It's been a great two days in Boise! Yesterday, I attended the 2018 Water Summit for the Association of Idaho Cities where I was elected to a 2-year term serving the Municipal Water Users Group Oversight Board. What an honor!

Today I attended City Officials' Day at the Capitol and enjoyed updates on important topics from our Legislators; from campaign finance reform to court funding. It's been an energizing and inspiring experience all around.

City crews spent the day out in snowplows and graders as today's snowstorm began and continued throughout the day. Designated emergency routes were plowed mult...iple times throughout the day.

Crews have gone home for a much needed rest, but will be returning at 2 a.m. on Wednesday, 12/20, to begin an all-City plow. Work will begin in the downtown core where on-street parking is prohibited between 2 - 6 a.m. between November 1 - March 1, to facilitate snow removal. Plowing will continue on emergency snow and commercial access routes and continue onto residental streets.

All vehicles parked on City streets must be cleared of snow for visibility within 24 hours of any storm. If you have off-street parking available, please park your car there so our crews can remove as much of the snow from the roadway as possible.

Sandpoint City Code requires that property owners remove snow and ice from adjacent sidewalks. Questions or concerns regarding the City's snow removal operations may be directed to the Public Works Department at 208-263-3407 or the City Shop at 208-263-3428. Updates on snow removal declarations and activities will be posted on this page and the City's website.

Have you been to the Cedar Street Bridge lately? If not, you should definitely head on down. I just had the most AMAZING breakfast crepe (for lunch) from the Cedar Street Bistro - it is seriously to die for!

I'm also super excited to explore all of the new offerings at Carousel Emporium at its new location downstairs. It took all my will power to not lo lose an entire afternoon to browsing and let's face it - buying. The Sandpoint souvenir shop has expanded with more cool stuff than ever AND there's a new Christmas shop getting ready to open!

There's so much going on and that's just the tip of the iceberg. Did I mention the Cedar Street Bistro Wine Bar? You should check that out too. And so much more including Creations for Sandpoint Inc.. Check it out! Order the breakfast crepe!

For everyone that displayed one of my yard signs - thank you! I will be working on collecting them over the next few days. So if your sign mysteriously disappears, that was (probably) me. If you've already taken your down, please let me know and I can arrange to collect it.

Thank you to everyone who had the confidence in me to continue serving the City of Sandpoint as a Council Member! I truly appreciate your support and I look forward to working with the rest of the Council on behalf of the citizens of Sandpoint.
