Have a Healthy and Happy Halloween with Safety Guidance

Halloween is coming up, but it will look different than years past because, you know, the COVID-19 pandemic.

Johnson County Public Health and other experts caution that traditional trick-or-treating is riskier than alternatives; although interactions door-to-door are typically quick, they usually involve close and frequent contact, the conditions that spread SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Often, many kids and families gather at doors or on sidewalks, and the more households they visit, the greater chance that germs are spread and linger. Here are some ways to keep yourself, your kids and your community healthy.

Storm Drains Around Town

Storm drains are the mouths to rivers and lakes, and when pollutants enter the storm drains, the can easily be carried into waterbodies. Murals found on storm drains throughout North Liberty remind the public the important role these drains play in Iowa’s water quality and our responsibility to keep them clean.

The storm drain project began in 2018 when the city’s Tree and Storm Water Advisory Board expressed interest in duplicating similar projects implemented in other communities. Designs were collected from students of Penn Elementary and Liberty High School in 2018 and from Penn Elementary in 2019 and were judged and selected blindly by a committee made up of local residents, city staff and advisory board members. The selected students created six murals under the supervision of local artist and art teacher Heidi Goeken.

Want to join the fun? Painted storm drains can add a splash of color to your neighborhood. We invite you to add more public art to our city by designing a storm drain with an environmental or clean-water theme of your own.
