TROY - Capital for a day
Idaho Governor Brad Little visited Troy on July 15, 2021, for his latest ‘Capital for a Day’ event.
Little was joined by State Treasurer Julie Ellsworth, State Controller Brandon Woolf, and Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra in addition to other state lawmakers, agency directors, congressional representatives, and regional support staff. The event was a great success and was attended by about 150 community members. Little spent the day talking to local residents and answering questions they had on a variety of topics from vaccines to wildfires, education grazing practices, and dams.
Water Transmission Line
Construction has been underway this summer to replace the approximately 2-mile long water transmission main. This waterline has been Troy's primary source of drinking water for over 80 years. This project was made possible by the passing of the water bond election on May 15, 2018, in addition to financing through USDA.
NEWSIES: THE MUSICAL
Thank you to the Troy Art's Council and the Troy Community theater for the phenomenal production of Disney's Newsies: The Musical. The cast in this high-energy performance was outstanding and full of great talent and charisma.
The LCLD Summer Reading Program (SRP) has wound down. Thank you to everyone who participated! It has been a lot of fun to hear about everyone’s SRP progress.
The SRP prize drawing will be held on August 4th and all prize winners will be contacted via email or phone. The weekly SRP to-go activities were fun to share with everyone. Patrons’ positive feedback about these activities has been greatly appreciated. The SRP STEM to-go activities were made possible by a grant from Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICfL) – thank you ICfL! Because SRP is finished, there will be no weekly to-go activities in August. The Friends of the Troy Community Library paid for our library’s Summer Reading prizes. Thank you, Friends! There is not much happening at the library in August but stay tuned for future programming coming to the library this fall.

CITY OF TROY | RESOLUTION 2021-02
A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF TROY, LATAH COUNTY, IDAHO, PROCLAIMING EMERGENCY RESTRICTIONS ON OUTDOOR WATER USE AND RESTRICTING THE SALE OF BULK WATER.
The Big Meadow Well, which is the City’s major producing Well, is temporarily out of service for necessary repairs due to a mechanical failure. The reservoirs from the City’s second and third Wells are low and are typically fed by the City’s Big Meadow Well. Since the Big Meadow Well is offline, the reservoirs from the second and third Wells are not being fed, resulting in a lower water supply, which can result in a lack of adequate water pressure, and could cause serious fire protection problems. Therefore, based upon the authority granted to the City by the City Council under Troy City Code 7-9-1, the Mayor deems it necessary to proclaim an emergency restriction until further notice on outdoor water use, and to suspend the commercial sale of bulk water, and to restrict the residential sale of bulk water.
Residents are restricted from all outdoor water usage, including outdoor water play, watering lawns, and washing cars, and should conserve normal water usage until further notice.
Bulk water sales for commercial purposes are hereby suspended until further notice.
The penalty for violating the emergency restriction on outdoor water usage will be a misdemeanor and punishable by a fine not to exceed $1,000.00 in accordance with Troy City Code Section 7-9-2.
This Resolution shall continue in full force and effect until such a time as the Well is restored and there is no further emergency to the City’s water supply.

FUN AUGUST FACT
In August 1762 the first-ever sandwich was created, at least with such a name. It was named after the Earl of Sandwich when he requested a dish involving meat between two pieces of bread. As the story goes, he requested it as he was in the middle of a gambling game and didn’t want to interrupt it.
