City Council meets
The Cottonwood City Council voted to approve a request to vacate a portion of Washington Street at their February meeting Monday, Feb. 8.
The Planning and Zoning Commission had recommended vacating all but 30 feet of the right of way but after discussion the council passed a motion to vacate all but 40 feet on centerline. This keeps open an access to what would otherwise be a landlocked piece of property but gives Nick Forsmann, who made the vacation request, more flexibility on locating the new house he intends to build.
In other business an alcohol beverage license was approved for Busdastublup. The Royale Room’s had been approved previously at a special meeting.
Shaun Riener was appointed as the council representative to Ida-Lew Economic Development.
The Water Bond final payment scheduled for Fiscal Year 2011 was approved to be paid from the bond reserve fund.
A request to use the Community Hall for Relay for Life Dance Classes was approved with no fee pending any scheduling conflicts.
The council voted to approve a resolution requesting F-35 jets be stationed at Gowen Field and Mountain Home Air Force Base. This would help keep these military bases operating in Idaho.
In reports Riener reported a leak near well #5 was located and fixed.
The next meeting of the Council will be Monday, March 8 at 7 p.m.
