Price city supports new pedestrian path

A bicycle pedestrian pathway is being considered along the Price River corridor, paralleling U.S. Highway 6 from state road 10 to the old Gordon Creek road, a distance of 2.1 miles.

The funding for this project will not be available until 2007 and at that point design, environmental clearance and easement acquisitions could get underway.

During the Jan. 24 Price city council meeting councilmembers voted to allow mayor Joe Piccolo to sign and submit an application on behalf of Price city for their portion of the funding package. The city will share cost of the pathway with Carbon County.

East County cities to finalize contract

East Carbon and Sunnyside will conduct a joint city council meeting on Jan. 30 to discuss finalizing an interlocal agreement.

The contract would put both cities' fire departments and the Sunnyside ambulance service in the same complex pending funding from the Utah Permanent Community Impact Board for a new public safety building.

The two municipalities have been sorting through an agreement for nearly three months and have slated discussion of the interlocal contract as the only agenda item for the public meeting. The meeting will take place at East Carbon City Hall beginning at 6:30 p.m.

District will not reconsider decision

At a special Carbon School District board meeting last week, officials said they will not reconsider a Jan 10. decision to not to renew the contract of Superintendent Dave Armstrong.

Parents and community members at the meeting expressed concerns that the action was taken without their input and said there was inadequate notice regarding the decision.

Now the question before the board is whether to allow Armstrong an early retirement and appoint an interim superintendent to finish the contract, which ends in June.

The board affirmed its commitment to support Armstrong as superintendent as long as he fills the position.
