Winter Parking Ordinance
The Winter Parking Ordinance went into effect on Tuesday, November 1st.  Please do not park anything on the streets from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. to accommodate snow plows.  This ordinance is enforced whether or not it is snowing.

When the ordinance is not in effect, please do not park anything along the street once snow starts accumulating, so the snow plow drivers can clear the street more quickly and thoroughly.  This will help with less incidents of damaged parked vehicles, etc.

Additional information regarding snow removal is available here.

Recycling Program
In November 2016, the Salem City Council approved an opt-out curbside recycling program. 
Flyers will be mailed to each resident sometime during the middle of December 2016 with additional information regarding the program, the pricing, what can be recycled, and how to opt out of this service.

The City is very excited to finally be able to offer curbside recycling for it’s residents, but if we do not have at least 50% - 60% of our residents participate, it will not be cost effective and we may not be able to provide this service.

Additional information is available on the Recycling Program webpage.

Leaves/Storm Drains

We need your help in making sure the leaves are cleaned out of the gutters in front of your home.   If you also have a storm drain grate in front of your home, make sure it is clear of leaves and other debris.     With the leaves you may bag them up and take them to the Recreation Office/Veteran Ball Park parking lot (60 North 100 East).   The city will have a truck there so you can drop off your BAGGED leaves.   DO NOT drop off any other items, this is only for bagged leaves.

We need your help to make sure the gutters are clear.

Electric Rate Increase

During the 2016/2017 budget discussion in May and June 2016, the city was faced with the decision to increase power rates.   During this time, Salem City Power was going through a rate study through UMPA (Utah Municipal Power Association).   The council decided to hold off on the rate increase until the study was completed (June 2016) and they had time to review it.   During the August 24th City Council Meeting the Salem City Council approved a Power Rate Increase for all users.  This will go into effect with your August 2016 usage (the bill you will get the first part of October 2016).
