subject:  City Manager’s Summary of August 16, 2016 Council Meetings
date:      August 11, 2016

5:30    Work Session – The City Council will meet in a work session at 5:30 p.m. to review and discuss the comprehensive sidewalk inventory/analysis prepared by the City’s intern.  Her report is still under review by the City Manager, but will be available online via NovusAgenda no later than Monday, August 15.  The City Council is encouraged to read at least the Executive Summary before coming to the work session.  This report and supporting database will be the foundation for preparation of a capital plan for sidewalk repairs, as well as future policy discussions about the use and management of the public rights-of-way.  Dinner will be available beginning at 5:15 p.m.

7:00    Regular City Council Meeting

E.1.    4th of July Celebration Report – Steve and Kris Green, Co-Chairs of this year’s July 4th Celebration, will provide a wrap-up report to the City Council.  They have submitted a written summary, available now online, and a financial summary will be available by Monday.

E.2.    Minutes Review -- In their August 2 meeting, the City Council postponed approval of the July 19 work session minutes to allow the recording secretary to listen to the recording and add some comments.  That addition is shown in red in the latest version of those minutes, available online along with the August 2 meeting minutes.

E.3.    Summary Action Calendar
a.    Facilities Use Agreements – Three youth sports leagues, identified on the agenda, use the City’s sports fields for practices and games.  These agreements—similar to prior agreements—govern their use
of these park fields.
b.    Terminate warranty period – Pastures Phase 1, a commercial project west of I-15 on 1275 North Street, is ready for termination of its warranty period.
c.    Purchase multi-use tractor – The FY 2017 Budget includes funding to replace equipment for clearing snow on City property and walkways. The Parks Department is responsible for clearing snow at
City facilities, parks and now the pedestrian bridge/walkway on Parrish Lane over I-15.  A truck with plow is used to clear the parking lots, but this equipment will be used on walkways. It includes a
plow blade and snow blower.

E.4.    Public Hearing—Transfer of Real Property to Fire Service Area – With their approval of the agreement creating the South Davis Metro Fire Service Area, the City Council agreed to transfer ownership of the Centerville Fire Station property to this new entity, which took over operations of the South Davis Metro Fire Agency as of July 1, 2016.  Before that can be done, however, the City Council must conduct a public hearing, which has been advertised for this meeting.

E.5.    Public Hearing—General Plan Amendment re West Centerville Neighborhood Plan – In the March 2016 goal-setting work session, the City Council agreed to amend the West Centerville Neighborhood Plan to remove Industrial Very-High as a desired use in that area.  This action amends only the General Plan and does not change the current I-VH zoning.  The Planning Commission recommends approval of this amendment.

E.6.    Mayor’s Report – Mayor Cutler will report on Fire Service Area matters, the recent Tour of Utah Stage 5 through Centerville, and the most recent UTOPIA/UIA financial reports.

E.7.    City Council Liaison Report – Councilwoman Stephanie Ivie, the City Council’s liaison to the Landmarks Commission and Whitaker Museum Board, will report on the activities of those two organizations.

E.8.    City Manager’s Report
a.   In an earlier meeting, the City Council agreed to meet in a work session with the Planning Commission and South Main Street property/business owners to discuss the public space plan.  The dates of
August 30, 31 or September 1 are recommended.
b.   The City Manager will report on staff’s meetings with UDOT for discussions about the Parrish Lane interchange.
c.   Jake Smith, Assistant to the City Manager, will highlight some of the data from the latest update of the Operational Metrics report.  This was postponed from the last council meeting.

E.9.    Miscellaneous Business
a.    ULCT Convention – Registration information in available in the meeting packet.
b.    City Manager compensation – The City Council will consider a pay raise for the City Manager as follow up on their annual review of his performance in an earlier closed meeting.
c.    Crack seal work on parking lots and trails – The City Engineer recommends some timely maintenance work—i.e. crack sealing--on the asphalt surfaces of several City parking lots and asphalt trails.
He estimates this would cost $10,000 to $15,000 and would be in preparation for slurry seal treatments to be applied next year.  The City Manager recommends this work be funded by the General Fund
contingency and RAP Tax Fund, as appropriate.

E.10.    Closed Meeting – Council Members have requested a closed meeting to discuss the character and professional competency of an individual or individuals.

E.11.    Appointments to City Boards/Committees – Mayor Cutler may recommend one or more appointments.
