During a regularly-scheduled Wednesday evening meeting, the Wellington City Council appointed a new member to the Price River Water Improvement District (PRWID) board.
Dan Schaugaard was chosen to represent the city. Mayor Joan Powell stated that she believes he has good qualifications to take care of the board and looks forward to having him working with Wellington City.
An idea was voiced to have Schaugaard attend a work meeting and sit with the members to talk about what the city wants to happen. Schaugaard will now represent both PRWID and Wellington City. It was brought up that at times, these two roles may conflict.
Also discussed was the re-codification and web posting for the city. This would ensure placing ordinances and codes online and two companies were discussed. The first was Code Publishing, which is based out of Washington state and was started in 1989. It is a smaller company of about 20 employees that work closely together.
The second company was Municode, which have been around for nearly 40 years. Each member of the work meeting and the council were given a handout and it was discussed that there was not much of a price difference between the two.
However, what really stood out to the members was that Code Publishing will link to the state code while the latter does not. City Recorder Glenna Nelson suggested getting started now, doing one half this fiscal year and beginning the next half in the new fiscal year, which was agreed upon.
Councilwoman Paula Noyes motioned to approve working with Code Publishing, which was seconded by Councilwoman Bethany Perea.
