With the start of the new fiscal year on July 1, 2021, citizens of Ontario will see one less fee on their utility bill. During budget discussions, the Budget Committee approved to remove the Public Safety fee. The fee was lowered from $5 last year and will be eliminated this year. Citizens will see the charge prorated in their August bill, after which, it will not be billed.
The Beck-Kiwanis Park tennis courts are being rehabilitated to offer more recreation opportunities for the public. In addition to tennis courts, the update will include a pickleball court. The city is grateful for the partnership with Four Rivers Community School to see this project happen! More updates to come.
Notice something different Downtown? The roped off hole at Moore Park is being prepared for the pouring of a concrete base which will sit as the foundation for a gazebo. The gazebo will serve as a beautiful meeting point, a spot for shade, and a performance area.
The city is grateful for the generous donation of the gazebo from the LeBoutillier family. The structure is currently being treated and will go up once the concrete foundation has been poured.
The city received a $67,298 grant from the Oregon Transportation Committee. The budget committee approved an additional $7,703 as a grant match. These funds will go toward the design engineering of the North-South Trail which will connect Lion's Park with the State Recreation Park on the north side of Ontario. Combined with the Treasure Valley Connector Trail, this will offer approximately 3 miles of multi-purpose trail.
