- Meeting called to order by Troy Blundell, Chair, there was a Quorum.
- Welcome, Introductions and Pledge of Allegiance lead by Kay Dickerson proceeded.
- Paulina Flint reviewed the tour of White City area with SLC Council members Jeff Allen and Marvin Hendrickson that preceded the meeting. We reviewed areas that involved flooding issues (Storm water issues), the north rim of Dimple Dell Park, reviewed homes and yards which may need future help and areas which may involve safe sidewalk issues to schools. We looked at Bear Park for capacity studies and review the master plan. Reviewed some areas that involved speeding issues and some areas that may involve the Neighbor to Neighbor Program. Went to the south rim of the Park to review were a park was to be put and what the future might be. Reviewed areas which may need road milling or curb and gutter repair. Looked at the area south of 10600 South which is some horse property areas and new homes. Looked at the Willow Canyon Area to show it’s proximity to White City. Marv Hendrickson talked about the concern the SLC Council has for the needs of many of the unincorporated areas in the county and the need for us to prioritize our needs so they can help. We talked about the two lots on 7th East and Sego Lily Drive.
- Kay Dickerson presented the April 2nd, 2008 minutes. Don Patocka made a motion to approve the April minutes. Motion seconded and approved.
- Jeremy Christensen presented the treasurer’s report for March and April since the bank statement was not available in time for the March meeting. Paulina Flint made a motion to approve the treasure’s report. Motion seconded and approved.
- Greg Schultz reported on the West Side Community Council activity for last month. The major effort has been in connection with the HB40 Survey. Dan Jones survey has indicated the margin of error should be around 3%. This is indicating a good response and indicated that about 80% had heard about the survey being done. Most of their effort has been looking at what is called the East-West study or getting Trax passengers from the West side to the East side stations. 13th East is proceeding with a grade separated crossing at Dimple Dell. UTA is looking at fare hikes. 90th South Project will be providing access to the new Soccer Stadium and will involve construction for several weeks. Discussed the possible need for a safe place to dispose of prescription drugs in the White City area.
- Troy Blundell made a motion to move SLC Sheriff’s report from item 16 up to 6. Motion seconded and approved.
- Deputy Brody Waldram gave a report on the activity in the area for last month and most of the activity was in Carnation- Violet area just off 10600 S. Some activity with forged ID in the area and a need to watch what you put in your outgoing mail. If we want a night out with crime we need to get a date soon.
- Paulina Flint discussed the ACCT report. Most of the activity was to advertize the HB40 survey that was taking place. The next item of business will be to get the results of the survey out. Hang Glider Park moving ahead at good speed. County looking at drafting a Water Source protection bill.
- Paulina Flint discussed the effort to get the SLC Volunteer form modified. ACCT and County Representatives are working the issue. It appears the effort is getting to a possible solution.
- Troy Blundell discussed the need to get someone appointed to the Planning and Zoning Committee and we will see if we can get this completed.
- Kay Dickerson noted that the Dimple Dell Advisory Board could use some volunteers to serve on the board. Right now the board is heavy on equestrian people and needs to better balance with other park users.
- Jeremy Christensen reported on the need to get someone on the Community Advisory Board but due to Capt. Samson’s retiring from the Sheriff’s office it has delayed him getting the details he needs but we need someone that can spend quite a bit of time working with the Sheriff and can report to the WCCC. If you know anyone let us know.
- Jeremy Christensen made a motion to appoint Rob Frailey as Chairman of the Bear Park Committee that will help us with scheduling and use of the park. Motion seconded and approved.
- Troy Blundell discussed the need for the Executive Committee to meet and amend the bylaws and incorporation papers to be consistent with the Township Ordnance. This was done to give notice to all that they were meeting to recommend changes to these documents.
- Troy Blundell mentioned that County Atlas’ are available and if you would like one contact your representative to get a copy. Website has this notice on the site.
- Paulina Flint discussed the need to help other unincorporated areas of the County getting organized to help in not being picked up into cities. Sandy Hills Community will possibly need some of this help in getting their counsels going. Don Patocka made a motion to support the adjoining areas with meetings and flyers to get their Counsels started. Seconded and approved.
- Troy Blundell discussed on the HB40 that we need to remove the signs.
- Paulina Flint made a motion to request a prescription drug box at the Sheriff’s substation. Motion seconded and approved.
- Jeremy Christensen made a motion to purchase an inexpensive digital camera for the Chairman of the Bear Park Committee to use in documenting the activity at the Park. Motion seconded and approved.
