SIDNEY HERALD Milestone SUNDAY, FEB. 24, 2019 3 City hears from library director Cancer care Town hall soda BY NICOLE lUCINA SIDNEY HERALD Kelly Reisig, library director of the Sidney- Richland County Li- brary, addressed city council members during the meeting held on Tuesday night. She pro- vided the council mem- bers with the 2018 report. She explained that they are short three full time employees. She added that county commission ers approved for them to hire one more person. Reisig added that they are still hosting many events for the commu- nity and that the latest would be a “Book Tast- ing” for adults. They will be providing appetizers and nonalcoholic wine while community adults take the opportunity to look at books. Reisig said that they hope that after the remodel is done that the county will approve them to hire two other full time people since there will be an upstairs and downstairs. She not— ed that after the remodel community colleges will be using the classroom. She said they just finished filling out the application for the Excelv lence in Library Service to the Public. If they are awarded again it would be the third year in a row. Mayor Rick Norby said, “Thank you for everything you do. We’re very lucky to have you.” Norby and City Clerk/ Treasurer Jessica Red— field gave their report from their week in Hel- ena. Norby said, “It was a very productive week.” Redfield explained that while there they spoke with the Lieutenant Gov- ernor and Budget Direc— tor about the Governor’s bonding bill. They talked about target rates that the , state has established that must be in place for applying for state infrastructure assistance and grants. It was noted that Sidney and many communities in the state don’t and can’t reach target rates for their base rates. Norby also explained that they also testified on HB372. Redfield. stated that currently, the state has established protocols that ensure that even I when taxable valuations go way up, the property Obituary tax revenue of local gov— ernment’s only increases by half the inflation rate average of three years: She added that this is { accomplished by chang- ' ing the number of mills the local government is allowed to assess. HB372'is attempting to remove the half of the inflation rate, which will only increase the prop~ erty taxes very mini mally for the property tax owner, one estimate being less that $5 per year for a property worth $100,000. but increases the revenue for the local governments for funding police, fire and parks. Also during the meet- ing: he East Holly Water project pay application and change order were tabled till a later meet- ing due to clarification errors. Waste Water Treat- ment Plant phase three draw in the amount of $76,570.78 was approved. - Casey Hanson from Morison—Maierle pre- sented the council with y the Waste Water Treat ment Plant phase three change order #1 in the amount of $15,030.00 William l’Bill” Huckley, Funeral service for William “Bill” Hackley, 86, of Plentywood, formerly of Sidney, is 10:30 am. on Saturday; Feb. 23, 2019, at the Assembly of God Church in Sidney with Pastor Brandon Smithson officiating.
