Funds to help buy Arena lights and other town notes by Patti Babcock Some Board members expressed surprise at the spe- cial Board meeting Tuesday night when they were told there is $12,500 in grant money available for arena lights. Buildings and Grounds Director Gordon Scott said the $25,000 grant from the Department of Forestry was split between Simkins Park and the Arena, Board member Steve Rainbolt said, "I didn't know we had $12,500 for lighting for the arena. Scott said, 'Tin doing an update for you people." Charlotte LeVar, chairman of the board, wanted to know why the arena was not on the agenda. Town secretary Peggy Warner said the light bidding for the arena is on the May 13 agenda. LeVar said she though the panels were to be on this agenda. They were discussed curing the "old business" section when the Board voted 5-0 to seek bids for the panels. The information should be available for the next meeting. In other town business, the Board voted unanimously to make May 1, 1997 the closing date for applications for town maneger. They also voted 5-0 to pay $102.48 quar- terly to insure ten people, volunteers and community service workers, who answer phones and perform other duties but are not fire fighters. Insurance for these workers "go lost" during the transition to Public Agencies Com- pensation Fund (PAC). Board member Bob Little abstained when the rest of the board voted to refer the need for "welcome" and directional signs and the removal of one state sign to the Economic Development Task Force. Board member Charlie Gronda said there is a need for 12 signs. Some need only repair, some need to be replaced and a few need to be added. Roger Burnley, a member of the now defunct Pahrump Planning Committee, gave a detailed account of the signs and what is needed. The Board will revisit signs when the task force makes its recommendation.
