City Council meets
The Cottonwood City Council held their regular February meeting Monday, Feb. 11.
There was a lot of discussion held but few actions taken.
One action that was taken was to accept the bids submitted for the surplus property.
John Mager presented a request to make a sidewalk cut for stormwater drainage. After discussion the council suggested he check into other options first.
In the water report there was a 24% loss this past month but much of that can be attributed to the huge leak at the corner of East and Foster that was fixed with community help as reported a couple weeks ago in Notes from City Hall.
Ron Grant reported they received the annual report on the land application at the agriforest from the Idaho Division of Environmental Quality. He reported he and Roy Uhlenkott are also looking into replacement trees.
In the fire department report Grant noted that several firemen attended training in Orofino.
The water and sewer service for the former Cottonwood housing area, now Ironwood, was discussed but no action was taken.
The Idaho County Recycling Agreement was discussed. City Attorney Joe Wright had some comments on it that were also discussed. He will be working with Kirk MacGregor to finalize it.
Building inspector Steve Meshishnek has asked that his contract be terminated. The city will be looking for a new building inspector.
The new police pickup should be ready by the end of the month and the new maintenance pickup has been ordered.
In other business the council talked about the railroad ties. Police Chief Terry Cochran said it appears there has been some activity there.
The next regular meeting of the council will be Monday, March 11 at 7 p.m.
