Cascade Area Businesses are owned and operated by long time Cascade Families. With growth in business, tourism and economical residential housing, Cascade has much to offer. Come see our historic buildings, fine shops, and great eateries.

Hydrant Flushing Week of April 6th

The City of Cascade will flush fire hydrants the week of April 6th Monday through Friday, between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm. During this time, water users may experience low water pressure, rusty water, and air in water lines. Washing white laundry is not recommended. Water pressure will return after flushing is complete. Running an outside faucet can eliminate any remaining rusty water or air in water lines. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.


Reminder: Per Code 136.04: Snow, ice and accumulations shall be removed from sidewalks within 24-hours of the last accumulation. If a property owner does not remove snow, ice or accumulations within a reasonable time, the City may do so and assess the costs against the property owner for collection in the same manner as a property tax.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the safety of the Republic Services employees the spring cleanup is cancelled. Tentatively the fall cleanup is scheduled for October 10th. More details will be coming in early fall. Thank you.

Remember to Shop Local Buy Local

The Mayor, along with the Cascade City Council, is strongly encouraging residents of Cascade to Shop Local, Buy Local during this difficult time. With the order handed down from Governor Reynolds on Tuesday, March 17th, our local restaurants have had to stop offering dine-in services to customers. The restaurants are still offering carry-out and/or curbside pickup to customers. Consider purchasing gift cards to be used when they do begin having dine-in available. Please do what we can to show our support to these businesses, as well as, ALL the businesses in Cascade. They need our support more than ever during this unprecedented time. Mayor of Cascade Greg Staner
