Citizens Agenda for Meetings on January 7, 2020

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.

PROVO MUNICIPAL COUNCIL
Work Meeting Agenda
1:00 pm, Tuesday, January 7, 2020

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

Business
  1. A training on the Open and Public Meetings Act and on Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) requests. (20-006)
    • Utah State law requires Council members to receive annual training on the Open and Public Meetings Act. State Law 52-4-104 says, “The presiding officer of the public body shall ensure that the members of the public body are provided with annual training on the requirements of this chapter." This training will fulfill that requirement.
  2. A presentation regarding updates on new City Center Building design. (20-013)
    • Scott Henderson will update the Council about the designs for the new City Center Building, especially the Council Office and Chambers.
  3. A presentation regarding Wastewater plans. (20-014)
    • Dave Decker, Director of Public Works, will present to the Council about plans for wastewater infrastructure and management. Proper wastewater management will be a key piece in preparing for anticipated population growth, especially on the west side of Provo. The wastewater treatment facility will also be rebuilt on the current site.
  4. A discussion regarding past Council goals and objectives. (20-016)
    • The Council had identified several goals and objectives for 2019. Councilor Harding will discuss these past goals and objectives in order to frame the new goals for 2020.
