  • 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.
