Three homeowners along Sunset Drive, where land slippage this spring caused considerable property damage, still believe the city is at least partially liable for their plight and will plead their case at the next City Council meeting Aug. 20. Homeowners Shane Cordingly, Kevin Hancock and Gavin Kirby have all experienced damage from land slippage near 1851 Sunset Drive.
Kirby said the three's research on the issue shows some city liability. They want to share that information with the council.City manager Alex Jensen said he still has a different opinion - the city of Layton has no legal liability in the matter.
However, he said the city has already spent a significant amount of money studying the cause of the land slippage in hopes of finding a solution.
- In another Sunset Drive issue, Councilman Brent Allen said speeding has become a real safety issue along the street. Since a dip in the road was recently removed, drivers speed through the area, creating a safety problem.
"Someone's going to get killed," he said.
The police plan to step up speed limit enforcement along the street.
