ROUNDTABLE 2-1-17 LMS
This winterís mystery, snow-plowing Good Samaritan was identified during the Salmon City Council Roundtable on February 1st.
Councilman Neal James revealed the identity of the white bearded, green hatted man who has been busy plowing sidewalks. He said it is Willard Davis. The council has been praising the volunteer work for weeks and now knows who to thank personally.
Councilman Jim Baker delivered an update on the downtown sidewalk project scheduled for this Spring. He said the project specifications have been signed and forwarded to Keller and Associates which sent the packet of information to the Idaho Transportation Department. Once approved by the department the project will be advertised for bids. Baker said City Finance Director Amy Fealko is coordinating the project.
Speaking of sidewalks, Councilman Rob Jackson said there are some snow removal problems which need to be addressed along a portion of Main Street. He said some people have cleared parking lots and not sidewalks, some have not plowed at all and some have piled snow next to stop light poles so that pedestrians have to climb up the snow bank in order to push the button for the light. Jackson said that makes it a public safety issue. The topic has been placed on the councilís February 15th meeting agenda.
Councilman Jim Bockelman commented that it has been a stellar year for the Public Works crews. He said he has had phone calls of praise and of dismay. Bockelman complimented the work performed on a frozen water line and asked the council teams to look into whether the city crews are getting the support and equipment they need to provide services, and do a better job if a better job needs to be done. He also mentioned the recent Hockey Tournaments that are proving to be so beneficial for the community.
Councilman Russ Chinske offered congratulations to the High School Seniors for completing their Senior Projects. He also gave a Ďshout-outí to the girlís Hockey Team for having such an outstanding season. He said itís a great success story.
Mayor Leo Marshall relayed an invitation to all to attend the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the new Steele Memorial Medical Office Building. The ceremony is scheduled for 5PM on Thursday, February 9th. There will be an Open House from 4PM to 7PM.
