Work Session

The work session of the Mayor and Council of the City of Gooding, Idaho was called to order at 5:00 pm in the Gooding Municipal Building, 308 5th Ave West, Gooding, Idaho on April 15, 2014.

Roll Call

 Present were Mayor Nelson, Councilpersons Arkoosh, France, Houser and Magnelli. 

City Staff

Present were Public Works Director Todd Bunn, City Attorney Craig Hobdey and City Clerk Morri Hall.

Airport Hangar Purchase:  The Airport Fixed Base of Operation (FBO) Hangar is not currently owned by the City of Gooding.  The City of Gooding would like to purchase the FBO.  The city received an appraisal from LeMoyne Appraisal LLC for the FBO but it did not include anything about income potential.  Public Works Director Todd Bunn will contact the current owner to ask for a proposal regarding terms for him to lease the FBO back from the City if it is purchased.

Transient Merchant/Peddlers:  After Council discussion, it was determined that no changes need to be made to the current ordinance regarding transient merchant/peddlers. 

Annexation of Rural Fire Department Land:  The Council discussed the annexation of the Rural Fire Department Land into the City limits and whether other land owners around the property who receive city services should be annexed as well.  Attorney Hobdey advised the Council to have surveys done of the land they would like annexed and that he will need the legal descriptions to move forward.  The Council asked Public Works Director Todd Bunn to have three separate (3) surveys done so they have options available should any land owner contest annexation.

Fence Ordinance:  Public Works Director Todd Bunn and Attorney Craig Hobdey will work together regarding the fence ordinance and bring the Council back a draft ordinance for further discussion.

Personnel Policy:  The Council decided they needed to take the personnel policy home to review and will discuss it again at a later time.

Executive Session:  Councilman France moved to adjourn into executive session in accordance with Idaho Code 67-2345 Section (b) to consider the evaluation, dismissal or discipline of an employee.  Motion seconded by Councilman Arkoosh.  Upon roll call, Councilpersons Arkoosh, France, Houser and Magnelli voted aye.  Motion carried.

The meeting reconvened and there being no further business, the meeting adjourned.
