At Tuesday’s meeting, the Council
- discussed an interlocal agreement with the Utah Transit Authority. The $5.3 million sales tax revenue allocation will be used to add and expand service on key bus routes in Salt Lake City as well as other transit related service improvements. The Council has held multiple hearings and briefings on this topic and will likely take action on February 19.
- discussed proposals at the Utah State Legislature that may impact Salt Lake City. Specifically, the Council discussed a proposed bill that could result in a boundary adjustment between Millcreek and Salt Lake City that would significantly and negatively impact the City’s residents and tax revenue. The Council will continue to discuss this proposal as details are released.
- approved several board appointments.
- heard from about 30 individuals who would like to see a lease extended for a City-owned shooting range in Parley’s Canyon. The lease is overseen by the Administration.
- requested updates from Mayor Jackie Biskupski’s Administration about:
- if the Administration has pursued litigation against a surveyor who made an error in surveying a piece of property that cost the City several hundred thousand dollars,
- when an update to the Impact Fee Plan will be available, and
- the status of a golf fund transmittal that will include details about an estimated subsidy from the general fund and ways to avoid such subsidies going forward.
