August 21, 2012
There will be no work session prior to the City Council meeting on Tuesday evening. Please remember, however, there is a work session scheduled for 7:00 p.m. the following evening, Wednesday, August 22 in the Multi-Purpose Room downstairs in City Hall. The work session is being held downstairs because the Planning Commission will be holding its regular meeting in the Council chambers. I hope to email an agenda for the work session by next Monday, along with pertinent documents. The Wednesday work session will be devoted entirely to the Main and Parrish intersection project. I have made Mr. Hainsworth aware that the work session will be downstairs and that there will be limited capacity for the public. I believe we can comfortably accommodate 20 or so of the public in addition to the City Council, staff, UDOT representatives and traffic consultant. I have suggested to Mr. Hainsworth that the limited space for the public to attend should be used by those who are most directly affected by the project.
7:00 Regular City Council meeting
E.1. Minutes Review and Acceptance – The minutes to be approved are enclosed.
E.2. July 4th Committee Report – Randy Burgoyne, Chair of the 2012 July 4th Festivities Committee, will report on the recent community celebration. The written report will be provided to the City Council Tuesday evening.
E.3. Discussion with Senator Todd Weiler – State Senator Todd Weiler, who replaced Dan Liljenquist, has offered to attend the City Council meeting and discuss upcoming legislative issues that may impact cities. Mayor Russell asked me to schedule some time for Senator Weiler on this agenda.
E.4. Summary Action Calendar
E.5. City Attorney Position – The City Council has discussed in two prior meetings the possibility of creating a full-time in-house City Attorney position to replace the current method of receiving legal services via contract with the law firm of Mazuran & Hayes. Lisa Romney, current City Attorney and partner in that law firm, desires to become an in-house attorney for a Utah city. Her first choice would be Centerville City. The City Council agrees this opportunity makes sense because the City would be receiving the services of a full-time city attorney for not much more cost than currently incurred under the legal services contract, which provides approximately the equivalent of a half-time city attorney. See the staff report for much more analysis and details pertaining to this matter.
E.6. Well Drilling Project – The City’s contractor has been drilling a new well near the intersection of Chase Lane and Main Street. As explained in the enclosed email from Kevin Campbell, the intent is to drill deeper than originally intended in the contract, which would incur additional cost. I will discuss the specifics of this matter next Monday with the City Engineer and report such at the Council meeting. The City Council may be asked to approve a contract amendment to pay for additional drilling depth.
E.7. Miscellaneous Business
E.9. City Manager’s Report
E.11. Possible action following closed meeting – I don’t anticipate any appointments by the Mayor, but the agenda provides for that possibility.
8:25 RDA Meeting – Following the City Council meeting, the Council should adjourn into an Redevelopment Agency meeting to consider a request from Scott Marquardt of the Management & Training Corporation for tax increment assistance in connection with the construction of an office building and related parking structure on Lot 2 within the Centerville Corporate Park Subdivision. I have enclosed the recent Traffic Study conducted by Joe Perrin of Atrans Engineering. The purpose of that study was to evaluate the parking needed for this project, as well as the traffic impact on City streets in the vicinity of Market Place and Parrish Lane. Another purpose for that study relates to the Main and Parrish intersection project, the subject of the Wednesday work session.
Jason Burningham, the City’s financial advisor, is also preparing an advance document for the RDA Board, evaluating the need for tax increment assistance on this project. If received in time for the advance packet it will be enclosed; if not, it will be emailed when available.
