REPORT FROM PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR
Randy Randall, Public Works Director, reported the snow pack
on mountains next to Centerville is around 80% and the city’s
water levels and wells are also doing fairly well. He said staff projects there
will be adequate water and their biggest concern, at this point, is getting
all of the City’s pump houses completed and operating
by this fall. He said most of the City’s wells will be
completed within the next five to seven months. He reviewed possible conservation
efforts that would benefit the city and also discussed the importance of educating
the citizens with regard to water conservation. He said there will be an article
in the next City newsletter on water conservation. He explained an ordinance
requiring no watering between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. would be
coming before the City Council in the near future. The Council agreed educating
the citizenry is of utmost importance and that an ordinance restricting watering
hours would be beneficial.
Councilman Gold made a motion to approve the following
a. Mountain States Supply in the amount of $18,390.00 for
the Park Hills Booster Station valves and fittings.
b. Nickerson Company, Inc. in the amount of $35,951.00 for

The motion was seconded by Councilwoman Randall and passed by
unanimous roll-call vote (5-0).

PUBLIC HEARING -- AMENDMENT TO SUBSECTION
12-310-3(4)(B) OF CENTERVILLE ZONING ORDINANCE REGARDING TIME LIMITS -- CONSIDER
ORDINANCE NO. 2003-02
Steve Thacker reviewed the proposed change to Section 12-310-2(4)(B)
with the Council. He said staff, the Deputy City Attorney, and the Planning
Commission are in favor of this change.
At 8:20 p.m. Mayor Deamer opened the public hearing.
Justin Clarke, 398 East 300 North, said he agrees with
this change and asked if there was a time frame or wait before a development
could be approved. He suggested adding a clause stating no more than a 45-day
wait before an application is addressed.
Staff and the Council responded by stating there are additional
ordinances in place to guarantee development applications are dealt with in
a timely manner.
Mayor Deamer closed the public hearing.
Councilman Gold made a motion to adopt Ordinance No.
2003-02, repealing Subsection 12-310-3(4)(B). The motion was seconded by Councilman
Gill and passed by unanimous roll-call vote (5-0).
Mayor Deamer discussed the South Davis Fire District and the
need for additional facilities with the Council. He reviewed the proposal for
consolidation and how it would affect Centerville with regard to cost and personnel.
The Council and staff explored alternative solutions and ideas regarding this
issue, including Centerville running their own fire department. He said the
South Davis Fire District has entered into an agreement with Bountiful City
stating that either fire department will respond to the other’s
call if they are closer to the site. He said he will continue to move toward
consolidation and explained an Interlocal Agreement would be the next step.
Mayor Deamer said he is still taking suggestions for a Garden
Walk Chairman. He also said he would like to have a Council member work closely
with the Garden Walk Committee as well as with the 4th of July Committee.
Mayor Deamer also reported that the owners of the property west
of the cemetery obtained their own appraisal, which significantly countered
the City’s. He said this item will be reviewed in the
future with the Council once those appraisals have been reviewed.
CITY MANAGER UPDATE
Mr. Thacker discussed the problems with the sound system in
the Council chambers. He suggested longer microphones, which would be a minimal
cost. He also suggested consulting a sound engineer regarding the best solution.

Pheasantbrook now has adequate fire protection.

with the Council a diagram explaining the relationship between UTOPIA, Dynamic
b. Update regarding Centerville Market place proposals - Mr.
Lutz updated the Council on several possible development proposals within
Market Place, including, retail, restaurants, movie theater, bank, and car
dealership. He explained a movie theater and a car dealership are not currently
allowed under the development agreement for Market Place and Target is not
in favor of such. Mr. Lutz and the Council discussed options to allow for
such uses and possible incentives to motivate Target in the same direction.
Councilman Gold said he would be willing to speak with the Regional Manager
of Target to discuss ideas and concerns.
c. Request from Davis County for $500 contribution for Cultural
Facilities Master Planning Project - The Council agreed, due to lack of information,
this item should be brought back at a later date.
