I hope this letter finds you well as we head into the holiday season. I wanted to take a moment to address a few important matters in our community.


As most of you may have noticed, we recently transitioned to a new trash collection service provider, Sunshine Disposal. Over the past three weeks, they have been diligently working to familiarize themselves with our routes and other rural routes to provide the best service possible. Like any transition, there may be a few bumps along the way. I want to express my gratitude to Sunshine Disposal for being receptive to feedback and for their commitment to ensuring a smooth transition. Your patience during this process is greatly appreciated. 


With the arrival of winter, the Public Works department has been preparing our equipment for snow plowing. While we can't control the weather, we can certainly make sure we are ready for it. Please remember to be cautious on the roads during snow and ice, and follow any advisories and snow emergency alerts. 


If you reside within the city limits and own vehicles, trailers, campers, or cars that won't be in use during the winter months, we encourage you to obtain a FREE winter parking permit from City Hall. The designated overflow parking space at the back of the City Park is available for your convenience. This not only helps alleviate street congestion but also ensures that our plows can operate more efficiently.


Finally, I am thrilled to announce that our 3rd Annual Christmas Fest is scheduled for December 2nd at the City Park. This year's event promises to be a wonderful celebration for our community, and I look forward to joining you all in the festivities. Thank you for your continued support, patience, and active participation in making our city a great place to live. As always, your input and involvement are vital to our community's success.


I wish you all a safe and joyous holiday season and as always, I am proud to be your Mayor.

Mayor Steve Corr

LIBRARY NEWS

November is here; the season of thankfulness, family, friends, and food. We have some fun things planned at the Troy Community Library this month.


Author Rosalie Spielman will be reading from the third book of her Hometown Mystery series, Murder Comes Home on November 8th, from 6-8 pm at the Troy Library. Rosalie is originally from Troy, ID, and writes cozy mysteries. Her Hometown Mystery books are set in Moscow and the fictional small town of New Oslo (inspired by Troy). There will be free treats and books for sale at the event. Stop by the library and help us celebrate Rosalie’s new book.


Idaho Family Reading Week (FRW) is in November; Art is All Around Us is this year’s theme. The library will have a family storytime and art activity on November 15th, 4-5:30 pm. There will be free art-themed books for patrons to take home, books provided by the Idaho Commission for Libraries.


November’s STEAM to-go activity is Math Magic. Learn magic tricks with a deck of cards that work because of math. The to-go kits will be available starting November 15th. This activity is geared towards elementary-age kiddos. Supplies are limited, and to-go activities are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.


Storytime is every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at the library, except on holidays and when otherwise posted. Storytime is a great way to meet other parents and children in our community. There will be no storytime on November 23rd.     


If you have questions about anything happening at the library this month, please call Michelle Sturdy at 208-835-4311 or email troy@latahlibrary.org
