Dear Minidoka County,
Minidoka County Commissioners and Minidoka County Highway District Commissioners would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to exercise good practices regarding public roadways. As you are aware, water on roadways causes a number of problems, from deterioration of roads to safety hazards for drivers within our county.
Pursuant to Idaho Code 18-3908, it is illegal to allow irrigation water to flow into or to be sprinkled upon the public highways. A violation of this section subjects the violator to fines and could constitute a misdemeanor offense. Please note that the Minidoka County Sheriff’s Office intends to emphasize enforcement of Idaho Code 18-3908 this season, ensuring compliance with the law.
Our goal is to keep our roadways safe for our citizens and to protect tax dollars by protecting our roads. To achieve this goal Minidoka County along with the Minidoka County Highway District has employed a code enforcement officer through the Minidoka County Sheriff’s Dept. The Minidoka County Commissioners and Minidoka County Highway District appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Minidoka County Board of Commissioners
and Minidoka County Highway District Board of Commissioners
