Mayor Daniel McArthur
Council Member Suzanne Allen
Council Member Rod Orton
Council Member Bob Whatcott
Council Member Larry Gardner
City Manager Gary Esplin
City Attorney Shawn Guzman
City Recorder Gay Cragun

EXCUSED:
Council Member Sharon Isom

OPENING:
Mayor McArthur called the meeting to order and welcomed all present. The salute to the flag was led by Scout Kenny Richmond, and the invocation was offered by Fire Chief Robert Stoker.

Mayor McArthur invited Scout Kenny Richmond from Troop 751 to introduce himself.

Wes Peterson introduced Daniel Seegmiller, the American Legion Boy?s State Governor, and they presented a plaque to the Police Chief Marlon Stratton and the Police Department in appreciation for their assistance to the Boy?s State program.

AWARD OF BID:
Consider award of bid for Kennedy hydrants for the Water Services Department.

Purchasing Agent Sue Swensen advised this is a sole source purchase from Scholzen Products, the manufacturer?s representative, for Kennedy hydrants. She recommended award to Scholzen Products in the amount of $38,000.

A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Gardner to award purchase of Kennedy hydrants to Scholzen Products in the amount of $38,000. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye.

Purchasing Agent Sue Swensen advised that Kennedy is a brand of fire hydrant.

AWARD OF BID:
Consider award of bid for a four door sport utility vehicle for the Fire Department.

Purchasing Agent Sue Swensen recommended purchase of a Tahoe sport utility vehicle through the State contract with Young Chevrolet in the amount of $30,382.75.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised this vehicle will be for the Assistant Fire Chief and was included in the Department?s budget.

A motion was made by Council Member Allen and seconded by Council Member Gardner to award the bid to Young Chevrolet in the amount of $30,517.94, the amended amount. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye.

UPDATE FROM WASHINGTON COUNTY SHERIFF:
Washington County Sheriff Kirk Smith advised that the occupancy rate at the jail is high and he was worried about cuts to the budget which would require the early release of inmates. He advised he was hoping for sufficient money in the corrections budget to keep inmates in jail for the length of their sentences. He advised that ideally he would like more manpower for the Drug Task Force, but it is seeing tremendous results all over the County.

ORDINANCE:
Consider amendment of the City?s Parking Ordinance 10-8-10 by repealing Subsections ?A? and ?C? thereof.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained this amendment was necessary due to a recent court decision that prohibiting vehicles from displaying their vehicles for sale on streets and private property is a violation of free speech. The City will still, however, have opportunities to deal with this issue through zoning or by posting of private property.

A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the amendment as presented. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows:

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

RESOLUTION:
Consider approval of a resolution authorizing the execution and delivery of the Utah Water Finance Agency Joint Action Agreement and related matters.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that approval of this resolution will allow the City to enter into an agreement with the Utah Water Finance Agency thereby allowing the City to refund some of its outstanding water revenue bonds. This will help the City save approximately $150,000 on the cost of issuance. Staff recommends approval.

A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Gardner to approve the resolution. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows:

Council Member Whatcott - aye
Council Member Gardner - aye
Council Member Allen - aye
Council Member Orton - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT:

A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the agreement as presented.

City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that any approval be made subject to review by the City Attorney.

Council Members Orton and Allen amended their motion to include this provision. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried.

John Crandall of George K. Baum explained this agreement is for sewer and water refunding bonds, and he will return in February to illustrate what the savings to the City will be.

SET PUBLIC HEARINGS:
Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held January 14, 2003, recommended that public hearings be scheduled for February 20, 2003 at 5:00 p.m. to consider (a) a zone change from A-20 and A-1 to R-1-10 on 61.792 acres located east of River Road and south of 2450 South, Jerry and Russell Riggs, applicants; (b) a zone change from C-2 to C-3 for .4 acre located at the northeast corner of Tabernacle Street and 800 East intersection, Bill Telford, applicant; (c) an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to allow public transit shelters to be located within the setback area adjacent to a public street; (d) an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to clarify and bring it into consistency with other provisions in the ordinance regarding the percentage of lot to be occupied; and (e) an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to include language to address the location of measurement, overall height of vertical wall, and wall offset where greater height is necessary for rear yard fences adjacent to a public street.

A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to schedule the public hearings as recommended by the Planning Commission. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried.

PRELIMINARY PLAT:
Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held January 14, 2003, recommended approval of the preliminary plat for Sundown Estates located at 750 North 1275 West subject to the easements shown on the plat, no fence along the creek, and the Engineering Department addressing the purpose of the fence as recommended at the Planning Commission meeting. Brad Griffiths is the applicant. Staff feels that a fence is necessary for safety and to preserve the creek, however, the location of the fence is a concern as enough room must be provided to enable the City to perform maintenance of the wash. The applicant would like to have the creek as part of the lots.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that in the past the City has required developers to give this flood area to the City for flood control purposes. If the developer retains the property as an amenity, he will also be taking on the responsibility to maintain it.
This area is a major flood control channel, not a meandering creek, and it is there for a purpose.

Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that if the creek area were removed from the lots, the lots would not meet minimum square footage requirements of the zone.

City Manager Gary Esplin expressed concern that the developer is using area actually located in the flood channel as square footage in order to get more lots on the property, and this is not an appropriate use. There is also a safety issue, as well as an issue with the fence as enough space is needed in order for City equipment to maintain the flood channel.

A motion was made by Council Member Allen to approve the request subject to the stipulation that a fence be required 10' from the bank. The motion died for lack of a second.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that there is also an option of piping the creek, and then a fence would not be required.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised that if a fence is constructed, the two lots will not meet the minimum 20,000 sq. ft. requirement. He suggested that perhaps the applicant should work with staff on a recommendation and arrive at a consensus.

Brad Griffiths, applicant, advised that his engineer advises that a fence at the top of the proposed rip rap will allow a 10' setback for the home to be built.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that to his knowledge, the City has never allowed any area inside the City Creek drainage to be counted as part of a residential lot, and the integrity of the storm drain system should be protected. He suggested that perhaps a perpetual easement could be given, but in good faith staff could not recommend the flood channel be allowed to become part of a platted lot because of the concern of maintaining the flood channel and safety issues.

Mr. Griffiths advised that the Planning Commission was not in favor of a fence because of property rights, but if an individual lot owner preferred a fence, it would be an option.

A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to table action until more research was performed by staff and the developer.
Mayor McArthur called for a vote and all voted aye. The motion carried.

PRELIMINARY PLAT:
Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held January 14, 2003, recommended approval, on a five to two vote, of the preliminary plat for Cotton Springs Phase I. The Planning Commission was uneasy, however, about discussing the plat because there was no agreement on fees, use of the recreation area, and cross access between the two parties. Staff is concerned that Cotton Manor will have one entrance, and Cotton Springs will have another, and the projects will have different names but the same address. George Badger is the applicant.

Council Member Whatcott commented he struggled with approval of the plat as there is one private street accessing another private street, and no approval from the other project that the new project may access their community.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman commented it was his understanding that the rights-of-way to access the private streets fall in line with the original PD. The PD was approved with this configuration of roadways.

City Manager Gary Esplin inquired if the other homeowners association would have the right to close off any streets.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman replied that they would have to get approval to do so, but it probably would not be allowed for public safety reasons, and the PD plan shows the roads as being open.

Community Development Director Bob Nicholson advised if the roads were gated, a PD amendment and public hearing would be required.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained that the other homeowner?s association has not even begun that process. He explained he met with both parties and thought at the time that the matter was moving in a positive direction, but he has not heard from them since. The other PD has not tried to amend their PD, and the applicant is not doing anything which is not in harmony with what was approved before. The two projects simply cannot agree on how to share the amenities, and perhaps the City should consider this case in the future in phasing-in any PD, knowing that in the future phases could fall into the hands of a different property owner.

Council Member Whatcott commented that it appeared the first one to file the preliminary plat or amended plat wins.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained that in a typical PD there would not be two different property owners with competing phases.

Council Member Whatcott commented that in the last hearing the Council was told it was not the time to discuss the pros and cons. Now that the preliminary plat is being considered the Council is being told that it cannot deny approval.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman explained the question is whether the City can hold up the process because private parties cannot agree on joining the homeowners associations. It is staff?s belief that this is a private issue and there is no reason to hold up the project as it is in harmony with what was previously approved.

City Manager Gary Esplin inquired if the applicant had to show how it was going to deal with the homeowners association.

Associate Planner Mark Bradley explained that this would be shown at the time of the final plat. The CC&Rs would not be reviewed until the final plat is reviewed.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised that in this case the City Council could place a stipulation that before final plat approval there must be an understanding with regard to how the homeowners association will be dealt with as far as the platting process. All the City is doing tonight is approving a plan which was already approved before.

Council Member Whatcott commented that whoever files first wins, and this now puts a burden on the other association to prove why they want to block off streets.

Council Member Gardner commented that the City would say no to blocking off streets, no matter who asked, and the real issue is access to the utilities through private property. He inquired if the City would have public easements or utilities in private streets.

City Manager Gary Esplin replied that the City did so in every PD in town.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised it was his recommendation that the preliminary plat be approved. He commented that while he understood Council Member Whatcott?s
point, on the flip side the original association, by not allowing the applicant to join their association, could hold them up indefinitely. The City would prefer that the associations work together, but apparently this has not occurred.

Mayor McArthur inquired if any conditions could be put on the approval.

City Manager Gary Esplin replied only if the City Council wanted to tell staff how to handle the homeowners association before the final plat was approved.

A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the preliminary plat with the stipulation that the City see the arrangements made with regard to the homeowners association.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman inquired if the City Council wanted staff to come back with a report on the homeowner association status. He was advised that this was what the City Council wanted.

Gary Kuhlmann, representing the applicant, expressed concern that the City Council was involving itself with private contract rights. He advised that his client has met every requirement placed by the City and to now place another requirement is not right nor legal. He advised that City Council approval of the preliminary plat would not allow buyers of homes in his client?s project the right to use private streets belonging to the adjacent PD. This would be policed by the other association and is not a proper mechanism of the plat approval process. If the other association, by refusing to talk to his client about joining associations is an effort to force the City Council into not approving his client?s development, then he may have no choice but to proceed on a property rights issue.

Council Member Gardner clarified that neither he nor his motion inferred that Mr. Kuhlmann?s client be forced to work with the other association, as his motion provided the option of forming a separate association or working with the other association, and it in no way takes away any property rights.

City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the proposed Subdivision Ordinance will be presented at the next Planning Commission meeting, and the City could invoke the pending ordinance doctrine which would require any plat or subdivision to present its association plans. The Mayor will be the last person to sign plats under the new ordinance, and all the City would be doing is asking how the homeowners association is going to be handled before the final plat is signed. The City is not delaying the project, as all it is doing is asking to see how it will be handled.

Council Member Gardner commented that his motion would stand. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, as follows:

Council Member Gardner - aye
Council Member Allen - aye
Council Member Orton - aye
Council Member Whatcott - nay

The motion carried.

FINAL PLATS:
Associate Planner Mark Bradley advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held January 14, 2003, recommended approval of the following final plats:

A. Lexington Hills Townhomes Phase 3. Brent Goodwin is the agent.

B. The Springs Estates Subdivision Phase 4. Paul Jensen is the applicant.

C. The Springs Estates Subdivision Phase 5. Paul Jensen is the applicant.

D. Blackrock Condominiums at Stonebridge Phase 3. Brian McMullin is the agent.

E. Sandstone Shadow Phase 3. Reid Pope is the agent.

A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the final plats and authorize the Mayor to sign them. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

PUBLIC HEARING/AMEND ZONING ORDINANCE:
Public hearing to consider amending the Zoning Ordinance to add a new Chapter 14A Residential Conservation Zone.

Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the purpose of the R-1 Conservation Zone is to preserve the character of existing low density neighborhoods, to recognize what is in place, and establish legal non-conforming uses. Any permitted use allowed in a single family zone will be a permitted use. Vacant property can be used for single family homes. The proposed ordinance effectively down-zones property from multi-family back to R-1 for any new development, but does not characterize

existing multi-family uses as non-conforming. If a home is damaged or destroyed, it can be replaced at the same density as existed when the ordinance was applied. Approval of this ordinance will create a new chapter in the Zoning Ordinance.
Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. There being no public comment, he closed the public hearing.

A motion was made by Council Member Whatcott and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the ordinance with the changes suggested by Mr. Nicholson. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows:

Council Member Whatcott - aye
Council Member Orton - aye
Council Member Allen - aye
Council Member Gardner - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

PUBLIC HEARING/ZONE CHANGE/ORDINANCE:
Public hearing to consider a zone change from R-3 to R-1 Conservation Zone for a block located between 300 and 400 South and 400 and 500 East (Plat B, Block 30).

Community Development Director Bob Nicholson explained that the City was in possession of an application for the zone change signed by residents of this block. Passage of this ordinance would prevent a single family home from being converted to a duplex. There is no vacant land within this block. The zone change is supported by the neighborhood.

Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing.

Dottie Larson explained that she is excited about the zone change, and to her knowledge there has not been any opposition to the proposed zone change.

Doug Alder commented he fully supported the zone change.

There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing.

A motion to approve the zone change was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Allen. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows:

Council Member Gardner - aye
Council Member Allen - aye
Council Member Orton - aye
Council Member Whatcott - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

Mayor McArthur invited several Scouts from Troop 404 to introduce themselves.

REPORT FROM BOARD OF EQUALIZATION FOR SID 99-3:
Report from the Board of Equalization for Special Improvement District 99-3 (Little Valley).

City Manager Gary Esplin advised that the report has been sent to the property owners within the SID, and in order to proceed with creation of the district, the Council must approve the report, make changes to it, or table it.

Mayor McArthur advised that the appropriate public hearings have been held, the City has received many letters and comments on the project, and has met many times on this item. A considerable amount of money has also been put into this project by the City.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised that normally the assessment ordinance would be adopted at the time of the report from the Board of Equalization, but because the City Council has chosen to offer a reduction in assessments to property owners with 1.75 acres or more and who will not develop in the future, agreements must be entered into and bond counsel is requiring all the agreements to be in place before the assessment ordinance is adopted. If the agreements are not all signed, the assessments may have to be amended.

St. George City Council Minutes
January 23, 2003
Page Seven

Mayor McArthur explained that those who have parcels of property larger than 1.75 acres will be given an opportunity to sign an agreement not to develop their property in exchange for a reduced assessment.

City Manager Gary Esplin suggested that a time frame be agreed upon, as interest is accruing on the bonds. He suggested 30 days. For those who still disagree with the assessment, they have the option to litigate.

Mayor McArthur clarified that any appeal after this time would be through the courts.

Glen Bundy commented from the audience that he asked for an audit but has not yet been given the information.

City Manager Gary Esplin replied it was never the City?s intention to have Mr. Bundy perform an audit, as he asked if he could do so. The City has produced all the requested information per G.R.A.M.A. guidelines, but Mr. Bundy has not picked up the information. He has had every opportunity to speak at numerous public hearings. The Board of Equalization has made its recommendations and did the best job it could. It is now time to move forward.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman advised that the information Mr. Bundy requested has been available in the City Recorder?s Officer and is ready to pick up, but Mr. Bundy has not picked it up because he is questioning the copy costs.

Mr. Bundy questioned from the audience if the project was complete. He was advised that it was. He disagreed.

Mayor McArthur advised that this was not a public hearing and input from the audience would not be taken.

A motion to accept the Board of Equalization?s report was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott.

Council Member Orton amended his motion to include the provision that agreements with those affected in SID 99-3 would have to be executed within 30 days, or the assessment would return to the original amount. Council Member Whatcott agreed with the amendment to the motion.

Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried.

REQUEST TO USE PARKING LOT:
Consider a request to use the City parking lot near the Doctor?s Free Clinic for a ?Seniors Helping Seniors? program.

Jeff Stone, applicant, advised that ?Seniors Helping Seniors? is a newly formed non-profit corporation whose purpose is to receive medical rehabilitation items such as wheelchairs, walkers, crutches and canes from people who no longer need them, restore and sanitize them and then loan them out free of charge to anyone who needs them, much like checking out a book from the library. The preferred location for the 9' x 12' modular building with vinyl exterior is in the parking lot owned by the City near the Doctor?s Free Clinic. The building will be manned by volunteers. There will be one 15" sign. The location is temporary until they can move permanently into the new Senior Citizens Center in approximately one year. There will be no outside storage of materials.

Darwin Whittaker, applicant, advised that a community partnership has been established with Deseret Industries to solve warehousing problems.

Council Member Whatcott advised he would prefer to see the building located at the back of the parking lot rather than in the middle of it.

Council Member Gardner concurred.

Mr. Stone replied that they would prefer to see the building located out front where it would be a visible reminder to donate, but he would locate it wherever the Council preferred.

A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Gardner to approve location of the temporary building in the parking lot at the Doctors Free Clinic, with staff making the decision where the building should be located.

January 23, 2003

Council Member Whatcott commented that even though staff probably understands what the Council wants, he was not comfortable with that recommendation as it might be setting a precedent.

Council Member Orton clarified his motion to include the provisions that the building be located in the back portion of the parking lot and that the situation be reviewed in six months. Council Member Gardner agreed with these clarifications.

Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried.

REQUEST TO USE PARK:
Consider approval of a request to use the J. C. Snow Park for a commercial activity. Rebels 4x4 Club, applicant.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the Rebels 4x4 Club would like to hold a ?Show and Shine? activity in the J. C. Snow Park on February 15 and sell merchandise. Staff has reviewed the request and recommends approval subject to making sure the City?s Risk Manager is satisfied with the insurance arrangements.

A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Allen to approve the request subject to the Risk Manager being satisfied with the insurance arrangements. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye.

LANDSCAPING PROJECT AT CITY OFFICE:
Consider approval of the landscaping project for the City Office.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the City wishes to set an example in its landscaping to encourage conservation of water, and other changes will include providing new parking spaces in front of the building and other changes for handicapped parking.

Council Member Orton inquired what portion of the $156,000 cost would be for landscaping.

City Manager Gary Esplin replied he was not sure, but guessed around $100,000.

Council Member Whatcott commented that while he was 100% in agreement with conservation, he was not sure about the example the City was setting by paying an exorbitant amount of money to re-landscape the City Office. He commented that by saving $1000 a year in water costs, it will take 156 years to recoup the cost of the landscaping, and this may not be an efficient use of funds. He inquired if there had been any effort made to partner with local landscaping companies, or ask for their input, or if alternative approaches or designs had been considered. He commented he felt $156,000 was a lot of money to spend on landscaping.

City Manager Gary Esplin replied that this issue had been discussed with the Council several times, and the recommendation to re-landscape the City Office came from the Water and Power Board about two years ago. It was their feeling that the City should set an example for low water use landscaping. Staff has attempted to show alternatives similar to those in the conservation garden. If the Council desires, the landscaping can be left as is, but if it is going to be changed this year, it must be done soon. Ira Hodges did the original plan. Staff is open to suggestions and comments and can do whatever the Council would like.

Council Member Orton commented that although he did not know if this was the right plan or the right time to do it, the City needed to make a statement that residents can beautify their property without extensive water use.

Council Member Whatcott commented that he was not opposed to a change, but there had been no alternatives presented.

Council Member Gardner commented that several alternatives have been presented.

Council Member Whatcott replied that what has been presented has been done in- house.

City Manager Gary Esplin stated he did not know if a landscape architect could do a better job than what has been proposed, and there are only a few in St. George to choose from.



St. George City Council Minutes
January 23, 2003
Page Nine

Mayor McArthur commented he felt the Council would be remiss not to move on the landscaping project realizing that the City must be accountable to the public for the money it spends while trying to set an example for low water use landscaping.

Council Member Gardner inquired if there were an option to minimize costs.

City Manager Gary Esplin replied that the project could be phased in. He suggested the matter could be tabled for two weeks in order to give staff time to come back with exact costs and possible ways to reduce the cost.

Council Member Allen commented she would also like a breakdown on costs for labor and materials

City Manager Gary Esplin commented that the City Council gave staff a directive to design a landscape plan for the City Office. A landscape architect can be hired, if desired, but staff thought they were following what was instructed by the Council.

A motion was made by Council Member Gardner to table the matter for two weeks. The motion was seconded by Council Member Allen. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried.

APPROVAL OF MINUTES:
Consider approval of the minutes of the regular City Council meeting held December 19, 2002.

A motion was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Whatcott to approve the minutes as presented. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried.

Consider approval of the minutes of the regular City Council meeting held
January 9, 2003.

A motion was made by Council Member Gardner and seconded by Council Member Orton to approve the minutes as presented. Mayor McArthur called for a vote, and all voted aye. The motion carried.

City Manager Gary Esplin recommended that the hillside development permit item from the Planning Commission report be tabled from the agenda as the applicant, Ron Stout, was not present.

AUTHORIZE UAMPS REPRESENTATIVE:
Consider authorizing the City?s representative on the UAMPS Board of Directors to approve funding for the Payson Gas Turbine Plant project.

City Manager Gary Esplin advised that an executive session was needed before discussion of this item.

ADJOURN TO EXECUTIVE SESSION:
A motion to adjourn to an executive session to discuss potential litigation was made by Council Member Orton and seconded by Council Member Allen. Mayor McArthur called for a roll call vote, as follows:

Council Member Orton - aye
Council Member Allen - aye
Council Member Gardner - aye
Council Member Whatcott - aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.
