Good morning Recycling Action Team,
Thank you to everyone who signed up to help with the event. Some bad news, We just received word from AC that they need to reschedule the Plastic Recycling Event that was going to be this Friday, August 26th. IT HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED. THE NEXT PLASTICS RECYCLING COLLECTION WILL BE ON SEPTEMBER 30TH. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD.
The Cordova Center is really beginning to see a lot of use. Bookings for 2017 are pouring in for a myriad of events. The City is looking for folks who are interested in part-time, on-call work to help and assist with major events such as conference, symposiums, weddings and more. If you would like to be a part of the team sign up now. It's easy - just fill out on on-call temporary employment form and say whether you are interested in assisting with the linens, kitchen crew, set up and take down, or audiovisual assistance. For more detail check out the 'JOBS' page on the City's website.

The Public Works crews have been working hard to cut brush and increase visibility along community right of ways. Now it’s your turn to make sure the same efforts take place on your property.
According to local ordinances put in place it is the duty of the property owner to maintain sidewalks adjacent to your business or home. It is also the owners’ responsibility to trim all trees and shrubbery growing on any part of the premises adjacent to the sidewalks or any street or alley.
13.08.040 - Maintenance—Repair requirements.
It shall be the duty of the owner of property abutting upon a sidewalk or sidewalks of the city to maintain such sidewalk or sidewalks in such condition as to conform with the provisions of Section 13.08.010, and to maintain such sidewalk or sidewalks in a condition so as to prevent a hazard to persons using the sidewalk or sidewalk areas. If such owner allows any such sidewalks to fall into a state of disrepair so as to constitute a hazard to public safety, the council may, on its own initiative, effect necessary repairs to such sidewalk or sidewalks, to the extent necessary to eliminate the nonconforming condition and provide adequately for the public safety. The cost of any such repairs shall be assessed as a lien against the premises bordered by such sidewalk and any such assessment shall be a paramount lien upon the premises against which it is assessed.
13.16.010 - Tree trimming.
A. The owner of the premises abutting on any street of this city, or the occupant thereof, if such premises are occupied by any person other than the owner, shall trim all trees and shrubbery growing in the parking, between the sidewalk and roadway, of any such street, and all trees and shrubbery growing on any part of the premises adjacent to the sidewalks or any street or alley, in such manner that the boughs or limbs thereof shall not obstruct the convenient passage and travel along the street, sidewalk, and alleys. Such trees and shrubbery shall be trimmed so that the lowest branches and foliage shall not be lower than ten feet above the roadway of a street or alley, or lower than eight feet above the sidewalk.
And thank you for helping to make Cordova a better place to live!

Greetings! Effective August 1st, 2016, DMVs across Alaska will begin switching the format of temporary cards – we will be phasing out the color cards on special paper to black and white cards on standard paper. Your expired hard card will be returned to you (excluding any type of permit, CDL or J-restricted) with a special hole-punch and connected to the new temporary card. The new black & white temporaries are a cost saving measure & are a common best practice seen at DMVs across the country.
Will the new temporary IDs, etc. be accepted at banks, TSA, etc?
The temporary licenses are for driving purposes only. The black & white temporaries are not intended to be used for identification purposes, including the ID temps. DMV has reached out to law enforcement, TSA, and other agencies with the new procedures, however, customers are advised to have another form of ID to use. If you have concerns you should contact the agency specifically to see what they will accept as a form of identification.
Contact your local DMV or the Police Department if you have any questions.
We like pets but when visiting City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce, CCMC or other city owned facilities, please leave Fido at home or in the car. The city has instituted a "No Pet" policy for all city owned buildings. Certified service animals are excepted.
The City of Cordova Planning Department would like to remind everyone that a Building Permit is required for the erection, construction, establishment, moving, alteration, enlargement, repair, or conversion of ANY building or structure located within the City.
