INVITATION EXTENDED 3-4-15 LMS
Lemhi County Economic Development Executive Director Tammy Stringham and new Transportation Manager Candice Forshay invited the Salmon City Council to attend a Mobility Visioning Workshop scheduled for Thursday, March 12 from 11:30 to 2:30. They explained the presence of a Community Transportation Association of American (CTAA) team saying it is coming from Washington D.C. as part of a Technical Assistance Grant awarded to LCEDA in connection with its new role of providing local transportation.
The CTAA will help prepare for the April 1 changeover of transportation services from the Targhee Regional Public Transportation Authority (TRPTA) to Lemhi Ride. One purpose of the workshop is to identify where immediate local transportation needs exist and how to prepare for future needs. Councilman Fred Waidely is the city’s representative on the Lemhi Ride Board of Directors he said he’d be happy to attend the workshop.
At the City Council’s March 4 meeting two future meetings were set. A work session on the topic of the Library Building was scheduled for March 10 at 6PM and a public hearing for the fiscal year 2016 budget was set for July 15 at 6:15 PM as part of that evening’s City Council meeting.
City Financial Director Amy Fealko explained the city’s need for a Bond Counsel. She said the reason behind the need is the Waste Water Treatment Plant loan money which is being funneled from various sources through the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality. She said when she sends in a final reimbursement request for the upgrades the question of bond counsel representation will be asked. Fealko said Stephanie Bonney of Moore, Smith, Buxton and Turcke Chartered has been highly recommended. She said the service is expensive but is part of the price of the loan. Bonney has agreed that if accepted she will make a personal presentation regarding the required bond ordinance and answer any questions the council may wish to ask. The council voted unanimously to approve preparation of a Bond Counsel Services Contract. The vote was only to approve the writing of a contract and has nothing to do with the yet to be explained ordinance itself.
