Ken Cromar: Mr. Cromar commented on an article by Ron Harris predicting the Asian tsunami. The same man also predicted an earthquake along the Wasatch Front. There has already been a landslide and shifting soils in Cedar Hills. Several months ago, Mr. Cromar invited Ron Harris to speak at American Heritage School. In his presentation, Mr. Harris said that the Wasatch Front will have an earthquake, and now is the window of opportunity to get prepared. Mr. Cromar said that he feels that there should be no building on the bench by the landslide and said it was a mistake. He is worried for the safety of the homes and residents. He handed out DVDs he had prepared. He is willing to participate in community preparedness in any way. He suggested the Council take this information and start forming a plan and committees. Kim Holindrake said that information from the Lone Peak Public Safety District will be presented at the next Work Session and they have been involved in the emergency preparedness.

See handouts. C. Bowman noted that there is no change in the cost, this is just a contract technicality that needed to be addressed. C. Perry explained that the EPA requires the City to meet certain requirements, such as education. For small cities to meet those standards in a cost-effective manner, they have formed an interlocal agreement. C. Perry said that any changes to that agreement need to be approved.
