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
12:00 pm, Tuesday, January 18, 2022
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 on the Single Audit for Fiscal Year 2021. (22-013)
Audit of federal programs including the financial statements of the governmental activities, the business-type activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of Provo City Corporation (the City) as of and for the year ended June 30, 2021, and the related notes to the financial statements, which collectively comprise the City’s basic financial statements.
An appropriation for East Bay Shopping Center Participation and Reimbursement Agreement – second payment. (22-008)
On June 2018 the Municipal Council approved a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute an agreement between Provo City and East Bay Shopping Center LLC, the ownership group of the East Bay Shopping Center at 979 S University Ave. At the meeting the Council was presented with a request to reimburse the ownership group for the remodel, construction, and opening of a new Ross retail store, which would serve as a magnet to attract other retailers to fill this retail center. The reimbursement would be funded through retail sales tax increment above the established predetermined sales tax revenue generated by the retail center as of a certain date. The baseline revenue was established at $90,099, which represents one half of one percent of total sales generated at the center, or that portion of sales tax revenue received by Provo City from the retail center, as provided by the State of Utah. In this Agreement, Provo City will continue to receive the baseline amount of $90,099. The developer/owner will receive on an annual basis, a reimbursement against their actual out-of-pocket expenses, that is, any additional sales tax revenue above and beyond the baseline amount of $90,099. The term of this agreement runs for ten years. In that time the developer/owner will be able to be reimbursed for up to one half of the out-of-pocket costs for the above-described expenses. The target reimbursement amount as per the agreement is $1,154,385 which is one half of the total out-of-pocket expenses which were $2,308,770. This is the second payment in the ten-year agreement, that is $75,734 which represents the amount over the baseline of $90,099. The total received in 2 years is $114,358.
Policy Items Referred from the Planning Commission
An ordinance amending Provo City Code to adopt policies and procedures for the dedication of private streets and utilities. Citywide Application. (PLOTA20210360).
The City has recently received multiple requests from owners (mainly HOAs) of private roads in Provo that their streets and/or utilities be converted to public ownership. City Code does not currently have a procedure in place for accomplishing this, nor does it list factors to consider when evaluating such a request. The proposed ordinance achieves both objectives. Planning Commission recommended approval.
A presentation reviewing Provo City General Plan - Part 1 of 3 (22-011).
The newly drafted Provo City General Plan has been divided into 3 parts, each of which will be given a Work and Regular Council meeting for discussion and public input. This presentation and discussion is for the first of these three sections and includes the following General Plan components: Staff’s intro, schedule/timeline; Introduction; A Welcoming Community; Stewardship of the Outdoors; Growing Together.
