Water is a big issue in Clifton, and as of right now, the water supply is adequate.
Problems could arise in the future, and Mayor John Gailey suggested the city monitor the water usage at both the springs and the well. One way to monitor the springs is for the city to go into survival mode, shutting down the well for several hours. This would mean no outside watering for residents while the city relies only on the springs. He said they need to know how much water the city uses for each water source. Councilman Larry Palmer said the city should begin to seek other sources for water, perhaps checking into additional water rights. Resident and city employee Neil Fuller stated he is concerned about water and future growth.
Clifton received a $40,000 grant from the Local Highway Technical Assistant Council, out of Boise, to do a study on future improvements to the roads and streets. Roads are a topic of discussion the city has addressed many times in the past, and with a limited road budget some may remain gravel with an improved base, while others could see chip and seal. As of the September meeting, no improvements have been approved. The $40,000 grant will help in deciding what road projects will be done in the coming year.
