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 at 6:06 p.m. by Mayor McGee.


2.          Emergency Plan Proposed by Lone Peak PSD (6:06 p.m.)

Joel Jenks presented an update of the City’s Emergency Plan. It is a working draft and will then be presented to the Lone Peak Public Safety District for approval, after which it will be given to the City Councils of Cedar Hills, Highland and Alpine. This update is more accessible and improves the coverage. For example, one shortcoming that is addressed in this update is victim information. This update also adds the position of Resource Manager. The Council will study the new update and come to the next meeting prepared to discuss it.


3.          Report on North Utah County Recreation Task Force (6:28 p.m.)

David Kirkpatrick has been the City’s representative on the task force. Phase I of the task force defined the overall needs and identified the best recommendations to meet the recreational needs. The recommendation was to form a tri-city recreation district between Cedar Hills, Highland and Alpine that would become its own entity. Mayor McGee has spoken with the mayors of Highland and Alpine. They would like to participate in the feasibility study. The Alpine School District would also like to participate in the recreation district.


4.          Engineering Report and Discussion (6:43 p.m.)

           The overflow piping for the lower culinary tank is complete.

           On January 22, the Harvey well pump went out of service. While the new motor was coming, the American Fork water system supplied water to the City. The Cedar Hills system was back in service on February 3. The new motor was $14,000. Rebuilding would have saved 25 percent, but would have taken more time. The City will keep the old motor and possibly rebuild it to use in the new well.

           The City has been waiting for the Division of Water Resources to accept the City’s proof of water rights from the Harvey well. The City would then submit a change application so the water rights can be used for the new well. The Division of Water Resources is now asking the City to withdraw the proof and submit the change request first. They are allowing the City to request a provisional drilling permit. There have been two water sites identified. The preferred site is a City property off of Cottonwood Drive.


5.          The Work Session was adjourned at 6:52 p.m. by Mayor McGee.
