  • The West Side Community Council report was given by Greg Schultz.  Greg presented LaVar Christensen a former State Representative to discuss the activity going on in the current Legislative sessions.  He was very complimentary about the position the WCCC has taken on the Township issue and the development that needs to take place in the White City Area.  He recommends that we prioritize our recommendations for development in the White City Area.  We need to continue to work on the Township future actions.  We indicated that the Bowery and parking in the park and current list be used.  We also discussed the possible annexation issues be addressed.  Greg discussed the current “Hot Buttons” at the current Legislative session that continue to be addressed HB75, HB76, SB45, SB48, SB71 and Local Sheriff’s District/UPD. A proposal was made by Paul Smith to go on record that the WCCC officially opposes HB 48 and 71, proposal was seconded and approved.

  • The report from the Mayor’s office by Bev Uipi was changed due to Bev being ill.  Troy Wood from SLC Planning and Development introduced himself as the new person to work with WCCC.  He may be contacted at twood@slco.org or 301-1545.              

  • Paulina Flint discussed the ACCT report.  This discussion covered the County Volunteer Forms, Ethical Conduct Form and County funding for WCCC Administration costs and in general it was agreed that the WCCC were not County employees or volunteers but were elected positions from the community and it should not be necessary to sign these forms and that the WCCC would not expect funding from the County based on these requirements. A motion was made by Don Patocka to Deny funding from SLC that would create Bureaucratic Council and have the money go to work for the infrastructure of White City.  It was recommended to draft a letter to SL County Council and SLC Mayor’s office saying we appreciate your caring so much for White City to make the offer but would prefer the funding go into the infrastructure of White City and not to the Council.  Motion seconded and approved.

  • Paulina Flint discussed possible activities for fundraisers to gain assets for operation of WCCC, such as, printing, copies, newsletter, etc.  A possible “flea market” or carnival in the summer at Bear park. Include this information in News Letter.
