Check out noteworthy things being done and honors received by people in Idaho cities around the state.
Ike Martinez was sworn in as a new member of the Council City Council. He replaces Barry McDaniel, who resigned.
On Aug. 1, Emmett City Clerk/Treasurer Chrystal Whitely submitted her resignation, effective immediately. In her resignation she thanked Mayor Gordon Petrie and the city staff, considering it an honor to serve with such a dynamic team. Whitely had been with the city for 10 years and served as it’s clerk for six years.
Even though August 30 was Alyce Kelley Day for the City of Emmett, this didn’t stop the Emmett Public Library Director from helping clients. Kelley was presented the honor of Alyce Kelley Day by Mayor Gordon Petrie at the August 23 Emmett City Council meeting.
Teri Pierce retired from the Ketchum Wastewater Treatment Facility after 33 years of keeping the Big Wood River clean.
The Best in Show Award in the 59th annual Wagon Days parade went to Wood River Chapel for their 100-year-old Funeral Wagon, and the Kimberly Rhoads People’s Choice Award went to the Rock Family of Carey, Idaho, for their Concord Stage Coach. The “Big Hitch” parade is one of the largest in the country without motor vehicles. This year there were more than 70 entries in the parade, and more than 17,000 people went to Ketchum for a weekend of activities.
The St. Maries City Council voted to lower the speed limit from 25 mph to 15 mph on the one-way streets that travel by Heyburn Elementary and St. Maries Middle School—13th and 14th Streets.
