Spring Hydrant Flushing Week @ Meskwaki Settlement
May 3 – May 7 all-day
Spring Hydrant Flushing Week @ Meskwaki Settlement

Meskwaki Public Works Hydrant Flushing Week: May 3-7, 2021

Hydrant Flushing is done (twice a year) to enhance water quality by:

  1. Flushing sediment from the water mains.
  2. Verifying the proper operation of hydrants and valves.
  3. Ensuring firefighting capability.

During Hydrant Flushing:

  • There may be a temporary drop in water pressure at this time.
  • Water may be rusty or cloudy. Discolored water is not harmful and will clear up in a few hours.
  • Do not wash white laundry during this period (wait until cold and hot water are both running clear before laundering whites).
  • Avoid washing laundry during scheduled Flushing times. Wait until the water runs clear at the tap, and then wash a load of dark clothes first.

Some information on what to do after the Hydrant Flushing:

  • If tap water is used during flushing, it could come out full of sediment that causes discoloration. If you encounter discoloration, run cold water for a few minutes allowing new water to work its way into your pipes. If the water is clear, it’s OK to use. If not, wait for a few minutes and check again. This discoloration only affects the appearance of the water; it does not affect the taste or water quality.
  • If pressure or volume seems low, check your faucet screens for trapped particles.

For questions, contact Meskwaki Public Works at (641) 484-4600.

Notice of School Board Election

On March 15, 2021 the Election Committee of the Sac & Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa approved the motion to schedule a School Board Election for the Meskwaki Settlement School for five (5) open positions.

The School Board Election scheduled for May 4, 2021 in the gymnasium at the Sac & Fox Tribal Center on the Meskwaki Settlement from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM is herby CANCELLED.

Code of Sac & Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa which states: In the event that there are five (5) or less qualified candidates for school board identified after any deadline imposed by this code for nomination there shall be no need to conduct an election and those members shall automatically be selected as school board members. If necessary, respective terms shall be determined by the school bard members and if the school board cannot determine, the Tribal Council will.

Therefore; the following individuals, having completed the nomination process in accordance with Chapter 4A. School Board Election of Title 8. Election Code of the Sac & Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa are automatically selected as school board members for the Meskwaki Settlement School:

  1. Shoshonis Brown

This notice shall be posted at the Tribal Offices, the Meskwaki Elementary School, the Meskwaki High School, and mail the same notice to all eligible voters. In addition, the Committee shall cause the notice to be published in any Tribal publications and the notice shall be sent to the office of the Superintendent of the Meskwaki Settlement School, where the notice shall be sent to all parents/guardians of students currently attending the Meskwaki Settlement School.
