The Hometown Pride Committee is undertaking the task of re-branding the City to help find the current identity. They have created a survey which will help us better understand where we are at and how the citizens of Camanche view the City itself. You can help be part of that by taking the survey. We ask that you only take the survey once, and you do not have to answer every question to complete the survey, but it helps. The button below will take you to an external link in Google Forms. Thank you for your participation!

Earlier this year, the City of Camanche entered into an agreement with a company connected to SLWC (Service Line Warranties of Canada), for citizens to have the opportunity to purchase insurance coverage for thei water and sewer utility lines. The cost can be extensive if a repair is necessary, and there is responsibility of the homeowner to repair their lines to a certain point. This program is also available to cover water lines within your home as well.
If you have questions about the program, you are invited to call the company directly at 866-922-9004. This is not a service offered by the City of Camanche. We cannot answer your questions about the program here.
Here is a new effort to aid in communication with the public. We are now creating a public packet for folks to have a better idea of what is going on in the City. We hope to keep this going and add even more information moving forward. Please give us your feedback on the idea! The packets for public can be found by clicking the button below
