City Council meets
The Cottonwood City Council met in a special meeting Wednesday, Nov. 14 after not having a quorum for their regular November meeting on Monday, Nov. 12.
The council updated their liquor sale by the drink on election day code to match the state code. In 2008 state code had been amended to allow such sales which had been prohibited prior to that.
The council also approved transfer of the alcohol beverage license for the Country Haus to new owner Rodney Quick.
The outside burning ordinance and burn permits discussion continued with the council finalizing what they want. It has been turned over to city attorney Joe Wright to draw up the new ordinance.
The former Cottonwood Housing Area now Ironwood LLC was discussed between the council and Steve Lamont as to what needs to be done before the city would annex that area and provide water and sewer service.
Bids were opened for a new police vehicle from Gilbert Auto in Moscow, Hanson Garage in Orofino, Gortsema Motors in Grangeville and Joe Hall Ford in Lewiston. Hanson Garage was the apparent low bidder but a decision was postponed until bid specification details could be obtained. Mayor Denis Duman and Police Chief Terry Cochran will review them.
In other business the council approved a 5% pay raise for the two part-time police department employees.
The next regular meeting of the council is set for Monday, December 10 at 7 p.m.
