1. MINUTES - October 25, 1995
Councilmember Jensen moved that the minutes of the October 25, 1995 meeting be approved as written. Motion seconded by Councilmember Frandsen and carried.
2. SWIMMING POOL WATER TEMPERATURE - Bunny Fox
Cordelia (Bunny) Fox and Nancy Martin were at the meeting to request the temperature of the water at the indoor swimming pool be set at 84 degrees. She realizes that it is an old facility and the City has spent large amounts of money to maintain it. In addition, the temperature of the showers should be a steady temperature. The exit steps and bars on the east side of the pool need to be repaired, as well as repair of the phone in the pool area. A phone in the pool area enables them to call the lifeguard to check the water temperature before they leave their homes.
Councilmember Jensen reported that the burner in the boiler has recently been replaced and some rather extensive repairs completed. Since the new boiler was installed, they have not been able to raise the temperature of the water above 82 degrees. They found that the pumps and valves are also inoperable and need to be replaced. An item on tonight's agenda is to request $20,000 to replace these items. In addition to the burner, the City has replaced the controls at a cost of $20,000. They are hopeful that once the pumps and valves are replaced, that all the problems will be solved. Cobb Johnson reported that the telephone has been repaired, but it has been placed outside the door because the chlorine deteriorates the plastic. The exit steps and bars referred to above were repaired at the time the pool was replastered. The Council thanked Mrs. Fox and Ms. Martin for their input.
3. AWARD PRESENTATION - Kevin Mele, Guy Adams
Police Lieutenant Ed Shook reported that there was a recent incident where an officer from the Price City Police Department and an officer from another department were instrumental in saving a man's life. He recognized both officers by presenting Price Police Officer Kevin Mele with a certificate and Price City Police Department pin for "Meritorious Service" and Carbon County Deputy Guy Adams with a "Certificate of Appreciation". The Council congratulated both officers.
4. SUN ADVOCATE - Ad For Christmas Greetings

5. INEZ VALDEZ - Request For Upright Cemetery Stone Approved
Inez Valdez requested permission to place an upright stone in an area in the Price City Cemetery designated for flat stones. Due to a limited amount of side-by-side plots available at the cemetery, she was not able to purchase a plot in the upright section. Councilmember Frandsen reported that this is on the borderline of the upright stone section, and there is only one other grave on this row. She moved that authorization be given to allow upright stones for this row of plots. Motion seconded by Councilmember Williams and carried.

The Commission gave a favorable recommendation contingent upon signing and recording a corrected plat, Letter of Credit and Development Improvement Agreement, and the necessary easements. Gary Sonntag reported that the emergency access off of 300 West was discussed. This property is currently owned by Carbon County. He contacted the County about the maintenance of this alley and is pursuing the possibility of the City acquiring the property. This alley is not shown on the plat, and the boundary description is not in order. Councilmember Williams moved that preliminary and final approval be given and that a conditional use permit be issued per the above contingencies. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler.
12. U.S. POST OFFICE SNORKEL LANE CHANGE - Preliminary and
Final Approval, Conditional Use Permit
Councilmember Williams reported that the Planning and Zoning Commission reviewed the request of the U.S. Post Office for construction of a drive through service contingent upon a use and maintenance agreement for the right-of-way and the public sidewalk. Gary Sonntag presented a report and reviewed the alternatives that were considered. The option that appears to have the least impact would be to improve the drive-through at the present location of the mail boxes. This drive through will encroach back into the sidewalk area and not into the street. Only one parking stall will be eliminated. The drive through will enable customers to drop mail into the mail boxes without leaving their cars. The pedestrian side walk will be relocated along the same route. The present sidewalk is 15' wide and will be remodeled to 5' wide. Councilmember Williams moved that this option be approved per the above contingencies and that a conditional use permit be issued.
