NEW RESTROOMS PLANNED 8-6-14 LMS
Plans for the restrooms to be built at City Park and Town Square Park have been delivered to the city by Architect Don Stamp. His conceptual design for the buildings was previously approved by the Salmon City Council and the Urban Renewal Agency. The working plans have now been approved by City Engineer Steve Frazee.
City Councilman and Public Works Team Chairman Fred Waidely told the August 6 meeting of the City Council that electrical and plumbing designs and specifications are still needed.
The question of going through the competitive bid process was raised. It was determined that since the two rest rooms are separate projects each in the $30,000 range and the mandatory bidding process begins at $50,000, no formal competitive bidding process is required. The Town Square Park restroom is being funded by the Urban Renewal Agency and the City Park restroom will be built at the city’s expense.
The council decided that once electrical and plumbing designs are received and approved the city will place a newspaper advertisement inviting interested local contractors to review the plans and submit construction cost bids.
The City Council approved seven retail alcohol license applications. The applications were from Saveway Market, the Country Store, the Lantern Bar, Junkyard Bistro, the Hub of Salmon, Main Street Exxon and Salmon River Quick Stop.
A request to discontinue utility services at 606 Fairmont Street was also approved. The council confirmed that the sewer and water lines supplying that property have been capped.
The next meeting of the Salmon City Council is set for August 20 at 6PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
