- Jeremy Christensen gave the Treasurer’s report for October. He mentioned
that we have a minimal balance. The 2011 budget has $5000 with South East
Township days at $8000. We still had not received funding from other
councils. We spent about $950 for Elections. Paul Smith made a motion to

- Sheriff’s Report. James Taylor of the Sheriff’s Department made his
report. They had 158 calls with 78 cases; this was down from last month.
- Salt Lake County Mayor’s Office-Bev Uipi indicated that most of her
effort has been working with the Councils on the elections and their
deadlines. Budgets for the councils have been submitted and they are the
same as last year. Granite Township vote did not pass. Have collected
priorities from all Councils and will come back on the funding. Discussed
the following items: Sidewalk along 9400 South on the North side of the
street at the intersection to the Ski interconnects. Poor visibility coming
on and off 9400 South to Poppy Lane in the East bound lanes. Problem with
Sandy and SL County ownership of street. No one wants to take ownership of
pedestrian and traffic problems. Three way Stops at Buddlea and Larkspur,
also Larkspur and Zinnia are of big concern to school crossings at these
locations. Ralph Cooley will write a letter to the County about the problem.
- New Business- Greg Schultz mentioned the Commemorative Street Naming
Draft Document and was wondering if we have any comments on the document. It
takes 75% approval of owners on the street to get approval and property
owners on the street would share cost. There is already and ordnance for
renaming streets so why do we need a new ordnance? Jeremy Christensen made a
motion to recommend accepting County Councils recommendation to accept the
existing ordnance and make technical changes to include commemorative
changes. Motion seconded and approved. Jazz Tickets will be made available
to Councils in Blocks of seats if desired.
- Meeting was adjourned at 8:07 pm.
