City of Nezperce, Idaho - Regular City Council Meeting - June 13, 2017

City Minutes

                                                                                                CITY OF NEZPERCE, IDAHO
                                                                                                     REGULAR MEETING
                                                                                                           June 13, 2017 


PLACE:  Nezperce City Hall, 502 5th Ave.  


II. Pledge of Allegiance:  The pledge was led by Mayor Steve Bateman. 

III. PRESENT were Mayor Steve Bateman by conference call, Councilmen Jerry Elven, Mike Jensen, James Zenner, Tyler Nelson absent, Fire Chief Dave Kuther, Maintenance Supervisor Craig Cardwell and Clerk-Treasurer Rhonda Schmidt. Public in attendance were: Kathy Camden & Lorna Inglet, Sheriff Jason Davis, Amy Manning administrator of the III-A Program Manager, Shelley Dumas representing the ARF Foundation and Marietta and Patrick Holman representing Walco.



V.  MINUTES of the previous meetings of 5/09/17 were approved as emailed upon a motion by Cm. Elven, motion was seconded by Cm. Zenner, motion carried. 


The Clerk’s Monthly Treasurer’s Report dated June 13, 2017 was examined and approved, showing the following:           

Funds on Hand                     $269,056.25                                                                                   

All bills and payroll disbursements were examined and approved for payment upon a motion by Cm. Zenner and seconded by Cm. Jensen in the total of $142,022.61 check numbers 13459 through 13513. Receipts since the last meeting were shown as $104,693.70. The checks and stub approvals were signed appropriately by all parties as well as the Payment Approval Reports for June.


A.  ARF Foundation – Shelley Dumas: Shelley described the project since the foundations inception and what their plans are for the future. This will be a no-kill facility with spay and neuter programs funded by a building supply thrift store. As their status is non-profit they will be able to apply for all kinds of sizeable private fund grants; several fundraisers are happening. This will be a regional facility and benefit all the communities in the area therefore representation from all communities is welcome. Mayor Bateman is interested in becoming involved in the effort. 

B.   III-A Annual Report – Amy Manning:  Amy went over the Annual report for the III-A and supplied a copy of the report for the council. Amy’s report was extremely positive as the membership has grown and financially the pool is doing great. The board is looking at a 1% increase in premiums for the coming year. Amy encouraged our employees to take part in the wellness program they are offering and will be sending the clerk new employee information with the wellness program posters. 

C.   Law Enforcement Contract – Sheriff Jason Davis:  Sheriff Davis commented that he wished that he could give the positive financial report we just heard from the III-A, but instead he is asking for a 3% increase for the coming year. He informed the council that the additional funds will be used to purchase an alert system to page ems and fire over cell phones. The importance of this new system comes off the heels of the April escapee. He added that the sheriff’s office will pay for the install and tech support but each city will be required to pay a fee per cell phone on the system. Davis positively added that E911 is functional and Lewis County houses the backup system, so the SO has saved money by doing this. Following conversation Cm. Zenner moved to accept the contracts 3% increase, Cm. Jensen seconded the motion, motion carried. 

D.  Walco- Proposed Sanitation Increase: Patrick & Marietta Holman are asking for an increase in services just under 5% amounting to 88 cents a tote. This will help them with rising fuel costs, health insurance premiums and employee wages. They have not been to the city since 2012 so a small increase will help sustain them. Cm. Zenner moved to accept the proposed increase, motion seconded by Cm. Jensen, motion carried. 

E.   Airport Follow-up: Discussion ensued regarding the city’s offer to Doggett which he declined. There is a rumor that he found another buyer. Cardwell contacted Herco regarding getting on their summer schedule. The scheduled project needs to be completed in July. The clerk will email Bill Statham to confirm a July date. 

F.   EPA Compliance Follow Up: City attorney Herrington is in regular contact with the EPA; while engineer Amy Uptmor is working with Herrington and the city to work out a doable plan. Herrington reported that they want to issue a compliance order with a project in 2020 thus giving us 3 years to create a project, apply for funding and complete a project. There should be another conference call with the EPA in the coming weeks. On a good note we only had one violation in May. 

G.   Fire Station Update: Project is going well. The lumber has been delivered and Cardwell is working with them regarding services and hook-ups. In the last week the project has had visits from Howard Lunderstat and John Lynn from USDA and Megan Ronk who is the Director of the Idaho Department of Commerce. 

H.   Museum Floor: Clerk Schmidt talked to the council regarding the groundwater seeping into the museum basement and the damage done to the steps and floor. The south wall of the building needs to be sealed up and the ground regraded away from the building. Cardwell will take a closer look at what needs to be done and his calendar to get this completed. The work done a few years ago has proven successful. 


            A.  Maintenance

Sewer: Cardwell discussed the need to fix the manhole on Cedar between Fourth and Fifth Avenues. He plans to put together plans to monitor the flow in the manholes so that he can see what happens when we have a weather event. Discharging will continue through June. 

Water Meters: Meters were read for the first time in 7 months and 3 readings were very questionable as to whether there is a leak or not. It will be evident if there is a problem when we read in June. There was a little mishap during an excavation project but was quickly caught and repaired. 

Streets: Cardwell stated that he has some chips for seal coating, but the decision was to buy chips this year and seal coat next year. Clerk Schmidt will discuss this further with Mayor Bateman and Cardwell so that she can inform Joe Forsmann. 

Parks: Mowing is caught up and lots of weed spraying done. 

Senior Center: Cardwell talked with the contractor repairing the senior center roof. He is ok to proceed. 

Personnel: Things are going well with the newly hired employee Cardwell was happy to report. There are some classes coming up for water and sewer licenses. Cardwell informed the council that IBOL has made some changes to licenses that will be positive. 

Bandshell: Cardwell presented the invoice for the sound system in the bandshell. Following discussion Cm. Zenner moved to do a 50/50 split with the Prairie Day Association, Cm. Elven seconded the motion, motion carried. The city half will be $646.25. 

            B.  Clerk

Clerk Schmidt had some paperwork from the bank for councilmen to sign. She informed the council that we should be able to take credit card payments in June. The compressor at the library is out and if it is no longer on warranty will cost approximately $5,000 to replace. The transportation plan should be just about wrapped up as the engineers are putting the roads and information into the Iworqs website as required by the grant. EPA has updated their website for DMR’s so will be learning another website this month. Clerk Schmidt spent some time with the Commerce Director Megan Ronk while she was in Nezperce. She was able to see first hand the block grant projects we have received: Library/community room, Oak Street and the fire station. She even got a look at the RV Park which was a Dept. of Parks and Rec grant and had a tour at Hillco. Megan was site visiting communities in Lewis and Idaho Counties with Jessaca Austad of Ida-Lew. 

            C.  Fire Department

Chief Kuther discussed flushing lines in September with Cardwell and the council.                                               

IX.       COUNCIL COMMENT           


Local Garden Club members Kathy Camden and Lorna Inglet met with the council to discuss a flag pole fundraiser project the club has begun working on. They asked the council about the installation of a flag pole in Memorial Park. Kathy has researched poles and is willing to run a raffle to raise the money to purchase the pole. She is also donating a painting to the raffle winner. Tickets will be available at the library. The council discussed locations for the pole and agreed to the project. The maintenance department will assist with setting the pole.

XI.       ADJOURNMENT adjourned at 8PM 

Other/Upcoming Events:

Holiday – Tuesday, July 4th

Prairie Days: Theme – Glow in the Park – July 7 & 8
