1. This Work Session of the City Council of the City of Cedar Hills, having been posted throughout the City and the press notified, was called to order by Mayor McGee at 6:29 p.m.
2. Motion to go into Executive Session, Pursuant to Utah State Code 52-4-5
3. Motion to Adjourn Executive Session and Reconvene City Council Meeting
No Executive Session held.
4. Noticed agenda items for this Regular Council Meeting
• Proposal to Exchange a Portion of City Open Space Property with Highland City - Resident Stephen Lee wants to buy a portion of open space adjacent to his property in The Cedars - West. The open space is owned by Highland City. Highland City is willing to swap an equal acreage of open space with Cedar Hills. Cedar Hills can then sell the open space to Stephen Lee.
• Resolution Adopting a Financial Planning Policy - This proposal incorporates practices the City already follows in the GFOA format.
• Ordinance Regulating Photography and Audio and Video Recording at Public Meetings - Eric Johnson wrote this ordinance to regulate photography and recordings at public meetings. The Council can determine an exact location for recordings to take place.
• Emergency Watering Restrictions - Some residents have asked about using culinary water for landscaping. Enforcement becomes an issue if the City allows culinary water usage. The Pressurized Irrigation (PI) Agreement prohibits residents from using culinary water for outdoor use. The City requires water rights of 1 acre foot per home; .45 acre feet is used indoors and the remaining .55 acre feet can be used in six months. The current problem is a pumping issue. However, if the City continues to use water at the current rate, there will be a supply issue and then there will be a storage problem. After that, there will be a water rights issue. The City needs to get a handle on the consumption to avoid having future and additional problems.
5. This meeting was adjourned at 6:55 p.m. by Mayor McGee.
