CITIZEN PATROL VOLUNTEERS WANTED! The Perry City Police Department works hard to eliminate crime in the neighborhoods, business districts, and communities throughout the City. As a new tool to help in this effort, the Citizen Patrol Program was created to bring Perry citizens and the Police Department together for a common goal: to improve the quality of life by eliminating crime. The Citizen Patrol Program is designed to provide a means for citizens to organize into patrol groups for the purpose of reducing crime in our community. Citizen Patrollers are the additional eyes and ears that the police can count on to make Perry City a safer place to live and work. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Perry City Police Department’s volunteer Citizen Patrol program, please visit our office or our website for more details at

Perry City has passed a new code enforcement ordinance. This ordinance was passed to give Perry City the ability to enforce the ordinances without having to press criminal charges. One of the most pressing issues of concern to our residents, and that of our fire marshal due to the extreme dry weather, is the issue of weeds. Section 304.1.2 Vegetation: of the international fire code states: weeds, grass, vines or other growth that is capable of being ignited and endangering property, shall be cut down and removed by the owner or occupant of the premises. Perry City is encouraging all residents to please work towards maintaining their property in order to keep the risk of fire to a minimum.

Meet the Candidates Night will be held on Tuesday, October 17th from 6:30pm-8pm at the Three Mile Creek Elementary School (2625 S 1050 W). The General Election will take place November 7, 2017! Remember to get registered to vote!

The Wastewater Treatment Facility Board has requested the notices were sent out to residents NOT to dispose of needles by flushing them down the toilet. This creates a dangerous situation for the Wastewater.

Three Mile Creek Elementary is starting their fundraiser this month. Buy a card from Little Caesars and receive 10 bread sticks orders for the $10.00 donation.  

Congratulations to our spectacular September EXPLORERS OF THE MONTH! These students will get their picture in the Box Elder News Journal, our school "Hall of Fame", and get a special treat from Principal Nelson at the end of the month
