General business talks at town council

Lakeview Town Council’s Tuesday, March 12, regular session primarily focused on general updates from councilors on varied committees and liaison assignments, among other general discussion.

9-1-1 Dir. Scott Utley informed the council of two dispatchers training at the Department of Public Safety Standards Training (DPSST) academy at that time. Other updates included continuing work on the 9-1-1 mapping system, with major Forest Service roads and other features being implemented into the system.

Public Works Dir. Ron Wilkie reported that traffic signage on South E Street near the intersection of South 1st Street had been completed. This followed an action earlier this year in which the council approved making South E completely one-way only in traffic direction between South 1st and 5th streets. Previously, a brief portion of South E Street was open to two-way traffic near the Lake County OSU Extension Office.

Town Mgr. Ray Simms reported completion of the 2013/14 budget for 9-1-1 by Wednesday, March 13, which would then be submitted to the Lake Emergency Telecommunications (LETS) 9-1-1 Intergovernmental Council for their review. The IGC then has until May 1 to comment on the budget as presented, he said.

Mayor Mike Patrick updated the council on the recent March 7 meeting of Oregon Small Cities, held in the western Oregon community of Winston. A National Guard lieutenant spoke of community projects the Guard is available for as part of their training. Mayor Patrick suggested the pool restoration project as a proposal.

“We could get quite a bit of our work done with that,” he said.
