Clean-up, abandoned vehicle topics for Pine Bluffs Town Council


September 14, 2017

The September 6th Pine Bluffs towncouncil meeting was opened at 7:00 p.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by approval of consent agenda; including review and approval of minutes from the August 21, 2017 regular meeting and the consideration of claims and payroll.

New business/action item included the second reading of Ordinance 2017-05, and Ordinance amending Chapter 2 and Chapter 7 of the Code of Ordinances of the Town of Pine Bluffs Wyoming, establishing the nuisance complaint board, and providing for an effective date. Questions were posed on what would be considered a nuisance height wise, who would be doing the monitoring; as well as clean up. In the past it has been a group effort between the Town Hall, Police Department, and Public Works Department. Concerns were voiced regarding the town man power with the Public Works Department to be doing the clean-up. Suggestions were made to do the clean-up, if needed, for a resident and sending a bill for the clean-up to owner of property. However this ordinance goes beyond weed control it also includes abandon vehicles. Next meeting on September 18, 20017 council will doing the third reading on this ordinance.

The Pine Bluffs Lions Club presented the council with a gift of appreciation for all the coop-orations and assistance on pass projects. The Lions Club was asking if it they could still do a tree planting ceremony. It was suggested that they wait until the grass goes dominate on the museum grounds and plant there or wait until early next spring.

It was proposed for a September 25, 2017 Town Clean Up; with work being done in house. Discussion was on allowing yard waste during the clean up or continuing to encourage the residents taking it to the burn pile north of town.

Three travel request were made one for Jerry to attend Wampa Lineman School; travel would be the only cost for this request. The other two were for Sonya and Heather to attend the WKPA conference and training in Cody Wyoming; cost for motel, meal, gas, and program. All three travel request were approved by Council.

Also on the agenda was replacing the Airport Fueling Service Card Reader. The reader has been failing for awhile and the cost to replace it would be $11,740.00; which includes the annual service subscription of $945.00, that is paid anyway every year. It was discussed taking it our of the 911 enhancement fund that is not being used. The motion was approved.
