Citizens Agenda for Meetings on December 5, 2017

Citizens Agenda



Council meeting agendas are often difficult for people to navigate. Filled with jargon and legal requirements on how an item must be listed, it can be a challenge to determine what Council members are actually discussing or deciding on.

What follows is a staff interpretation of the agendas.

The official published agendas and supporting materials can be found here:  http://publicdocuments.provo.org/sirepub/meet.aspx

PROVO MUNICIPAL COUNCIL
Work Meeting Agenda
12:00 PM, Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Work Meetings are designed to be a less formal venue for discussion among Council Members. Generally, no public input is taken during the meeting.

    • The Public Works Department will be presenting on financing options for either upgrading the current wastewater treatment plant or building a new wastewater treatment plant.

Summary of Action - Meetings on October 31, 2017

PROVO MUNICIPAL COUNCIL
Work Meeting Summary of Action
9:00 AM, Tuesday, October 31, 2017
Room 310, City Conference Room
351 W Center, Provo, UT 84601
Agenda

Approval of Minutes
July 18, 2017 Work Meeting
October 3, 2017 Work Meeting
Approved by unanimous consent.

Closed Meeting 

1. The Municipal Council or the Governing Board of the Redevelopment Agency will consider a motion to close the meeting for the purposes of holding a strategy session to discuss pending or reasonably imminent litigation, and/or to discuss the purchase, sale, exchange, or lease of real property, and/or the character, professional competence, or physical or mental health of an individual in conformance with § 52-4-204 and 52-4-205 et. seq., Utah Code.
A closed meeting was held.

Business 

2.  A discussion on the process for appointing an interim mayor (17-132)
 

A motion approving the amended Council intent statement (below) regarding the process for appointing an interim was Approved 6:0, with Council member Kay Van Buren excused.
If a vacancy occurs in the office of mayor prior to the end of the year, the Provo Municipal Council will follow the procedure outlined in Utah § 20A-1-510 to fill that vacancy. It is anticipated that, if necessary, the appointment would occur at the Council meeting on December 5th. Public notice of that meeting would therefore need to be given no later than November 21st, the same day the Board of Canvassers meets to certify the election result.


The Council recognizes that this midterm vacancy situation is different from many others in that by December 5th, certified results will already exist for the election held on November 7th, by which the citizens of Provo will have selected a duly elected mayor to take office on January 1st. While the appointment process will follow State and City law, it is the sense of the Council at this time that the most appropriate course of action will likely be to appoint the mayor-elect to serve as interim mayor until the end of the year.
