Page 3 - Thursday, July&apos; 16, 2009 "WHERE THE KID GOT HIS NAME" The Sundance Times Sundance City Council Monday - Chicken Tortilla considering deer thinning The question over how to handle the deer population in Sundance was, once again, a major concern facing council members at the July meeting of the Sundance City Council last Tuesday evening. Local resi- dent Troy Bifulco shared concerns he had regarding deer which he felt were posing a very real threat to his daughter and other members of the community: Bifulco ex- plained how he had constructed a six-foot tall privacy fence around his back yard in order to provide a secure environment for his daughter only to find that aggressive deer were still able to leap over the struc- ture and into the yard. Bifulco asked the council to give consideration to the prob- lem and help find a solution other than putting in an eight-foot-tail fence. "We don't want this town to start look- ing like a penitentiary," Councilman Brooks noted, echoing statements of his fellow council members that increased fencing was not a good solution to the problem. A number of other possible solu- tions were discussed ranging from repeal- ing the leash law to possibly sterilizing the resident herds. Wyoming Game and Fish Warden Chris Teter addressed each possible solution noting that, realistically and legally, there were few viable options. Council members discussed the possibil- ity of thinning the animals through lethal means as likely the only effective way of solving the problem. Tater suggested that the city understand that there will be a significant financial cost associated with the proposed solution but also noted it has proven to be effective in other areas. He added that it would be logical to incor- porate a ban on feeding wild animals at the same time if the city wanted to move forward with the plan. Noting that previous discussions re- garding removing deer/banning feed- ing seemed to produce a split among residents, council members questioned whether they could find a solution that would appease any majority. City Attorney Hughes pointed out that sooner or later the council would be faced with the very real prospect of someone being injured' by a deer. He urged the council to take some kind of action now - noting that should something happen in the future, the council will be asking themselves why they didn't do something about the prob- lem when they had a chance to. Eventually, the council agreed to look at a program to thin fhe animals through lethal means, asking Police Chief Fritz and Teter to put together a proposed pro- gram and estimate of costs. In addition, the council agreed to have Hughes draft an ordinance which would prohibit feed- ing of wildlife within the city limits to be presented at the August meeting. In other business: The council rehashed a previous decision to utilize money left over from a block grant for the purchase of a new fire truck. Councilman Brooks said he really felt that money would be better spent on road improvements in the newly- annexed area southeast of town. Brooks noted that the existing gravel street near the Myers and Klocker residences was in poor condition and will be tough to main- tain throughout the winter. Brooks added that he was concerned that residents in the area were annexed into the city yet weren't receiving any of the associated benefits of becoming a city resident such as having a quality, paved street. Mayor Tschetter countered that he felt the city had planned to improve streets in the area as development proceeded. He noted that if the city was to rebuild the streets in question, it would be just a matter of time before they had to dig them up again to expand water mains through the area. Tschetter argued Brook's point that all other annexations had only been accom- plished under the provision that roads were brought up to city standards by pointing out that the city had also never annexed an area of this size. He added that the size and nature of the annexation created a need to look at the process from a different prospective. The remaining members of the council also briefly questioned the agreement to spend money on a new fire truck when other streets around town could still use work. Councilmembers Gill and Gaylord noted their concern that they may have been rushed into making the decision: for the new fire truck during discussion at last month's meeting. They Suggested the possibility of purchasing another used truck that could meet the needs of the fire department and still leave money for more street work. Tschetter disagreed with the suggestion, adding that while there are al- ways a number of possible uses for funds, the fire truck issue has been consistently raised and needs to be taken care of. Ulti- mately, no motion was made to reconsider the original decision and the funds were left as earmarked for a new truck. Todd Fritz informed the council that officer Limoges had been released from the police department and the process of recruiting a new employee was ready to begin. It was revealed later in the meet- ing that Limoges had been involved in a domestic incident that forced his release from the department. Ralph Goodson gave a brief overview of work on water projects north of town. He noted that work on the newly drilled well seemed to be moving in positive direction once again. He said that efforts to clear screens at the bottom of the well appear to be have been successful and pumping tests are beginning. He anticipated they would have a good idea of what capacity the well would be able to produce within a week. In addition to the well, he noted design work for the nearby water storage tank replacement was nearly complete. He said they were currently waiting for infor- mation from the tank manufacturer before they would be able to forward the plans on to Wyoming DEQ for approval. A bid for restroom facilities to be placed within Clarenbach Park was accepted. The winning bid was for a precast structure from CXT Inc. for $87,163.22. Discussion over architectural services for the new city daycare building were held. The council agreed to review propos- als received from various firms and will make a decision as to who to use at the August meeting.
