CONCEPTS AND COMMENTS 6-4-14 LMS
At the June 4 meeting of the Salmon City Council, Architect Don Stamp of Carmen presented his design concept for restrooms to be built in the Town Square Park, by the Urban Renewal Agency, and at City Park by way of city funding.
Stamp estimates the concrete form buildings could be constructed for about $30,000 each compared to pre-fabricated models which each sell for from $50 to $60,000.
His design concept features an attractive western rustic look with covered entrance and waiting areas. Both buildings will be constructed to accept heating units. Present plans call for the restroom in Town Square Park to be heated in the Winter. For the time being the restroom in City Park will not be open year around.
The Council decided to send the concept to its Public Works Team. Council President Jim Baker is the city’s liaison with the Urban Renewal Agency and he will deliver the design to its board members.
Councilman Jim Bockelman expressed dismay over lawn conditions at the cemetery on Memorial Day weekend. He presented council members with photos that showed the pervasive and abundant growth of Dandelion stems standing high above the lawn grass throughout the facility. He said he felt that given the importance of the holiday more effort should have been made to assure a pleasant appearance.
He said if it is a matter of the council helping in some way, that is what should be done.
Mayor Leo Marshall said he has spoken with city crews. He said more mowing and watering is already underway and lawn conditions have improved.
A special ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the city’s upgraded Wastewater Treat Plant on June 12 at 2 PM. Tours of the plant will be available and the public is invited. The Wastewater Treatment Plant is located at 43 Lemhi Hole Road.
The mayor made a special presentation to the City Council. Marshall is this district’s Eagle Scout Chairman and in that capacity he asks Boy Scout participants if they know the Scout law. The correct answer is, “The Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.” Marshall said he tells the scouts that when they go out in the world those attributes should apply to whatever they choose to do.
The mayor then gave the council a large plaque containing a print of the Scout Law. To that he had attached a list of careers to which the Scout Law applies. Included on the list are; councilmen, mayor, clerk, treasurer, planner, lawyer, policemen, superintendent, supervisor, mechanic and equipment operator. He said the Scout Law plaque will be hung somewhere in City Hall, just as a good reminder to everyone.
