Orofino income survey May 26-27

   The Orofino Mayor Ryan Smathers and the City Council would like the citizens of Orofino to know that the city will be conducting a random Low to Moderate Income (LMI) Survey to determine our community's eligibility for an Idaho Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG).

   The survey will be conducted Wednesday and Thursday, May 26-27 and administered by the Clearwater Economic Development Association. City staff will conduct the survey by going door to door to households randomly selected by Clearwater Economic Development Association. The city does not determine which homes will be surveyed.

   The grant would be used to supplement other funds in the design and construction of a new City of Orofino Water Treatment Plant. In the near future, the city will begin a series of public education forums describing the need to replace our existing Water Treatment Plant.
