CITY BUSINESS 4-2-14 LMS
The Salmon City Council took official action April 2 on a Public Safety Team recommendation concerning traffic congestion on Water Street.
The block of Water Street between Main and VanDreff is where the bus for the Upper Carmen Charter School picks up and delivers students. Safety concerns over the twice a day concentration of traffic in that block prompted the Public Safety Team to look at possible alternatives.
The recommendation voted into action at the council meeting is that the east side of Water Street, in that one block area, be made a no parking zone. The loading zone for the school bus will be on the west side of the street near VanDreff Street and there will be marked crosswalks in that area.
The council felt that since there is now a parking lot to the east of Water Street, parking along one side of the street will not be missed. The vote to approve the changes was unanimous.
Finding one date when all six councilmen, the mayor and the City Planner can meet does present some challenges and for that reason the dates of upcoming workshops have been changed.
The workshop to discuss the Dispatch-emergency services issue has been moved to April 30 and the workshop to review changes to the city Development Code will take place on April 29. Both workshops will be held in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room and will begin at 5:30 PM.
This year’s parade during the annual Father’s Day Car Show will occur on June 14. The City Council approved the parade request made by Brian Rogers of the Salmon River Spokes and Chrome organization. This will be the Car Show’s 30th year.
A tentative date of May 17th has been set for an official public open house and ribbon cutting ceremony at the city’s newly upgraded Wastewater Treatment facility. The council discussed possibly including tours of the city water system plant at the same time or at some time in the future.
City Clerk Mary Benton asked council members to please review a draft ordinance that would amend sections of the City Code and to study proposed resolutions regarding fee structures. An official public hearing will be held regarding the changes during the May 7 regular meeting of the City Council.
