July 2024 Newsletter

What’s up with the Splash Pad?! We don’t know. Our men have been on the telephone constantly with the supplier. They have done everything they have been advised to do. A representative of the company finally came to check it out, and we think (and hope) the problem is solved.

By now, most of you know that our Pickleball Courts were damaged by people walking or playing on them with cleats. I’m sure young people have no idea how much these courts cost. The paint alone is a special paint specifically for Pickleball courts. We are asking parents to please talk to your children about respecting city property – your property. Taxpayer money is used to repair or replace the items vandalized or accidentally damaged. Cameras will soon be installed at the Pickleball Courts, and those who damage the courts, or any other city property, will be responsible for the damages.

We have been informed that residents in the city are using a lot of Deep Creek water – over 400 gallons a minute. Please conserve the use of your Deep Creek water and check to see if you have any leaks in your system. The city is on a meter; and as soon as we have used our allotted shares, Deep Creek water will be turned off for city users. Because homes are not on individual meters for Deep Creek, we hope that everyone will curtail their use and only use what you need. We have our two hottest months coming up!

Please come enjoy July 4 with us! July 3 will feature the Kid’s Parade, a band – Rush’n Joe, announcement of Malad City Volunteer of the Year, and semi-finals for Malad’s Got Talent.
