MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY
Alpine City invites all veterans, families of veterans and friends of veterans to attend the Alpine City Annual Memorial Day Ceremony at 0730 hours (7:30 am for non-veterans) on Memorial Day, 30 May, 2016 at the Alpine City Cemetery.
A military Honor Guard will conduct the raising of the flag, remembrance and honors of Alpine's deceased veterans will be conducted by the playing of "Taps" and we will honor Alpine's living veterans by playing a medley of the military service songs. A short and meaningful address will be given by a military member.
Memorial Day Ceremonies are authorized by the Department of Defense for veterans to wear their uniform so please come in uniform (for those that can still get into them). If not a uniform, please wear whatever veteran's attire or memorabilia that will help the city to recognize you as a veteran.
Light refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the ceremony.

Legal Notice 67770 Published in The Daily Herald march 8, 15, 2016.
Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations for the City of Alpine, Utah County, Utah, and Case No. 16-08-0236P. The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) solicits technical information or comments on proposed flood hazard determinations for the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), and where applicable, the Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report for your community. These flood hazard determinations may include the addition or modification of Base Flood Elevations, base flood depths, Special Flood Hazard Area boundaries or zone designations, or the regulatory floodway.
The FIRM and, if applicable, the FIS report have been revised to reflect these flood hazard determinations through issuance of a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR), in accordance with Title 44, Part 65 of the Code of Federal Regulations. These determinations are the basis for the floodplain management measures that your community is required to adopt or show evidence of having in effect to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program. For more information on the proposed flood hazard determinations and information on the statutory 90-day period provided for appeals, please visit FEMA’s website at www.fema.gov/plan/prevent/fhm/bfe, or call the FEMA Map Information eXchange (FMIX) toll free at 1-877-FEMA MAP (1-877-336-2627).
GREEN WASTE OR WOOD WASTE TEMPORARILY NOT ACCEPTED
The Timpanogas Special Service District will not be accepting green waste or wood waste beginning March 7, 2016. This is a temporary measure until further notice. The District has a construction project taking place at the facility and cannot take green waste during the construction. Green waste and wood waste can be disposed of at North Pointe Transfer Station at their current fee rate. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. The District will continue to sell compost Wednesday through Saturday as in the past. We will post any updates to our website as they occur. The District website is www.timpssd.org.
ALPINE CEMETERY UPDATE
On February 23, 2016 the Alpine City Council approved the following items as related to the Alpine Cemetery:
1.To place a moratorium on the sale of plots in the Alpine Cemetery. The only exception is if there is a death in the family of an Alpine resident. In that case the family will be allowed to purchase up to three (3) plots.
Alpine has a little over one hundred (100) plots left in the Cemetery. The City is averaging sales of between sixty (60) to seventy (70) plots a year, after taking into account plot buy backs. If this rate of sales continues the City will run out of Cemetery plots in a short while.
2.To enforce a strict interpretation on fees related to operations at the Cemetery. To get the Alpine City resident fee rate the person who has passed away must have been an actual resident of Alpine at the time of passing.
3.To initiate an aggressive buy back program of previously purchased plots. If you would like to sell back your plots or know of anyone who has plots that they do not need, please contact the City. The City will buy back your plots at $985.00 a plot.
4.To issue an RFP for a comprehensive design of the Cemetery, with a focus on the north end of the Cemetery. The City will shortly issue a request for proposals to engage a design firm to develop a comprehensive plan for the Cemetery. The City will focus its development efforts on the north side of the Cemetery. This will also include work on 600 North street.

ACCESSORY APARTMENTS 101
Purpose: The purpose of the Accessory Apartment Ordinance is twofold:
1. To allow homeowners to rent part of their homes to others safely and legally.
2. To keep illegal duplexes from covering the City and lowering the property values of everyone who lives in the City.
How does it work:
1. You fix up a part of your home to rent to someone (it helps to call the City first).
2. You call the City to register your apartment.
3. The City sends out a building inspector to make sure it is safe.
4. You pay $50 and you are off and running.
5. You pay your fee each year and continue to rent your space out.
How does it NOT work:
1. You can't rent out both the top and bottom of your home and then go live in American Fork. You have to live in your home to rent part of it out.
2. You can't just rent out part of your home out without registering with the City.
3. If you rent it and don't register it then you could be fined.
4. Worse, something bad happens while you are renting it out illegally and you get both fined and sued. Not a good idea, just register.
