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.

 

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.

 

To begin your project: Schedule a meeting with Mike at the Public Works Office 801-614-0870

 

 

1. 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).

 

2. Build a model demonstrating the danger of cross connecting pipes between the drinking water system and the secondary (irrigation) system. All of the residence in the City has two water systems available for use. One is the culinary system which is primarily for indoor use the other is the pressure irrigation system which is used for outdoor watering. A connection between these systems can cause possible contamination of the drinking water. A model demonstrating this could be used to educated our residence of the dangers of a cross connection.

 

3. Place markers over Storm Drain Catch Basins. Catch Basins are inlet boxes on the Storm Drain System that collect the water that runs off the street or yards during a storm. This water goes downstream to Howard Slough and eventually to the Great Salt Lake where many different types of Birds and other wildlife live. The markers are placed over the Catch Basins as a reminder to everyone to be careful and not pollute the Storm Drain Waters.

 

4. Build a model demonstrating yard water conservation. Water is a precious resource and we need to learn to conserve it. A possible project would be to build a model of a yard that is landscaped with native plants and other materials that would use a minimal amount of water and still be acceptable under current city landscaping ordinances. This model could be displayed at the City Administration Office or the Public Works Office.

 

5. Landscape work in Parks. 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.

 

6. Align Cemetery Headstones. Over time, many of the heavy headstones will settle into the ground and set crooked. Straightening the stones requires care and hard work with shovels and levers. Many people visit the Cemetery and it is important to keep it looking nice. A member of the Public Works crew is always assigned to help oversee work on the Headstones.

 

7. 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.

 

8. Place mulch along our Trails. A supply of mulch will be placed along the Trail side for your group to place on the shoulders of the trail. A thick layer of mulch helps control weed growth and keeps dust down.   

 

9. Trimming flowers in the Hanging Baskets. The City has over 200 hanging flower baskets mainly in the central business area. Removing the dead vines from the baskets helps keep them looking good. This project is available during the summer and fall months of each year.

 

10. Painting curbs Red in front of Fire Hydrants. The Public Works Department will furnish the paint and other necessary supplies for your group to paint a 30’ section of the curb red for no parking in front of Fire Hydrants. This project can be done any time the temperature is at least 60 degrees and rising.

 

11. Remove weeds at the City Water Tank. The City has a Drinking Water Tank that is covered with landscape plants. A project is available to remove the weeds in between the plants and add new mulch. The mulch will be furnished by the Public Works Department.

 

12. Plant flower beds at the City, Police and Fire Buildings. 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. This project will not be available again until the spring of 2011.

 

13. Help with improvements to the Fishing Pond. This project has been waiting for along time for a willing participant to come along that has the necessary skills to improve the inlet channel to the City Fishing Pond by lining it with rock and mortar. The Public Works Department will supply the necessary materials to accomplish this project.

 

14. Luminaries at the Cemetery. Once a year during the Christmas season a paper bag with a candle inside is placed on each grave site. This project consists of weighting the bags with sand, installing a lighted candle and placing one on each grave. Clean up of the bags the following day is also needed.

 

15. Civic Center. Pick up trash, rocks from ball fields and weed beds.

 

16. Recycle Bins. To clean up any material left outside the bins on a weekly basis for a period of 1 month.
