The Baker City Council met in regular session Wednesday evening and discussed a variety of issues. The board discussed the formation of two committees, one to assist with a review of potentially outdated policy books and a second to review issues surrounding curbside pickup of city refuse.
Cold mix has finally arrived and the city crews are hard at work repairing streets. The council discussed roadwork that needs immediate attention and areas where Montana Dakota Utilities will need to make their own repairs.
The city also found a roller-packer at a cost of $2500 in order to maintain and repair roads in Baker. Currently, the city uses the county’s packer and acknowledges that sharing one roller-packer for the entirety of Fallon County makes repairing roads a slow process.
Baker’s fireworks show will be staged at the baseball field so that attendees in the grandstands of of the fairgrounds can view them. Residents complained of not being able to see the fireworks show when they were set up at the airfield.
A representative from the Eagle Land subdivision was in attendance and thanked the council for working with them as they complete plans to begin development in southwest Baker. A public meeting will be held to discuss the developer’s planned stages of development before they break ground.
The board also agreed that, due to the 4th of July holiday, the next city council meeting would be on Monday, July 2nd in the Fallon County Courthouse basement conference room.
