2 1 The Lovell Chronicle I March 1,2012 Hearing tonight for subdivision infrastructure BY DAVID PECK Phase I of the Town of Lovell/Lovell Inc. project to demolish the old hospital on 10  Street and replace it with a senior housing project is well under way, and now the town is working to fund Phase II: in- frastructure for the future housing devel- opment. The Lovell Town Council discussed a resolution authorizing the town to seek a grant for housing infrastructure during a special meeting Monday night ahead of a public hearing scheduled for tonight (Thursday) at 7 p.m. at town hall. In recent weeks the town has taken steps to take ownership of the 10  Street property where the old North Big Horn Hospital lies by replatting the existing lot, getting subdivision approval and fil- ing the plat and deed, Lovell Inc. Director Sue Taylor said. The town also signed the grant agreement to receive some $491,000 in Community Development Block Grant money from the Wyoming Business Coun- cil that was awarded a year earlier. The land for the housing project was donated to the town by Elder Care, Inc., which retained 20,000 square feet on the west side of the the property for future con- sideration. The next step is asbestos abatement, and Taylor said Northern Industrial Hy- giene of Billings, who did the preliminary asbestos inspection as part of the grant ap- plication process, will be contracted with to perform the balance of the inspection in March. The company will then help the town select an abatement contractor via a bid, and Taylor said the goal would be to perform the abatement during April. The demolition contract is tentatively scheduled to be awarded at the May town council meeting after going out to bid in April. Demolition should begin in May, Taylor said, and could take 60 days to com- plete. PHASE II As for Phase II, tonight's public hear- ing will allow the town to pass a resolu- tion authorizing the town to seek a CDBG grant through the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, Taylor said, not- ing that in the case of a town the size of Lovell, the grant will be awarded by the Wyoming Business Council. The town is seeking a grant for $496,449, matched by $59,563 in cash and in-kind consideration, for a total project of $556,012. Taylor said the cash match of $22,783 includes money already expended for engineering and preparing plat docu- ments; title insurance, title document preparation and filing fees; and money expended on the Lovell Housing Assess- ment. The in-kind match of $36,780 is the estimated fair market value of the proper- ty for the 2.45 acre piece of land the town will contribute to the housing project. If and when funded, the grant will pay for curb and gutter, street, alley, side- walk, water and sewer, and public utility lines - electric, gas and telephone - that will be run to the site. Taylor told the council Monday that the housing assessment stated in detail the need for senior housing in Lovell and will provide valuable information for the grant application. She said the business council will make its final decision on May 24 for proj- ects in the current funding cycle, noting that there is about $2 million available and around $4 in grant requests. After discussion of the resolution, the council considered and voted to approve and authorize the mayor to sign a Title I Certification of Applicant stating that the town will comply with all of the provisions of Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 19"/4 in order to re- ceive CDBG money for the housing project. HOUSE ents' right to control deci- sions for their children. "We wanted them to know that we are against any law that takes away a parent's right to discipline their children and to make them accountable," said Harvey. "I think the resolutions are symbolic for the most part, but when they get enough of them t, they pay attention," she said. A bill that sought to end the state's universal vac- cine-buying program was rejected because it was not found to be cost effective. Harvey explained that the method the state currently POACHED continued from page 1 about the poaching or who may have seen suspicious activity in that area is asked to call Hobbs at 548- 7310.

A bill passed the House that would require welfare recipients to submit to ran- dom drug testing in order to qualify for benefits. "This bill in particular is something people have asked me for," said Harvey. Harvey explained that the bill won't take benefits away from children if a par- ent tests positive for drugs, but it will mean that a fiscal agent is appointed to pay directly for rent, utilities, personal items and clothing on behalf of the child. The idea is to push people into treatment and recovery so they can live more produc- tive lives, she said. An interesting bill call- ing for the formation of a contingency government and military operation gov- erned by the state in the event of a federal govern- ment collapse was rejected. "HB85 died on third reading. It had the poten- tial of being good policy for emergency preparedness, but because of some of the amendments, it failed," said Harvey. The House will contin- ue its work for the next few weeks. All of the bills ap- proved by the House must be approved by the Senate before going to the Gover- nor for signature.
