BID OPENING: Consider award of bid for construction of the new hole at the Southgate Golf Course. City Manager Esplin advised that in order to build a new road through the area, the existing No. 7 green at Southgate Golf Course will have to be demolished, a bridge installed, and a new hole built. Two proposals were received for a design/build concept. He advised the issue is further complicated because the new cemetery is being constructed near this new road, and culinary water will have to be used for the first phase of the cemetery until another structure can be built to provide irrigation water to the new cemetery, the park and new soccer area. It was originally thought a new pond would have to be built for irrigation purposes, but it has been City Council Minutes September 23, 1999 Page Three decided the existing pond could be incorporated to water the cemetery. The funding source is also complicated, as the project includes a new road, the new cemetery, and a new golf hole. He advised the original bid was $462,000, but recommended deleting some components of the bid for a total cost of up to $247,700. This amount would allow the City to build the new hole and pond now, and a change order could be done at a later time for a pump and line for the new cemetery. A motion was made by Councilmember Whatcott to award the bid to Rosenberg/Golf Services Group in an amount up to $247,700. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner, and all voted aye. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution adopting the report of the Board of Equalization for SID 98-1. City Manager Gary Esplin advised no protests were received at the Board of Equalization hearings for SID 98-1. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve a resolution adopting the report of the Board of Equalization for SID 98-1. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance confirming the assessment rolls and levying an assessment against certain properties in St. George, Utah Special Improvement District No. 98-1, Washington County, Utah for the purpose of paying the costs of installing curb and gutter and sidewalk, upgrading existing roads, replacing existing drive approaches, installing storm drainage facilities, and replacing existing water system (the ?Improvements?), and completing any miscellaneous work necessary to complete the improvements in a proper and workmanlike manner; reaffirming the establishment and providing for the funding of a Special Improvement Guaranty Fund; establishing the effective date of this ordinance; and related matters. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to adopt the ordinance as presented. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance adopting and incorporating by reference certain traffic and criminal laws of the State of Utah and establishing penalties for violations. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised that because the City prosecutes offenders under the Utah State Code, the City is required to incorporate changes to its municipal code which are made by the legislature each year to the State Code. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve the ordinance as presented. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance amending Chapter 8, Title 6, St. George City Code, clarifying the civil status of handicapped zone and fire lane parking infractions, and providing penalties. City Council Minutes September 23, 1999 Page Four City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised the proposed ordinance reclassifies handicapped and fire lane parking violations from criminal to civil to bring them in line with other parking violations. The change, however, will not affect the amount of the fine. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to approve the ordinance as presented. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner. A roll call vote was taken, and all voted aye. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance amending Chapter 1, Title 6, St. George City Code, providing for an additional trespassing offense. City Attorney Jonathan Wright explained the proposed ordinance would bring the City in line with what is allowed in the State Code with regard to trespassing offenses. A motion was made by Councilmember Whatcott to approve the ordinance as presented. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom. A roll call vote was taken, and all voted aye. ORDINANCE: Consider approval of an ordinance amending Chapter 2, Title 6, St. George City Code, providing for notice and a hearing prior to the destruction of an attacking dog. City Attorney Jonathan Wright advised that a recent case prompted the City Prosecutor to streamline the City?s process for destruction of a vicious dog. A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to approve the ordinance as presented. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen. A roll call vote was taken, and all voted aye. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution of the City Council of the City of St. George, Washington County, Utah (the ?City?) authorizing and approving the execution of an annually renewable lease/purchase agreement, dated as of October 1, 1999 (the ?Lease?), by and between the City, as Lessee, and Zions First National Bank, as Lessor (the ?Trustee?); authorizing the execution, sale and delivery by the Trustee of taxable certificates of participation; Series 1999, in the total principal amount of $1,989,000, representing a proportionate interest in the City?s lease payments under the Lease; authorizing the execution of an indenture of trust and pledge and other documents required in connection therewith; authorizing the refinancing of land; authorizing the taking of all other actions necessary to the consummation of the transaction contemplated by this Resolution; and related matters. City Manager Gary Esplin explained that when the trade was made with Stephen Wade for property the new convention center sits on, Mr. Wade assumed purchase of the property across from St. George Ford. At that time the City issued taxable notes called certificates of participation to allow him to use that financing to purchase the property. The City has met with Zions Bank, and it has agreed to extend the terms for another three years at Mr. Wade?s request. The City is acting only as a conduit, and has no obligation to pay the debt. The security is the property itself if Mr. Wade does not make the payments. There are no taxable notes, and the new note will have the same terms as the previous note. City Council Minutes September 23, 1999 Page Five A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve the resolution as presented. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution authorizing a notice of intention to create a special improvement district in the Southgate area. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch explained that the transportation improvement plan includes a proposal to extend a road from Bluff Street where Hilton Drive hooks in to Bluff going along the toe of the Black Hill southerly to Hilton Drive. He displayed a drawing of the proposed road alignment. A SID was eventually anticipated to help fund the new road, along with transportation improvement funds from the 1/4% sales tax, however, staff is recommending creation of a SID now as the property owners are amenable to an SID subject to certain terms. The road will be a 100' right-of-way, and at least three lanes would be built first all the way through. Then if the property owners so desire, they can add to those lanes with additional lanes, curb, gutter, and sidewalk up to seven lanes. The base assessment would be distributed on an acreage basis. The City has analyzed the cost of an additional two lanes at $265,000, and feels this would be the City?s share of the project. However, the property owners feel the City should give more because of the extra wide right-of-way, and Mr. Bulloch recommended the City increase its contribution to $465,000. A roadway dedication plat would then be recorded to tie all the streets together, and Black Ridge Development would fully improve 250 West, Black Ridge Drive, and all side streets. The City would acknowledge that it has an obligation to widen the street to the full 100' width in the future. Black Ridge Development, the primary party, will pay 65% of the assessment; the City?s portion will be deducted and the rest spread over the remaining properties. The other property owners are amenable to the assessment. He advised that the Water and Power Department met with the affected property owners, and a main transmission line in the area will need to be upgraded. The SID will extend this transmission line from Bluff Street to 1470 South, and the Water and Power Department will extend the line from 1470 South to the south end at Hilton Drive. Property owners will pay for their own sewer improvements, and there may be a need for traffic signals. The Laytons are not ready to develop right now, but they would like assurance that they will benefit from the road, and the only place they would have an entrance and exit is at a four way signal at their south property line. Also, the property owners would like the City to consider waiving its 4% administrative fee. The terms presented have been negotiated with the property owners, and staff recommends acceptance. Mayor McArthur inquired if the City had waived its administrative fee in the past, and was advised that it had for the Bloomington Ranches and Middleton SIDs. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the action needed would allow the City to proceed with the notice of intention to create the district. Mr. Bulloch advised that some of the $1,000,000 budgeted for Brigham Road would be used for this project, and the Brigham Road project postponed. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve the resolution as presented. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen. A roll call vote was taken and all voted aye. DELIVERY OF NOTICE OF CERTIFICATION OF ANNEXATION: Mayor McArthur advised he had received from the City Recorder the Certification of Petition for Annexation for the Ledges Annexation. City Council Minutes September 23, 1999 Page Six PUBLIC HEARING ON STREET NAME CHANGE: Public hearing to consider a request for a street name change on Foremaster Ridge. Earl Stark introduced himself to the Mayor and Council and advised he was building a home on Five Sisters Drive. He stated he is new to the area and is not familiar with the history of the Foremaster family, but feels the name Five Sisters Drive does not do justice to the scenery. He suggested Sky View Drive or some other name that better represents the area. Linda Anderson, a resident of Five Sisters Drive, advised the street name has caused confusion when giving her address to others, and she has had several people ask her if the name was associated with polygamy. She stated the name is not attractive and is too long. Mayor McArthur opened the public hearing. Darrel Stucki, on behalf of the Foremaster family, advised the Foremasters are proud of their heritage and would like to retain the street name. Linda Anderson commented that the Foremaster heritage would not be lost in changing the name of Five Sisters Drive, as Foremaster Ridge and Foremaster Drive would remain. Mayor McArthur advised that 45 lots in the subdivision are still owned by the Foremaster family, however, everyone is entitled to petition the City Council for a street name change. Councilmember Isom advised she was opposed to changing the street name, as she felt strongly about identifying and maintaining the heritage of founding families of the community. She stated she could see no reason for changing it. Councilmember Gardner stated that while both sides presented legitimate points, he was not sure enough reasons had been presented for changing the name. He advised his inclination was not to change the name. Councilmember Allen advised that while she agreed with Ms. Anderson, everyone at one point or another experiences confusion when giving out their address. She stated she preferred the name Five Sisters Drive due to its heritage. Councilmember Whatcott stated that while he could understand the petitioners? frustration with the street name, it did not warrant changing the street name as not enough homeowners wanted it changed. Linda Jacobson, a resident of Five Sisters Drive, advised she put the petition to change the street name together. She read a letter from Earl and Kathy Dorius in support of changing the street name. She advised there were legitimate objections to the name Five Sisters Drive such as confusion when the address is given to others, and many inquiries into its possible polygamist origin. She advised she did not care if Sky View Drive was chosen, but a name should be chosen which depicts the beautiful view and is short and pleasant. Mayor McArthur advised that several years ago addresses were changed in the Green Valley area, and the residents are still experiencing problems because of it. City Engineer Dave Demas advised that the proper process has been followed for a street name change, and if the name were going to be changed, now would be the time. He stated that an address changes City Council Minutes September 23, 1999 Page Seven involves a lot of effort and coordination with all utilities, the Postal Service, and 911. He advised he received a letter from the Post Office in opposition to the street name change. There being no further public comment, Mayor McArthur closed the public hearing. Councilmember Gardner inquired of Foremaster family members if they had given consideration to any other name. Earl Wittwer, representing the Foremaster family, stated that none of the family had been approached by the petitioners, and therefore had no idea a street name change was being considered until they received notice from the City. Councilmember Whatcott inquired if there were value in delaying a decision until the matter could be discussed by the petitioners and members of the Foremaster family. It was the consensus of the Foremaster family members present that they would like the name to remain. Linda Jacobson advised she did not intend to exclude Foremaster family members; she simply notified homeowners on Five Sisters Drive. A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to deny the request for a name change, with the comment that nothing would preclude the petitioners from coming back with another name change request at another time. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner, who commented that he hoped the issue would not become a divisive one for the neighborhood. Mayor McArthur called for a vote and all voted aye. SET PUBLIC HEARINGS: Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised the Planning Commission, at their meeting of September 14, 1999, recommended that public hearings be scheduled for October 21, 1999 at 5:00 p.m. for (1) a zone change from R-1-10 to PD Residential for The Trails (Las Sendas) at Snow Canyon; (2) a zone change from R-1-10 to PD Residential for a townhome development on 110.5 acres at the mouth of Paradise Canyon; (3) amend the PD zone at Stonebridge; and (4) an amendment to Chapters 17, 18, 19 and 20 of the Zoning Ordinance to raise the height limit for commercial buildings. A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to set the public hearings as recommended by the Planning Commission. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen, and all voted aye.

Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised the Planning Commission, at their meeting held September 14, 1999, recommended approval subject to the City Council Minutes September 23, 1999 Page Eight conditional use permit being reconsidered if legitimate complaints are received, the hours of operation to not go beyond 7:00 p.m., no more than four students and three clients at a time, no street parking associated with the school, and subject to the requirements of the Fire and Building Departments. The Fire and Building Departments have inspected the site and require installation of a fire extinguisher, grab bars in the bathroom for the disabled, and an entry door with a minimum opening of 32 inches. Additionally, the applicant will be required to add paved parking next to the building so that vehicles will be able to turn around on the site and head out of the driveway instead of backing out. Mr. McGuire advised this use is allowed within the R-1-8 zone with a conditional use permit. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to approve the request subject to the conditions of the Planning Commission and Fire and Building Departments. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom, and all voted aye. ADDITION TO NON-CONFORMING BUILDING: Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting of September 14, 1999, recommended approval to build a carport up to the east side of the property line, adjacent to an existing non-conforming building that has a zero setback along that same property line at 423 East 400 South. Councilmember Gardner inquired if any opposition had been expressed from neighbors. Mr. McGuire advised that no opposition had been expressed, but a letter in support of the request had been received from a neighbor. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve the request as recommended by the Planning Commission. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott, and all voted aye. PRELIMINARY PLAT: Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting of September 14, 1999, recommended approval of the preliminary plat for Huntington at Stonebridge Phase I. He advised the project conforms to the density allowed in that portion of the PD. A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to approve the preliminary plat. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen, and all voted aye. FINAL PLAT: Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held September 14, 1999, recommended approval of the final plat for Riviera Palms Phase 2. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve the final plat and authorize the Mayor to execute it. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott, and all voted aye. FINAL PLAT: Associate Planner Jim McGuire advised that the Planning Commission, at its meeting held September 14, 1999, recommended approval of the final plat for Anasazi Hills at Entrada Phase 2. A motion was made by Councilmember Whatcott to approve the final plat and authorize the Mayor to execute it. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Isom, and all voted aye. City Council Minutes September 23, 1999 Page Nine APPROVAL OF TAXI LICENSE: Consider a request for approval of a taxi license for Redy Taxi. Armando Roderico Garcia, applicant. A motion was made by Councilmember Gardner to approve a taxi license for Armando Roderico Garcia/Redy Taxi. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Allen, and all voted aye. EXPANSION OF GROUND LEASE AT AIRPORT: Consider a request for expansion of a ground lease at the airport. Mercer Management, applicant. City Manager Gary Esplin advised the applicant is requesting expansion of his ground lease to include a 20' strip of property along the west side of his hangar. The Airport Board recommended approval. A motion was made by Councilmember Allen to approve expansion of the ground lease as recommended by the Airport Board. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner, and all voted aye. APPROVAL OF CHANGE ORDER AT WATER RECLAMATION FACILITY: Consider approval of a change order for the water reclamation facility. Regional Wastewater Manager Barry Barnum advised that expansion at the water reclamation facility is nearing completion. A dedication ceremony was scheduled for October 28 at 4:00 p.m. He advised that time is becoming critical on some of the change orders and lead time for equipment ordering. If the change orders are approved quickly, there will be adequate time to get the materials and equipment so that the contractor can complete the work without interruption. He recommended a change order in an amount not to exceed $200,000, as there is still $187,000 in outstanding items to complete, $167,000 of which is for the SCADA system. He advised that Montgomery Watson could contract with the SCADA company to do the work for significantly less than the current contractor, Alder Construction. Montgomery Watson will change the scope of their contract to include the SCADA changes without increasing the amount of their contract and still get the SCADA subcontractor to do the work. There would be considerable savings to the City in the amount of $50,000-$70,000. Mayor McArthur commented that for a project this size, the change orders total only approximately 3%. City Manager Gary Esplin said authorization is needed from the Mayor and Council to proceed with negotiations with Montgomery Watson. Staff?s only concern, however, is to make sure that by using Montgomery Watson, the City is still getting the best price possible. He advised the matter would again be brought back before the Mayor and City Council when the negotiations have been completed. It was the consensus of the Mayor and City Council to proceed with negotiations with Montgomery Watson. APPOINT ADDITIONAL ELECTION JUDGES: A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to appoint additional election judges as recommended by the City Recorder. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Whatcott, and all voted aye. RESOLUTION: Consider approval of a resolution declaring the intention of the City Council of the City of St. George, Washington County, State of Utah, to construct improvements within said municipality consisting of City Council Minutes September 23, 1999 Page Ten sidewalks, street paving, curb and gutter and storm drainage improvements, the installation of water and sewer lines, including hydrants and manholes, and all other miscellaneous work necessary to complete the improvements in a proper workmanlike manner; to create City of St. George, Utah Special Improvement District No. 99-3 (Little Valley); to defray the cost and expenses of said improvement district by special assessments to be levied against the property benefitted by such improvements; to provide notice of intention to authorize such improvements and to fix a time and place for protests against such improvements or the creation of said district; to declare its official intent to reimburse itself for expenditures paid by it prior to the sale of bonds; and related matters. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch advised that Alpha Engineering has gone to extensive research and work on the creation of a special improvement district for the Little Valley area. He stated the City has held off with improvements in this area as long as possible and made exceptions to concurrency requirements, but there is no sewer in the area, homes are continually being built, and the roads and bridges are substandard. He advised there is currently $100,000 in the budget for upgrade of roads in the area, and he recommended putting that sum into the SID. A poll of property owners has been completed, and it is felt that a majority of the property owners are in favor of creation of a SID, however, the only way to be sure is to issue the notice of intention to create the district. A motion was made by Councilmember Isom to approve the resolution as presented. The motion was seconded by Councilmember Gardner. A roll call vote was taken, and all voted aye.

DISCUSSION RE RIVER ROAD TO BRIDGE: Councilmember Whatcott requested an update on the status of improving River Road to the bridge. Public Works Director Larry Bulloch advised the road will be finished to the bridge, and that traffic lights at Convention Center Drive and River Road and Riverside Drive will be synchronized.
