BAKER REPORTS ON FINANCE COMMITTEE 6-1-11 LMS
City Finance Committee Chairman Jim Baker told the June 1st meeting of the Salmon City Council that reconsideration of a previous recommendation he had made regarding the Lemhi Education Project was one of the topics discussed when the committee met earlier that day.
The recommendation being considered was to contribute the salary connected to an open seat on the council to the Education Project. Baker elaborated later in the meeting on his reasons for withdrawing that recommendation.
Baker said he is encouraging individual council members to support the project with private cash donations and suggested a relationship with School District 291 would be a good one for project leaders to develop.
The Finance Committee discussed fee waivers currently in place for the official Sacajawea Center partners and Baker said the discussion will continue in greater detail during upcoming 2012 budget work sessions.
Baker said the city has received a draft document from the Department of Environmental Quality which states the department will fund up to $3,028,697 million for city sewer system upgrades at zero percent interest to be repaid in annual installments over the next 20 years. The repayment takes into account the $471,303 of principal forgiveness for a total project cost currently estimated at $3,500,000.
A public hearing on the process of obtaining Judicial Confirmation of the proposed sewer system project will take place during the councilís June 15th meeting.
