Blackfoot School District 55 board members have implemented a plan to move forward in the process of replacing former superintendent Scott Crane, who resigned in June. The plan includes the implementation of a 15-member committee made up of teachers, administrators, students, business people and ethnic leaders, along with a series of public hearings within the district to gain community input on what they would like to see in a new superintendent.
The railroad crossing on Highway 91 toward the south end of Blackfoot will be smooth by the end of the week. Workmen with the Union Pacific Railroad are replacing the crossing on Highway 91 between Lincoln St. and Grant St.
Only this section of Highway 91, between Lincoln and Grant Streets will be closed from Tuesday morning (today) to Friday evening.
To avoid construction, people can travel on S. Meridian, Shilling Ave. or any number of cross streets, said Mayor Mike Virtue. The businesses along Highway 91 will remain open.
