Council passes resolutions
The Cottonwood City Council met Tuesday, Oct. 10 and passed a couple of resolutions.
They passed a resolution dealing with the Main St. lighting project which outlines the state highway departmentís responsibilities in installing the new lights and the cityís responsibilities after the project is finished.
They also passed a new banking resolution because they have a new council president. The council president, Jack Duman, is one of the two people who can co-sign checks with the city clerk. The other is mayor Denis Duman. Jack Duman was elected as council president to replace Max Nuxoll who resigned from the council once he moved out of town.
A proposed sidewalk ordinance was tabled for more research as the sample ones they received from Grangeville and Lewiston appear a little more stringent that what the council was looking for.
Kayla Blankenship of the YWCA appeared before the council. She is looking for a space where she could meet with clientele as part of the YWCAís outreach program. She would be looking at every other Wednesday.
Jay Hinterlong reported the city has been fixing water leaks as they find them. On First Street South, next to the Post Office, they patched the line in 3 places and when a fourth leak popped up they decided to just go ahead and use some of the water departmentís dedicated repair funds to put in a new line.
In the sewer report the only item of note is that they have stopped spraying in the agriforest next year, per their permit.
A request was made by the Historical Museum of St. Gertrude for use of the Hall. They will have a traveling Smithsonian Exhibit at the Museum and want to use the Community Hall for some related events. The council decided to give them the hall at a reduced rental rate.
The next meeting of the council is set for Monday, November 13, at 7 p.m.
