Slow pace for new IDs

Looking to get a new ID card? There may be a slight delay, due to technical issues. Only one of the two workstations can issue cards right now and fewer customers can be served. The team is trying to accommodate as many people as possible. If you’re with the 173rd Airborne Brigade, go to your S-1 personnel office to get a new card. Please plan accordingly and thanks for your patience.

Careful turning into bike lane

Community members who access Caserma Ederle through the “housing gate,” should be mindful of the bike path as they turn into Via Casermette from Viale della Pace. Several large steel panels were recently put up near that corner, blocking the view for drivers to see oncoming cyclists. The Italian Base Commander is discussing the issue with the city. Meanwhile, drivers coming on to post using this route should take extra caution in this area.

New Water Rules For Vicenza

The mayor of Vicenza signed an ordinance limiting use of drinking water and imposing fees for wasting water. The Vicenza city ordinance dated June 23rd requires that citizens and businesses limit use of drinking water until 31 August. The mayor has decreed that water supplied by the aqueduct, i.e. tap water, must not be used to wash squares, driveways and vehicles. The ordinance is also turning off decorative fountains except those having a water recycling system. Watering gardens and orchards is allowed only from midnight to 6 a.m. Citizens are also asked to reduce domestic use of tap water to drinking and hygienic uses only. Fees for failure to comply range from 25 to 500 euros. City officials said that the ordinance was prompted by months without significant rainfall and an unusually early heat wave. Neighboring regions of Emilia Romagna and Lombardy have undertaken similar crisis measures.

Slow down at Via Aldo Moro entrance

Construction vehicles may cross the roadway at the Via Aldo Moro gate, (Gate 1). They are working on the Caserma Ederle portion of the ongoing Army Family Housing Construction (AFHC) project. When entering the approach lane, use caution. The speed limit slows to 10 kilometers per hour until you pass the guard shack.
