|EDGE VIEW STREET ACCEPTED|
PUBLIC WORKS TEAM REPORT 4-17-13 LMS
Guests at the April 10 meeting of the city’s Public Works Team were Steve Adams of the Edge View sub division and David Alvarez, Idaho Transportation Department District Six Project Development Engineer.
City Councilman Fred Waidely, Public Works Team Chairman, reported meeting results to the April 17 meeting of the Salmon City Council.
He said Adams was there to request that the city dedicate the Edge View Residential Community’s Easy Street as a public right-of-way as per the development agreement with the city. The team forwarded the request to the April 17 meeting of the City Council where it was unanimously approved.
Prior to official approval City Planner Dan Maiyo told the council that the developer has completed all public improvements listed in the 2006 agreement between the developer and the city. He said the agreement states that when improvements are completed the city will accept a deed to Easy Street and also provide traffic signs. Maiyo said that according to state statute there is no public hearing required. The council unanimously passed a motion to accept Easy Street as a dedicated public right-of-way upon condition of the city receiving a quit claim deed to the street.
Waidely said Alvarez was in attendance at the Public Works Team meeting to outline state plans to work on portions of Highways 93 and 28 which are within the city limits. The projects are scheduled to take place in the Summer of 2014. Alvarez said the objective is to coordinate with the city to prevent any duplication of work and execute the job with a minimum of impact on city services or events, as well as to complete the project within its projected time frame. The city will provide the state with a schedule of all planned utility projects and civic events during that time frame.
Electrical grounding problems were discovered and reported by Rocky Mountain Electrical during upgrades on the city water plant’s lighting system. Waidely said a report from the state electrical inspector has identified the problems and corrective actions are being taken.
The Fulton Street sidewalk project has been let for bid and should commence this Spring or early Summer. Waidely also said that Dick Anderson Construction has begun work on the city’s waste water plant and that the first construction meeting between the city and Anderson was held April 10. Waidely said no major problems have been encountered or are anticipated.
The next meeting of the Public Works Team will be May 8 at 2 PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
