City commission waives restrictive covenants

POLSON — In a short meeting on April 15, the Polson City Commissioners approved a waiver of the restrictive covenants to LaVista Overlook. This waiver said the city doesn’t have any interest in approving or disapproving further restrictive covenants, according to Polson City Attorney James Raymond.

In other business, the commissioners approved Resolution No. 1043 to annex 1007 11 St. E., the home of Sandra and Weston MacDonald.

Commissioners also agreed to a golf board recommendation to donate one season golf pass to the Finley Point-Yellow Bay Fire Department for a raffle.  

In his comments, Polson City Manager Todd Crossett expressed what everyone was thinking: sorrow about the victims of the

bombings in Boston and thoughts and prayers for their families.

Crossett also thanked the Polson, Finley Point and Ronan fire departments for their work on the house fire in Polson. He thanked community members who were stepping up and helping out the Donnegans, who lost their home to a fire April 2. 

Work on Skyline Drive started in earnest on April 15, Crossett said.

Requests for proposals have gone out for the west deck project and the trail from Sacajawea Park to Riverside Park, Crossett added.  

Commissioner John Campbell asked Crossett about warranty work on the Streetscape work, and Crossett replied that since the contractor had not come out last year, the warranty was extended throughout the winter. The city engineer will get in touch with the contractor to schedule a date for a walk-through.

Commissioners scheduled the first meeting of the city manager search committee for Monday, April 29, at 5 p.m. in commission chambers.
