Enough snow and dogs already; Paradise looks for spring

PARADISE—The Town Council reviewed winter operations and began planning for spring  Wednesday night.

After approving a building permit for a new home to be built at 230 W. 8700 South, the council turned their attention to roads.

Mayor Leland Howlett and Paradise resident Lee Atwood were in charge of snow removal for the 2012-2013 winter. By avoiding hiring a contractor, the council was able to save Paradise  nearly $3,000, according to a report produced by Howlett.

Saturday’s dog clinic was also critiqued during the meeting. “We were able to register about 100 dogs,” Howlett said.

Although the council viewed the clinic as a success, Howlett said there are still around 500 or 600 unregistered dogs living in Paradise. Residents who have not yet registered their dogs will now be required to visit the city office, he said.

The council also discussed and approved schedule changes. Due to Cache County School District’s spring break, the council voted to reschedule their April 3 meeting, and will meet instead on April 8. In addition to moving the meeting day, the council also announced that meetings will be held at 7:30 p.m. beginning after daylight saving time resumes March 10.

In other news the council:

  • signed bills totaling $19,753.02.
  • discussed plans for a spring clean-up.
  • acknowledged that the town fire department hasn’t been called to any emergencies in the last two weeks.
  • announced Bev Schiefer, the town clerk, will be on temporary leave at the end of March and to check the upcoming newsletter for modified office hours.

The next council meeting will be held March 20 at 7 p.m.
