IMPORTANT SNOW REMOVAL INFORMATION

It wouldn’t be November without this being mentioned for you and your family’s welfare in mind.  Halloween has come and gone and it usually means that the “rumors” of snow are generally reality in the forecast.  Victor residents are cranking up their thermostats & adding thermal layers to keep warm while carrying on with our outdoor pursuits.  With that time drawing near, the City’s Public Works staff would like to pass on a few timely reminders that are brought to you in an effort to prevent collisions of snow removal equipment with other types of vehicles and reduce the possibility of accidents involving pedestrians.

The City shall remove snow from public streets.  The City shall not be required to remove snow from public alleys or private property.  It is unlawful for any person to park a motor vehicle or leave any other obstructions adjacent to or on a public street in such a manner as to interfere with snow removal by the City. 

Please Note the Special Seasonal Restrictions:  No person shall stand, stop or park a motor vehicle, trailer or other vehicle on any roadways or within existing public easements for such roadways, or in any designated alleyway within the city limits between the hours of 3:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. between November 15and April 1 of any year.  Note:  Long term parking is available at Pioneer Park for up to two weeks if you are planning to go out of town. 

Homeowners are encouraged to mark where your water meter is located. Private snow removal companies do not know where these meters are located andany cost due to subsequent damage that occurs is the homeowner’s responsibility.  Because of frost concerns, meters should not be uncovered or driven over in the winter. 

We thank you ahead of time for your cooperation with these items in order to keep Victor’s streets safe. 

SUBS FOR SANTA

Got a gift in the back of the closet you forgot about because you didn’t like the color?  The City of Victor is pleased to announce that it has volunteered to become a drop off station for any individuals wishing to contribute items for the Subs for Santa program run in Teton Valley by the tireless Gogie Reynolds.  She is being already swamped with requests.  Unwrapped toys, books, clothes, food, personal toiletries –ANYTHING you’d like to contribute will be appreciated.  We have a large box in the front of the office at City Hall that we, of course, would love to see overflowing.

This is the time of year when need is the greatest and helping others is the most rewarding - knowing that you put a smile on a child’s face is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.  We’d appreciate your consideration of this request.

HOLIDAYFESTIVAL

The annual Holiday Festival and Light Parade will be held on Saturday, December 3rd.  Plan on enjoying an exciting day full of family-oriented fun.  The Friends of the Library Book Sale, Live Nativity Scene, Turkey Bowling and the free Hot Potato Giveaway are just a few of the  highlights of our festival.  New to this year’s line-up is “Music and Mangers” – there are close to 100 different nativity scenes that will be displayed at Victor Elementary School during the hours of Noon until parade time (6:00 p.m.).  There will also be an assortment of different choirs that will be performing music for your enjoyment while you stroll thru the display. Look for flyers that will be hung around at local businesses or the ad running  before that weekend listing  the schedule for all these events!  Circle this date on your calendar – we’d love to see your family attend!

The always awesome light parade will begin at 6:00 p.m.   We encourage all local businesses to enter floats as well as service organizations. We’d love to see more twinkling of lights as the parade makes it way down Main Street and back.  Please contact Susan at City Hall to register for this short but sweet event!  Don’t forget about the fireworks display that will be set off immediately following the parade. 

The City is always looking for volunteer help with events of this size.  If you can spare an hour or two out to help, please call us and let us know!!  It will be greatly appreciated.
