5. DISCUSSION- (695 E. 500 So.) Dust Issue- by John Hayward
John Hayward presented a request for the Mayor and City Council to review a dust problem that he has at 695 E. 500 So. Mr. Hayward gave the Council a drawing of the location for reference. Because he lives on the corner of 500 South and 700 E., next to a dirt road and wash, his home is constantly filled with dust. Vehicles are using the dirt road as an access road. Neighborhood children are using the wash for dirt bikes, peddle bikes and other off road vehicles for entertainment. The dirt that the vehicles stir up goes directly into Mr. Hayward’s yard and windows of his home. He has asked the children to not drive on the dirt road and to keep the dust down when riding motorcycles. He has also contacted the Police Department on several occasions but by the time the police arrive the kids have left the area. Mr. Hayward would like to see either closure of the 700 East access to alleviate traffic or have the road paved to alleviate the dust. Councilmember Tatton questioned whether the road is even a city street without gravel or asphalt. The road is City property and is located partially in the wash as it is not an access road. Councilmember McEvoy pointed out that even if the road was paved, the dust from the recreational vehicles would not cease. Years ago, wooden barricades were set in place to block the road but were constantly removed. The Mayor and Council understand the problem, but also know that if the road is closed, the dust issue remains along with possible enforcement issues. The Mayor and Council recommend, Gary Sonntag perform a road audit to examine the area and determine whether or not the road is a legitimate street. The use of jersey barricades, signs and some type of road top will also be evaluated. Then the zoning of the area can be evaluated by the Community Director for possible use of the road and area. MOTION. Councilmember McEvoy moved to place the item on unfinished business and to have a road audit completed on the street. Motion seconded by Councilmember Nielson Motion carried.
6. PEDESTRIAN SAFETY PROGRAM 2007- Site Selection and Funding Application
Utah Legislature, during the past session, has provided funding for the State
Pedestrian Safety Program, on State Highways (primarily the placement of
new sidewalk). The State program provides 75% funding with a local match of
25%. The amount of funding this year, for the four Counties in the Price
District, is $8,917.
· SR 6, SR 55 for pedestrian safety.
· Highway 10 (from 600 South to the interchange on the west side)
· Highway 10-1250 South (west side extension towards Kilfoyle)
· Highway 10 (front of Juvenile facility)
· Section by Eastern Utah Produce (extension)
· Gap by Market Express Chevron - north side of road.
· Bicycle pathway project (applying for)
McEvoy would prefer to see the entry ways into the City completed before other areas
are addressed. The section near Eastern
The Main Street Program contracts need to be approved before the final budget is complete for available funding. The funding could then be used for possible contracted work for the downtown projects. The state is no longer funding staff members, only projects. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved to approve the contract document forms. Motion seconded by Councilmember McEvoy. Motion Carried.

25. PRWID- Update by Councilmember Tatton

26. INTERNATIONAL DAYS-Update by Councilmember Nielson.
The allocation of money from fundraisers and the amount left in the budget from the previous year was discussed for clarification. Both nights of movies plus additional activities would be the desire of the committee to allow the event to grow each year. The budgeted amount is $12,000 plus donations and fundraisers to alleviate the costs. Funds that are raised will allow money to be left in the budget for next year’s event. This year’s event could use the budgeted amount as well as the fundraiser amount to host an even more successful event. To offset costs, advertising is offered during both movie nights. Sponsorship funds could go directly to the movie budget because sponsorship involves the community. If it weren’t for the community assistance, this event would not be as successful as it is now. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved to allow sponsorship to be used in excess of the budgeted amount with all other areas of the event remaining in place and staying the same. The sponsorship funds would be used first, then the budgeted funds. This would be a trial funding project for the 2007 year. Motion seconded by Councilmember Davis and carried.
