Council retains same look, with Sanders back as mayor

by C.F. David

The Boise City Council retained its now familiar look with Ron Carey and Leroy Randolph being sworn as councilmen, and Craig Sanders and Randolph remaining as Mayor and Vice-Mayor for two year terms.

The council made quick work of their short agenda.

They authorized Sanders to convey ownership of a cemetery lot to Brian Alvarez, and accepted a proposal from William K. Gauer to perform the annual audit for the price of $2,250 plus expenses.

The council then had a brief discussion before acting on and voting for a motion by Councilman ron Carey and seconded by Councilman Tim Baird, to approve a payment to Cimarron County of $40 thousand for dispatching services.

Moving into the works authority portion of the meeting, the members accepted a proposal from William K. Gauer to perform the annual audit for the price of $2,250 plus expenses.

The council then waived all but $100 on a water bill of $624.90. The large amount of water used was due to a leak during the heavy winter storms.

City Manager Rod Avery told the council that some cities have a policy for such matters.

Councilman Wayne Montgomery pointed out that since this was a rare occurance, a policy probably wasn’t needed.

Then Councilman Leroy
Randolph suggested that each incident be decided by a case-by-case basis, the council concurred.
