All were running unopposed, thus clearly the winners. A full 2010 Election report is attached to the minutes for further details. A short discussion was held relative to the problem with several persons who were unable to vote because of various problems and the conclusion was that there were registration problems that needed to be worked out. Ralph Cooley made a motion to accept the Election report. Motion was seconded and approved. Jeremy Christensen made a motion to destroy the ballots. Motion was seconded and approved.
  • The Canvass report meeting was then closed and the Council meeting was resumed

  • 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 approve the report. Motion was seconded and approved.
  • 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.
