Weed & Pest Control

The Public Health Department is also responsible for Weed & Pest control. The City of Powell sprays and/or mows weeds on City property, including alleys and right-of-ways. We try to work with homeowners as much as possible and we ask residents to keep their weeds mowed or sprayed. Failure to keep weeds under control will result in a special notice giving you 10 working days to complete the task.

 

Great care is exercised in our mosquito-spraying program and we use only EPA approved chemicals at proper recommended doses. We will shut the spraying machine off at your property if you wish, but you must give us advance notice. Spraying operations can only occur when wind & weather cooperates so our spraying schedule varies. If you have questions call 754-3552.

Message from the Mayor

 

   

Wow, is it summer already? Well, maybe ... and soon it will be fall. I hope all the folks in Powell are planning and scurrying around to enjoy as much of the season as possible.

 

At the city we are working in the same mode --- making sure baseball fields are in order, parks are clean, and, yes, tending to that boring thing we call infrastructure.

 

The Absaroka Street project is in full swing and we appreciate everyone's patience as they guess which cross street is open on any given day. Thankfully, the project is on schedule in spite of the rain.

 

The city's electric system took a hit with the recent fire, but it will be repairable. Our substation is close to 30 years old, but well maintained. While we experienced a major outage with some damage, we will get back to normal operations in a reasonable amount of time with few interruptions in service.

 

I believe our city employees handled this accident in a very professional manner and I would be remiss in not thanking all those who came to help. Our neighbors have been tremendously supportive from the second the explosion occurred -- including Western Area Power Authority, Garland Light & Power, Powell Fire Department, City of Cody, local businesses and many more. Folks jumped in to help in a variety of ways and we are very grateful. What a "trial by fire" to welcome Zack Thorington to his new position as city manager! Seriously, we welcome Zack aboard in his new role and look forward to his leadership for the City of Powell.

 

Crews are starting to slurry seal designated streets; you should have already received notice if your neighborhood is on the list.

 

As always keep an eye out as you drive around town, because lots of kids are at play and on bicycles -- and please stay off your phones. Also, take note that a few streets have new speed limits.

 

As July heats up, yards around the community are looking good -- and hopefully your barbecue events are not being ruined by the thunderstorms. As always, thank you for all you do to make Powell a beautiful and safe town.

 

(John Wetzel is the mayor of Powell.)
