|CITY HALL UPDATE|
PUBLIC WORKS TEAM REPORT 9-19-12 LMS
The city’s Public Works Team met on September 12 and team Chairman Fred Waidely reported meeting results to the September 19 Salmon City Council meeting.
An update on the City Hall lighting upgrades and status of the building’s elevator showed the lighting project has been completed and the elevator modifications will be completed when Otis elevator personnel make their next scheduled preventive maintenance visit. Adjustments to the elevator were made during the last routine Otis maintenance check and Waidely said the elevator has been operating properly ever since.
A city resident attended the meeting to express dissatisfaction over the water pressure at his residence. David Van Ness said he has sufficient water flow most of the time for regular domestic use but does not have enough pressure for lawn watering. Waidely said it has been established that a fire hydrant is needed in the Monk Street area and a four to six inch water main was scheduled to be installed in 2014.
Waidely said the Public Works Team recommendation to the City Council is that the project be done in the first half of 2013 in order to accommodate a fire hydrant as well as provide more adequate water volume to the six residences on that street. A discussion on the recommendation will be placed on the October 3rd City Council meeting agenda.
Mark and Kristin Troy were in attendance at the Public Works Team meeting to discuss options for hooking up their Court House Drive business to city utility services. Waidely said all options were discussed however none was acceptable to all parties. The City Administrator will now consult with City Attorney Fred Snook for legal guidance and the information provided will be discussed at the team’s next meeting.
Waidely reported that 2.56 miles of city streets were chip sealed this summer. Streets resurfaced included Waller, Monroe, Washington, 4th, 18th, South Church, Opal Street and the Opal Street parking lot. The alley behind Wells Fargo Bank and the Coffee Shop was resurfaced as well as Idaho, Capital and Baker Avenues. West 1st Avenue has been placed on next year’s resurfacing schedule.
The Public Works Team will be meeting on the 10th of October at 2PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room. The meetings are open to the public.
