  • Deputy Brody Waldram gave the Sheriff’s report and indicated there had been a number of arrests for Drugs and he introduced his supervisor Deputy Stanton Van Wagner.  He indicated the drug traffickers were recruiting Jr. High children. He discussed the article in the news letter on how to protect your home from burglary.  He also requested that we as a community put together what we need help in the area with to help us and they will gear a presentation or information for us.  Some discussion was held on the concern about calling 911 or VECC and the delays that have been involved with the system. There is an issue with the system and is not a problem that the Sheriff’s office can resolve.  They recommended we work with the Mayor and County Council rather than the Sheriff’s Office.  Paulina Flint made a motion to discuss what we as a community council do in regards to the delay problem with VECC.  A discussion was held and it was decided to voice our concerns on the problem.  Paulina made a motion to write a letter to the SLC Mayor and each member of the SLC Council to voice our concerns about the delay problem with VECC and our other concerns and recommend they bring this effort back into the County Sheriff or possibly Unified Fire or simply fix the problem.  Motion was seconded and approved.

  • Jeremy Christensen gave the Treasurer’s report.  Paulina Flint motioned to approve the Treasurer’s report, motion was seconded and approved.

  • LaVar Christensen discussed the problem with funding for county councils and a possible solution to the distribution of the funds.  He recommended that he invite Jeff Allen (cell 870-7366) to the next meeting to present a solution to get the funds to the councils.  He recommended we present a list of our community needs to the county so they may prioritize the funding.
