Business before the August 1st meeting of the Salmon City Council involved the cityís proposed budget, requests and bid awards.
The council unanimously passed the second reading of Ordinance 12-786 which is the cityís proposed $3,532,432 budget for the fiscal year that begins on October 1st of this year. The ordinance will become law when the third reading is passed.
Calvary Chapelís Vacation Bible School begins August 6th and the church requested permission for evening closures of a portion of Church Street.
Bible School will be held the 6th through the 10th from 5:30 to 9PM and those are the street closure hours requested. The council approved the request after ascertaining Police Chief KV Felker saw no problems with it. For those evenings, Church Street will be blocked off on the west side of the church between Shoup and Shanafelt streets. Behind the church to the north, Shanafelt will be closed between Church and Lillian streets.
A special event permit was unanimously approved for the August 4th Blues, Brews and Barbeque sponsored by the Salmon Arts Council.
After reviewing three submitted roofing bids the council made the selections official.
The contract for reroofing the Police Station and the swimming pool building was awarded to Phillips Construction. Metal roofing was chosen over asphalt for its durability and life span. Phillips bid for the Police Station roof was $7,260 and for the swimming pool building the bid was $10,121.
A thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) single ply membrane roofing was selected for the City Hall roof. It will replace a similar covering. City Administrator George Ambrose said the material requires a specialty application and the applicator must be warranted through the manufacturer. He said the newest section of that roofing is 30 years old. Doug Omyer Construction was awarded the job with his bid of $43,470.
Ambrose said the Finance Team had researched the bids and that the money will come from the cityís Capital Expenditure Fund. He said that due to leakage all three buildings must be done and he recommended they be finished before mid October.
As per official approval at the July 18 City Council meeting, a Professional Services Agreement with Steve Frazee has been written for the engineering and design of a shared use pathway along Highway 28 between Lakota Meats and City Park. Mayor Leo Marshall signed the contract. Obtaining an engineering design is part of the steps required for the pathway by the Idaho Transportation Department.
The next meeting of the Salmon City Council will be August 8th beginning at 6PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
