The City of McCall, Idaho Welcomes You!

Our goal is to provide you with helpful information about McCall's City government. If you need additional information, please contact us by phone, email or postal mail.

The City of McCall conducted a survey inquiring whether or not the McCall community would support a smoking ordinance which would further restrict smoking in certain public areas. Regulating tobacco is a perplexing issue which touches upon personal liberties, individual property rights, public safety, and personal and  community economics. Valley County has a smoking population of 21%, which is almost 50% above the national average which is 15%. According to Central District Health, smoking related illnesses are the number one cause of death in Valley County.
Results of the survey can be

It's that season again. Help us find and fix more potholes within the McCall City limits. Please send an email to, or call 208-634-5580 to let us know about pothole locations (address or intersection), lane, direction and, if possible, how to contact you if we need more information.

Potholes are common to McCall due to the winter weather patterns that consists of many freeze-thaws cycles.  Pothole formation is more dependent upon extreme shifts in temperature, rather than accumulation of snow.  They typically form when moisture seeps into cracks in the surface of the road and freezes, causing it to expand.  When the ice thaws, that space is left empty and combined with frequent or heavy traffic over the cracks, causes the asphalt to crack and fail.

Potholes are repaired with either a "high-performance cold mix" or "hot mix" asphalt patch, depending on the outside temperature at the time of the repair, as well as moisture content in and around the pothole.

Should you notice a pothole that appears hazardous to the Public, please call 634-5580 during normal working hours or Valley County Dispatch at 382-5160 for after hours for immediate service.
