PARKS AND RECREATION TEAM DISCUSSIONS 8-15-12 LMS
Salmon City Councilman Jim Kluesner is chairman of the city’s Parks and Recreation Team. At the council’s August 15 meeting he reported on topics discussed at his team’s meeting earlier this month.
He said the lifeguard chairs at the swimming pool have been repaired by Steel and Ranch and that councilman and Parks and Recreation Team member Jim Bockelman is looking into whether the lifeguard platforms could be replaced by QB beams.
Kluesner said previous complaints concerning the ladies dressing rooms at the swimming pool have been resolved by shifting some class times. He also said there have been complaints on the use of cell phones and the team reaffirmed the ‘no cell phones in the pool’ rule.
Swimming Pool Manager Jenny Torgerson will be facilitating this year’s written agreement with the school for the costs related to after season pool use for swimming classes.
The swimming pool will be closed to general public use on August 25. Morning lap and aerobics classes will continue until September 14. The school will begin using the pool on August 29.
Kluesner said that the subject of spraying thistle weeds at the cemetery was mentioned during the team’s roundtable discussion. Parks Superintendent Charley Cockerel said the spraying will be done at the right time for best results. City crews have sprayed the weeds around the north end “Welcome to Salmon” sign.
The possibility of building a wheel chair ramp for the Island Park building will be referred to the family trust that takes care of the building to see if that idea is acceptable. Kluesner said there are also concerns over constructing an access ramp in close proximity to the Skateboard Park. He indicated the search for a solution to the lack of handicap access at the building will continue.
The next meeting of the Parks and Recreation Team is scheduled for 11AM September 12 at the Town Square Park.
