 1.  Roll Call.  Roll call was answered by Steve Kunzler, Pat Hansen, and David Mower.  Greg Bean participated by telephone.    Brion Terry, Jeff Albrecht, and Monte Turner were excused. 
 
City Staff Present:   Zoning Administrator Gaylen Matheson and Deputy City Recorder Michelle Curtis.   
 
Also Present:  Brad Mansfield and Marsha Smith
 
2.    Major Home Occupation Permits:
       A.  Consider approving Randy Randle’s application to conduct a  business called Rand’s Barber Shop to be located at 325 South 100 East (CS zone, C-1 use).   Brad Mansfield is representing his fiancé in requesting approval of Rand’s Barber Shop.  The shop will be located in a garage behind the home.  There was previously a shoe repair shop in this garage. 
 
Mr. Mansfield said that he needs to put in a sink.  He was unsure if he can stub into the home’s sewer line or if he has to stub in directly to the City’s line.  He wondered also if they are required to have a restroom. 
 
Gaylen Matheson advises that because this is a home business, there does not need to be a restroom for customers. 
 
Mr. Mansfield was asked where customers will park?  Mr. Mansfield said he would like to pipe the ditch that runs along the north side of the property.  The City is doing  a street project on 100 East which will go around the corner of this home.   If he can get approval for on-street parking until the City is finished with their 100 East project, then he will cover the ditch and have them park at the side of the home.  He was told that the 100 East project won’t be starting until spring and so he has time to get with the City engineer and work with them as far as what he needs to do in order to pipe the ditch. 
 
David Mower motioned to approve a major home occupation permit allowing Randy Randle to conduct a business called Rand’s Barber Shop at 325 South 100 East (CS zone, C-1 use).  Pat Hansen seconded the motion.  The motion carried unanimously. 
 
       B.  Consider approving Marsha Smith’s application to conduct a business called The Bug Smith Inc. at 268 West 400 North (RM-11 zone, C-1 use).
 
Mrs. Smith said she runs her business from her home.  The home is used as an office.  This is a pest control business.  Her son is the technician.  They use a little Ford truck.  They buy chemicals as needed from Steve Regan.  They keep the chemicals in a tool box in the back of the truck.  They have a 50-gallon sprayer in the back of the truck.  They don’t store any chemicals other than what is on the truck.  They buy a case of chemicals which is four little bottles.  The chemicals are government approved.  She has no children. 
 
They spray 6 to 7 months out of the year and the rest of the time of the truck would be in the garage.  Her son doesn’t live at this home.  The truck will be parked at his home in the summer months.   He parks it at a home in Richfield where he parks in his driveway or back by a garage behind a fence. 
 
Steven Kunzler said his concern is that he would be worried about kids playing on the truck and perhaps getting into the left-over chemical.   Mrs. Smith said she keeps the spray locked up and secure.  They’ve been in business since 1999 and have to keep it secure in order to maintain their insurance.
 
David Mower asked if they use up everything they have mixed in the tank?  She said it depends on the day.  He tries to have it empty at the end of the day.  A concern would be having an unattended truck with leftover chemicals parked on the street.  Mrs. Smith said they lock up the nozzles in a tool box in the truck.  A child would not be able to get into the tank and they would not be able to get anything out of the tank.  The tank sits down in the truck bed.  
 
David Mower motioned to approve a major home occupation permit allowing Marsha Smith to conduct a business called The Bug Smith Inc. at 268 West 400 North (RM-11 zone, C-1 use).  Pat Hansen seconded the motion.  The motion carried unanimously.   
 
3.    Other Business:
        A.   Discuss General Plan and Master Transportation Plan.  Tabled. 
        B.   Other items. 
 
4. Adjournment.  Adjourned at 7:00 p.m.
 
 PASSED AND APPROVED on the 7th day of October, 2015.
