PUBLIC HEARING:
This being the time published to consider the creation of Title 17, Chapter 18 of the
Jerome Municipal Code (JMC) relating to the use of recreational vehicles as a primary residence,
the Chair opened this public hearing at 5:30 p.m. and briefly reviewed the procedures that will be
followed.
Staff Presentation:
Ms. Monahan stated the purpose of this code is to prohibit the use of recreational motor
vehicles (RV) as a primary residence; provide a licensing procedure for temporary residential
living in an RV in all zones within the City of Jerome; and provide for a penalty for violation of
this chapter.
The City of Jerome Planning and Zoning Commission held a hearing on December 10,
2013 on the proposed addition to Chapter 17.18.020 of the JMC. There were no public
comments received at the time of the Planning and Zoning hearing, and the commission has
recommended adoption of this ordinance. Ms. Monahan explained the ordinance would update
the code to modify and relocate certain sections. It also outlines the definition of a recreational
motor vehicle which includes, but is not limited to motor homes, fifth wheels, over-cab pick-up
campers, and travel trailers/tents. It reiterates that living in recreational vehicles is prohibited
unless otherwise identified in the code, and Ms. Monahan gave specific information regarding
the permitted temporary use of an RV as a residence. One can reside in a parked RV for up to 14
days but the RV must remain mobile and road worthy; it can be connected to electricity but not
to residential clean-outs or to the street manholes. An application procedure will also be required
which will specify the location and length of stay of the unit as well as verify that property
owner’s consent was obtained. This 14-day period can be renewed for 3 periods within a
calendar year, and renewal is based on location of the RV. Licensing will not be required for
stays of less than 72 hours. Violations and penalties are also being added to the code and are
specified in the proposed ordinance.
Upon inquiry by Mayor Davis, Ms. Monahan responded at this time an RV could not be
used for temporary residential purposes for any length of time..
Testimony in favor:
None.
Testimony in opposition:
None.
There being no further testimony to be heard, the Chair closed the hearing at 5:38 p.m.
PUBLIC HEARING:
This being the time published to consider the request of Tanner Johns to rezone a lot from
R-2 to C-2, the Chair opened this public hearing at 5:39 p.m. and briefly reviewed the procedures
that will be followed. The purpose of this public hearing is to seek public comment and hear a
request from Tanner Johns for a rezone of only Lot 9 from Residential 2 (R-2) to General
Business (C-2) on that parcel described as Tax 16 Tax 1 of Lot 8, Lot 9 in Block 144, Jerome
Townsite which is currently a vacant lot located on East Avenue G, near the intersection of
South Lincoln
Staff Presentation:
Ms. Monahan stated the request is for a rezone of only Lot 9 from Residential-2 (R-2) to
General Business (C-2) on that parcel described as Tax 16 Tax 1 of Lot 8, Lot 9 in Block 144
Jerome Townsite which is currently a vacant lot located on East Avenue G, near the intersection
of South Lincoln.
The City of Jerome Planning and Zoning Commission held a hearing on January 13, 2014
on the proposed ordinance and recommends adoption of this ordinance. Water and sewer are
available to the property; because this land is currently undeveloped and not proposed for
subdivision, Title 16 does not apply. It is in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan; Chapter
7, Objective 1 which is to provide an environment that encourages the expansion of existing
businesses and the attraction of new businesses. Furthermore, it is in accordance with Chapter 7,
Policy 8 which is to continue to provide an atmosphere for successful business development. It
is not in accordance with the Land Use Map, which is normal in a rezone request. All city
departments have commented that they see no problems with the proposed rezone and that it is
consistent with City standards.
Testimony by Applicant:
Robert Tanner Johns, 29 Ridge Loop, Jerome, Idaho, was administered the oath and gave
testimony in support of the application. Mr. Tanner Johns briefly explained the history behind
the current building on the corner of East Avenue G and Lincoln, and the lot behind the building.
This has been a vacant lot since 1962 and was combined in 1993. In October 2013, the lot was
being considered for sale. At that time it was discovered that portion of land was zoned as
residential. He stated they went to the Planning and Zoning Commission for their
recommendation on how to proceed.
Testimony in favor:
None.
Neutral Testimony:
Larry Anderson, 752 Falls View Dr., Twin Falls, Idaho was administered the oath and
gave testimony. He owns property just to the east side of Tanner’s property. There are trees on
Mr. Anderson’s property which cross over into the vacant lot that need to be removed. Mr.
Johns stated he will give permission to do so. Upon inquiry by Mr. Anderson regarding setback
requirements, Ms. Monahan indicated she would schedule a meeting to discuss this with him at a
later date.
Testimony in opposition:
None.
There being no further testimony to be heard, the Chair closed the hearing at 5:51
pm.
CONSENT CALENDAR:
Those items contained in the consent calendar are as follows:
1. Approve the minutes of the the February 4, 2014 regular meeting
2. Officer’s reports – Fire, Building, Library, law Enforcement, Finance, and
Planning and Zoning
3. Approval to pay $141,021.00 to Idaho State Insurance Fund for the worker’s
compensation premium
4. Approval to pay $6290.90 to Weschem Inc. for chemfloc 905
5. Approve claims
Upon inquiry, Ms. Cone explained the reasons for the increase in the ISIF premium.
Premium is based on payroll, insurance rates for each class code and the Modification
Experience Rating. Both payroll and the insurance rates have increased; the Modification
Experience Rating went up significantly due to several serious claims where
compensation and medical payments were paid. These claims will stay on the city’s
record for three years so this rate will continue until the time in which they are no longer
on record.
Councilman Culver made the motion to approve the consent calendar as presented.
Second to the motion was made by Councilwoman Soto. After consideration the motion passed
unanimously by the following vote: AYES: Councilman Ross, Councilman Peterson,
Councilwoman Soto and Councilman Culver. NAYS: None.
OATH OF OFFICE TO FIREFIGHTER:
Mayor Davis administered the oath of office to Firefighter Kyler Hartley. His badge was
pinned on by his girlfriend.
PRESENTATIONS:
Bryan Craig, representing the Jerome Skate Park Coalition formally requested $15,000 in
budgeted funds to build Phase 1 of the skate park. The committee has raised $55,000 currently
($15,000 each from the County, the City and Recreation District as well as private donations).
Mr. Craig also inquired about the proposed location of the skate park as there has been some
opposition to that location. The committee is ready to sign the contract with Dreamland once the
final location is determined and funds are released. Councilman Peterson stated he brought the
idea for the skate park to be located in the North Park rather than the Sheppard Park.
Upon inquiry by Mayor Davis, City Administrator Mike Williams confirmed that the
skate park will be located at Sheppard Park.
The Council unanimously agreed to authorize the donation of $15,000 and directed staff
to process the donation.

Ms. Monahan stated this plan was discussed at the previous meeting. The Mobility
Planning and Project Planning Technical Assistance Program is a connectivity plan which would
allow the city to have a plan in place when the times comes for applying for a grant to assist with
funding. She stated with this program there is no cost to the city; the letter of support and an
application have been submitted. Upon inquiry from Mayor Davis, Ms. Monahan stated staff
time would be the only expense. Staff time would be utilized to answer questions which their
consultants may have, and to provide data the city has in order to prepare the documents for
grant requests.
Councilman Culver made the motion to Pass Resolution No. 5-14 as read. Second to the
motion was made by Councilman Ross. After consideration the motion passed unanimously by

Council unanimously supports the proclamation.
APPROVAL TO PURCHASE A VFD DRIVE FOR FLYING J SOUTH WELL #2 –
PUBLIC WORKS:
Councilman Culver made a motion to approve the purchase of a VFD Drive at a cost not to
exceed $30,000.00. Second to the motion was made by Councilwoman Soto. After consideration
the motion passed unanimously by the following vote: AYES: Councilman Ross, Councilman
Peterson, Councilwoman Soto, and Councilman Culver. NAYS: None.
Mr. Appell stated at this time Crossroads Point has been temporarily shut down for construction.
The Flying J well #l is currently the only running well for that area. If the city were to run the #2
well it would run at full speed, reach 100 psi and then shut down depending on cycle rate; this
could cause fixture issues. However, the Department of Environmental Quality could approve
use of the well once drawdown tests are submitted and approved. Testing has been delayed
because the pressures can’t be controlled without the Variable Frequency Drive (VFD). The
pump will run only on an as-needed basis with this drive. Bringing this well into service will
create redundancy and allow the City to meet fire flow demand for the area.
Upon inquiry from Councilwoman Soto, Mr. Appell stated funding for this VFD will come from
the water fund under system repairs. Councilman Culver stated this particular VFD had been
budgeted for 2014-2015 and a back-up plan should be in place with better planning. Mr. Appell
stated the issue came to surface when it was determined that the Crossroads Point construction
suspension took longer than anticipated; he had expected the Crossroads Point well to be running
by October 2013.
Mr. Williams agreed with Councilman Culver’s comments that staff would do well to better
prepare for redundancy and other emergency needs, and he understands the issue with the
Crossroads well. He stated that, as a staff, having back-up systems in place is a priority.
Councilman Culver inquired about the urgency with this item, and Mr. Williams replied that
there is only one functioning well at this time at Crossroads Point. Councilman Ross inquired as
to whether the funds derived from Crossroads are segregated from funds derived within city
limits, and Mr. Appell replied there is very little segregation taking place. Crossroads tenants
pay a surcharge of 7%, and Councilman Ross commented on how those funds could be
earmarked for this type of event so that expenditures intended for projects within city limits
would not be utilized. Mayor Davis stated this will be addressed during the budgeting process.
COALITION OF MAGIC VALLEY CITIES CONTENDING RANGEN WATER CALL:
Councilman Culver moved to approve expenditure for Rangen water call with
representation by legal counsel Rob Williams. Second to the motion was made by
Councilwoman Soto. After consideration the motion passed unanimously by the following vote:
AYES: Councilman Ross, Councilman Peterson, Councilwoman Soto and Councilman Culver.
NAYS: None.
Mr. Lothspeich advised the Council about attorney Rob Williams, a senior partner in Mr.
Lothspeich’s firm who is one of the state’s experts in water law. Rangen has a water call which
will cause a significant effect on the city’s water rights, and a motion to intervene has already
been filed by Mr. Rob Williams on behalf of the municipalities due to lack of time. The
governor called a meeting and, if the curtailment occurs, it will be a state economic crisis as
approximately 100,000 acres could be affected. It will be crucial for the fourteen cities involved
to come together to take immediate action, and a meeting is already scheduled for Feb 20 with
city representatives and their attorneys. An additional water call by Aquarius, Inc. was filed on
Feb 12. At this point it is crucial for the cities to come together along with the involvement of
the Department of Water Resources and the judicial system. One key attorney will result in cost
savings for the municipalities. It is in the City’s best interest to join the coalition and share in the
expenses. Per inquiry by Councilman Culver, several districts could be affected. Mayor Davis
stated the City of Jerome’s water rights could be affected by 20% if not more. Mr. Lothspeich
stated if Aquarius continues with their call and the curtailment stays in place, the City could be
affected even more. It is dependent upon the seniority of water rights and who chooses to file a
water call.
CONSIDER AND PROVIDE COMMENTS REGARDING THE DRAFT ACTIVITY
CONNECTION PLAN:
Ms. Monahan introduced Chris Danley, Consultant from Vitruvian Planning on behalf of the
Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
Mr. Danley shared information on the project. The City previously applied for a High-Five
grant, which was, unfortunately, not awarded. At the same time, the Idaho Department of Health
and Welfare applied for a grant through the Center of Disease Control and saw an opportunity to
share gathered information. Mr. Danley has been working with staff for optimizing facilities
within the City. Finding places where people want to be for daily activities, as well as logical
places, where people spend their time, is important information so we can look at infrastructure
needs that will connect the community through sidewalks, bike path, etc. The Activity
Connection Plan can also assist with the grant funding process.
Mayor Davis inquired as to whether the other entities with property in the connectivity area have
been approached and what do their governing boards feel about this project (county, recreation
district, school district, etc.). Mr. Danley responded there were no negative comments, but
certainly concerns about funding and joint use.
Ms. Monahan stated the plan provides the city with a vision as to where the community is going,
what the city could do, and recommendations on how the city could improve existing facilities.
There is no commitment at this point, but the plan would provide direction on how to move
forward with partnerships.
CONSIDER AND PROVIDE DIRECTION REGARDING THE AMERICAN VETERANS
TRAVELING TRIBUTE, TRAVELING WALL:
Ms. Monahan explained this idea has been discussed previously with administration. In response
to an inquiry about where this project is at, Ms. Monahan brought the item forward with
supporting documentation for further discussion. The cost to bring the wall to the community is
$8,000. A one-half payment is due prior to securing the dates and at the time of signing the
contract. The Vietnam War Commemoration Commemorative Partner Committee feels they can
raise $6,000 prior to the arrival of the wall in support of this event, as well as provide volunteers.
The wall replica requires a 400’ x 200’ flat surface for display. Two locations, one at Summit
Elementary and one at Horizon Elementary, have large flat areas of land available. However,
setting up the wall at a school site would require the event to take place during the summer. She
further stated that this event could coincide with the Jerome County Fair.
Councilman Ross noted this would be a regional event. He has spoken to the Twin Falls
Veteran’s Coalition and is confident the funds can be raised if the City combines efforts with this
group as well as others in the Jerome area. Upon inquiry by Mayor Davis, Ms. Monahan
explained the Summit site would allow visitors to walk to and from the fairgrounds. The display
will be lit. Councilwoman Soto inquired about whether or not the City can be reimbursed for the
$4,000 deposit should payment be made immediately. Mr. Lothspeich replied that while the City
cannot extend credit for the deposit, the committee hosting the event can make a donation back
to the City for the amount paid. Ms. Monahan further commented that the Commemorative
Partnership Program Committee would begin with fundraising as well as gather volunteers for
the event. Mayor Davis suggested that the Chamber of Commerce also be involved in
organizing this event.
Councilman Ross made a motion to authorize Mayor Davis to sign the contract and make
the expenditure of $4,000 from the contingency fund for the deposit. Second to the motion was
made by Councilman Culver. After consideration the motion passed unanimously by the
following vote: AYES: Councilman Ross, Councilman Peterson, Councilwoman Soto and
Councilman Culver. NAYS: None.
EXECUTIVE SESSION:
Councilman Culver made a motion to adjourn to executive session pursuant to Idaho Code 672345(1)(b) to consider the evaluation, dismissal or disciplining of, or to hear complaints or
charges brought against, a public officer, employee, staff member or individual agent. Second to
the motion was made by Councilwoman Soto. After consideration the motion passed
unanimously by the following vote: AYES: Councilman Ross, Councilman Peterson,
Councilwoman Soto and Councilman Culver. NAYS: None.
COUNCIL REPORTS:
Councilman Ross reported on the Depot building. He worked out with the Rotary and the
Jerome Historical Society for two matching grants. The rotary will match the $5,000 grant and
he is looking for matching funds of $4,000 for the other grant so the building can be sided. This
will be added to the next Council agenda for consideration. He also thanked Ms. Monahan for
her work on the veteran’s wall tribute.
Mayor Davis inquired of the Council about capital expenditures that have already been
approved in the budget and asked if it is necessary to bring these things back to the Council.
Councilman Culver stated he feels it is necessary to bring them for discussion. Mr. Williams
suggested we could put these items on the consent calendar with a staff report showing the funds
are available. If the items are approved and the council feels another presentation is not
necessary, that is an option. However, if council prefers to hear another presentation on a capital
item, then the current process can continue. Councilwoman Soto stated she likes to see that staff
is researching the purchases, finding savings and the best products and services available to the
City. Councilman Ross suggested putting expenditures of $10,000 on the agenda for now.
Council agreed.
ADJOURNMENT:
There being nothing further to discuss, this February 18, 2014 regular meeting of the
Jerome City Council adjourned at 7:21 p.m.
