PATCHES & SHEDS 10-4-17 LMS
In September the Salmon City Council began discussions with Farmerís Market representatives about finding a permanent home for the storage shed used by the organization and its vendors.
The shed is movable however permanent placement would be preferable to moving it twice a year.
Farmerís Market co-manager Jessica McAleese reported to the October 4 meeting of the council that she had spoken with a Summit Bank representative about using bank property south of the Bear statue as a home for the shed and was told the bank would prefer the building be kept on city property. That narrowed the alternatives to leaving it where it now resides, moving it to a location behind trees in Veteranís Park, going back to moving it twice a year or using a highly valued parking space on city property across from the park.
Following discussion of each idea the council offered the city property located behind a stand of trees at Veteranís Memorial Park and unanimously passed a liability related Memorandum of Understanding between the city and the Lemhi County Farmerís Market. It then passed a motion allowing the shed to be placed behind the designated trees.
Candace Burns, representing the annual Pioneer Pumpkin Patch Sale event, asked the council for permission to close one half block of Finstur Street from 3 to 6PM on October 19th. She said the 5th grade class Salmon School Garden Project will be held from 4PM to 6M and closing the street will provide safety for the youngsters and their customers during all the congestion and excitement of the sale.
Burns said that last year cars were parked in the LDS parking lot across from the event and closing the street allowed pumpkin delivery-runs to and from the cars to occur safely. She said the arrangement worked really well.
Councilman Jim Bockelman made a motion to approve the street closure request and it was passed unanimously. Burns invited all council members to attend and added there is to be a pumpkin dessert contest with entries available for sale. Mayor Marshall will be one of the judges.
