Sv Council Meetings Moving To Town Hall


The Town of Star Valley council meetings are once again on the move.

Starting Feb. 1, council meetings will be held at town hall, 3675 E. Highway 260, and no longer at the Lamplighter RV Park recreation room.

The latest change for the bi-weekly meetings marks the fourth venue change in the past few years.

The meetings were once held at a church and then the former town hall offices before moving to Lamplighter.

Town Attorney/Manager Tim Grier explained the council decided it no longer needed to use the larger Lamplighter space since the meetings are normally only attended by a few residents and members of the press.

Moving the meetings to town hall will also save the town $50 a meeting, which it was paying the owners of Lamplighter.

Additionally, staff will no longer have to haul over audio and recording equipment.

Audio has always been a concern at the Lamplighter since the meetings were moved there in April. The expansive space makes it difficult for audience members to hear council discussion.

At town hall, the meeting room is small, so audio should no longer be a concern, Grier said.

For meetings where a larger turnout is expected and space may be an issue, Grier said they would open up the meeting rooms downstairs at town hall and broadcast the meeting.

And if needed, the town could hold meetings free at the Gila County Maintenance Yard or county building in Payson.
