  • Park Comments and Pool Updates-Mayor Betty Heater.
  1. City of Kamiah Riverfront Park-As a result of the floods that Kamiah sustained at the Riverfront Park, the grounds were badly damaged. The leadership for Kamiah was able to secure FEMA funding to Restore and to Beautify the park.  It is very important that the grounds are safe and inviting for all residents and visitors that frequent our Riverfront Park throughout the year.  The grass is growing in nicely and we are hopeful that the Riverfront Park will be open and safe for everyone to use and enjoy by the beginning of July.
  2. City of Kamiah Pool Restoration Project-The pool project has received formal approval from building plan review. Reconstruction of the pool will begin very soon and the city, UCCF, and the Save the Pool groups will finally see this dream for Kamiah come true.  We will continue fundraising efforts to reach the finish line together. The pool will be a tremendous asset for our community and will also bring visitors from our surrounding communities.   This will undoubtedly bolster our local economy in a very meaningful way. 
  3. Lastly, from Mayor Betty Heater-We are down a Councilmember, and everyone is asked to put their feelers out there for someone who wants to make a difference and be a part of our community. Please come to City Hall to pick up a form and we will gladly review it.  Thank you…
