PRESS RELEASE – 04/05/2016
The City of Boone, in partnership with Xenia Rural Water, is working with McClure Engineering Co. on a Source Water and Treatment Feasibility Study. The goal of the study is to identify methods to continue to provide safe drinking water during periods of high nitrate concentrations. This could be achieved through incorporating treatment processes to remove the nitrates, or by utilizing alternative water sources with lower nitrate concentrations. Results will be posted on City’s website when they are available.

12/11/2015 Sidewalk Snow Ordinance
Residents are encouraged to note a recent change in the side walk snow removal procedures.
The Boone City ordinance requires that property owners remove snow and ice accumulations from sidewalks within 24 hours in commercial districts and 48 hours in residential districts following a snow event. Owners are also
required to maintain sidewalks clear of snow and ice.
New procedures in 2014 now require the City to publish notice in the news paper informing residents of these requirements, but no additional notice will be given prior to the City performing work for properties that fail to
comply. The City will cause the work to be completed and the charges will be assessed to the property taxes as a special assessment.
The penalties for failure to comply with these requirements for the 2015 -2016 winter season
are thirty dollars ($ 30) for an interior lot, fifty dollars ($50) for a corner lot for snow removal, fifty dollar ($50) civil penalty, and a five ($5) dollar administrative fee.
Property owners are encouraged to keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice accumulation for the safety of the
users of our sidewalks. Questions may be directed to Community Service Officer Michael J. Salati Sr. at the Boone Police Department at 515-432-3456 during normal business hours Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.
