Beginning at 6 p.m. the officials huddled for an hour preceding the regular meet- ing, which lasted until al- most 9 p.m. av. atten- tive crowd of some 25 citizens attending the discussions and pondering by their elect- ed leaders. Both gatherings were void of significant con- tention, which had marked recent meetings. In fact, af- ter the almost three hours of deliberations, Mayor Heidi Brightly remarked to an ob- server that she was great- ly pleased with the coopera- tive atmosphere and general lack of disharmony. The first 30 minutes of the work session involved a detailed presentation by Frank Page, a profession- al engineer from the Cody office of Morrison-Maierle Inc., regarding the town's sewer master plan/Main Street utilities master plan in connection with Wy- DOT's planned redoing the main drag in 2019. In reg- ular session, taking literal- ly a minute for the matter, the vote was 5-0 in favor of authorizing the mayor to sign a $10,000 agreement with Morrison-Maierle for planning and coordinating a wastewater master plan and preparing a State Loan and Investment Board grant application; and working to- ward plans for water, sew- er and irrigation system improvements in connec- tion with WyDOT's 2019 re- surfacing project for Main Street, and a related poten- tial chip seal project. Page stressed that he will work hard to aid the town as its consultant; that he will at- n amon tend council meetings and be available by telephone, too, and could come in under the budgeted amount. Regarding other topics in the work meeting, during which no action can be tak- en, Brightly and her coun- cilors focused on health ben- efits for the town's three full-time employees: Direc- tor of Public Works Brock Meier, Clerk/Treasurer Don- na Booth and Police Patrol- man Noe Garcia. The of- ficials also reviewed some personnel policies and in the regular meeting ate up near- ly 50 minutes and almost completed going through the 17-page document to make various wording chang- es and deleting some items as the number of those in the audience dwindled. The completed version will be made available, possibly next month. Dwain Jackson com- mented from the audience that "there's no need to re- invent the wheel," noting that Cody has such a man- ual and that the mayor and councilors could look at it and adapt it for Byron. In talking about wages, Coun- cilman Alan Bair said the council needs to be involved, citing the mayor's recent hir- ing of Carmen Meier, Brock Meier's mother, as potential backup for Booth. As for the health bene- fits, the council in the regu- lar session voted 5-0 to ex- pand coverage, which will be paid for by the city, although the three workers will have to pay for dental and vi- sion coverage if they so de- cide. The health coverage amounts range from $592 to $1,586 per month depending on the individual and any family members. In other matters: *The mayor stirred some disagreement in seek- ing support for a "Conflict of Interest Ownership/Inter- est Policy," which she said that she had signed and sub- mitted for herself. Council- man Bair said that some of the phrasing "doesn't make sense" and that some is un- clear. Councilman Gary Pet- rich declined to immediately comment on his opinion de- spite Brightly urging him to do so. Indications are that the mayor will provide a list of all town vendors at Bair's suggestion to help clarify the situation. *Bair urged a good look at state law regarding when bills must be paid, as he has continually recommended that all bills should be re- viewed and approved by the council instead of the cur- rent format under which the council essentially "rub- ber stamps" expenses from the preceding month. A new process is in the works, and Booth was thanked for her efforts. *There was some con- versation led by Bair about the mayor's idea to devel- op a "Purchasing Guideline Manual." Bair stated that there "have been some hic- cups" involving problems such as Garcia being able to purchase a bullet-resistant vest and a situation with the Rec Department. Nu- merous aspects of purchas- ing protocol were outlined and the matter will come up again. Bair's position that all spending needs council review and that those au- thorized to purchase items for the town need to know where they stand was ques- tioned from the audience by Teri Coy. Her point was that if preauthorization is grant- ed to department heads, then how can the council re- view such purchases? Bair explained that he'd be OK with a preauthorization sit- uation as long as guidelines were in place. *Due to the consider- able perambulations and the lateness of the hour the august body agreed to table until the September meet- ing discussion on a planned personnel job description review. ;ervices O[Iered Services Ofiered POWELL: 5 BEDROOM, 1-3/4 BATH house, W&D, fenced yard, 149 W 4th near NWC in Powell. $975 per month plus utilities & deposit.
