Jerome Officials Look For Ways To Improve Infrastructure
Jerome city officials have cut the $8000 dollars it had budgeted for city fireworks this year. This is just one step that officials are taking to save money during a tight year spurred on by the dour economy. There may be some fundraising efforts to get the money but they say it needs public support. This is a minor problem compared to the growing list of city facilities that need major overhauls. Besides the well-published fact that the Jerome County Jail is in dire need of major improvements the city is also trying to get public input on ways to handle a deteriorating city hall, police station and fire station. City Officials in Jerome are taling about a bond option to build some new municipal facilities and that getting public input would be an important factor in that discussion. Officials say this is a good time to talk about bond options because interest rates are low right now.
