KEMMERER — On Monday, April 23, the Kemmerer City Council voted to pass on third reading Ordinance 2012-824. The approval of ordinance 2012-824 sets up three wards within the city.
The council also voted down the proposed ordinance 2012-825.
A brief description of this item reads, “The City Council directed staff in conjunction with the property owner’s attorney to develop a ordinance allowing for the nine residential parcels in the KD Parcels Subdivision.”
By striking down this ordinance, the council kept KD Parcels one through nine inside the city limits.
The third item under new business was the city’s contract with the little league organization regarding its use of the ball parks on Highway 189.
Under the terms of this new contract, the little league would be responsible for providing insurance for content, vandalism and liability. They are also responsible to pay for utilities at the close of the season, and keep the grounds free of litter.
This contract will renew perpetually on Jan. 1 of each calendar year, unless notice to the contrary is served 60 days prior to that time.
In addition to these items, the Kemmerer City Council voted to permit Mayor Zem Hopkins to sign a contract for credit card processing with Eliot Management Group.
This was done after the council reviewed offers from three separate companies and determined they would save at least $2,000 by going with Eliot.
The Eliot Management Group has also agreed to waive any and all set up fees for the city.
The council also approved a modification to the job description of the city administrator. This modification allows city administrator and licensed engineer Rebecca Davidson to use her skills as needed to assist the city of Kemmerer.
Finally, the council passed all budget amendments and proclaimed that Kemmerer’s Arbor Day activities will be held May 16.
