Three Proclamations to be Read at Pocatello City Council Meeting


A trio of proclamations are set to be read at Thursday’s meeting of the Pocatello City Council.

The first is a joint proclamation that will see Mayor Brian Blad joining with Chubbuck Mayor Kevin England and the Bannock County Commissioners to proclaim September 18 to 24 as “Kind Community Week.” The proclamation urges “citizens to be more than bystanders when it comes to kindness” and “make the choice every day to be kind and integrate kindness into your daily lives.” Courtney Fisher, President and Founding Director of Kind Community requested the edict and Councilmember Heidi Adamson will read it.  

The second will establish September 2017 as National Recovery Month. Requested by Kevin Wakeman with the Recovery Fest Committee, the proclamation seeks to raise awareness of mental illness and addiction disorders. Also, the decree calls upon the people of Pocatello to observe the month “with appropriate programs, activities, and ceremonies supporting this year’s theme, ‘Join the Voices for Recovery: Strengthen Families.’” Councilmember Michael L. Orr will read the proclamation.

Lastly, the third proclaims September to be Assistance Dog Month. The proclamation urges “the citizens of Pocatello to become educated on the importance of assistance dogs and their significance in our community.” The decree was requested by Dr. Mike Riley on behalf of local service animal supporters and will be read by Councilmember Roger Bray.

Thursday’s meeting begins at 6 p.m.
