temperatures do set in. Councilman Norris believes it could be accomplished in one day
and he will talk to the other members of the water board to see what can be done to

will talk to Blaine soon. He further explained that there might be a problem with the psi

done if at all possible.
The Water Board will make sure that he is not being charged any monthly fees

purchasing. Nathan showed a site plan for the home. They have a letter from the State

the motion carried.
5- Approval of minutes/ report on council action/ election results
Councilman Norris moved to approve the October 2009 minutes with
Councilwoman Grose seconding. The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.
6- Administrative issues: Administrative Building permits, water, open seats, etc.
The Planning Council Member open positions are Eric Bunker, Diane Grose, Kim
Norris and Lynn Crisler. Chairman Bunker has received one letter of interest from Jay
Binkerd. Kim Norris and Eric Bunker plan on keeping their names in for next year. The
open positions will be appointed in January by the town council.
Merry Duggin, town recorder, will put information about the Planning Council
openings on the town website and also in the Wasatch Wave, under the “ads” section
instead of the legal section where it will more easily be seen, and have it announced on
the local radio station encouraging the town residents to submit applications.
Council action items: Chairman Bunker showed the members a “hundred year”
flood plain map that is issued by state and federal agencies. They will issue a new one
next year in 2010. The agencies look at different changes and new information and
determine the extent of damage that might occur in the event of a flood. This results in
the government allowing the people to keep their insurance premiums as they are or get a new policy at the old cost before the new areas are put into policy.
There are no administrative issues at this time.
Merry Duggin informed the Commission that Dean Sellers, under the corporation
name Stars & Stripes, has filed bankruptcy in Arizona. He also filed for bankruptcy in
Utah under the corporation name West Daniels Land Association. This action has
imposed an automatic stay on all legal proceedings. The town has hired a bankruptcy
attorney and filed a motion with the court to allow construction on the new water tank to
continue. The hearing is scheduled to be held in Salt Lake City on December 3rd.
