Wastewater Election Results

Wastewater Proposal results from May 16th election are being reported today by the Valley County Election Office. Data shows that 712 ballots were cast and all questions passed by more than 70%. That means the decision to annex the City’s sewer system into Payette Lakes Recreational Water and Sewer District control along with the request to bond for improvements to the reuse system, treatment plant and paying off debts passed with a distinct majority of current McCall residents, McCall homeowners, and PLRWSD property owners.

Now the work begins as the City of McCall and PLRWSD coordinate together on projects to meet important IDEQ permit guidelines, continue development of the reuse improvements and continue to provide quality service to all patrons. More information to come as information arises on the timelines and future of your wastewater service.

McCall Police Department wants to remind you to,

McCall Police Department, with the assistance from the Idaho Transportation Department, are going to be participating in a Seat Belt Mobilization, May 22 to June 4, to promote vehicle safety and safety restraint use by Idaho drivers.

Safety restraints, when used, are the most effective safety feature ever introduced for vehicles, cutting in half the likelihood for fatal and serious injuries resulting from traffic crashes.  (Traffic Safety Facts 2012, NHTSA).   By this estimate there were 54 lives saved in 2014 by seat belt usage and an additional 34 lives could have been save if everyone had buckled up.

Idaho’s observed safety restraint use rate decreased slightly from 81.6% in 2013 to 80.2% in 2014.  While the observed seat belt use rate was 80%, only 44% of the motor vehicle occupants killed in crashes were wearing seat belts.  If everyone had been wearing seat belts, 34 of the 67 unbelted motor vehicle occupants may have been saved (Idaho Traffic Crashes 2014).

Drivers are not the only ones affected by seatbelt use in the country.  It is just as important to use safe practices and properly working equipment when securing your children in a motor vehicle.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 4 and ages 11-14, according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The research goes on to show that effective child safety seats reduce fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers, ages 1 to 4 years old.

From 2010 to 2014, 21 children under 7 years old were killed in Idaho motor vehicle crashes. Of these children, 11 were not restrained. During the same period, 66 children were seriously injured; 41 of whom were not restrained. An additional 415 children were visibly injured; 140 of whom were not restrained.

Parents continue to place very young children, infant to age 3, in a child seat at a high rate of 94 percent, but only 62 percent of parents place their toddlers (ages 4 to 6) in child safety seats or booster seats.

Let’s all work together, Idaho, to increase the safety restraint use rate and move forward to a safer driving experience for 2017.
