IS YOUR HOME READY TO SURVIVE A WILDFIRE?

NORTHBOUND I-15 LANE SPLIT
Northbound traffic will be split by a concrete barrier between 2100 North and S.R. 92 beginning, Sunday, August 5 through late 2018. Drivers must be in the two right lanes to exit at S.R. 92 (Timpanogos Highway) This is being done for crews to build the new Triumph Blvd. bridge scheduled to open by the end of 2018. To see a map of the split, click HERE.
PRESSURIZED IRRIGATION ISSUES
Updated information on the pressurized irrigation issue: There is still little water for the upper pressure zone of the system. This is partially due to our highest producing well being out of service. The new motor has a tentative ship date of July 16th, so we anticipate the motor arriving later that week. The other source issue is the flows in Dry Creek and Fort Creek are lower than we have ever seen them. These issues, together with the hot/dry conditions and high demand on the system, have put us in the position we are in. This situation has never happened here in Alpine since the system was built. We are looking at every option to supply some water to everyone. We have asked everyone to cut back to at least 80% of their normal use. It is nearly impossible to for the City to gauge compliance with this request, so we are asking for everyone’s honesty and help. Without this compliance, residents could see further restrictions to allow everyone to have use of some irrigation water. Please bear with us during this frustrating and difficult time. Updates will be posted as they are available.
Due to the extreme demand on the City’s pressurized irrigation system, we have found it necessary to make temporary adjustments to the allowed watering schedule. Effective immediately, all customers will be required to reduce their water budget to 80% of their current run time. Most sprinkler timers have an option where this can easily be done. It is the same setting that is used for seasonal adjustments. Compliance with this change will help avoid further restrictions. We anticipate that with conservation from all users and getting a well back in operation next week, that residents will be able to return to the regular schedule. Thanks for your cooperation with this issue.

CREEKSIDE SPLASH PAD TO OPEN ON MEMORIAL DAY!!!
10 A.M. - 8 P.M. (Push Red Button to Start)
Lambert Park Closed to Motorized Vehicles
On April 24, 2018, the Alpine City Council voted to impose long-term restrictions on motorized vehicles in Lambert Park, except for maintenance and emergency vehicles. The improved roads to the Bowery and the rodeo grounds will remain open.
This closure will be strictly enforced by the Lone Peak Police Department. Violation of this policy is a class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $500, as per Section 11-400 of the Alpine City Municipal Code. No shooting is allowed in Lambert Park or within the Alpine City limits.
Text to 911
We are pleased to announce residents anywhere in Utah County can text “911” on their cell phones and connect with a 911 dispatcher.
Speaking directly to a 911 dispatcher is always the best and fastest way to get help in an emergency or to report a crime in progress. If you can call 911 for help, please do, but for those times when you can’t call, there is now “Text to 911.”
Texting 911 enables citizens to communicate with emergency dispatchers if they are unable to call 911. Cases of abuse, burglary and robbery have been successfully reported across the country by callers who have been able to text 911 without tipping off a suspect. We are happy to be able to offer this life saving service to our citizens.
This announcement covers all cities and all the unincorporated areas in Utah County. As the public safety professionals in Utah County, we are always working to improve our ability to respond to emergencies to help keep you safe.

2017 WATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Alpine City will continue to implement a water management plan for 2017.

- First Offense: Warning.
- Second Offense: $50 fine, payment required to have PI valve unlocked.
- Third and Future Offenses: $200 fine, payment required to have PI valve unlocked.

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.
