Citizens AgendaCouncil 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://agendas.provo.org

PROVO MUNICIPAL COUNCIL
Work Meeting Agenda
1:00 PM, Tuesday, April 23, 2019
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 presentation regarding proposed changes to the Parking Enforcement Fee Structure. (19-046)
- A new fee structure is proposed to comply with Utah Legislature HB0336 which modified the assessment of late fees for violations and will cause the City to be out of compliance as of July 1st, 2019. Also, an increase is proposed for all violation fees to cover expected Parking Enforcement operations costs.
- Parking Enforcement started the transition to become a stand alone function separate from Police and was officially under the oversight of the Customer Service Department in December of 2017. After a full year of analyzing the operations of Parking Enforcement, including staffing, rebranding, equipment, establishing routes, etc., as well as identifying potential immediate and future needs for the enforcement effort, an operating costs versus revenue analysis was completed. An increase in our current operating budget and the budget for the next few years will be necessary. A one-time increase of 25% for each violation fee is proposed.
- A discussion about the review of the Urban Deer Program. (19-147)
- In 2016, the City began an urban deer control program that will end on August 1, 2019. The Council has the opportunity to evaluate the program and determine whether to continue it. Public feedback was gathered on Open City Hall.
