Salmon City Councilman Fred Waidely chairs two City Council teams and reported on their recent meetings at the May 20 meeting of the City Council.

At the Public Works Team meeting the team was asked if the city could do anything about the amount of dust from a two block long unpaved road near Baker Street. Waidely said that City Public Works Supervisor Harry Shanafelt replied that the city has some millings from the Main Street paving project which could be used on the road for now and later this Summer that area will be chip sealed.

A few weeks ago the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) shut down the crosswalk at the west end of the Main Street Bridge due to there being no cut for curb access or walkway on the Stage Coach Inn side of the street. Waidely said that Community Project Coordinator Mary Cerise has been negotiating with the Inn over putting in an Americans with Disabilities Act curb cut and an improved pathway. The final plan will have to be approved by ITD before any work is done.

A proposed ordinance regarding snow removal was discussed. Since there are several revisions to be made it will be given to Cerise for a rewrite before being returned to the team for its recommendation to the council.

Waidely said that during the Sacajawea Team meeting, Sacajawea Center Director Lin Gray reported two different school groups from Hailey, Idaho are scheduled to spend two nights at the Outdoor School this month for the Village Life programs. Local youngsters from the Pioneer Elementary School 4th grade will be visiting the Outdoor School the week of May 18 for the Village Life programs and that the Pioneer Elementary School 5th graders will be at the Outdoor School on May 26 for Pioneer Day. Waidely said they will all be learning about the fur trade and life as mountain men along with learning about the area’s natural history from local professionals.

He said Sacajawea Center Summer programming registration is now open. Program offerings may be checked at the web site. Registration can be done by calling the Sacajawea Center office at 756-1188.

Outdoor School and Junior Explorer participants can register the day of the program but should check with the Center on space availability. Waidely said Kids Garden participants must pre-register as this program fills up quickly.

He also said Gray presented the team with a 2015-16 fiscal year budget and that all of her proposals for the center looked reasonable to the team.

The next meetings of the Sacajawea Center and Public Works teams will be on June 8.
