Message from the Mayor

 

 

 

I hope you all had a great summer!  Footballs are flying, the Farmers are well into the fall harvest and summer is gone. It has been a very busy summer for the city & our employees. The Solid Waste Transfer Station and attached Sanitation Shop along with the Powell Municipal Airport Terminal and attached Maintenance Shop are right on schedule. City electric crews are wiring the entire Transfer Station building and provided the power service to the new Airport Terminal building. The majority of funding for these two projects came from State and Federal grants.

Thanks to Park Co. School District No. 1 and the Safe Routes to School Program, new sidewalks are being installed around town to provide safer access for children walking to school. City crews are working with the contractor to relocate street signs. State grant funds are helping with this project making it safer for our kids to walk to school.

We have completed our summer slurry and chip seal program. This included 120,000 square yards of slurry seal 34,000 yards of chip seal. These projects were done with money from Powell’s share of consensus money from the State Land Investment Board (SLIB).  South Bent Street, Tower Blvd and a portion of Panther Blvd and Gilbert Street were chip sealed. The surface of these streets were too bad for normal slurry seal. We are finished street striping and will begin grading alleys soon.

As we move from fall to winter, I would like to remind everyone to “Drive for Conditions” and “Be Careful”.  Snow and ice removal and street sanding will only take place during normal working hours.

This summer the water department installed an overflow line on the east water tower to prevent street flooding.  They have also been building up and re-rocking the banks of the lagoons.

Other large projects have been keeping us busy with the relocating and the installation of new utilities.

  • A new 28,000 square foot academic building at Northwest College which will be a beautiful addition to what I think is the nicest junior college campus in the state.

  • One Stop Motor Sports, Specialty Tool and Attachments, Gluten Free Oats, Immanuel Lutheran Church and New Life Church. These are all new construction Projects.

  •  Two new residentual subdivisions, Cedarwood  4 and Peterson 4   

Powell PD welcomes new Police Officer Trevor Carpenter; he will be filling a position that has been vacant since 2010. We are also welcoming new Dispatcher Jessie Hodges, coming to us from Teton County.  Over the Summer months the City of Powell acquired a mobile command post through a grant from Homeland Security, and most recently purchased two 2009 Dodge Ram pickups from Sublette County.  Yes, they really were purchased for $10 each.
