Five Proclamations to be Issued at Pocatello City Council Meeting


Five proclamations are set to be issued by Mayor Brian Blad at Thursday’s meeting of the Pocatello City Council.

The first proclaims April 15 to be Portneuf Valley Community Environmental Fair Day, imploring “residents, businesses, and institutions to support the Fair, as well as make a commitment to undertake programs and projects that enhance our community’s natural environment by reducing the city’s carbon footprint and help build a sustainable community.” This proclamation will be read by Councilman Michael Orr and accepted by Portneuf Valley Environmental Fair Organizing Committee member Hannah Sanger.

The second will establish April 6 as National Service Recognition Day. The proclamation was requested by AmeriCorps, as well as Senior Corps, and “asks citizens to take time to show their appreciation and support for those whose efforts make this community a better place in which to live.” The decree will be read by Councilwoman Heidi Adamson and accepted by Tammy Barlett.

Third up will set the week of April 2 through April 9 as Crime Victims’ Rights Week in Pocatello. The decree will be read by Councilman Roger Bray and states “the city of Pocatello is dedicated to strengthening victims and survivors in the aftermath of crime, building resilience in our communities and our victims responders, and working for justice for all victims and survivors.” The decree was requested by the Pocatello Police Department and will be accepted by Becky Rodriguez, Victim/Witness Coordinator with the department.

The fourth will be read by Council President Steven Brown and declares the month of April to be Civitan Awareness Month, encouraging “residents of Pocatello to actively support and take pride” in the work of Civitans in our community. The proclamation will be accepted by Terry Frederickson representing Bannock Civitans.

The final proclamation of the night will be read by Councilman Jim Johnston and declares April to be Fair Housing Month. The document urges “our citizens and businesses to increase their awareness of the Fair Housing Act, as amended, so that all citizens will receive equal opportunities for housing in our community.” The proclamation was requested by the City’s Community Development Block Grant Advisory Committee and will be accepted by committee chair Stephanie Heaton.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6.p.m.
