A discussion regarding short-term rental properties

Councilors requested staff to review short-term rentals' status including regulation, zoning, enforcement, and other policies



A discussion regarding tenant-landlord governance and rental dwelling policies and regulations. 

Early in the year, the Council submitted a variety of requests regarding tenant landlord governance. This presentation aims to go over how the City is limited in some areas of enforcement and ordinance creation and what the City is currently doing to enforce.



A discussion on tiered water rates

This is a follow-up to the August 1st discussion on tiered water rates where the Council motioned to have public works return with recommendations on expanding the tiers. Public Works will be engaging their consultant, Bown Collins & Associates who will use the most recent water data to formulate options. The last time this group performed a tiered water rate study they were given the following goals from the city: 

• Meet state law for tiered water rates 

• Be revenue neutral for the City (i.e. generate the same amount of money as generated by current rates) 

• Have minimal impact on the average water user in Provo 

• Keep rates affordable for indoor water use used to meet basic health and sanitation needs 

• Provide an incentive for additional conservation of water (especially outdoors) without placing overly punitive costs on any individual users 

The purpose of this discussion is to review the goals and decide if there are goals, we would like to modify, delete, or add.



A presentation regarding the River District Project & boundary line adjustments.

As part of the new River District residential and commercial development in north Provo, the developers are exploring the potential of a boundary line adjustment with the City of Orem. The Council received a presentation on August 1st where they indicated that they would like to receive context and more detail regarding this adjustment from Administrative staff. As the City has not received the official plat maps from Dudley and Associates, staff will review some drawings to show the proposed areas.

In addition, the Council requested a proposal from Noorda regarding penalties for not achieving certain project milestones.
