#CPDSafeSummer

This summer CPD would like to see everyone being safe! We ask that as you go about your summer activities, you take a couple seconds to snap a quick picture showing off that you, your family or friends are being safe this summer! Whether it’s buckling your seat belt (prior to operation of course), wearing a life jacket while swimming or boating, looking both ways before crossing the street on the way to the library or pool or anything else that you’d like to share. Upload the picture to Facebook and tag us at Carlisle Police Department or use the hashtag #CPDSafeSummer in your post. We look forward to seeing all the safe pictures come in!

Golf Cart Inspections and Registrations

There have been some recent changes made to the Carlisle Code of Ordinances pertaining to golf cart operations within the City. One highlighted change is that the registration and inspection process is now required to be done annually instead of the previous one-time occurrence.

For those wishing to operate golf carts on city streets, the registration fee is $25.00 per year and the permit is valid from January 1st through December 31st of each year. Each year going forward, you will need to make arrangements with our office to complete the inspection process to ensure that all the code requirements are met prior to operation.

If you have any questions or concerns or need to register your golf cart for the remainder of 2019 calendar year, please contact our office at (515) 989-4121.

 

City Council Vacancy

Last night, Carlisle City Council accepted the resignation of Councilman Josiah Doughty. Josiah and his family will be moving for a job opportunity in Mississippi. It was noted by several council members that Josiah did a great job of jumping in to his position with both feet after he was appointed. He took an active approach in leadership and made a point to work closely with elected officials and staff to tackle many different topics. He will definitely be missed by the community and we wish him and his family luck in their new adventure.

Councilman Doughty’s position runs through December 31, 2019 and is up for election this year. After accepting Councilman Doughty’s resignation, Council decided to move forward with appointment proceedings. We will be accepting applications from interested citizens to be appointed to fill the term until 5:00 p.m. on June 27. Council will hold a special meeting to interview candidates and appoint a replacement on July 1, 2019.

Though Council has chose to move forward with filling the vacancy by appointment, the electors of the City have the right to file a petition requiring that the vacancy be filled by a special election, by filing a petition in accordance with Iowa Code Section 372.13(2)(a) within fourteen days after publication of notice in the Carlisle Citizen or within fourteen days after appointment is made by the City Council, whichever is later.

Anyone interested in applying for appointment to this council position may file an application with the City of Carlisle. The application can be obtained by contacting the Carlisle City Administrator or Carlisle City Clerk at 989-3224 or by sending an email to cityhall@carlisleiowa.org. Those interested may also schedule time with the City Administrator to learn about current topics being discussed with the City Council.

The timeline for appointment will look like:

Official notice runs in Carlisle Citizen – June 5

Final day council accepts applications – June 27

Special council meeting for interviews – July 1 – 6:30 p.m.

Last day for citizen petition to be filed – July 15

City Switching Electronic Payment Systems

The City of Carlisle will be transitioning to a new electronic payment system called GovPayNet. You will be seeing new links to this system on the city’s website appearing in the next few days. When you click on them, the link will take you to an external website govpaynow.com. Please check the area towards the top of the website in green to ensure you are paying City of Carlisle and that the area labeled “For” is correct. The “For” area should be something like Utility Payments or Building Permits. You can then fill out the information required and choose to pay by card or echeck. Once payment is complete, city staff will receive an email confirming receipt.

The official transition date to this new system is May 29, 2019. We are not expecting any issues during the transition period but issues do occasionally happen when dealing with technology. If you are making electronic online payments on May 28-May 30, we encourage you to contact City Hall at 515-989-3224 or cityhall@carlisleiowa.org to verify that a payment was received. Payments not received by the city due to issues during use of the electronic online payment system will be deemed late and processed as such unless proof of payment is submitted.
