VI. BUSINESS TO BE CONDUCTED

A.  EPA Compliance Email: Mayor Bateman and Clerk Schmidt received a letter with a list of violations that the EPA had given the city 14 days to respond by to schedule a conference call. Clerk Schmidt will get the call scheduled for Thursday. On the call with us will be the engineer, city attorney and Representative Stevenson, members of the council are encouraged to attend. The council reviewed the letter and list of violations received. Representative Stevenson will be sharing our letter with others at the state level. 

B.  Fire Station Update: Chief Kuther will be working on the lumber inventory needed for the project. Clerk Schmidt informed the council that the contract was signed and a Notice to Proceed was issued; a building permit was revised after the initial change order and the contractor plans to start working this week. Cm. Jensen asked about match for in-kind work which is being tracked by the group. There will not be much for volunteers to do until the contractor is finished. 

C.  Arbor Day – Grant Award and Plans: Clerk Schmidt reported that she was informed that Nezperce will receive a $300.00 grant.

The city will receive a Tree City USA award sometime during the lunch hour. 

D.  Ida-Lew Letter of Commitment: Clerk Schmidt informed the council that Ida-Lew will be asking for letters of commitment annually as they apply each May for funding for the following year. Cm.

E.  Airport Grant: The paperwork required for the grant has been completed and turned in to the state aeronautics department. The city will be required to cover $25,500.00 in match while the state will pay $76,500.00. The city’s match will include crack sealing and asphalt notching. Hopefully a Heli-pad will be in our future. Discussion ensued regarding the building on the east side of the airport and when the lease will expire. Lease is expired as the renewal was never signed.  

F.  Prairie Day – Dinner and Auction: It was decided that the city will supply the meat as they have in the past. Mayor Bateman has been busy asking for donations to purchase a tent for Prairie Days. The tent will be used to keep people dry when it rains or cool when it is hot therefore a tent will be a huge asset to the community event. There was discussion regarding the placement of vendors and electricity needed. Bateman and Cardwell are working on bids for sound equipment for the Performance Stage. There has been some discussion of moving the Fireman’s challenge to a location closer to the park and adding a horse shoe tournament to the day’s events. The association is always looking for volunteers to help so Mayor Bateman joked with Cm. Nelson that he was volunteered to help with finding music for Saturday afternoon.     

VII.     DEPARTMENTAL REPORTS

            A.  Maintenance 

Water: Cardwell reported that a wiring issue has been repaired and he was warned that if this happens again the board will need to be replaced costing us some money. The amp on Well 4 is fluctuating, which is a sign that we need to start budgeting for a pump. 

Sewer: Cardwell got a sealer for the manholes at the airport and it has proven too sealed up the problem. 

Streets: Prairie Highway asked if the city is interested in splitting the cost to buy a gas powered culvert cleaner. PHD has replaced culverts that could have been cleaned and saved them the expense of replacement. Council will discuss. 

Senior Center: The roof was lifted in the last storm so an ICRMP claim has been started. We should be hearing from an adjuster soon. 

Personnel: Clairmont quit and went to work at CJ Air. We will begin advertising for the open position. 

Recycle Bins: Dave Kuther has been dropping bins off in Lewiston at Lewis & Clark, which is helping us stay on top of the recycling. Thank you Dave! 

Trees: The city is getting bids to remove trees on Pine after the big wind storm last Friday that took out several trees throughout town. 

            B.  Clerk

Clerk Schmidt informed the council of a discussion with new residents regarding their utility bill. They were invited to the meeting to discuss their questions with the council.
