Crouch City Council Council held their regular meeting on March 9. This was
the day of reckoning, after years of talking
about a new sewer system.
City attorney, John McFadden, recommended
that due to the time constringency,
the Council should approve Ordinance 2011-01, calling for the bond election for the construction and installation of improvements to the City sanitary system. The special municipal bond election will be held on Tuesday, May 17, 2011.
McFadden reminded Council that if they should decide to pull the election for
any reason, the maximum they could be out would be $1200, "though
probably not that much--I can't imagine."
The system will include construction of a distribution and collection system,
lift station and treatment plant. The city has pursued acquisition of land for
the plant for many months now, though there has been no mention of a site
The cost and expenses of the acquisition, construction and installation of the
project is estimated by engineers, Forsgren and Associates, as $2,600,000.
The revenue bonds of the City will not exceed $1.2M. The remainder of the
costs, if any, will be paid from grants and other City funds.
City Clerk, Kim Bosse, swore in new Councilmember, Robert Dickson.
Council authorized the city clerk to apply for another $300 grant for plantings
around the Community Hall.
The appraisal for insurance did not include the old library building, so back to
the drawing board.
The next regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Crouch will
be held in the Crouch Community Hall, 1022 Old Crouch Road, Crouch, Idaho,
on Wednesday, April 13, 2011. For information, contact City Clerk, Kim Bosse,
