Happy 4th of July!!!

The City of Arma wishes you and your family a safe and exciting 4th of July holiday! The 4th of July, known as Independence Day, celebrates our independence as a nation on July 4, 1776. To learn more about the History of America's Independence Day, please visit the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).

  1. As you celebrate with friends and family, we would like to remind you to be safe and take precautions to ensure the safety of our community. It is important to remember that fireworks can pose a fire and safety hazard to those who use them.
  2. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has the following safety tips for fireworks:
  • Make sure fireworks are legal in your area before purchasing or using them.
  • Never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks.
  • Always read warning labels and performance descriptions before lighting a firework.
  • Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.
  • Only light fireworks one at a time.
  • Never place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse and move to a safe distance immediately after lighting fireworks.
  • Only use fireworks outdoors, away from buildings and vehicles, and never point/throw fireworks at anyone.
  • After fireworks complete their burning, to prevent a trash fire, douse the spent device with plenty of water from a bucket or hose before discarding the device.
  1. For more information on firework safety, please visit the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
  2. We caution anyone traveling during the holiday to always wear your seat belt and never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Instead, plan for a designated driver to get you home safely. Not only do you risk your life when you drive impaired, but you also put the other drivers and passengers you share the roadway with at risk.
  3. The City of Arma hopes you and your family have a great 4th of July holiday!     Mayor Rob Lessen

We want to hear from you!

The city of Arma is looking at getting what is called "Text caster". This is an app you get on your cellular devices that will alert you immediately when something is happening in Arma that you need to be aware of. This will not cost the residents of Arma anything! You do not need Wi-Fi to have it either. The city of Arma would love your feedback on what you think about this product and if it would be helpful to the residents of Arma. To give us your feedback you can go to the main page of this website. Go to the contact page, put in your info and send it off! We thank you for your support as the Residents of Arma and can't wait to hear what you think!

Important information about the maintenance happening on the City of Armas water tower from Tom, 

As you probably know we lost a lot of water pressure last night so I
wanted to give you an update on what's going on and what we are trying to do to make sure it doesn't happen again.

The problem was the demand this time of year exceeded what Bone Creek was able to supply so our system was just about emptied. When this happened Jay from Bone Creek allowed us to partly open a bypass valve feeding a bigger line into our system which brought the pressure back up and refilled our South Tower overnight so we are back to normal for now.  The bad thing is that the bypass line that we partially opened is "un-metered" so Bone Creek can't tell how much water they are sending us.  I am meeting with Jay to discuss what options we can pursue, and I've informed Chuck Kunshek who handles the water for Franklin, that he will have to tie on to the other Rural Water district as we are going to have to turn Franklin off for now later today.

I also asked Piper to not open the pool today but our plan is for one of us to start coming in at 5 am and fill the pool before people start
waking up and using water. 

I will keep you up to date on what is going on.  If you have any ideas
please share them with us.

Also, I have been in contact with Cless from the beginning of the
project and even last night to make sure we are doing everything the way they did it last time (about 17 yrs ago).

So we are doing our best to get everything right.
