Jackson Approves Repairs of The Kennedy Mine Walking Trail And More

The Jackson City Council approved contracts for repair of the Kennedy Mine Walking Trail and an inspection of the City's sewer lines.   The City will use disaster repair funds awarded from the state and federal governments to make repairs at the Kennedy Mine to areas damaged by heavy winter weather last year.   The walking trails are heavily used by tourists and other visitors to the area, and connect the giant tailing wheels and other notable sites on the Kennedy mine grounds.    The sewer inspection contract will provide both cleaning and closed circuit TV inspections of the city's sewer lines.  The process will cover the entire city over the next five years and cost the city $314,000.  Approval of a list of road improvement projects to be paid for with SB1 gas tax money was put on hold due to a lack of a quorum.  Two city council members live within 500 feet of the proposed projects and were recuesed from the vote, and one council member was on vacation, which left the council short of the 3 members needed to vote on the item.  A special meeting will be arranged to approve the project list.  The Council also oversaw the swearing in of Debbie Mackey as Fire Chief and Emma Brettle as Deputy City Clerk.
