PINEDALE – The Pinedale Town Council (PTC) hosted a workshop meeting on Saturday at the Pinedale Town Hall to finish prioritizing a list of goals council members would like to work toward. They want the list finalized before the upcoming budget period, so they can properly allocate funds.
To come up with the list of goals, council members compiled items they believed to be important in various categories, such as infrastructure and economic development. Some of the items would take significant funds to complete, while others are less expensive. Many items would only take staff time to complete, such as an ordinance revision.
Council members then ranked the items by a point system and combined the scores to learn what the council as a whole agreed should be priorities.
Councilmember Dave Hohl’s votes for items have yet to be tallied for the final ranking list, so numbers could possibly shift. As it stands, town priorities for infrastructure include implementing Phase 7, replacing the final portion of sewer and water lines, Phase 3, fixing water line freezing problems, and installing a dump and potable water station for recreational vehicles within city limits.
Mayor Stephen Smith explained all of the town priorities could not be completed in the span of one budget year, and the PTC could not simply go down the list to construct projects.
