3. TREE REMOVAL- David Gerrard and Doug Pincock- Authorization to Remove Sidewalk Trees in Front of Businesses located at 47 N. 100 W.
Gerrard and Doug Pincock requested approval from City Council to remove the
trees in front of their businesses. According to the business owners, the trees
are obstructing visibility of their business signs; snow removal is difficult
and leaves falling in the autumn season creates a mess. The business owners
would like to remove the trees as soon as possible and replace them with some
planters if possible. Councilmember Davis stated that a Forestry and Sidewalk
committee has been formed and will meet soon to discuss the problems that come
with trees and sidewalks in the downtown and residential areas. There are other
concerns besides the one for the two business owners and the committee was
created to address such problems. Mayor Piccolo stated that an ordinance is in
place that addresses this issue. The ordinance needs to be updated and revised
to meet the changing needs of the community and to support the residents and
business owners. Councilmember Hanna-Smith stated that she wrestles with the
idea of removing any tree and would like to have a better understanding of the
problem before making a decision. Councilmember McEvoy stated that Mr. Pincock has
always taken great pride in the appearance of his downtown business. She suggested
having the trees trimmed by

Ben Clement, Carbon County GIS Manager described an addressing system using latitude and longitude and invited Price City to join the project. He stated that traditional addresses are not working well with computers and geo coding. He has been studying different addressing systems and wants to tie the addressing systems of the County and City together. He feels that now is a good time to adopt the system of latitude and longitude addressing and proposes to first change addresses for official government entities which will allow the new generation to grow up using latitude and longitude. This type of addressing is advantageous in dispatching emergency service, annexation, utilities and facility addressing. It would also fit nicely into the GIS system. Mr. Clements stated that not all benefits of the addressing system would be realized right of way. He said that it would be much easier if everyone is on same page and if all of the surrounding government entities approved of the addressing system. MOTION. Councilmember Nielson moved to approve a letter of support for Mr. Clements on this addressing system project. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Hanna-Smith and carried.
McCluskey of the Division of Natural Resources presented an update on the Price
River Enhancement Fuel Reduction project. The project will include the removal
of invasive trees in conjunction with the Price River Enhancement Project path.
Monday, March 3rd, 2008 the project will get started. Councilmember McEvoy
understands the removal of the Tamarisks and Russian Olive trees, but not the
dead and downed wood. Ms. McCluskey stated that removing the downed trees will
provide space for the trail project and remove hazardous fuels that could carry
a fire. The Division of Wildlife Resources will also be working on the project
to protect the Cottonwoods and Willows from beavers. The trailhead project
coincides with this project in cooperation with
of the Price Community Progress Committee presented the parks and cemetery department
