City Hall Closed in Celebration of Independence Day


Please be advised that the offices at City Hall will be closed Thursday, July 4th thru Sunday, July 7th in honor of Independence Day. We sincerely wish you a safe and happy Fourth of July! 

Attention Dog Owners:

The July 4th weekend creates a “perfect storm” for missing pets. Statistics show that more dogs are lost over the 4th of July holiday than any other time of the year. Public and neighborhood fireworks displays, open doors and distractions at family gatherings are common reasons for a pet’s disappearance.  We have compiled our tips and suggestions to help owners and helpers find a missing dog quickly and safely. 

If your dog goes missing from the sound of fireworks – don’t panic. Immediately put out your dog’s favorite blanket, some food and water, and something that smells like you (a dirty sock or pillowcase). Then check with Payette County Dispatch on their Facebook page or call (208) 642-6006 to see if your furry friend has been impounded. If your dog was taken to the pound, be prepared to pay the necessary fees to have it released to your custody.  THE CITY OF NEW PLYMOUTH pet licensing ordinance and impound fees, are found here. If you  have questions, you can call city hall at (208) 278-5338.
