1. This work session of the City Council of the City of Cedar Hills, having been posted throughout the City and the press notified, was called to order at 6:13 p.m. by Mayor McGee.
2. Noticed agenda items for this Regular Council Meeting (6:14 p.m.)
• Metering Largest Water Users: C. Perry received some e-mails from a company that has offered free trial meters low quotes ($150/meter). C. Wright would like non-pressurized irrigation (PI) users audited. C. Richardson suggested charging everyone for PI, even if they don’t use it.
• RAP Tax: The RAP tax is being researched, but Staff was not able to get all the information together for the November election.
• Bonneville Shoreline Trail Grant: The State did not approve the City’s request to change the phasing of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. The grant money is lost if there is any change to the proposed project. Mayor McGee said that the Metropolitan Water District has said that there is an easement. The Council feels like the City should go ahead with the plans. Eric Johnson, City Attorney, can send the property owner a letter stating that after reviewing the records the Cities has determined that there is an easement and invite him to meet with the City.
• 4800 West: Mayor McGee said that UDOT is moving forward on the first phase of 4800 West. Phase 1 runs from State Street to the I-15 interchange. The State and Utah County want 4800 West to be a state road. The Phillips Edison development dedicated 96 feet and the State needs 106 feet. In order to make it a state road, the State wants to trade Canyon Road. Mayor McGee pointed out that the State has not maintained Canyon Road and will need to bring the road up to standard before the trade. C. Perry pointed out that improvements should include curb and gutter and take into account ongoing maintenance costs. C. Richardson asked whether the state wanted to trade Canyon Road with Cedar Hills or the county.
• SR-92: Mayor McGee said that there are thirteen lights proposed for SR-92 and two separated grades are also proposed. The proposal includes five lanes from American Fork Canyon to 6400 West, and seven lanes from 6400 West to the I-15 interchange.
• Emergency Supplies: Mayor McGee said Utah County has purchased five-gallon, freeze-dried food buckets that would feed one person for 30 days for each of its employees to be stored in a county warehouse. This would allow county employees to come to work in case of a disaster. Mayor McGee suggested the City do something similar.
2. This meeting was adjourned at 6:54 p.m. by Mayor McGee.
