- Paulina Flint made a motion to approve the January 6th Minutes. Motion

- Trisha Beck indicated that HB 222 introduced at the House yesterday on
Community Councils but is delayed for a while. Public notice is an issue now
and notice needs to be reintroduced in the House. It will be back on the
agenda for Friday. There is a general agreement on the bill to be passed.

indicated that the audit was in process and should be completed this week.
He indicated he would make out a check for the Website costs before the
meeting was over. Kay Dickerson will send the check to Thomas Ray for his

- Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Officer Report was given by Deputy Brady
Waldron. Deputy Waldrum gave the December crime stats report. Stats will be
on a format similar to face book that we can access online and UPD will not
print out report. There will be a new person as the COP representative.
Officer James Taylor will be introduced in February. Deputy Waldrum will be
an area detective. They have been very busy with the new UPD starting to
replace the Sheriff’s Office.
- West Side Community Council Staff report was given by Greg Schultz. It
is now Legislative time. ACCT House Joint Resolution to be presented shortly
on Community Councils for 25 years of service. Would like as many there as
possible to show support. Bills that require funding are setting idle until
funding is determined. There is a possible boxcar bit of legislation being
promoted by East Millcreek Township that involves a 105% +or – 15% vote to
incorporate or not incorporate. Need to keep tabs on this action. Also we
need a bill opened to get the issue settled on a possible conflict of
interest with council members working on action to help areas incorporate or
not incorporate while serving on councils. A motion was made by Paulina
Flint to have ACCT take action to insure that we as a council can protect
our ability to still get insurance in conjunction with Utah Neighborhoods as
a tax exempt organization. Seconded and approved.
- 7th East Project-Ralph Cooley reported that Harper Construction was the
prime. Sound walls will be on the East side by this fall and North end
construction will be done about September. Replacing utilities and drainage

discuss issues. An open house was held today at Eastmont Elementary from 4
to 7 pm to discuss this project. Concern about the drainage at the bottom of
Larkspur at 7th East.
- Other Legislative Issues-Fly fishing on streams with access to streams.
- New Business- Buried one of the former council members this last week.
He has contacted Wal-Mart, AutoZone, Reams and others about Grants, flyers
and all seem willing to help. We need to get to together and decide what we
want to do. Need to work with Webmaster about posting on website. He is
willing to help, but we just need to let him know. Paulina
Flint-Subcommittees and Bank Accounts -we need to look at how accounts are
handled and closed properly with assets going to the proper areas and
recorded properly in minutes etc.
