- Meeting called to order by Troy Blundell, Chair, there was a Quorum.
- Welcome, Introductions and then Pledge of Allegiance was led by Don
Patocka. Paulina Flint was excused since she was out of town on Water Company

minutes rather than January. Motion seconded and approved. Kay Dickerson
presented the February 4th, 2009 minutes for approval. Paul Smith made a
motion to approve the February Minutes, it was seconded and approved.
- Jeremy Christensen gave the Treasurer’s report for February. A comment was
made that we need to show separate accounting in the checking account for the
funds that were donations to the Community so they can be separated from the
County supplied funding. Jeremy will show this next month. Don Patocka made a
motion to approve the report. Motion was seconded and approved.
- Since Bev Uipi was not present it was recommended to move to the next
agenda item. There was no opposition therefore we proceeded to the next item.
- Brody Waldrum from the Sheriff’s Department gave the crime incident report
for the White City Township area. The last month was the least amount of
reported incidents. There has been a large number of tagging in the area, in
specific the well house in the gully and several other areas. SB-131 or
changing the name of the Sheriff’s office to Unified Police Agency is still
being considered or may be Valley Alliance.
- Bev Uipi gave the Mayor’s report. The budget check will be to ACCT this
week. There are board openings for any volunteers and there are numerous areas
where volunteers are needed. The Domestic Fowl Ordnance is finally available
and the County is looking for approval by 1 April. The Mayors’ Town Hall
Meeting is coming up on the 29th. Don Patocka made a motion to approve the
cost of helping to pay for the cost of banners, with other Community Councils
for the Town Hall meeting. Motion seconded and approved.
- Greg Schultz gave the West Side Community Council report. Greg mentioned
that all the councils agree with Brody on the graffiti in the area. They are
looking at making it a felony if the cost of cleaning up the tagging exceeds
$1000. He discussed Legislative watch list that he passed out briefly. SB-131
has passed the Senate and SB-073 should be approved with minor modifications.
Capital Improvements list was discussed and the list as Greg presented it
shows the correct priorities and still needs to be worked as funds become
- Parks and Recreation- Need some input as to what is being done on 1300 east
which is a Sandy project with UDOT. Some of the capital improvements may need to
be changed, such as, resurfacing the tennis courts may only be need to be
restriped. Priorities are ok as listed. Still need parking improvements to Bear
Park and Greg will better define exact changes for Emergency needs.
Domestic Fowl Ordinance was discussed and a motion was made by Don Patocka to
notify the County as White City Township Community Council we disapprove the
ordinance as now written and needs to be rewritten extensively. The ordinance as
now structured is not clear as to distance to fowl or structure and degree of
cleanliness to be required or any inverse consequences. There is no definition
of consequences or the enforcement is vague or non existent. Motion was seconded
and approved. Concern is expressed about the current enforcement of the domestic
animal ordinances by the county in R1-8 residential areas.
ACCT Representatives-Don Patocka made a motion that the adoption of our two
representatives is Troy Blundell and Paulina Flint to be our official
representatives at the monthly ACCT meeting and to have our voting rights,
notification in writing to ACCT will be required to authorize temporary voting
privileges in the absence of council’s official representative(s). Seconded and
- Parks and Recreation- need two representatives to attend a meeting with Green
Play Consultants at the Parks and Recreation offices on 27 March. Troy Blundell
and Jeremy Christensen to attend.
- New Business-Don Patocka wanted to extend a vote of appreciation to Kay
Dickerson, secretary and Jeremy Christensen, treasurer for the work they have
done in the last year.
- Meeting was adjourned.
