7. WATER ISSUE- Area Around 100 South 400-500 East- Vicky Tamllos
Vicky Tamllos presented an issue regarding water and flooding problems around the area of 100 South and 400-500 East. She described what she thought were the area’s water problems which included: plugged gutters and grates which has caused a buildup of silt in gutters and on lawns causing cracked driveways and lifted sidewalks. Ms. Tamllos stated that the problem stems not just from storm and irrigation water but from a blockage in the City’s underground storm drain system which she said a City crew had been trying to clear. Ms. Tamllos sent a letter with a petition to the surrounding neighbors gathering signatures for the residents living below 100 South and 4th & 5th East to attend the City Council meeting regarding the water problem. She stated that safety is one of her main concerns due to the water running down the sidewalks, lifted sidewalks and slick dirt and debris left after each storm. She stated that citizens walking, running, exercising or riding by on the sidewalks could easily slip and fall. Ms. Tamllos stated that water is being wasted, standing water has mosquitoes and it is an unsafe, unhealthy problem. She stated that she is worried about the liability that would come from a fall because it is on her property. Ms. Tamllos stated that she understands the sidewalk is the homeowner’s responsibility but she does not want to replace concrete if the problem still exists because it won’t do any good as it is a recurring problem. Several neighbors and family members came to the meeting to discuss the same issues with the Council and hoped that the City would offer a solution. Scott Olsen, Price City Street Supervisor stated that the City is not responsible for the property from the piece of asphalt that touches the gutter to the sidewalk that meets the private property. He stated that he had looked at the area in question and spoken to Ms. Tamllos. The Mayor and Council were all concerned with the issues that the 100 South residents brought to the meeting and thanked them for bringing them to their attention. Mayor Piccolo offered to review the underground storm drainage system with special cameras to see where the problem lies. Ms. Tamllos thanked the Mayor and Council for their time and for the offer of sending the cameras under the street. She stated that she is sure that the cameras will be able to show the problem. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved to form a committee to research the 100 South storm drainage system (with underground cameras), the overshot problems at the 125 South address and calculate the amount of water going into the storm drain system for the area and then report back to the City Council with the findings. Ms. Tamllos will be contacted with the information as the spokesperson for the residents. Motion seconded by Councilmember Hanna-Smith and carried. The item will be placed on unfinished business.
8. ORDINANCE ENFORCEMENT- Price Community Progress Committee
Rigby represented the Price Community Progress Committee with an ordinance
enforcement issue involving blighted properties within

Police Chief, Aleck Shilaos stated that 90% of the time, after a fix it ticket is issued, the property owner takes care of the problem and the Ordinance Officer does follow up on all tickets given. He stated that the property owners are given options if assistance is needed with cleaning the property.
