The City of Delphi will be conducting our annual Spring clean-up of Morning Heights and Robinson-Baum cemeteries beginning the week of April 11th. Any flowers or arrangements that you wish to keep should be picked up prior to April 11th. Decorations remaining will be removed up by the City. We thank you in advance and should you have any questions please feel free to contact the City of Delphi 765-564-2027.
State-of-the-art water meters will be installed throughout the City of Delphi beginning Thursday, January 27th and continuing for several weeks. The new meters are lead-free iPERL meters which have no moving parts and maintain their accuracy over a 20-year lifetime. They will replace AccuSTREAM meters currently in the system which have a 15-year lifespan, and which can show some degradation in accuracy over time. The AccuSTREAM meters in the current system are past their half-life. The iPERL meters will be set to record usage at 1 cubic foot compared with 10 cubic feet for the old meters. This will greatly increase the ability to detect leaks in the system, particularly for customers. Once the changeover is complete, the City of Delphi will utilize Sensus Analytics for data management of the system. Instant reading of water consumption will then be possible making leak detection more rapid and providing quicker customer service.
Meter installation will be handled by Advanced Utility Services (AUS) whose installers and vehicles will be marked. The South Hill in Delphi will be the first area to receive the new meters. For each meter, the changeout is expected to require no longer than 30 minutes during which time the water will be turned off. After the changeout, residents may experience some air in their lines or slight discoloration of the tap water. Letting the water run for several minutes will clear these conditions. If questions arise, or the conditions persist, please contact the Water Department at 765-564-3944.
Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts on transportation needs for the future of Delphi and Carroll County!
The Common Council has authorized a fourth round of the Delphi Small Business Resilience Grant (SBRG IV) program initiated in 2020 to assist businesses that have been impacted by the COVID pandemic. The SBRG IV grant is available to businesses that have been located in the City Delphi or within one mile of the corporate limits since July 1, 2021. The maximum possible award is $5,000 per business.
Since 2020, 101 grants totaling more than $478,000 have been awarded to 53 businesses for COVID assistance, funded in large part through grants from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs. In SBRG IV the City will distribute the remaining $73,500 in OCRA funds. Priority will be given to businesses that have not received funding in all of the three previous rounds and to businesses located within the corporate limits.
