The grader is ready for work. Mayor Davies suggested getting a 50-gallon drum for storing hydraulic fluid since the grader uses quite a bit. Councilman Wells offered to donate a drum with pump.
Three certificates will get mailed out today.
$10,000 Grant was approved. Work needs to be completed within 3 years. Phoebe discussed another option but it might not work with the current scenario. The $10,000 is a matching grant. Discussed getting signatures updated on the bank account.
Mayor Davies has been in contact with Idaho Power. Paris Dickerson is the new representative for our area. Next week Idaho Power will be up to discuss where to put the Porter Creek Line. The installed line will be under the ground. Idaho Power will try to avoid digging up the pavement. They are looking to start in 2021. Councilman Wells discussed the installation of the powerlines on Standifer and how that might affect the nearby irrigation lines.
The city hall water pump has an issue that needs repaired. It turns on every 2.06 seconds. Mayor Davies will call someone to look at it.
Councilman Butters discussed a medical issue that happened about a month ago. There were some issues with the scenario. PVFD has decided to now tone themselves out so response time can be quicker. There was also an issue with the helicopter and not being able to land at the T. The airstrip will be plowed out so helicopters have another option for landing.
Judy Chesnut would like to thank everyone for their volunteer time and effort. She read a portion of her Christmas letter about Mike Mitchell and his life. She asked about the museum and the snow. She also asked about the response to the medical emergency and the changes that have been made since.
