MAIN STREET WILL BE IN BLOOM 4-16-14 LMS
Thanks to Carla Evans of the Bear Country Inn, hanging baskets of flowers will be decorating Salmon’s Main Street this Summer.
She asked the Salmon City Council for permission to take on the project and to have the use of the city’s watering wagon. Evans will furnish the flowers and planting and a group of Senior Citizen volunteers will be taking care of the daily watering duties. Evans will also coordinate the actual hanging of the hundred pound baskets.
The council approved her generous offer and request.
Jason Bruce, President of the Lemhi Baseball League, told the April 16 meeting of the council that Idaho Power has approached the league with grant possibilities for funding installation of a power line to the T-ball field. He explained the field near the golf course is used for batting practice and has for years used a generator to power a pitching machine. He said the minimal power bills would be paid by the league so there would be no cost to the city and that the lines could be run in the easement already used by Idaho Power. An underground line would be run into the field where the pitching machine is located.
The council moved to authorize a written agreement with the league that states the arrangement and to put the agreement in place in a week to ten days.
After much discussion about past history and the city’s inability to supply water to John little’s Fulton Street property the council came to the conclusion that his de-annexation request is appropriate. A motion was made by Council President Jim Baker to hold a public hearing on the de-annexation request and a relinquishment of right-of-way along the back of the property. Councilman Fred Waidely amended the motion to include that the expense of required hearing advertisements, notifications to area residents and changes to city maps will be paid by Little. The unanimous vote starts the process towards the hearing.
The council also approved a formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the city and the Idaho Department of Labor. The MOU is related to the Work Investment Act. Under the act the Department of Labor program offers work experience to interested young people and will be providing a free of charge, youthful work force this Summer for the Sacajawea Interpretive Center. The council unanimously accepted the MOU.
