The County will be meeting near term to discuss Snow removal, Tree maintenance, Flood control and others about 14 August. New street lights are being installed that are LEDís and really make a difference. Greg Schulz mentioned that the Police Fee now show on our taxes as a Municipal Fee and may be lower than it was with the two fees before. Paulina Flint says it is shown on as tax rather than a fee. Paul Smith mentioned that with the mild winter there should have reduced their cost and the residual could be used this year.
  • Don Dumas a resident on Amber Lane wanted to discuss an issue with the Council. The issue is operating a business in the Township that is posing a hazard to the residents. A neighbor is operating a business of redoing outdoor furniture in the backyard without proper spray facilities. They were spraying lacquer in the open air. He has contacted County Planning Curtis Woodward and the business has been issued a business license to do the work in the area. They have also been issued a conditional use permit in Midvale to operate their business. They are now moving their business to another area. There was a possible concern about the effect on the water at a nearby well in White City but it has now been shown to be out of the influence zone.
  • Todd Draper Planning and Zoning-There will be an agenda item on the next SL Council meeting about Best Practices. The Unincorporated County model will start with: 1) Transmission Pipe Line Ordnances and underground lines. 2) Planned Unit Development. 3) Electronic Message Center Signs.
