Notice of Public Hearing for Integrated Resource Plan 07/16/2019

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

A Public Hearing on the City of Valley City Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) for the Valley City Public Works is scheduled for July 16 at 5:00pm at City Hall.

The City of Valley City has prepared an IRP as required by Western Area Power Administration (Western) under its Energy Planning and Management rules. An IRP must be completed by the City of Valley City to renew its long-term power supply agreement with Western.

An IRP involves planning for future energy resources by evaluating a full range of alternatives, including traditional energy sources, power purchases, energy conservation and efficiency, and renewable resources, in order to provide adequate and reliable service to consumers at the lowest system cost. An IRP should support municipal utility goals and schedules.

The IRP Summary Report can be viewed at City Hall during business hours. In addition to commenting on the IRP at the Public Hearing, written comments can be submitted to the City of Valley City during business hours before the Public Hearing.

Public Works Accountant

Fireworks Safety

Millions of Americans will enjoy 4th of July celebrations. There are many public displays while many will be using consumer fireworks. Use this holiday celebration for your enjoyment.

The sale in North Dakota is from June 27 to July 5th.  Fireworks may be detonated July 1 – July 5 from 8am to 11pm (On July 4, fireworks may be detonated until July 5 at 1:00 AM).

You must be 12 years of age to purchase fireworks in North Dakota.

Bottle rockets are illegal to buy and sell in North Dakota.

Thousands of injuries occur from fireworks each year, mostly from carelessness.  Do not become complacent during your time of entertainment.    Things can go bad in a hurry.  This can be the best of times and this can be the worst of times.  Supervision is critical.

Adults must take this responsibility seriously. Be strict on the proper use of fireworks.

A few general reminders:

  • Alcohol and fireworks are a very dangerous combination.
  • Choose an open space to set off the fireworks.
  • Use a flat, heavy board on level ground with bricks to hold your aerial devices steady.
  • Keep spectators at a safe distance:  40 ft for aerial fireworks.
  • Have a bucket of water and a garden hose close by.
  • Have eye protection for those setting off the displays.
  • Wear clothing that will protect your skin.
  • Use a barbecue lighter or a punk to light your fireworks.
  • Do not try to light dud fireworks that did not go off.
  • Do not alter fireworks, and do not detonate using cans or glass bottles.
  • Put all used fireworks in a garbage can and wet down with the water hose.
  • Do not put the garbage can in the garage for the night.

Your enjoyment for the 4th can be a good one as long as you use good safety practices.  There are many who wished they did because they are living with some very ugly scars.     PLEASE USE YOUR FIREWORKS SAFELY.
