Calendar Parking In Effect

A Calendar Parking Event has been issued beginning Friday January 17, 2020 and will continue through Monday morning January 20, 2020.  The requirement is to park on the even side of the street on even numbered days and the odd side of the street on the odd numbered days.  


If you are able to put your car in a driveway during this time, it really helps with getting the streets clean and clear.

Washington Blvd to be Closed

Washington Blvd will be closed beginning December 9 for the replacement of the 21" sewer line..  This line was submerged under water during the flood and the line collapsed.  The road is expected to be closed for 2 weeks.  The entire road section will be removed so there will be no getting around the barricades.  Please prepare for an alternate route over the two weeks.  The bike path will also be closed for safety purposes.  

There is an update memo below.  Please dowload the PDF to view the information

Camanche Flood Damage Report

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.  

Recycling Schedule

Below is a pdf of the recylcing schedule.  The recycling collection will happen on the same day as your trash collection.  Please have the containers placed as noted in the document.  The hinge on the lid should be facing away from the street (towards your house).
