With a quorum present, Mayor Morrison called the meeting to order and led in the Pledge of Allegiance. Councilwoman Jodi Lindsay was excused from the meeting. PUBLIC HEARING: Mayor Morrison opened the Public Hearing regarding the CDBG Grant Application for the Lovell Senior Housing Part 1, Old Hospital Demolition. Discussion was held regarding setting a limit on the purchase price of the property, concern that the funding for grants must eventually be paid back by taxes, increased property tax value to the Town and County once houses are built, and the plan and timeline for completing the project. Estimated expenses the Town may incur for surveying, title insurance, and appraisals and asbestos inspection were also discussed. Concern was expressed about problems that occurred with the Clay Housing project and how they would not be repeated. Elaine Splan expressed support for improving the housing situation for those wishing to remain in Lovell by developing housing for seniors. This in turn provides the availability of larger family homes for new residents. Housing design criteria was also discussed. Sue Taylor-Lovell Inc. director explained the current condition of the building and the procedure and need to dispose of mold and possible asbestos. Mayor Morrison explained this is a great opportunity to do something with the building. Possible provisions for future owners and age and income restrictions were also discussed. Stephen Fowler suggested a committee be formed to work on the project to see it through. Ron McClure and Garrett Pike also volunteered to serve on a committee. Councilman AIIred reiterated the hearing is part of the application process for the grant but much must still be done. The Public Hearing was closed at 7:35 p.m. Mayor Morrison opened the Special Meeting at 7:35 p.m. Resolution 2010-15 authorizing submission of a grant application to the Wyoming Business Council CDBG program for Lovell Senior Housing - Phase 1 Old Hospital Demolition was presented for consideration. Sue Taylor explained a breakdown of projected cost figures for the project. The architectural portion running $195,451 and the asbestos abatement varying from $256,000 to $454,000 depending on the amount of asbestos found through testing. Testing costs are estimated around $2,000. She also explained Elder Care, owner of the old hospital property, wants to retain a portion of the property on the west side for future development. They would be willing to pay up to $3,000 to split the cost for demolition of the old shop building. Resolution 2010-15 was read by Sue Taylor. She also explained various forms needing the Mayor's signature for submission with the grant application. Scott AIIred made a motion to adopt Resolution 2010-15 with the changes as noted during discussion and listing the total cost of the project for the grant application up to $500,000 and to authorize the mayor to sign the necessary paperwork. Second by Bruce Wolsey. All in favor. Motion passed. Discussion was held regarding a letter from Wyoming Department of Transportation addressing the concerns for a flashing caution light and signage on the curve of the highway coming in the west end of town. They will be placing 3 chevrons each direction to delineate the sharpness of the curve for driver awareness but do not feel a flashing light would be the most effective method for correcting traffic. An option of placing the Welcome to Lovell sign away from the curve was also discussed. Parks crews are currently removing grass and will be' installing rock for lower maintenance-en the cup/e-wperty. Deputy Clerk Valerie Beal reported on estimated costs of appraisals for the Clay Housing Subdivision.
