City Council meets
The Cottonwood City Council held a very short meeting Monday, Dec. 10.
Jay Hinterlong reported there were only a couple of minor water leaks this past month and both were fixed.
Jack Duman reported he went to the road district convention and picked up a couple of ideas on de-icing streets. He also reported that the de-icing service they used had a bit of a problem last Friday evening. The company has a new owner and he didnít have the settings right on his applicator and put down a lot more chemical than he wanted. Thatís why Front Street appeared so wet to those coming back into town from the basketball game.
Shelli Schumacher reported the University of Idaho students that studied the Community Hall are to have a presentation on their ideas this Wednesday at the university.
In his report on IdaLew, Hinterlong said that Ken Roberts and Lee Heinrich were at the last meeting seeking input on issues to bring forward at the upcoming legislative session.
Hinterlong reported most of the discussion at the meeting concerned vocational education and one of the things being looked at is re-starting a wood shop program at Prairie Middle School.
Mayor Denis Duman asked what issues were brought up to the legislators and Hinterlong reported that money for vocational education programs and pulling groceries from the sales tax were the main issues brought up.
A resolution was read and passed by the council concerning records retention. This is something that is required by state statute. It deals with which records are considered permanent and how long to keep other records before they can be destroyed.
The council adjourned at 7:18 p.m.
The next regular meeting will be Monday, January 14 at 7 p.m. At that time the council members will be sworn in to their new terms and Mayor Duman said he hopes to have a nominee for the position being vacated by Jim Steinke.
