LINGLE – The Town of Lingle is receiving approximately seven phone calls per day regarding eclipse parking, Clerk-Treasurer Michele Sussex informed the council at its meeting Wednesday.
“I’ve been telling them they can park on all the streets in Lingle, but we don’t have any designated parking,” Sussex said.
The council also discussed blocking off the streets near the Lingle Fire Hall to allow the fire department access in case of an emergency.
In other business:
• Police Chief Endra Moen reported she had a flat tire on Saturday caused by a bolt or steel roofing nail. Although Moen had to wait until Monday to get the tire fixed, a local resident assisted in putting the spare tire on her police vehicle.
She responded to 115 incidents, including 95 traffic stops, since the last council meeting.
• Sussex stated the town’s end-of-the-year financials “look pretty good”.
She also confirmed the Wyoming Department of Transportation silent railroad crossing project will begin the end of September or beginning of October.
• Maintenance Supervisor Larry Haeffelin said his department mowed and watered the cemetery, poured concrete, poured a curb and patch, trimmed trees, sprayed weeds, and handled several other maintenance tasks during the last few weeks.
• The next council meeting is Wednesday, Aug. 23 at 5 p.m. at Lingle Town Hall.
Following the meeting, the council adjourned to Whipple Park in Lingle for the annual Community In The Park event. Lingle Lions Club, Lingle Volunteer Fire Department and community musicians came together Wednesday evening at Whipple Park in Lingle for the annual Community in the Park event.
