wtvw: LovellCh ronicle, com May 13, 2010 J The Lovell Chronicle I 3 00Pec)ple @ the news Byron news Mayor Meier seeking second term GARY GRUELL 548-222O It is official. Mayor Mil- ton Meier has submitted his application for nomination seeking a second term. Tom Langston has publicly an- nounced he will run for one of the two open positions on the town council. Anyone interested in serving the community by running for one of the three positions must submit an application for nomination. The application is available at the Secretary of State Web site at http://soswy. state.wy.us. Vicky at town hall is available to provide assistance. The time frame for applying is relatively short. Applications must be filed prior to the 28th of May along with the $25 fil- ing fee. Mike Alexander of Farmers Exchange Group is trying to reduce the fire rating for the town of By- ron. Byron does not have a fire district, therefore the Insurance Service Office (ISO) has rated Byron a 10, which is the highest rating. Any homeowner knows that this rating results in the maximum insurance pre- mium. The ISO determines the rating based on the average response time and distance for a given area. By con- tract, the Big Horn County Fire Protection District No. 1, located in Lovell, has pro- vided fire protection to By- ron for many years and has done a "knockout"job. Their response time for Byron is right at 10 minutes. The ISO rating of one is based on a five-mile radi- us and 10-minute response time. With that in mind, it is understandable that By- ron should be rated higher than a "one" but the "10" rating is way out of line. If Alexander is successful, the town of Byron and its resi- dents could see a significant decrease in insurance pre- miums. The monthly Mayor's Luncheon will be held Fri- day, May 14, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The free event is open to the pub- lic. The luncheon is an ex- cellent way to mingle with friends, make new acquain- tances and enjoy free food. The Local Emergency Planning Committee for Big Horn County will hold their monthly meeting at the town complex on May 27 at 7 p.m. The meetings are alternated from the south end to the north end of the county. RMHS will have their last commencement ceremo- ny in Byron on May 25. It is commonly known that the school facility will be closed at the end of the school year and the high school will be moving into the new 6-12 facility in Cowley. Graduating seniors from Byron are Samantha Alvarez (Carrizal), Eliz- abeth Gurrola, Andrew Palmer, Joshua Pingle- ton, Jeff Sanders and Ka- cee Thompson. Congratu- lations to them. Although we have many students at- tending school in Lovell, I am not aware of any seniors this year. The regular town coun- cil meeting was to be held Tuesday, May l l. The reg- ular meeting start time has been changed back to 7 p.m. with a work meet- ing at 6. This time frame is now year-round. Highlights of this meeting will be ad- dressed in next week's col- umn. As always, have a great and safe week.
