' . <br /> <br />The group was informed this is the first complaint against <br />either one of our peace officers during their two years of service <br />and the City has enough conficence in them to uphold them in the <br />performance of their duty. ' <br /> <br />The next matter of business was the replacing of someone to <br />fill 'the unexpired term of Dick Wheeler who has moved out of the <br />City limits and has resigned as City Councilman.

It was the decision of the Council that the dog <br />was viscious, a menace to the community and something should be done <br />about it immediately~ The Clerk was advised to take the necessary <br />steps to dispose of the dog. ' <br /> <br />Attorney Joe Anderson was asked to revise the dog leash laws <br />and make them more complete, and to compile it in the form of an <br />ordinance. He was aiso asked to pr~pare an ordinance outlawing the <br />,use of fire arms and B.B. guns within the City limits of Ammon. <br /> <br />The City council agreed to purchase a new shirt for Deputy <br />Elllngford to replace the one destroyed when he was attacked by the <br />Garrett Rice dog. <br /> <br />The duties of the Police department were discussed.. In the <br />opinion of the CouncLl they are spending too much time out side the <br />City limits. They were asked to confine their sercie within the <br />city limits of Ammon. Only in case of emergency should they <br />leave the confines of Ammon, and when it is necessary to answer an <br />emergency call from the Bonneville County Sheriff.s Office there <br />should be a written report of it. <br /> <br />Dermont Ricks, Clerk, was asked to write Roland T. Romrell a <br />letter informing him that he ,will be required to pay $200.00 per <br />month rent starting July 1, 1964, and continuing until his equip- <br />ment is moved out of the City Building. <br /> <br />The City approved a street light to be installed in front of <br />the new City Office for better lighting and protection. <br />Meeting adjourned at 11:45 P.M. <br /> <br />/~5j?L <br />
