FIXING THINGS 11-1-17 LMS
As per request Licensed Architect Don Stamp of Tower Creek has submitted a professional fee proposal and Scope of Service for the remodeling necessary to construct lines of delineation between the old Library Building and City Hall.
In the proposal considered by the Salmon City Council at its November 1st meeting Stamp said he had done a walk-through of the building and that according to Building Inspector Gary Goodman a “4 Hour” fire wall separation will be required in one adjacent opening.
Stamp’s professional fee proposal of $3,800 was accepted unanimously by the City Council contingent on clearing up a $50 discrepancy in the total.
Councilman Jim Bockelman urged the city staff to have Stamp also consider and make recommendations on the City Hall building’s outside needs.
Bockelman went on to say he has been taking upstream and downstream photos of the new bridge. He presented the pictures which show some erosion problems are occurring on the upstream side of the bridge. City Public Works Supervisor Harry Shanafelt said that in fact there are five places along the island that have been identified as needing rip rap. He is working on a joint permit which involves the Idaho Department of Water Resources and the Army Corps of Engineers. He said once the Corps evaluates the problems it will send the paperwork on to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the US Coast Guard. When the permit is approved the city crews will acquire the rock material and proceed with the needed rip rap work.
