City Council Summary 4/17/13

John Purvis was appointed as the chair of the Green Committee.

UPD Precinct Chief Tracy Wyant gave awards to several police officers. Last month a group of Girl Scouts has their cookie money stolen outside Walmart. Unified Police Department was able to apprehend the suspects within a matter of days. Wyant gave Taylorsville precinct awards to those who were involved in finding the suspects: Sgt. Stanton VanWagoner, Detectives Michel Valencia, Scott Lloyd, Jesse Allen, Louie Muniz, and Officers Jason Huggard and Juston Ellis.

Chief Wyant also recognized Assistant Chief Wayne Dial who is being transferred out of Taylorsville to serve elsewhere in UPD. Dial has served Taylorsville since 2005 and will be missed.

Kelly Davis from West Valley Animal Control gave his quarterly report. He said that things are going well and the shelter is still headed toward a "no kill" status.

Judge Marsha Thomas gave her quarterly report on the municipal court. She said that case filings are now within 10 percent of where they were last year. Filings include 77 percent for traffic infractions, 16 percent for misdemeanors, and 7 percent for small claims. Last quarter traffic was 74 percent, so it continues to go up.

The city council approved a proclamation declaring May 2013 as Building Safety Month in the City of Taylorsville.

The council approved a renewal for both storm drain services and public works services for fiscal year 2013/2014.

The council also approved the 2013 municipal voting precincts and polling places for the city.
