All of the 12 White City Township signs will be in place by this fall and they
are looking at the 1185 E. Serpentine Way Project. We need to all have our Tax
numbers by this month. County is aware of the drainage problems in the area
but the county does not have the funding to fix then this year. Code
Enforcement there is one open case and several have been closed. Discussed the
Turquoise Way property. Health and Safety is the primary concern and of first
importance with the property as noted by Mayor Corroon. There is a voucher
program for the Sanitation Department for the community for the use of
dumpsters. Each voucher is good for two dumpsters. Dumpsters will be in White
City September 15 thru 17. Vouchers for the Communities will be available for
$5300 soon so will be able to go forth with our Township days.
- Mayor Corroon talked about Budget. He feels we have hit the bottom of
economic times and we should see gains. Budget balanced for 2009 but we will
need to work the 2010 Budget. Telecommunication fund lost about $3 million and
sales taxes were down. Interest income is way down. Property taxes are pretty
stable but School District split may cause some increase. There will be a
special Budget meeting on 27 august in the council chambers to explain Budget
to residents. Looking at infrastructure in the unincorporated areas. Bonds or
other ways as well as park improvement and regional parks. Wayne Johnson has
met with Sparta Soccer people to see if the scheduling problems could be
worked out. He feels the discussion should help the problem.

crime report on White City area crime and how inaccurate it is. Jeremy
Christensen made a motion to have a letter written to the State Attorney
General’s Office about the ABC 4 report on crime in the White City area in the
newspaper. The Attorney General’s office logo appeared on the website for the
crime statics, therefore they should stand behind the report. A copy of the

was seconded and approved. Paulina Flint was asked to write the letter.
