North Salt Lake:
In the City Council meeting Tuesday:
- Mayor Simmons clarified that the 465 acres of Cannon property, recently annexed into the city for the purpose of a city golf course, isn't officially a portion of the city until the course's financing is finalized and the deed is recorded by the city recorder. Simmons explained that the chance is slight that the financing will fail but that legally the city could still probably force the annexation process.
- Tabled a request by Rulon Crosby to help relocate a main, 200-pound pressure water line pending further study.
- Decided to consider a funding request by Scott Jensen from the Bountiful Arts Council for an additional contribution of $1,000 because of this year's special "Summer Fest," Aug. 8-9. The city normally provides an annual contribution of $1,000 to the council. It will consider the additional amount at next month's budget hearings.
- Voted to rezone 57 acres of property adjacent to Flying J from M-2 (heavy industry) to M-1 (light industry). U.S. Petroleum had earlier been granted a rezoning to built a refinery but has since decided not to pursue the construction.
- Honored Jerry Seelos, city planning commission member, for four years of outstanding service. Seelos recently resigned because of time constraints. He has been replaced by Bill Wright.
- Decided to review funding and options available for a sound system in city hall.
