With the current Real Estate market, interest has increased from developers to build new housing units- including housing units being built within the Airport Impact Area. 3 development proposals are currently underway with more expected. To minimize future impacts to McCall Municipal Airport, Staff has created an Avigation Easement Template to be used to simplify the process of creating future agreements.

He stated that the State of Idaho is still in Stage 4 with stay healthy guidelines. Idaho is up to 4790 weekly cases; this time last year we had 3,287 cases which puts us about 1500 cases higher than last year. The current four week forecast for the State of Idaho is about 6000 cases a week, MCCALL CITY COUNCIL Page 10 of 12 August 26,2021 Regular Meeting which are very close to what they were October 2020. The bi-weekly case rate in Valley County is currently at 49.5.Valley County is still in the category of high transmission rate with more than 201 cases per 100,000 which is .002% of the Valley County population. Covid related illnesses are still responsible for 28% of all hospitalizations currently in the St. Luke's system statewide. Two weeks prior it was at 17%. There has been a slight uptick in the vaccination rate of about 1.5%. Currently the state of Idaho has available 64 ICU beds; two weeks ago, there were 153 and there are 526 ventilators available compared to 562 two weeks prior. There is some concern with only 64 beds being available statewide. Information from the Department of Health and Welfare (DHW) is that the ICU Covid patients are at an all-time high for the State of Idaho. The state is calling for volunteers to assist in hospitals with various jobs. The state has also asked for federal assistance for staffing in hospitals. The DHW stated that staffing continues to be the main issue and driving factor of hospital capacity. He stated that due to the capacity and staffing issues there are sections of hospitals that are closed, and many of the surgeries have been cancelled because there is not sufficient staffing available to address those surgeries. There is a staffing shortage not only within Idaho hospitals but within hospitals throughout the United States. Chief Williams then updated Council regarding the McCall mask metrics stating that there are still two of the metrics not being met. The vaccination rate is currently at 60.5% our goal is 65%. The bi-weekly case rate metric is to be below five, and Valley County is 49.5, 10 times the bi-weekly targeted case rate.He stated that the numbers are like where the statistics were at in January of 2021 at about 48.5. The percent of positivity metric is to be below five, and currently Valley County is at 10. Chief Williams then updated the Council on city facilities,employees,and masks.He stated that the City's HR Manager, Traci Malvich received some information from other Cities and Counties in the state. She learned that Bonner County, City of Eagle, Elmore County, City of Post Falls, City of Nampa, Twin Falls County, City of Coeur d'Alene, Kootenai County do not require masks, nor do they require vaccination. The City of Boise requires masks in all city facilities indoors, within city vehicles, and if you're not in an office by yourself, they mandate mask use;however, they currently do not mandate vaccination. The Cities of Eagle, Post Falls, and Nampa passed resolutions that the city will not require vaccinations.The cities of Eagle and Post Falls also included no mask mandates in their resolutions. Council Member Nelson was interested to know what surveys are saying regarding masking. He also commented on the school board and parent sentiments regarding masking. Council Member Nielsen commented that the City could be leaders and require all city staff to be vaccinated, he felt that there should be some leadership coming from somewhere in the state. There was some discussion regarding 98% of infections are unvaccinated. Vaccines are available for anyone who wants it. Some cities and employers are requiring vaccination. There was caution that requiring staff to be vaccinated could be a slippery slope and there could be some vacancies as a result. Council Member Nelson commented regarding taking a leadership role, he would like the Council to think about the aggregate sources of information and how do we get the information out to the public. He also wanted to know how the Council could define their leadership role. He stated that MCCALL CITY COUNCIL Page 11 of 12 August 26,2021 Regular Meeting finding accurate information is very challenging. He wanted the Council to be viewed as proactive rather than silent. He also stated that the number of beds available will go to zero soon,then choices will have to be made. The hospitals will have to decide who gets a bed and who does not if the rate of infection continues to rise at the current rate. Upcoming Meetings Schedule Discussion Council discussed upcoming meetings.

We now get two or three nights a week of sleep without loud intermittent noise levels that exceed 95DB. Backup alarms, diesels running, wooden pallets tossed to the concrete,trucks rear ending the loading dock etc.All between 3AM and 5:30AM. At age seventy and after a recent heart attack. Man its nice to get a little rest at least part of the week. As McCall grows economically and culturally, mitigation and remediation of current intermittent noise polluters particularly impulse noise pollution must cease. Studies clearly show noise upsets the cardiovascular system and affects circadian rhythm. Additionally, productivity declines. For instance, in my case I can not generate the energy needed to keep a part time job working on the Idaho and maintain a quality of life. .
