The city of Salmon has adopted a Memorandum of Understanding between the city and County Planning and Zoning Administrator Gary Goodman for Goodman to handle the city’s Planning and Zoning services. The council voted unanimously to approve the yearly $10,000 agreement.
The City Council then approved Resolution 2014-7 which accepts terms of the agreement. The agreement includes enforcement of Building Codes within the city boundaries. The Lemhi County Commissioners will review the agreement at their November 24 meeting.
The council also approved by resolution the new Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural and Educational Center Mission Statement. The Mission Statement has been reviewed and approved by all center partners.
The CHC Foundation has granted $12,000 towards resurfacing the city tennis and basketball courts. The total cost of the project is estimated at $24,000. The council approved $5,000 in matching funds. The money will be taken from the city’s Contingency Fund. City Grants coordinator Mary Cerise said she is planning on making a request to the Local Option Tax (LOT) Commission for additional funds under its recreational opportunities designation.
Two new members were appointed by the City Council to the LOT Commission due to vacancies on the board. The new members are Cathy Cranney and Julie Barbarick.
The Salmon Library Association, represented by Ramona Combs Stauffer, officially notified the city, as per right-of-first refusal agreement, that the Library Building has been commercially appraised at $286,000 and is for sale. Stauffer said the Library Board is willing to take less than the appraised valuation. The city has six months to consider the offer. Councilman Ken Hill is on a library committee which has reviewed the advisability of the city purchasing the library building and he said no official decision has been reached as yet.
The next meeting of the Salmon City Council will be December 3 at 6PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
