THANKS TO DAN 9-17-14 LMS
The September 17 meeting of the Salmon City Council was the last one Dan Maiyo would be officially attending as City Planner, City Planning and Zoning Administrator and City Code Compliance Officer.
Council members each passed along best wishes and thanks for Maiyo’s eight and a half years of service to the community. Council President Jim Baker commended Maiyo for always being out in front of controversial issues and taking the hard knocks. He thanked him for his professionalism. Councilman Fred Waidely said Maiyo has been a tremendous asset to the city and that he has learned a lot from him. Waidely said he appreciates Maiyo’s always being willing to help him and paying full attention to his requests. Councilman Rob Jackson thanked Maiyo for his help throughout Jackson’s time on the Planning and Zoning Commission and on to the City Council position. Councilmen Ken Hill and Jim Bockelman added their thanks and Councilman Russ Chinski summed it up by saying, “Thanks Dan. See ya’”
Maiyo plans to remain in Salmon and will be making himself available for any consulting needs the city may have.
In his farewell remarks Maiyo thanked everyone on the city staff and council along with county officials and he thanked the public for supporting and trusting him. He said that trust gave him the ability to continue the position effectively, “Without your support that would have been impossible.”
Maiyo predicted the city will be facing many challenges in the next 20 years and said the future of the community depends and demands fresh faces and fresh ideas. He advised city officials to lead by example, be kind, pay attention to detail, know the rules and don’t ruin a good apology with an excuse.
He defined his time with the city as a wonderful and rewarding experience. Maiyo’s job tenure with the city officially ends on September 30.
