- Meeting called to order by Paulina Flint, Vice-Chair, there was a
quorum. Troy Blundell was absent for personal reasons. Welcomed visitors
attending meeting Don & Janice Dumas, Nancy Moorman, SL County Planning
Office and Sheriff Jim Winder. Pledge was lead by Paul Smith.
- UPD Report. Brooks Green of the UPD made a report on the police calls in
the area for the month of August calls-206, cases-77, offenses-79. Offenses
are down but generally pick up in the next couple of months as the weather
warms up. Most calls were vandalism or theft. Residents are aware of the
Officers present in the area and the calls are reducing the crime. They were
pleased with the Township Days celebration and everyone enjoyed the event.
Sheriff Winder reported on a caller on Carnation that reports numerous
speeding complaints on that street between 700 East and 900 East. They
indicated that the speeding has been occurring for the last 3 months. He has
had Officers investigate these complaints and have not found any excess
number of speeders. Most of those, if any, were only a couple of MPH’s over
the speed limit. Other residents in the area do not seem to share the same
concern. They are currently reviewing the results of the survey that was
taken recently on Carnation Drive about the speed calming measures that the
resident would recommend as soon as this is completed there will be some
recommendations made as to what will be done. He answered several other
questions about some of the residents’ concerns about small motorcycles and
scooters. If they are gasoline powered they need to be licensed. Electric or
battery powered units do not. Parental oversight still needs to be
maintained. Residents are concerned about the problem of not being able to
see these smaller units. He responded to some concerns citizens have about
the UPD tax and his comments were that the tax increase has not been due to
the Police tax but other items. There have been no salary adjustments (3
Years) in the department until this year and it will not create an increase
in our taxes from the adjustment.

National Guard to form a covenant with the community to recognize the
sacrifice and service of those deployed in all the services past and
present. As well as, build a partnership to support the families to help
mitigate the impacts of deployments. This would involve assigning a team to
help them work with those who are serving and past members to strengthen the
community. They would like to have a signing ceremony and have newsletters
to show our support. This is done in other communities and would like our
support. Don Patocka made a motion to form a committee and to get involved
in the community covenant. Seconded and approved.

very appreciative of the SL County looking into the matter he brought to the
