Page 12 Highway Bypass Continued from front page the area until that plant growth is established. After that, the area should be self-sustainlng. The discussion brought up the subject of who decides the speed limits on the highway, specifically how it was decided to change the limits at the north end of town from 45 mph to 25 mph. The Idaho Dept. of Transportation makes the decisions, and in this case, it was at the request of the city. The city had requested graduated increases in the speed limits on both ends of town, and ITD determined where, and in what increments, those speed limit changes would occur. Cambridge Telephone Company has requested a small addition to the lot they lease from the city, on which their cell phone tower sits. The additional space would be for the construction of an additional building. The council will consider how much area this will add to the leased ground and determine an appropriate increase in the lease payment. Public Works Supervisor, David Wilson said the city is about out of gravel, and demand for it has increased recently. The council advised temporarily trading with the county for gravel until a favorable opportunity to purchase a larger supply can be found. City Clerk Tami Testa announced that Bruce Addington has deeded his one-half interested in the two steam-powered tractors (that sit in the town square park) to the City of Council. Since the city already owned a half interest, the tractors are now completely owned by the City, The Department of Housing and Urban Development has offered to sell the city another house in town (on Brady St.) for one dollar. Gene Foster was familiar with the house and described its dilapidated condition. The council decided one such house that it has already purchased for a dollar, and still hasn't been able to sell, is enough, and will decline the offer. Chamber of Commerce Gene Foster appeared before the council with a statement from the Council Chamber of Commerce. His statement: I am here as a representative of the Council Chamber of Commerce. The chamber has recently held elections, and the new officers are Lyle Sail, President; myself as Vice President, and Penny Fisk as Treasurer. The secretary position is still open. The chamber has hired Holly Williams as Events Coordinator for the year. The New officers are looking forward to a closer and more coordinated relationship .with the City Council. Our new Chamber President has established 3 Goals for the year. These being: To Grow local businesses, to support local families and to encourage visitors to the area. The first Chamber event will be the annual Chamber Awards Dinner on April 18th at which local citizens will be recognized for their contributions to the community. This is also a fund raising event with the proceeds going into the 4th of July fireworks. The Chamber Requests that you support this event and that the City Council Continue their support of the fireworks display. A small increase in support would be appreciated due to the increased fireworks cost. The Chamber plans on the continued operation of the visitor's center. Staffing may be a problem but we are optimistic that a solution will be found. One of the Chambers concerns is the Chamber's and the City's Web site. We would to enter into a lalg' iwltt the city as'ito the :: possibility of eorabiiJing and enhancing the sites. R is also desirable to update them on a regular basis. The Chamber requests your permission and support of the ihstallation of a ris/mas Tree Stand in the park. The current procedure of tying it to tii'flagpole is unsatisfactory. If we a pot like to stand. 'envision a 12- ground 4 feet into which tree trunk be slid and wedged upright. When not in use a safety cap would be fitted over the pipe. We would solicit donated material and volunteer labor. End of statement. The council expressed general support of the Chamber's efforts. and said they will look into the idea to create a-, combined web site. 2012 The Adams r Record, NO REBATE Samsung Repp TM *plan required LG Exchange TM *plan raQLIIFQ " -,.  k.J kJ;./i ,4 " / V--J * No Credit Check * No Deposit tttet" w00reless *ALl.
