NEW PUBLIC ALERT SYSTEM
We have new software for Public Alerts; these alerts can be Emergency Alerts, Notification Alerts or Informational Alerts. This uses the utility billing database to provide information to our Alert systems; and the data is protected for security. Simply go to www.public-alert.com click on sign in and click on Create Email form for residential info or complete the information below. Thank you!
With the change of the seasons comes changes for the Village. You soon will see improvements at both parks Lions Park and Prairie Springs as some new playground equipment is installed. The equipment is being installed by joint effort. Malta Lions Club, Malta Days Organization & the Village of Malta all pitched in purchasing the new equipment. This just goes to show that when you support your community good things happen! We want to thank everyone who has helping hands in the project.
Please remember with warmer weather children will be more active, at the bus stops, parks & walking street side. Take extra precautions to be alert to their activities.
Spring Clean-up: We know that right now isn't the most beautiful part of spring as winter turns to mud first. But, we do need to remind you that spring clean-up needs to happen if you have garbage/debris in your yard. Our property maintenance division will be giving out warning tickets come May 1, 2018 these tickets can become costly if ignored. As a reminder outdoor yards are not storage sheds. The Village of Malta does not allow outside storage in the village. Inoperable vehicles will also be ticketed as they are also not allowed in the village unless in a garage. Buildings in need of paint, missing siding and in poor condition, or causing a public safety issue will need to be addressed.
The Public Forum regarding chickens being allowed brought no changes to current village code. Chickens/poultry etc.. are not allowed in the Village of Malta. If you currently have them you need to make other arrangements and remove them from the Village. You can contact the Village Hall for information on local farms that will take them.
Parking Fines increased as the Village Board of Trustees updated some Village Code this winter. Parking Fines now start at $25.00. Please obey parking laws to avoid fines. We don't like seeing you get fined either!
As always the Village of Malta Board of Trustees invite citizens to take part in their governance and attend Village Board meetings with any questions or concerns. We want to make Malta the best it can be! Meetings are held the second and fourth Wednesday at 7 p.m., 115 S. Third Street, Malta. Citizen Hearing is at 7:00 p.m..
Any questions stop by the new Village Hall at 302 S. Second Street for assistance. Thank you
