1.         This Work Session of the City Council of the City of Cedar Hills, Utah, having been posted throughout the City and the press notified, was called to order at 6:12 p.m. by Mayor McGee.


2.         Noticed agenda items for this Regular Council Meeting (6:12 p.m.)


The Cedars, Plat I - There are four items that need to be addressed: (1) Completion of landscaping of roundabout on Bayhill Drive, estimated cost of $5,000. (2) Retention pond landscaping at corner of Bayhill and Canyon Road, estimated cost of $12,000. (3) Installation of traffic control devices at trail crossings, estimated cost of $13,000. (4) Submission of water rights or cash in lieu, $132,810.47. Lone Peak Links brought in a check for the water right as cash in lieu. The City had already acquired water for about half of what was needed. Lone Peak Links paid contract rate for what the City had already acquired and paid market rate for the remaining water. Also the park should be transferred to the HOA. Approval should be contingent on receiving the $30,000 bond for improvements. C. Perry gave a report on the Cedars HOA meeting. Steven Lee, resident, called the meeting because Lone Peak Links refused to do so. Then Lone Peak Links sent out a notice of the meeting saying it was time for the residents to take control of the HOA. Lone Peak Links wants to maintain interest over Plat I. Steven Lee presented a change to the CC&Rs at that meeting that gave control to the homeowners while giving Lone Peak Links control over Plat I. Lone Peak Links’ attorney presented changes that gave Lone Peak Links complete veto power. The HOA got more than the required number of votes to take control of the HOA. Lone Peak Links certified the vote and sent out a letter to homeowners with the new CC&Rs. HOA elections will be held soon. Steven Lee suggested the City discuss golf course issues once the officers are in place.


3.         Engineering Report and Discussion (6:28 p.m.)


David Bunker reported that there are 998 total lots in the upper pressurized irrigation (PI) zone with 722 being landscaped. Seventy-five percent of the landscaped lots are hooked up to PI. About 50 percent are being billed. The City is looking into any discrepancies. Current peak daily demand is 2.6576 million gallons and is projected to be 4.9022 million gallons at buildout. Analysis shows that outdoor water usage almost doubled when households went from culinary to PI. The current pump rate is 890 GPM and the needed pump rate is 2,155 GPM. Staff recommends adding two additional pumps at pond #12 with one additional wet well and power improvements. There should also be two additional pumps at pond #10 with one additional wet well and power improvements. The total cost is approximately $155,000. The City will need to look into the power requirements for these improvements. Also the pipes need to be looked at to determine whether the current system can accommodate the necessary flow. That analysis will take 1-2 months.


4.         Discussion Regarding Ethics (6:59 p.m.)


C. Parker has started reviewing ethics ordinances for a number of cities around the country. He thinks there are areas where the City could be a little tighter. C. Parker will put together a proposal for the next meeting.


5.         This Work Session was adjourned at 7:02 p.m. by Mayor McGee.
