5. 2nd CDBG PUBLIC HEARING. Public hearing opened at 7:05 p.m. Mr. Creamer explained that we need some specific information in the minutes to support our application. The hearing is held to allow citizens to provide input concerning a project for a Community Development Block. The City applied for funds for infrastructure for a new City park to be located on an empty City block located at 500 North 500 East. Mr. Creamer will be the project manager for this infrastructure project. We successful in our application in the regional and ranking process and received approval for a grant totaling $179,368. We have also been notified since that time that the CDBG funding will be a little larger than the Six County had anticipated, so that grant could go up by $70,000 to $80,000 for us. The project is basically to put curb, gutter, sidewalk and asphalt shoulders around the full City block. Mayor Ogden asked if there were any comments from the public. Hearing no comments, Mayor Ogden closed at 7:07 p.m.

10. OTHER BUSINESS. Councilmember Barnett discussed all of the signs on the light poles and that a citizen had suggested putting up a community bulletin board in a central location where things could be posted so that they quit posting signs on the light poles. He suggested that the side of the Knit & Craft building could be used and then we could have someone clean it off once a week. Mr. Creamer stated that there was an attempt at this when the parking lot in front of the City offices was built back in the 1980’s.
Councilmember Barnett reported that the weeds coming through the bike path where the chip seal was done. There is also an ant hill right in the middle of the bike path up by the cemetery.
Mayor Ogden introduced Faylyn Catmull with Centracom. She indicated that they want to do a service project, so if there is something that they could do, she asked that the City let her know.
Councilmember Burrows reported on a trench across the road on the south side of that intersection at 600 North 500 East that sunk.
Rotary Club put in trees along the new parking lot at the Sevier Valley Center. Memorial Day breakfast will be at 8 a.m. on Monday, and the program will be at 10 a.m. Councilmember Barnett asked if the City is paying anything on the new block wall that is going in along the west boundary of the cemetery. Mr. Langston stated that the City has always participated, so we did agree to pay half of that wall.
Councilmember Christensen stated that the tree in the middle of the parking lot is not doing well and she would hate to lose it. She wondered about hiring Atlas Trees to come and look at this. There are also some of the trees at the City Park that look like they are dying. We have not planted any trees at the City Park and one of these days it is just going to be bare.
Mayor talked with Nick Musto and he would be happy to look at the trees. Mayor Ogden suggested that the he and Councilmember Christensen get together with the tree guy and look at the trees.
