4. CHARTER SCHOOL CROSSING GUARD - Approved
Aleck Shilaos reported that the Charter School is experiencing periods of chaos when parents deliver their children to and from school. The school currently has temporary buildings and a temporary drop off area, which should be alleviated when the facility has been completely renovated. He requested permission to place a 4-way stop at the intersection of 300 North 600 East and to establish a crossing guard at that location. Under current policy, a funding arrangement needs to be worked out with both charter and private schools. Regular schools fall under the responsibility of the local authority. The Crossing Guard=s station will be placed on the corner but once the renovation is complete, he would like to move it to the middle of the block so that kids from either corner can move to the middle of the block to cross the street. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved that Chief Shilaos be authorized to work with Gary Sonntag on resolving this issue and to come to an agreeable decision on funding a Crossing Guard and any equipment necessary. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried by those present (Councilmembers Wheeler and Tatton and Councilmember Denison on the speakerphone). Nick Sampinos recomended that this item be ratified upon the arrival of Councilmember Aguayo.

8. ELKRIDGE SUBDIVISION - 485 West 800 South - Plant Amendment Approved, Development Agreement Extended
Mayor Protem McEvoy reported that the Planning and Zoning Commission reviewed the request of Elkridge Subdivision for a plat amendment and recommended approval, as some of the lots in the subdivision are so close to Fairgrounds Road, they have had to change the property lines on the south side. When Elkridge requested their second phase be constructed, they were required to construct curb, gutter and sidewalks along Fairgrounds Road, as is the standard procedure. When Elkridge moved forward and contacted Carbon County to determine exactly where their property line was, it was found that there was an error in the property line description. Elkridge did not own as much property as they thought they did. The road has a wider right-of-way. At this point, Carbon County is not sure what they will do on Fairgrounds Road because of the trail access that is planned. Therefore, there is not enough room to put in curb, gutter and sidewalks. Carbon County does not want these improvements constructed until the outcome of the trails improvements have been decided. Elkridge is asking that road improvements be deleted from the prior Conditional Use Permit. Nick Tatton stated that the trails road is scheduled to cross the old 3rd West bridge on the river and run up Fairgrounds Road. The County hasn=t determined which side of the road to have a fairly large easement and until this is determined, the County would like a waiver on the curb and gutter requirements so that improvements are not constructed and then dug up a short time later. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved that the plat be amended for the lot lines and that the Development Agreement for the curb, gutter and sidewalks be extended for one year from the date of the Development Agreement and that it be reviewed at that time. Motion seconded by Councilmember Aguayo and carried.
9. PRICE RIVER DRIVE BUSINESS PARK - Plant Amendment Approved, Public Hearing Scheduled For Zone Change
Mayor Protem McEvoy reported that the Planning and Zoning Commission gave a favorable recommendation to the request of the Price River Drive Business Park For A Plat Amendment and Zone Change.
