|NEW FEE POLICY|
ADMISSION FEES 6-21-17 LMS
The way entrance fees are charged for the Sacajawea Center and its Interpretive Center will be changed thanks to the Salmon City Council granting a request by the Centerís Director, Lin Gray.
From now on people renting the Learning Center will no longer have to pay an admission fee to tour the Interpretive Center and, when an admission fee is being charged for an event the Center is hosting, there will be no additional fee to visit the Interpretive Center. Gray said that way the public will not be having to pay twice.
At its June 21 meeting the council said all city scheduled fees for fiscal year 2018 will be discussed and updated in early July however; due to the Centerís upcoming Preparedness Fair and Augustís Heritage Days, permission was unanimously given by the council for the Interpretive Center fees, as described, to be waived. It was emphasized the waiver applies to admission fees, not facility rental fees. Councilman Jim Bockelman asked for the proposed changes to be presented in writing. Fees for city facilities are set by Resolution and the fee schedule will be presented for public review before being formally set in place.
The City Council unanimously and officially approved the annual agreement between the City of Salmon and the Salmon Valley Golf Association.
In April Lemhi County sent a letter to the city requesting the city to increase the amount it is currently paying for county Dispatch Services. A draft letter of response was written by the city and reviewed by the council on June 21. Councilman Russ Chinske thought the letter with its point by point specifics of what the city contributes to county residents was an invitation for unnecessary argument. He suggested the reply should simply state the city feels it is paying a fair share of the Dispatch costs. The rest of the council agreed with Chinske and ordered the letter to be rewritten and sent on to the county.
