Questions and comments were heard from Councilwoman Johnston and Councilman Grimes, Romey and Lukens. This topic will be on a future council agenda for consideration
Proclamation: Mayor Nelson read a proclamation declaring September 25th as Disabled American Veterans Day
Council Updates: HS Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Olivia Mears presented the Council with a report of recent Chamber activities. Although it has been a difficult year with a late start to our Tourism season, they continue to look optimistically to the future and are planning on modified events in the fall including a Merchants Trick or Treat on Halloween and Christmas Cheer Cruise in coordination with the Festival of Lights Parade during the Christmas Season. Planning for the 2021 Tourism season has begun and marketing and advertising plans are being made. It is possible that next year we will continue to see a trend towards RV’ing and camping and a preference for the Great Outdoors. The Chamber is moving forward with an upgrade to their website as well. Comments and questions were heard from Councilman Grimes, Councilwoman Johnston and Mayor Nelson.
Fall River County Emergency Manager Frank Maynard reviewed information regarding both the Local Emergency Operation Plan (LEOP) and the Pre Disaster Mitigation Plan (PDMP). Councilman Romey asked about community wildfire protection plans and Mayor Nelson asked about emergency generator purchase plans, which were both confirmed to be included. Maynard stressed that the LEOP is not a public document as it identifies primary agencies and coordination for various emergencies. Concerns regarding Mr. Maynards being the sole individual in our County responsible to orchestrate an emergency response were discussed, Fall River County has an agreement with 8 surrounding communities to share support in the event of emergencies and LEOP’s are structured the same no matter where you live. Online and upcoming ICS training opportunities were also discussed.
