|NEW RESTROOMS UPDATE|
ROUNDTABLE TOPICS 8-19-15 LMS
The Roundtable segment of the August 19 Salmon City Council meeting included an update from Councilman Fred Waidely on construction of the new restrooms.
He said the footings have been poured for the City Park restroom, the plumbing has been installed and the site is being prepared for delivery of the building which is scheduled for the last week in September. Waidely said the old restroom in Town Square Park will be removed soon in preparation for building the new restroom there.
Councilman Jim Baker suggested a policy be put in place for inviting or not accepting comments from the public when the council is debating a topic. He said that right now there is no consistency and he would like to see a committee discuss an official procedure. Waidely suggested an Ad Hoc Committee with Jim Baker as Chair. Baker in turn commended Waidelyís procedural knowledge and Mayor Leo Marshall immediately identified the first two members of the committee as Baker and Waidely. Rob Jackson volunteered to be the third member. Waidely was named as chairman.
Councilman Ken Hill congratulated and thanked Andrews Street businessman Nick Bertram for repairing a sidewalk that was becoming a hazard and was located adjacent to Bertramís Brewery.
Jackson congratulated those who removed the weeds on the lot leading to the High School entrance. He was told the thanks go to the lotís owner Jock Slavin and some high school workers.
In response to some citizen complaints regarding delays on the Main Street Bridge due to repair work, Jackson said he called the company in charge. He said the contact was very helpful and informative and had been on-site the day before, timing the delays which were not in accordance with company standards. As a result extra flaggers were brought in which has helped. Jackson also requested the sidewalk not be closed and it was decided that sidewalk closures for needed work will be made during the night whenever possible. Jackson said this is a poor time of year to be doing the work but it is needed and he hopes the state continues to be helpful.
Councilman Russ Chinske thanked his constituents for the positive feedback he has been receiving about his comments during council meetings. He encouraged the public to keep the comments coming.
