A Message From Your Board Of Trustees

Sun Valley General Improvement District understands these are trying times for some households experiencing financial hardships and some whose health was impacted due to COVID-19.

As our Governor continues to open our state back up, Sun Valley General Improvement District will resume back to normal business practices effective July 1, 2020; this includes reinstating the credit/debit card service fee and non-payment disconnects.  The District unfortunately cannot waive your bill but is available to work out a payment plan to help you get caught up on your balance. If you have an outstanding balance please call and speak with our Customer Service department before June 30, 2020 to arrange for a payment plan that works for both parties to avoid being disconnected.

The Board of Trustees understands the importance of our Parks and what they provide to our community. That is why making decisions to cancel certain events, programs, and the 2020 pool season was difficult. While the Pool may be closed to the public, the District has chosen to use this time to perform repairs using funds from the Recreation Fee. The health and safety of our community and District staff comes first. The District is reminding park users to continue to practice social distancing with others while enjoying your parks.

Please visit the District’s website and calendar to stay up-to-date on District business and events.
