Each year after that there will be a renewal fee of $25.00 all of which is donated to NCMC. We are proud to be a part of something that supports our community!

Parks Update

Every year the City of Gooding and the fire department make sure the fireworks event is handled safely for all of us to enjoy. Last year the fire department expressed concerns for the safety of their personnel engaged in the ignition of the fireworks display. So this year we have added rental of controls to allow remote firing ability to our fireworks purchase. Because of this we had to reduce the number of fireworks to offset this cost. We are seeking donations from businesses and the public alike to maintain the volume of fireworks which had to be reduced to provide the extra margin of safety. This cost is roughly $800, so all donations will be greatly appreciated and the sooner we receive them, the better the discount we receive for early purchase from the supplier. All donations can be made at city hall; just be sure to note that they are for the fireworks.

A local eagle scout has designed, built, and installed two book donation kiosks in the Library Park at City Hall. The idea is that books should be available to all, so if you need something to read, take a book and if wish to share a book please leave one in return… (photo attached)
