PUBLIC WORKS TEAM 2-15-12 LMS
City Councilman Fred Waidely told the February 15 meeting of the Salmon City Council that during the February 8 meeting of the cityís Public Works Team one of the subjects on its agenda was deer management.
He said the deer management plan and the survey prepared by the Fish and Game were discussed and it was decided the plan and survey will be passed on to the Public Safety Team for further action. They will work with survey author Bret Stansberry to shorten and simplify the survey.
Public Works Superintendent Mickey Verbeck presented the federally mandated regulations on all traffic control signs. They are to be replaced by high intensity reflective signs by 2015 and street signs must be replaced with reflective signs by 2018. He said all cities must comply with the unfunded mandate.
Verbeck said that although signs do not wear out they do fade over time and of course are occasionally damaged. He said he has an inventory of signs to use before he intends to replace city signs with the high reflective types. He projects that the current inventory will be depleted over the next few years.
Waidely reported that Gregg Lowell presented a request on behalf of Robert Blackadar concerning the Water Master of the Farmers Ditch. Because it wasnít a Public Works issue no action was taken. Verbeck represents the city as a member of the Farmerís Ditch Water Board and he will take the request to the next board meeting.
The Public Works Committee Team will be meeting on March 14th at 4PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room. The team meets on the second Wednesday of each month.
