|RECOMMENDATIONS FROM ONE TEAM TO ANOTHER|
PARKS & RECREATION BUSINESS 9-18-13 LMS
City Councilman and Parks and Recreation Team Chairman Jim Kluesner reported that the cityís Finance Team has made a recommendation as to how the power bills for the Golf Course and City Park should be divided. The bills reflect the power used to run water pumps at the two facilities and after research it has been determined a 50/50 split would be fair.
Kluesner told the September 18 meeting of the Salmon City Council that City Parks Foreman Gordon Stevenson will meet with Josh Tolman of the Golf Course Association to develop a power bill agreement.
Kluesner said that Stevenson gave the September 10 Parks and Recreation Team meeting a report on a power outage at the swimming pool. Stevenson said the problem has been repaired by Idaho Power. He also showed the team a rotted valve used in the poolís chemical system. Team member Councilman Ken Hill said the damage was caused by static electricity and that a new grounding system is in order. Kluesner said some school students were having a class at the pool at the time of the meeting so the team didnít do a walk through.
Kluesner said Parks and Recreation Team members would like the Finance Team to coordinate with Urban Renewal on the possibility of joining forces in construction of bathrooms at City Park and Cavaness Park. He said since Urban Renewal will be building the unit at Cavaness Park and the City needs to replace the City Park bathroom, there may be a cost savings if they are done at the same time.
During that eveningís Council Roundtable discussion Mayor Leo Marshall said Ken Beller of the Urban Renewal Board had addressed the Rotary Club and indicated the agency is agreeable to working with the city on the bathroom projects. The recommended process is to have the cityís Public Works Team meet with Building Inspector Gary Goodman and Public Works Supervisor Harry Shanafelt, then make a recommendation and pass it along to the Urban Renewal Board for approval. It has been determined that using the same plan for each bathroom and ordering two units instead of one will be the most cost efficient approach.
The next meeting of the Parks and Recreation Team will be October 8 at10AM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
