THERE IS CURRENTLY A POWER OUTAGE IN JEROME. The Council meeting scheduled for tonight will be rescheduled if the power is not restored by 7:10 p.m.


July 23, 2018 - The active monsoons have allowed us to step back the mandatory water restrictions to Level One. Effective immediately, the Town is operating under “Demand Reduction Strategy I – ‘Water Alert.’” Per the Town Code, this strategy mandates the following:

  • Water shall be conserved both inside and outside the home or business using best practices available to minimize waste.  No person shall waste water.
  • Outdoor water use shall not occur between the hours of 9 AM to 5 PM.
  • Vehicle washing shall only be undertaken with a bucket and hose with a shut off nozzle or other water saving devices such as a pressure washer.
  • Cooling of outdoor areas with water or misting devices is prohibited.
  • Restaurants shall serve water to customers upon request only and shall display table tents or other types of public notice to this effect.
  • Construction projects shall use only reclaimed water or effluent or supply their own water for on-site use and dust control.

The 2018 General Plan was approved by Council on June 12, subject to insertion of credits for artwork and photographs used.  Click here to view the approved copy (which does not yet include the credits). Final edition will be posted on this website as soon as the credits have been added.
