava Hot Springs, McCamrnon, Chubbuck, and Pocatello signed a county-wide proclamation affirming their commitment to being “a committed partner with the US Census Bureau in achieving the goal of a full and accurate 2020 Census count for Bannock County.”

Ahead of the Census beginning on April 1, 2020, the Bannock County Complete Count Committee will be working to educate citizens about the Census and encouraging them to complete their Census forms. In April 2020, citizens will have the option of responding to the Census online, by mail, or by phone.

The primary purpose of the decennial Census is apportioning the U.S. House of Representatives. Additionally, the count determines how more than $670 billion in annual funding from the federal government is distributed. This translates to approximately $1,470 per Idahoan counted, according to the US Census Bureau. The funding received goes towards schools, transportation, job training centers, senior and foster care centers, as well as medical assistance programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, and more.
