The PDF below is a copy of the power point presentation given by Camanche FIre Chief Dave Schutte. This is the 2019 year in review for the CFD.
Recently, a complaint was filed concerning the water quality of the Cmaanche water supply system with the DNR. Testing was accomplished by the DNR in concerns to the report. The findings from the DNR are contained in the letter below. If you have concerns about your water, the best thing to do is to contact public works. In order for them to help, they will need your location. Generalizing an area is not enough for them to try and pinpoint what might be going on in your specific location. The number for the public works director is 563-259-9410.
The 2020 Census is hiring for positions next year. Please see the flyer below and contact them if you are interested.
Camanche City Council recently amended the ordinances governing Snowmobiles, ATVs, UTVs, and Golf Carts. The only City permit required for these vehicles pertains to Golf Carts. Snowmobiles, ATVs and UTVs must have their DNR permit and meet state requirements. NOTE: ATVs are only allowed for the purpose of snow removal. There are also some route restrictions for other vehicles which are detailed in the ordinances provided for you below. If you have any questions, please contact the Camanche PD for guidance. Also below you can find the permit application for Golf Carts.
The City of Camanche experienced damages to infrastructure due to the flood of 2019. The document below is a report containing data, images, invoices and estimates for work to be done as well as potential mitigation. This information was originally compiled for FEMA to justify Clinton County being named a federal disaster area. That announcement came June 11, 2019. Now that we have been declared a disaster area, we are able to apply for funding to recover from the disaster. Again, this is for damage to public infrastructure only. This document may be amended as we move forward.
Staff has been hard at work in conjunction with FEMA to catalog and account for all damages to City property resulting from the flood. The CIty had it's initial kick off meeting with FEMA on August 8, 2019 to start the official process. Things are going quite well in that aspect and you can see some of the less than urgent repairs beginning. Our goal is to restore and improve everything that we can with the hope that there might be mitigation funding for some of the projects. The bike path is underway. Expect to see the 5th Ave boat ramp addressed shortly. We will be putting the 21" sewer line repair out for bid shortly which will impact traffic on Washington Boulevard at the south end. We will also be clearing debris from the library dock and inspecting the dock for any structural damage. The boat ramp parking lot should be addressed in the Fall. Park Drive will probably happen at the same time. We are also hopeful to get some mitigation consideration for lining sanitary sewer lines between 3rd St and the river to prevent future collapses. You are now up to date with the news of the flood saga. We have taken a slow approach to make sure that we do not make any mistakes in processes so that we qualify for as much disaster funding as possible. So far, we are ahead of the process according to our FEMA reps. Your City staff has done an outstanding job in organizing the process to get as much aid as possible and limiting city financial losses from the flood.
Camanche City Council recently adopted a 2 year street plan for road work. The plan is provided below in a PDF. We will soon be working on a 3-5 year plan.
