MOTION. Councilmember Bringhurst moved that Resolution #97-23 be approved and that the Mayor and City Recorder be authorized to sign the resolution. Motion seconded by Councilmember Nikas and carried.
6. ENTERPRISE ZONE APPLICATION AND RECYCLING ZONE APPLICATION
Michelle Lea, director of Carbon Future, presented the Enterprise Zone and Recycling Zone Applications. These zones comprise an area identified by local economic development officials and designated by the Utah State Division of Economic and Community Development. Under the program, certain types of businesses, both new and existing, who are located in a designated zone may be eligible for loans and tax credits. This procedure is used as an incentive for incoming businesses. Rather than have all the entities within the County submit applications for these zones, Ms. Lea will submit one application on behalf of the County and its entities. Both applications include zone maps with the areas designated by the enterprise and recycling zone. Ms. Lea asked the Council to issue a letter of support for the applications. After the documents are reviewed by the Council, they agreed to issue the letter of support.
7. SUN ADVOCATE - Ad for Carbon County Business Review
MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that an ad be purchased in the Sun Advocate for the Carbon County Business Review similar to last years ad. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
8. CARBON COUNTY RECREATION - Use of Multi-Purpose Room In Price Community Center
Steve Christensen, Carbon County Recreation, requested permission to use the multi-purpose room located in the Price Community Center. He would like to use the room each Saturday morning through the end of November for approximately 3 hours to teach acting classes, which is one of their programs and taught by the directors of Helper's Intermountain Theater. In addition, other tenants have also expressed a desire to use the room for large conferences, as sometimes the downstairs meeting room is too small. If the Council agrees, the current tenants have agreed to furnish the room and to clean it. In addition, the Council discussed the possibility of renting the room to the public. Councilmember Bringhurst stated that the committee assigned to review rental of the Price Community Center discussed the use of this room. They felt that those agencies renting offices in the building could use the room as long as the City had knowledge of it. There was no rental fee discussed at that time. He feels these tenants should be allowed to use it at this point. If this changes and it does not work out right, or there is another use for this room, it could be reviewed at that time. MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that Carbon Recreation receive approval to use the multi-purpose room in the Price Community Center through November 22nd at no charge. Motion seconded by Councilmember Bringhurst and carried. Councilmember Piccolo recommended that staff be directed to review rental fees for the multi-purpose room for the public and to bring this information back to the Council. The Council directed that at this time and until a resolution is set, that the existing agencies be allowed to use the multi-purpose room at no charge.
9. SIZE OF CURB AND GUTTER BETWEEN 6TH AND 7TH NORTH - Committee Appointed
Councilmember Piccolo stated that he has no problem with the motion passed at the September 2nd meeting to replace the curb and gutter at the residence of Bevan Young with 9" gutter. However, he does not think the rest of the block should be included in that motion. He feels this creates preferential treatment. This block should be eliminated until a study is conducted on the rest of the City, as there are other areas that should be addressed. Councilmember Denison stated that part of the motion passed at the September 2nd meeting was to form a committee to study the rest of the City to determine where 6" or 9" gutters are necessary. Councilmember Nikas felt that Planning and Zoning should be included in this committee. MOTION. With the exception of Bevan Young's property, Councilmember Piccolo moved that the rest of the property on the block between 6th and 7th North be removed from the motion approved at the September 2nd meeting until a committee can survey the rest of the City, and so that preferential treatment is not created for one block. Motion seconded by Councilmember Nikas. The motion was defeated per the following vote:
Councilmember Piccolo "Aye"
Councilmember Nikas "Aye"
Councilmember Denison "Naye"
Councilmember Bringhurst "Naye"
Councilmember Wheeler "Naye"
MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that a committee consisting of himself, Councilmember Bringhurst, Gary Sonntag, Bevan Young, and two representatives from the Planning and Zoning Commission, be appointed to review the gutter issue throughout the City. Motion seconded by Councilmember Bringhurst and carried.
10. UTAH DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AGREEMENT - Installation of Six Traffic Signals - Approved
Mayor Colosimo presented a contract with the Utah Department of Transportation to install six new and updated traffic intersection signals at 4th North/3rd East, 1st North/3rd East, Main Street/3rd East, 1st North/Carbon Avenue, Main Street/Carbon Avenue, and Main Street/7th East. The electrical systems at some of the intersections need to be modified or relocated. The agreement makes provisions for the City to have this work done and to be reimbursed by UDOT. MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that the contract be approved and that the Mayor and City Recorder be authorized to execute the documents. Motion seconded by Councilmember Piccolo and carried.
11. CASTLE VALLEY COMMUNITY THEATER (SPOOK ALLEY AND NIGHTMARE THEATER) - Referred To Planning and Zoning Commission
Dr. Stewart Scoville, representing the Castle Valley Community Theater, requested permission to sponsor a "spook alley" and nightmare theater at the Newhouse Hotel for a 10 day period. MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that this item be referred to the Planning and Zoning Commission. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
12. UTAH POWER AND LIGHT CO. - Utility Easement, Royal, Utah
Mayor Colosimo presented a request from Utah Power and Light for a utility easement across City property for the purpose of providing power to Price River Water Improvement District's new sludge pond basin located in Royal, Utah. MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that the easement be approved subject to review by Nick Sampinos and Vern Jones. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
13. SHADE TREE COMMISSION - City Funding For Trees
Hal Murdock, representing the Shade Tree Commission, reported that several years in a row, the Commission has received grants for tree planting. At the present time, there appears to be no funding for next year. He requested that the City consider providing some funds to plant trees. MOTION. Councilmember Bringhurst moved that the City give the Shade Tree Commission $1,000 for the purpose of planting tress in the spring of 1998, and that part of these funds come from Community Progress and the other part from the City. Motion seconded by Councilmember Denison and carried.
14. PARKS DEPARTMENT - Permission To Apply For Tree Replacement Grant From UP&L - Struck
15. LYLE BAUER - Parkway Tree
Lyle Bauer, Cemetery Sexton, requested direction from the Council regarding damages inflicted upon a tree planted in the parkway at 241 North 3rd East. A backhoe operator ripped out some tree roots down to ground level. It is unknown at this time what damage it will cause. As the ordinance states it is a misdemeanor to damage City trees, he requested how aggressive he should be? It was recommended that a pamphlet from the Shade Tree Commission be sent to the property owner and encourage him to plant trees, sort of an educational issue. MOTION. Councilmember Bringhurst moved that staff be directed to send some Shade Tree Commission information to the owner and encourage him to replant a tree in the same spot in the event the tree dies. Motion seconded by Councilmember Denison and carried.
16. PURCHASE OF LOADER FOR STREETS DEPARTMENT - Permission To Receive Bids

MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that the home occupied businesses be approved upon payment of the business license fees. Motion seconded by Councilmember Bringhurst and carried.
21. OGDEN'S CARPET OUTLET - Sign, 720 East Main
Councilmember Piccolo reported that the Planning and Zoning Commission is in the process of changing the Land Development Code pertaining to signs. The Commission gave favorable approval for Ogden's Carpet Outlet to use the existing sign on their building located at 720 East Main until this change has been made.
22. GREENWELL INN - Sign, Conditional Use Permit
Councilmember Piccolo reported that the Planning and Zoning Commission gave a favorable recommendation for a sign at the Greenwell Inn, 655 East Main. MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that the sign be approved and that a Conditional Use Permit be issued. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
23. JENNIE COLOSIMO - Board of Adjustment Request (Additional Driveway)
Councilmember Piccolo reported that the Planning and Zoning Commission gave a favorable recommendation to the Board of Adjustments for a variance for an additional driveway to the residence of Jennie Colosimo, 405 East 600 North.
24. STREET WIDTHS - Recommendations Approved
Gary Sonntag reported that recent project developments have impacted existing roadway systems. Conflicts with existing utilities, trees, ditches, offset alignments and other obstacles, etc., have caused him to consider adjustments in street widths and alignment. He discussed these issues with the Planning and Zoning Commission and they gave favorable approval to his recommendations. Gary reviewed the following problem areas with the Council and explained his recommendations.
(1) The alignment of the street from 800 North between 1100 East and Eastwood Drive is not straight - 800 North east of Cedar Hills Drive and 800 North west of Cedar Hills Drive do not tie together, they are offset, causing an obvious bow. This difference in alignment caused the properties east of Cedar Hills Drive to be adjusted by deed to taper the alignment to fit the anticipated street improvements. To date, curb and gutter has been installed along side the Swifts Stop and Shop business and these improvements follow this adjusted angle. The Florence Subdivision is currently constructing the street improvements along this same angle parallel to the existing curb and gutter on the other side of the street. When it is installed, there will be an obvious difference in the alignment when compared to the existing curb and gutter in the Eastwood Hills Subdivision to the east. Gary feels this will work out okay. It would not be in the City's best interests to try to do anything about it other than to conform to the deflection that is there now. There will be no change to this.
(2) 300 East between 200 and 300 South - this street has only a strip of asphalt pavement down the middle of the road and there is not any curb and gutter on either side. When these improvements are installed, the curb and gutter on the west side should be able to match the alignment of the existing curb and gutter to the north. However, the curb and gutter on the east side will have a problem following the existing curb and gutter to the north. This is because of a narrow 3' wide park strip and obstacles in the way such as an irrigation ditch, large trees, driveways, lawns and flower gardens. If the curb and gutter alignment on the east side were adjusted to where it missed all of these obstacles, then the pavement width would be approximately 43' wide. The property owner on the southeast corner of 200 South and 300 East will be installing the street improvements in the very near future and they need to be told where to place the improvements. It was decided by the Planning Commission that the alignment of the curb and gutter on this particular block on the west side of the street would follow the alignment to the north. The curb and gutter on the east side of the street would not follow the alignment of the block to the north. This is an exception of what you find in the rest of the City further up the street. By doing it this way, it will help to accommodate an existing ditch and allow the existing landscaping that is established in front of elderly households.
(3) 400 South between 200 and 300 East - this street has only a strip of asphalt pavement down the middle of the road and there is not any curb and gutter on either side. When these improvements are installed, the curb and gutter on the north side should be able to follow the existing curb and gutter to the west along side the BTAC facility. However, on the south side of the street, there are many power poles and other utilities that would conflict with any new curb and gutter running near the fence or property line. Therefore, it was decided to bring the new curb and gutter out away from the fence to clear the power poles and allow for approximately 50' of pavement. One property owner will be installing street improvements in the near future and they need to be told where to place their work.
(4) 100 West between 500 and 600 South - this road is not improved except for a little bit of gravel. It does not have any curb and gutter along either side of the street. The right of way is approximately 50' wide. In an effort to stay as consistent as possible with the typical City standard, the curb and gutter will be positioned 10' off the fence or property line allowing for 25' of pavement. One property owner will be installing street improvements and they will need to follow this alignment. The Commission felt that the 25' of pavement would be sufficient.
MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that the recommendations as stated to take care of the above problem areas be approved. Motion seconded by Councilmember Nikas and carried. Councilmember Piccolo commended Gary for his time and efforts to solve the problems that exist.
25. SWIMMING POOL LIFEGUARD/SUPERVISOR/INSTRUCTOR VACANCIES - Tabled
Councilmember Denison reported that during the summer months, there is a need for additional positions as Lifeguard/Supervisor/Instructor, and as fall nears, there is a reduction depending on the number of employees that leave the area to attend school. As he recalls, it was decided that once a guard reaches the requirements for a Lifeguard/Supervisor/Instructor, that he/she could be moved into this position to fill the time slot. If the employee works as a Lifeguard, they are paid the lower wage and if the employee works as a Lifeguard/Supervisor/Instructor, they are paid the higher wage. He requested clarification of this procedure or if this should be posted as changes occur. Vern Jones felt that perhaps the job description could be changed so that there is only one classification of a lifeguard and that the pay scale within that single classification would handle the needs. The item was tabled for further review.
26. SWIMMING POOL ATTENDANCE AND RATE DISCUSSION
Councilmember Denison presented a report prepared by Pam Moyes, Swimming/Wave Pool Office Manager. The report indicates pool attendance and revenue since 1995 to the present, the fees charged for swimming pool admissions, season passes, classes, and pool rentals, and a recommendation to raise fees, as they have remained the same since the wave pool opened in 1989. Also provided in the report is a comparison from other pools. The Council felt that the recommended increase is not out of line. Councilmember Denison discussed the different programs that will be held in the future. This will be reviewed further.
27. BOB POTTS, PAT LARSEN, LISA PETERSEN, VERN JONES, TRACY ALLRED, J. R. MANGUM (EMERY COUNTY DEPUTY), SHANE HENRIE - Travel Approved
Mayor Colosimo presented the following travel requests:
Brian Clark, Bob Potts, Pat Larsen - Casselle Training, October 14th, 15th, Park City, Utah
Lisa Petersen - Casselle Training, September 29th - October 2nd, Spanish Fork, Utah
Vern Jones - Joint Highway Committee Meeting, September 19th, Monticello, Utah

Shane Henrie - Police Computerized Reporting System, October 13th - October 15th, Salt Lake, Utah
Councilmember Nikas questioned the travel request for Brian Clark and if both he and Bob Potts should be gone at the same time. Pat Larsen explained the training they will receive and why it is necessary that they attend. MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that the travel be approved and that as an option, if schedules can be worked out, that an employee from the Billing Department go instead of Brian, and if it can't be worked out, that Brian then be approved to go. Motion seconded by Councilmember Piccolo and carried.
28. CITY ENGINEER POSITION - Committee To Review Job Description
Councilmember Nikas reported that a committee was assigned to review the applications and conduct interviews for the City Engineer position. Prior to the interviews, he recommended that the committee review the job description for the City Engineer in relation to the Public Works Director to make sure everything is as efficient as possible in that department. The committee consists of himself, Mayor Colosimo, Councilmember Piccolo, Gary Sonntag, Vern Jones, and Cobb Johnson. MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that the committee have the authority to review the job descriptions of the City Engineer and the Public Works Director and come back with some recommendations or options. Motion seconded by Councilmember Denison and carried.
29. CARBON/EMERY DRUG TASK FORCE - Approval For Funding
Police Chief Shilaos reported that the Carbon/Emery Drug Task Force has separated from the State and been moved to the Price Community Center. The Carbon County and Emery County Sheriffs have verbally committed to paying their share of the rent. Carbon County has designated an officer for the Task Force and will pay the officer's salary. In the past, Price City has paid half an officer's salary and Carbon County has paid the other half. As Carbon County will now provide their own officer, and if Price City continues to participate, they will need to fund the other half of the officer's salary, which will be approximately $20,000. MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that the City pay the other half of the officer's salary at $20,000. Motion seconded by Councilmember Denison and carried.
30. COMMISSION ON CRIMINAL AND JUVENILE JUSTICE - Permission To Accept Grant For $7,500
Police Chief Shilaos requested permission to accept a grant in the amount of $7,500 from the Commission On Criminal and Juvenile Justice. He would like to purchase two mobile camcorders and one regular camcorder with these funds. MOTION. Councilmember Wheeler moved that the grant be accepted and that Chief Shilaos be permitted to purchase the camcorders. Motion seconded by Councilmember Piccolo and carried.
31. RESOLUTION #97-24 - Procedure For Notification of Special City Council Meetings
Nick Sampinos presented Resolution #97-24, establishing a procedure for notification of special City Council meetings. MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that Resolution #97-24 be approved and that the Mayor and City Recorder be authorized to sign the resolution. Motion seconded by Councilmember Bringhurst and carried.
32. 800 NORTH STORM DRAIN PROJECT (DESIGN) - Johansen and Tuttle Engineering - Partial Payment #2
MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that Partial Payment #2 in the amount of $4,208.25 be paid to Johansen and Tuttle for their contract on the design of the 800 North Storm Drain Project. Motion seconded by Councilmember Nikas and carried.
33. 10 MILLION GALLON WATER TANK - CRS Consulting Engineers - Partial Payment #26
MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that Partial Payment #26 in the amount of $696.14 be paid to CRS Engineering for their contract on the 10 Million Gallon Water Tank. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
34. SUN ADVOCATE - Development Agreement - Partial Release of Funds In Escrow
Gary Sonntag reported that the Sun Advocate has successfully completed the required installation of street improvements in front of their new office facility at 845 East Main Street. He recommended release of 90% of the Development Agreement. MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that 90% of the Development Agreement in an amount of $6,914.70 be released. Motion seconded by Councilmember Piccolo and carried.
35. KIAHTIPES AND SANDERSON DEVELOPMENTS - Expiration of Letter of Credit, Demand On Funds
Gary Sonntag reported that the Kiahtipes development was required to install a new water line along Carbonville road. They are responsible for maintaining a sum of $3,083 in escrow to guarantee the project for one year through June, 1998. Their letter of credit expires on October 1st. They have been notified that it needs to be renewed. He requested permission to make a demand on the letter of credit on or before October 1, 1997 in the event they fail to renew the escrow account. MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that the request be granted. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
36. SANDERSON DEVELOPMENT - Expiration of Letter of Credit, Demand On Funds
Gary Sonntag reported that the Sanderson development is required to install street improvements along the frontage of their lot at 326 East 200 South. They have a current letter of credit to guarantee the project in the amount of $17,571. The letter of credit will expire on November 1st. They have been notified that it needs to be renewed. He requested permission to make a demand on the letter of credit on or before November 1, 1997 in the event they fail to renew the escrow account. MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that the request be granted. Motion seconded by Councilmember Bringhurst and carried.
37. BILL'S HOME FURNISHING - Development Agreement, Letter of Credit
Gary Sonntag reported that Bill's Home Furnishing development at 45 South 300 East was approved for expansion in 1995 contingent upon submittal of a development agreement and letter of credit to guarantee the installation of street improvements. To date they have failed to furnish these documents and funding. When contacted recently about this, they said that some of the improvements were in and the rest would be installed shortly. They asked if they still needed to turn in the required development agreement and letter of credit. It was an oversight that they were allowed to proceed with their development without filing these documents. Under the circumstances, it appears possible to allow them to finish the improvements if they sign the development agreement and submit a bond, letter of credit or cashiers check in an amount representing at least 10% of the improvement cost. This amount would be held for one year.
Gary further reported that Mr. Knott questioned whether or not he had to make all of the improvements in front of his lot. Mr. Knott was told he would be responsible for installing all of the required improvements in front of his development, which include repairing and upgrading any existing improvements such as sidewalks, curb, gutter, culverts and drainage basins. Gary requested that his recommendations for the letter of credit and installation of required improvements be approved. Gary further stated that one of Mr. Knott's arguing points is a particular drainage box that needs to be straightened out. He asked if the City were willing to compromise on this particular drainage box to straighten it out? If Mr. Knott was to construct it, it would cost $1,000, and if City crews were to construct it, it would cost $400. The Council questioned if these offsite improvements would be eligible under Redevelopment Agency grants. Vern Jones indicated that they were. Mr. Knott has already received grant funds from the Agency for renovation of his building, but he does not think that he submitted costs for these improvements. It was recommended that Vern Jones contact Mr. Knott and make him aware that these improvements are eligible for reimbursement under the Redevelopment Agency. MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that the recommendations of the City Engineer be approved. Motion seconded by Councilmember Denison and carried.
38. BUSINESS LICENSE APPLICATIONS - Approved
The following business license applications were received:
TLO Enterprises/Ogdens Carpet, 720 East Main, Elizabeth & Travis Oviatt-Partners, Retail Floor Sales (57.1) $100 Half Year Fee

Kevin V. Norried, 68 North Carbon Avenue, Handyman (73) $50 Half Year Fee
MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that the businesses be approved. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
39. BUSINESS LICENSE PROCEDURE - Direction To Prepare Resolution
Councilmember Nikas reported that there have been numerous times where businesses have had to wait for the next Council meeting to receive approval to go into business. With the changes on the business license application where the Building Inspector, Police Chief and Fire Chief sign off on it, he feels there is a way to streamline the process. Once the above officials have signed off on the application, he feels that the license could be issued and the individual permitted to begin business. The business license department would make a monthly report of individuals or companies that go into business during that particular month. If there is a question or a controversial business, it could be placed on the agenda for review. The Council concurred with the recommendation. MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that staff be directed to prepare a resolution to that effect. Motion seconded by Councilmember Bringhurst and carried.
40. LIBRARY AIDE POSITION - Approved
MOTION. Councilmember Wheeler moved that permission be given to hire a permanent part time Library Aide. Motion seconded by Councilmember Bringhurst and carried.
