PROVO MUNICIPAL COUNCIL
Work Meeting Agenda
12:30 PM, Tuesday, December 18, 2018
Work Meetings are designed to be a less formal venue for discussion among Council Members. Generally, no public input is taken during the meeting.
- A discussion on a statement of intent regarding the voting policy in Provo City. (18-088)
- Ranked choice voting allows voters to rank candidates in order of choice. If your top candidate can’t win, your vote counts for your next choice, until someone wins with a majority. Utah passed legislation earlier this year to allow cities to pilot ranked choice voting. A presentation was given at the September 25 work meeting. Cities have until December 31 to indicate to the State if they would like to utilize ranked choice voting in the 2019 election.
- Erica Gaddis from the State Division of Water Quality will be here to present on the recent updates to requirements.
- In FY 2016, the Municipal Council appropriated $35,000 to fund an urban deer removal program on an interim basis. On May 15, 2018, the council evaluated the program and voted to extend the program for an additional year. In that motion, the council recommended the funding be included in the FY 2019 budget. Through the changes that were made to the budget, that change was not incorporated into the new-year budget. The annual cost for administering the program last year approached $20,000. The request before the council is to appropriate an additional $20,000 to fund the FY2019 portion of the program.
