††††††††††††††† Coach Scott Madsen and Coach Dave Paur representing the CEU baseball program presented a funding request to Price City. The request was for maintenance upgrades to the baseball field owned by Price City and used by CEU and many other leagues. The field is used quite frequently and is in need of some repairs and additions. Mr. Madsen stated that he has approached the Carbon County Recreation and Transportation Special Service District (SSD) for funding and was told to check with the Restaurant Tax Committee. Any funding approved would have to be run through the Cityís finance department because Price City owns the baseball field. Mr. Madsen provided the Council with a priority list of things that need to be done at the field. Councilmember Hanna-Smith suggested that Mr. Madsen approach the wish list in phases instead of the entire list at one time. The Council recommended a letter of support from Price City stating that the City would act as the fiscal agent on the project in the event that the money is awarded through the Restaurant Tax Committee, or SSD. Mr. Madsen stated that he will check with the restaurant tax board then report back to Council before he goes back to the SSD. The Council recommended that Mr. Madsen check all of the options before returning to Price City for a possible match in funds. MOTION. Councilmember Davis moved to approve a letter of support for Price City to act as fiscal agent in the event the money is awarded through Restaurant Tax Committee or SSD. Motion seconded by Councilmember Hanna-Smith and carried.
