1. COUNCILMEMBERS REPORT-The Mayor and
Councilmembers presented an update on the activities and functions in which
they have participated.
2. CARBON COUNTY
HEALTH FAMILIES COALITION- Request of $2,500
Seals, Lisa Branch and Melissa Hamilton were present to explain the request
from the Carbon County Health Families Coalition’s (CCHFC) for a $2,500.00 donation
from Price City. The group provides learning
activities, crisis prevention and intervention services and many other programs
for the community. Bonnie Seals stated that the request for a donation from Price City
would be used to supplement funding for the Carbon High Family Night and to
provide flexible funding for Price
City families. The group
receives funding from different agencies including United Way, the Carbon School
District and Carbon County and needs all the funding they can receive in order to
continue the program. Mrs. Seals spoke of the many ways the program helps the
children of the community. The group has provided everything from food,
training and educational resources for parents to a pair of glasses for a child
whose family could not afford them. The Mayor and Council would all like to see
the $2,500 be budgeted for this request as it benefits the community and its children.
The Council expressed appreciation for the work being done by the CCHFC and
commended the group for all of their hard work and dedication. Pat Larsen
stated that Price
City is in the process of
a budget revision and will add the item to the budget for approval at the next
Council meeting. Mrs. Seals stated that DCFS is the fiscal agent for the money
and each agency that participates receives a balance sheet at the end of the
year. She stated that the money is well managed and accounted for and that the
group is always looking for matching grants. Mayor Piccolo invited the group to
attend the Homeless Coordinating meetings held each month at the Golden Rule
Mission in Helper. This item will be included in the public hearing on June 25th,
2008 with the budget revision. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved to approve the request
and have it added to the budget revision. Motion seconded by Councilmember
McEvoy and carried.
DAYS CONTRACT- Den & Jen Inflatable Bouncers, Dennis Slavensky
and Jennifer Slavensky were present to discuss a proposal contract with Price City
for their involvement with International Days 2008. Mr. Slavensky requested
that the contract limit the limits of liability insurance coverage that to
$100,000 per accident with a $300,000 aggregate. He stated that the State of Utah only requires a
business such as Den & Jen’s to carry $100,000/$300,000 limits and not the $1
million dollar coverage that the City is requiring. He stated that his business
is adequately insured to provide a safe environment for the event and both the
State of Utah
and his insurance carrier ISERA (International Special Events Recreation
Association) agree. Dennis stated that his business should not be compared to a
carnival with steel, motors, engines and moving parts as his business is
inflatable rides and he was offended that the City would do so. He stated that
his business is claim free and committed to achieving zero occurrences by never
overlooking unsafe conditions. Mr. Slavensky stated that he will not participate
in the 2008 International Days event if the insurance rates do not fall within
the $100,000/$300,000 limits that he has now. The Mayor and Council expressed
appreciation to Mr. and Mrs. Slavensky for presenting their viewpoint to the
Council. Price City had checked with the City’s insurance
carrier and were told that the insurance coverage
limits of $1 million per occurance/$2 million aggregate was not extreme.
Because the International Days event is held on Price City
property, the City must have adequate insurance coverage in place to mitigate
potential risks. Nick Sampinos sympathizes with the Slavensky’s and hoped that
they understood the City’s standpoint on liability. Mr. Slavensky stated that
no other county or city has required the million dollar coverage from them. John
Daniels stated that smaller cities and counties are under the Utah League
insurance protection and do not have the same liability as Price City
does. Nick Sampinos said that it was up to the Mayor and City Council to
determine whether they are comfortable with this level of exposure and whether to
change the insurance coverage limits to accommodate Den & Jen’s request.
Mayor Piccolo stated that this item needs more information and consideration
and will be finalized at the next Council meeting. A final decision will be
based on fact and will be fair and equal for all vendors involved in future
City events. MOTION.
Councilmember Tatton moved to have a Committee discuss the item and bring a recommendation
to the next City Council meeting on June 25, 2008 for a final decision. Motion
seconded by Councilmember Nielson. Councilmember Hanna-Smith asked Mr.
Slavensky if the June 25th date would work for his business
schedule. Dennis stated that he would wait for the decision but would probably not
work the event if the insurance rates are not reduced to the $100,000/$300,000
limits. Mayor Piccolo apologized to the Slavensky’s if they were offended in
any way and promised to evaluate this item with the utmost concern as this
information is undiscovered territory and needs to be reviewed. Mr. Slavensky
requested the Council make a final decision tonight. Councilmembers were
comfortable with the motion previously made and did not take further action.

Price City will not charge labor costs.
