Given Sandy City’s recent challenges, which resulted in a ‘do not drink’ order, Park City sought to discuss the ways in which a similar situation can be avoided by Park City’s Water Department. Staff discussed the risks, technologies available, water treatment, distribution, monitoring tools, transparency, and other items related to the City’s drinking water.

Hillside Avenue Update
Staff updated Council on Hillside Avenue improvements and Old Town circulation and traffic. The recommended improvements will be completed in a three-tier approach, with tier-one improvements delayed as a result of Sundance Film Festival and winter road conditions. Tier-one improvements are nearing completion, and ‘Residential Area’ signs will be installed. After a short discussion, Council requested that this item return at a later date in May for a work session to address the actions taken thus far.

Council Disclosures
On March 20, 2019, the Treasure Hill purchase closed and the City is now the proud owner. Mayor Beerman thanked everyone who helped make the purchase a reality. Please stay tuned for details regarding a community celebration in June. The City’s Planning Department will begin the zoning process for open space, and the conservation process will begin as well.

 

Public Input
Residents from Hillside Avenue were in attendance to discuss the history of the road, to share their experience with vehicle traffic, and to ask questions regarding next steps. There was a brief discussion with Council members, who highlighted the road improvements that have been made to date and what can be expected to help resolve the traffic issue on the residential street.

 

CONSENT AGENDA

Council approved the following item from the consent agenda:

  • A mine maintenance agreement with Jordanelle Special Services District (JSSD) for a one-year term with automatic annual renewals thereafter until terminated by either party. On average, Park City receives roughly 38% of its water supply from the Judge and Spiro mining tunnels, and maintaining these water sources is part of the City’s sustainable water resources goal. This is a renewal of a previous agreement with JSSD.
