Enc. mayor thanks Harveys
Encampment council hears thanks for community events, looks to get new traffic speed indicator, update map
Greg Salisbury, mayor of Encampment, went on record to say how grateful he was for all the work town clerk and her husband, Ron, did to make the Community Barbecue/Potluck, Community Garage Sale and Music in the Park a major success.
It was estimated 300 people attended the barbecue and Jake Clayton concert.
“I want to say thank you very much to Doreen and Ron, because they are the heart of this whole thing taking off,” Salisbury said. “Without those two, although I want to say thanks to all who helped, it was those two who were the backbone of this whole event being a huge success.”
The other council members present also individually thanked Harvey.
Council member Cindy Hamilton said Harvey’s introduction of brats to the event was an excellent idea.
“The brats were a huge success,” Hamilton said. “I heard a lot of positive things everywhere I went.”
Harvey thanked the mayor and council for their words of approval and said she was really happy with how the day went. She said some businesses told her the day was good for them too, in addition to participants of the garage sale.
“I heard really only positive things about the yard sale,” said Harvey. “We had 24 participants and there was a good crowd that went to these sales before our barbecue.”
The work on 8th Street hydrant and valve project was going well said Harvey.
Financials for July were approved.
The Title 9.08 Alcoholic Beverages had its third and final reading after Harvey said she and Jason Allen from the Wyoming State Liquor Division had reviewed it together and gotten it ready for the council’s approval.
The council approved funds for flowers to be sent to the memorial service for the recently deceased Dave Erikson who was the town’s attorney.
A new traffic speed indicator is coming in next week said Harvey.
The town council approved the catering application for the Mangy Moose for the upcoming Copper Days to be held September 9-10.
The council approved the abandonment of water taps for 309 West Emerson as the owner had complied with all regulations to do so.
After Harvey asked for approval to look at options for modernizing the town map, the council granted her request.
