The positions are already in the budget and have been prolonged until now as needed to finish the season.


15.           IS DEPARTMENT- Approval to receive bids for parts and labor to connect the computer room and computer room air conditional unit to the backup generator.

                Carbon County Recreation Department is requesting an additional $2100.00(10%) to the previously budgeted $21,000.00. The item has been brought before the City Council on a previous date but only as a public input item and not as a formal item for motion. If the motion were to be made tonight for the appropriation of the $2100.00, it would then have to come from the Budget Revision in January MOTION. A favorable motion was made by Councilmember McEvoy to approve the 10% increase for Carbon County Recreation. Councilmember Tatton seconded the motion recognizing that it is not budgeted item. An agreement could not be made for reasons of the following votes.


                Councilmember Hanna-Smith- Naye                                 Councilmember Davis-Naye

                Councilmember McEvoy-Aye                                                           Councilmember Tatton-Aye


                Therefore, because it would be an increase to our budget and a decision could not be made by Council with the information given, Mayor Piccolo would like sufficient information collected and returned to the City Council and presented by Councilmember McEvoy for another request.  




Councilmember Hanna-Smith reported the International Days is very organized and ready to go for the weekend of July 27-29th. A schedule is available in the newspaper.




                The next Community Progress meeting is scheduled for the 31st of August. The Yard of The Month awards have been given with the help of Mayor Piccolo and Delores Sandoval.   Adopt A Street Agreements are well under way with Castle Country Youth Center, Carbon Service Unit Girl Scouts, Price Oil Express and Pinnacle Sports on board. Each group has chosen a section to take care as part of volunteering to keep their community clean.       


19.           POWER BOARD-Update


Nick Tatton presented an update for UAMPS activities. The next meeting is on the last Tuesday of the month at 3:30p.m. 



20.           COMMUNITY PLAYGROUND-Update.


The Community Playground is going well with Jeanne McEvoy’s given appreciation for everyone’s hard work and continued support. During construction we would like to have enough police patrol during the evenings to keep an eye on the materials and supplies.  Aleck Shilaos has been notified and will take care of the matter.


After the Kiwanis Derby this year, the winner of the money made a donation to the Community Playground. The winner challenged Mike Dmitrich to match the donation, which he did. The challenge is now to the children with pets during the International Days Pet Contest. All Committee and Chamber members including Mayor Piccolo and the media are invited to attend and provide their support.
