SNOW REMOVAL PROBLEMS 2-18-15 LMS
The problem is, when snow is removed from parking lots and private properties some of it is being piled onto sidewalks and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) areas.
Councilman Fred Waidely is Chairman of the city’s Public Works team which met on February 11 and talked about the snow piles. Waidely told the February 18 meeting of the Salmon City Council that the city will notify property owners and snow removal personnel that this can not and will not be tolerated. He said if the snow pile situation is not corrected the city will remove the obstructing mounds of snow and send a snow removal bill to the responsible property owner or business.
Waidely informed the council Community Development Coordinator Mary Cerise has been notified that the street and sidewalk project for the down town area is scheduled to begin in early April and be completed by the end of June. He also said a Request For Proposals on the restroom construction at Town Square and City Park will be advertised at the end of February with a bid opening set for March 12. Project completion date is June 10.
The Public Works Team also discussed the fees charged for septic dump services at the Waste Water Treatment Plant and decided they may need to be revised in order to reflect city processing expenses and the equity bond payments.
The next meeting of the Public Works Team will be March 11 at 2PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room. All team meetings are open to the public.
