City Council meets
Cottonwood City Councilman Shaun Riener tendered his resignation at the April meeting of the council Monday, April 11, but no action was taken on accepting his resignation.
Apparently job conflicts won’t allow him to continue.
In other business the contract with Walco was renewed for 2 years.
The Budget Hearing date was set for Sept. 6, 2011 at 7 p.m.
A waiver of fees was approved for Relay for Life for the Community Hall for their benefit dinner.
A waiver of fees for the cabana for a 4-H club’s use was declined.
A catering permit for the St. Mary’s Hospital Dinner-Dance was approved.
There was discussion on Idaho Transportation Department’s proposal for an additional light at the north entrance to town. Apparently once such a light is installed the electric costs go to the local taxing entity. There was some question as to whether this light would be within the city limits. If not the council felt the costs should not be the city’s responsibility.
In the reports there were 2.34 million gallons of water pumped with 1.96 million sold for a loss of 16%. A small leak was found and fixed on East Street.
Ron Grant reported that the sewer department is working on cleaning out the lines and culverts.
Jack Duman reported that the street department is working with the West Camas Transportation group on mag chloride purchase, sealcoating options and possibly purchasing a roller for chip sealing. They are also continuing to work on drainage issues.
Shelli Schumacher reported the new front doors for the Community Hall have been ordered.
The council adjourned to an executive session.
The next regular meeting will be Monday, May 9 at 7 p.m.
