|COUNCIL ACCEPTS LOT APPOINTMENTS|
APPOINTMENTS AND APPROVALS 12-18-13 LMS
The Salmon City Council approved recommended appointments to the Local Option Tax (LOT) Commission during its December 18 meeting.
Eric Bender was named to replace Chuck Bender, Robin Watkins will replace Bebe Dodds, Mary Cerise will replace Charlie Cockrell, Barbara Soper will replace Marilyn Nutt, Lin Gray will replace Judy Barkley and Rob Jackson will replace Jim Kluesner. The terms of each will be in keeping with the scheduled term of the person they are replacing. The appointments fulfill the LOT Board membership requirement of five people from businesses affected by the tourist industry and four people from the city staff or council.
The council approved a $981,951.35 application of payment to Dick Anderson Construction, Inc. Anderson is the contractor for the Salmon Waste Water Treatment System upgrades that are in progress.
The council also approved, contingent on final approval by the Public Works Superintendent, a utilities disconnect at 1511 Mary Street. The house at that address is owned by School District 291 which is the source of the disconnect request.
The council spent time reviewing a draft agreement with the Lemhi County Humane Society. The pinpointed clause of discussion referred to feral cats. Language regarding wild felines was changed to read, “Appointees of the Humane Society shall be responsible for capturing and transporting feral cats. When funds are available, feral cats will be transported to a qualified veterinarian for spay or neuter if a home is available or euthanasia if no home is available. Final disposition of feral cats shall be the responsibility of the Society.”
It was also decided that an annual agreement should be completed by the 15th of May each year instead of June. The draft document with council amendments will be returned to the Humane Society for approval and/or comments and then brought back before the council for a vote.
