Pahrump Valie, Gazette, Thursday, May29, 1997 7 Town Board Notes: Tuesday, May 27, 1997 Terrible Town's proposed building may create fire proteelion problems Terrible Town's General Manager, John Thielman, presented Terrible's plans to build a seven story building that will have from 120 to 130 hotel rooms from the third floor up. Thielman said the plan is to open the facility in approximately one year. The Board expressed support for the project. However, Board Member Steve Rainbolt expressed concern about Pahrump's ability to provide fire protection to a seven story building. Fire Chief Long said Pahrump would be unable to do this with its current equipment. Long estimated it would cost between $300,000 to $400,000 to purchase the necessary aerial equipment. Rainbolt expressed concern about the cost to Pahrump's taxpayers. Thielman said the equipment could be leased rather than purchased. He also suggested room tax might be used, but said it is early to discuss this since the architect's plans are not yet finalized. He assured the BoardTerrible' s would not proceed with a plan that didn't meet the State Fire Marshal's approval. Pool Opens June 6 New carpet will spruce up the entry area to the pool for the 1997 season. Four new tables with umbrellas and 16 new chairs will be added for swimmers time-outcomfort. Another addition, aportable handicapped lift will make the pool more accessible for people with special needs. The board approved expenditures of $450, $650 and $1,107 for the improvements. Bums had previously asked for a pool heater but said he needs more time to research the item. Pool Manager John Bums asked for an additional expenditure' of $250 each to train eight lifeguards. Board Member Bob Little questioned why there is a last minute training problem and why it costs over twice as much to train the lifeguards this year as it did last year. Burns said four lifeguards were sent to Las Vegas for the Red Cross class last year. The lack of returning lifeguards, mostly students, has created the need to train more new people. He said it was not feasible for everyone to go to Las Vegas for the training, and it costs more to have the trainer come to Pahrump. Burns said he is qualified to train lifeguards and the County Training Officer (Steve Maison) could teach CPR. However, Bums says he was told not to conduct the classes. Town Attorney Len Smith said he had the conversation with Bums and advised him to have the Red Cross give the training. If' the Town does the training it increases the Town's liability / dramatically, Smith said. If the Red Cross does it, the liability goes down dramatically. The board approved the expenditure 4-1 with Board Member Bob Little voting No. Pool business was completed for the evening when the board voted unanimously to approve the revised pool policy. Signs for Pahrump Curtis Rutnik representing the Economic Development Task Force said the group thinks a new "welcome" sign at C.A.S.S. Road and Highway 160, two other small signs and the repair of another sign, as discussed at the last Town Board meeting, is a good idea. The board unanimously approved $1,594.from the room tax fund to pay for the signs which will be produced by High Impact Signs. Valley Electric Association has volunteered to install the C.A.S.S. Road sign and Board Member Steve Rainbolt said he will make arrangements with Town staff to install the remaining signs. Town to fund Chamber of Commerce brochure The Chamber of Commerce will receive a grant up to $3,300, but not to exceed the actual cost, for 15,000 four color promotional brochures. The board voted unanimously to provide the funding which will be taken from the room tax fund. Town returns land to County Nye County Treasurer Pat Foster asked the Town to return property purchased from the County in a trust sale so the County can return it to the heirs of the original owner. Foster said she had neglected to check for heirs when the notices to the owner were returned. "It won't happen again," she said. Smith said it was a simple matter to return the property. The District Attorney's office is preparing the quit claim deed. The $2,723 voted 5-0 to return the land. Pahrump Museum request referred to Task Force George Mapes asked the Town for a grant of $2,000 to help restore the original Chamber of Commerce building now at the museum site. Rainbolt said the Board has not made grants. LeVar concurred saying everybody would have their hand out. Little questioned what $2,000 would do toward restoration of the building. The request was referred to the Economic Development Task Force to study and return a recommendation at the next board meeting. Fire Chief receiving numerous requests for fire code interpretation At the completion of his activity report for April 1997, Fire Chief Veto Long informed the Board an increasing amount of his time, up to 15 to 20 hours per week, is spent responding to requests for fire code interpretation and review. He said the State Fire Marshal's office only has two people for all of Southern Nevada, but much of this needs to be handled by their office. He has requested a meeting with the State Marshal to discuss the problem. Long also announced that 11 new fire fighters have completed the Entry Level Fire Fighters training. There are currently 50 volunteers on the roster. Ten are inactive. Permits are required for all controlled burns. They are available at the Fire Department from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. To obtain the required control number or to receive a permit when the Fire Departrhent office is closed contact the Nye County Sheriff's Office at 751-7000.
