City Council Update 2/13/13

At the City Council work session, Attorney John Brems did a training on open meeting laws and elected officials roles and responsibility.

The City Council discussed rescinding their notice of intent to withdraw from VECC (Valley Emergency Communications Center). On December 31, the council voted and gave notice of their intent to withdraw from this valley-wide emergency dispatch center, as they were concerned that other cities involved may also be withdrawing.

Representatives from Stanley Consultants and UTA presented the locally preferred alternative for the proposed Taylorsville Murray Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project planned. This project would extend from downtown Murray and the 5300 South light rail commuter rail station into Taylorsville along 4700 South and terminating at the Salt Lake Community College. The consultants presented findings from the recently completed environmental study report and illustrated the preferred route.

Ordinance Review Chair Monnica Manuel presented a few maps for possible community councils. The council gave direction to have the boundaries follow council district boundaries and include two community councils per district.
