LAST REGULAR MEETING OF THE YEAR 12-7-11
City Parks and Recreation Chairman Jim Kluesner told the December 7 meeting of the Salmon City Council that the committee has still not heard from organizations which use the City Park baseball diamonds. The committee is awaiting schedules for next year’s baseball season.
The committee also discussed a purchase vs. rental of one of the swimming pool propane tanks. There are two 1,000 gallon tanks at the pool. The city owns one and the other tank is currently on a rental basis which limits propane purchase to the company renting the tank. It was felt that purchasing the tank now being rented would allow for propane purchases to be made on a bid basis. The subject will be placed on the council’s January 4 agenda.
The City Council voted to not have the second meeting this month so the December 4 meeting was the last regular meeting of the year. It was also the last for some retiring councilmen, other than a brief appearance prior to the January swearing in of newly elected council members. Veteran councilman Bud Bartlett thanked his fellow council members for the way they have worked together. He said, “They say that you always learn no matter how old you get, and I found that out. I want to thank all of you.” He was in turn thanked for his years of service by Mayor Leo Marshall.
Marshall added that if any urgent matters arise which need council attention the council can be summoned and the meeting date advertised.
The city’s Public Works Committee, chaired by Bartlett, will be meeting briefly on December 14 at 4:45PM however other city committees will not be meeting until January. At that time new committee assignments for council members will be announced.
The Local Option Tax Commission will be holding its regular monthly meeting on December 27 at 5:30PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
