Council Work Session - May 9, 2012

The council meeting began with a discussion on community councils. In Mayor Wall's State of the City address he said that he would like to see community councils come to fruition. The city already has an ordinance for community councils, but has not enacted them. Michael Stott, a resident of Taylorsville who works for Salt Lake City's Mayor's Office as a liaison for their community councils, volunteered to rewrite the ordinance and give input. He came to the meeting and answered questions on the different ways the city can do community councils - either as an advisory body to the city, or as a non-profit independent group. His suggestion for the city was to operate community councils as advisory bodies. He also suggested having the councils districted - one for each of the five city council districts. The city council decided to consider the new ordinance after the budget is passed mid June.

The other item on the agenda was discussion of the budget. The council reviewed the revenue in the 2012-2013 budget.

No citizens spoke during the open citizen comment time.
