Jackson Council Honors Historian

The Jackson City Council has approved changing the name of a City street in honor of a local historian.   Meeting last night, the Council voted to approve changing what is currently named “Vogan Alley” to Logan's Alley.  The change, brought forward by Council member Keith Sweet is intended to honor long-time local historian Larry Cenotto, who's multi-volume  Logan's Alley: Amador County Yesterdays in Pictures and Prose form a foundational text of the County's history.  The Alley runs alongside the historic National Hotel and already has a bronze plaque dedicated to Cenotto, who passed away in 2012.    The Council also approved an application for a State grant for parks and recreation improvements.  Part of recently passed-Prop 68, the grant will be $200,000 and can be used for Park and recreation facilities, either new or existing.   One possible use of the money discussed before the vote was a new lining for the Jackson City pool.  The Council also passed honoring the city's collaboration with the Jackson Rancheria on the rehabilitation and repair of New York Ranch Road, and a resolution announcing the intent to establish a sister city relationship with Herceg Novi, Montenegro.                                                                                                                                       Written by Craig Baracco
