Capital For A Day

On Thursday, September 16th, the City of Ammon played host to Governor Brad Little as part of the "Capital for a Day" program. (Pictured Left: Governor Brad Little, Mayor Sean Coletti, Representative Wendy Horman

The purpose of this program is to give Idaho citizens a chance to voice concerns directly to the governor and his administration. Each month the governor visits a city in a different county and speaks with constituents about the issues affecting them.

Mayor Sean Coletti posted the following on Facebook shortly after the event:

Today was a great day! This is how government is supposed to work! Governor Little came to Ammon to listen to the concerns of Idaho citizens. I was there to listen too, along with Representatives Gary Marshall and Julianne Young. 

Inside Ammon City Hall, great questions were asked on everything from school choice to fishing on the South Fork to housing to tax policy to vaccine mandates and everything in between. Outside, a peaceful protest was happening regarding vaccine mandates. 

It was great to meet with and hear from all of you whether inside or outside! Citizens who care enough to show up and speak up will help preserve our nation. Way to keep it classy Ammon and help me understand your concerns by hearing them directly from you.


9/11 20th Anniversary Observance

Upon the 20th anniversary of the events of 9/11, many residents of Ammon took the time to reflect back on what happened that day and how it changed our world.

The ongoing pandemic is only the second time in recent history when the world came to a screeching halt. The first was on September 11, 2001.

At the new memorial mound in McCowin Park the Ammon Fire Department hosted a 2 hour ceremony marking each event of that fateful day with a moment of silence. Beginning with Flight 11 striking the North Tower at 8:46 am, and ending with the fall of the North Tower at 10:28 am 6 moments of silence were observed in all.

Starting on Thursday, September 9th, Ammon Arts put on a production of Hole in the Sky a play commemorating those who died in the towers. Guests could watch the play in person at the Thunder Ridge Performing Arts Center, or online via a video feed. There were 4 performances in total, two occurring on the anniversary itself.

The play depicts how a seemingly normal day became a living nightmare for those trapped above the impact zone.
