Citizens Agenda for Meeting on October 31, 2017

Citizens Agenda (1).pngCitizens 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:

Work Meeting Agenda
9:00 AM, Tuesday, October 31, 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.

Please note that due to scheduling accommodations, the Council will convene the public meeting at 9:00 AM, then following Approval of Minutes, immediately move into the Closed Meeting portion. It is anticipated that the Closed Meeting will adjourn and the Council will reconvene in the public meeting setting at approximately 10:15 AM.

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.
    • Closed meetings (aka executive meetings) are held without the public present and must meet one of the conditions listed above.
  1. A discussion on the process for appointing an interim mayor (17-132)
    • In the event that Mayor Curtis resigns before his term expires, an interim mayor will need to be appointed. The process and timing for this are spelled out in Utah State Code and Provo City Code. Council will be discussing this process to determine some of the details in order to be prepared.
  2. A presentation on Wastewater planning (17-131)
    • The Public Works Department will be presenting capital improvement projects (CIP) for wastewater and what the options are for infrastructure, particularly on the west side of the city. Information on options for the wastewater treatment plan will also be presented and discussed.
  3. A discussion on adopting the Provo Parking Strategic Management Plan as a guide for decision making and policy formation (17-126)
    • This was discussed at the October 17 work meeting and requests were made for some edits and updates to the plan before bringing it back to Council. The discussion focuses on officially adopting the Provo Parking Strategic Management Plan, developed by Kimley-Horn Associates, at a future Council meeting as a guide for decision making and policy formation.
