CLINTON CITY SERVICE PROJECTS LIST
The following is a list of service projects that may be available for groups or individuals.
Thank you for your interest and willingness to help.
1. Your own great Ideas are the best. Check around the neighborhood or anywhere inside the City boundaries looking for things that you could do to make a difference and improve our community in some way. Then present your ideas to the Public Works Director.
2. Paint Fire Hydrants. After a few years the paint on Fire Hydrants begins to wear thin and rust begins to cover the surface. A fresh coat of paint protects the hydrants and makes the neighborhood look a little better. This project can be done any time the temperature is warm enough, (60 degrees and rising).
3. Mulch around Park Trees. Each year new trees are planted in the City Parks. To protect the trees from damage by lawn mowers, mulch is placed around the base of the trees. This project consists of removing a ring of sod from around the trees and replacing it with mulch. This is a project that must be done when the weather is warm enough.
4. Organize a litter pickup. Help us keep the City Beautiful by cleaning litter from City Parks or one of the Trails or City Streets. The Public Works Department will furnish the bags and the safety equipment and you furnish the manpower.
5. Landscape work in Parks. Remove dead plants and freshen the flower beds with new soil and mulch, then replant. This project is available once a year in the spring. The Public Works Department will provide the necessary materials.
6. Place Storm Drain Markers. Markers on storm drain catch basins help make people aware of the danger to wildlife and the environment when pollutants are washed into the gutter. The markers and materials are provided by the City. Manpower and tools need to be provided by the volunteer group.
7. Repaint Bowery Posts and Beams. The Bowery posts and beams at both Veterans and Meadows Parks are in need of a new paint job. This project will require sanding and preparation before the painting is done. Materials will be provided by the City.
Once you have an idea of what you would like to do for a project, schedule a meeting with Mike at the Public Works Office 801-614-0870
City personnel will be able to assist you with information about the particular project that you have selected from the list below or for one that you have thought of yourself. In some instances when funding is available the City will provide you with materials such as paint or litter bags etc. Organization of the project (planning and preparation, man power and equipment), will depend on you and your group leaders. City personnel will not be present to work on the project with you. Please keep in mind that projects need to be completed fully not leaving “loose ends” for others to finish.
