|COUNCIL ACTS ON SEVERAL ISSUES|
CITY BUSINESS 8-18-10 LMS
Several sewer and water disconnect requests were among the items of business before the Salmon City Council at its August 18 meeting.
The first request considered was for a piece of property on Keith Street which will house a garage therefore no sewer and water services are needed. The council approved a disconnection.
Three other disconnect requests were also reviewed. Two of the locations were on Shoup Street, at 1007 and 1009. The third disconnect request was for the vacant lot at 1403 Main Street where Grannyís Steakhouse once stood.
Guided by City Public Works Superintendent Mickey Verbeckís recommendations the only request not approved was for 1007 Shoup Street where what used to be a Laundromat is located. Verbeck recommended leaving the utilities connected as long as the building is there. His recommendation will be discussed by the Public Works and Safety Committee at its September 8th meeting.
Liquor licenses that have been received from the state by 11 businesses were approved by the council. The list included Discounts Unlimited, the Elks Club, the Corner Store, the Owl Club, the Eagles, Main Street Chevron, 93 Mini-Mart, Service Grocery, Salmon River Quick Stop, the Lantern and the Junk Yard Bistro. An additional 11 licenses were approved contingent on the businesses receiving their licenses from the state. The approval process goes through the state, the county and then the city. The licenses must be in place by September 1st in order for the establishments to continue serving and/or selling liquor.
A letter of engagement for audit services by Certified Public Accountant Bob Baker was approved by the council. The letter states Bakerís fees for conducting the yearly audit will not exceed $13,250.
During Roundtable discussions Council President Leo Marshall City said he, with council approval, will schedule a meeting between city officials, County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman and interim Police Chief K.V. Felker to discuss various topics of mutual interest. The council approved the meeting.
In other business, having heard no public comments on its first reading, the council passed the second and waived the third reading of Ordinance 10-764. The adopted ordinance amends city code to reflect the newly drawn and documented city boundaries and corresponding map.
