BUSINESS LICENSE DISCUSSION/APPROVAL

 

EZ 2 Plez, Jeff Forsberg

 

Mr. Forsberg explained that he has purchased Bear Lake Interiors and has combined it with EZ 2 Plez. They are in the process of getting started so they need a business license for the retail sales and the cabinets. In Utah he needs a specialty license to install hardwood flooring and laminate. They will install everything that they sell. They do pay a use tax on the materials and he will check to see if they need a sales tax number.

 

Council Member Gray made the motion to accept the business license for EZ 2 Plez upon finding out the question regarding collecting taxes in Utah and addressing that as need be. Council Member Leonhardt seconded the motion. Council Member Satterthwaite asked if he would need a contractor’s license before he receives the business license. Mr. Forsber said that he is looking to see what type of license that he needs. Council Member Seiler suggested that we stipulate that this approval is for carpet installation only and when he gets the license for the other items he comes back for approval of that. No vote taken and motion died.

 

Council Member Gray made the motion to accept the business license for EZ 2 Plez with the stipulation that it is carpet installation only and he needs to get the tax information resolved. Council Member Leonhardt seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

Bear Lake Country Store, Tina Wolford

 

Ms. Wolford explained that she would like to re-open the Pickleville store. She is leasing the store from Mr. Stone. She would like to do shakes, etc, but they will make the shakes inside the store. She said that she is going to have comparative prices with everyone else in the valley.

 

Council Member Satterthwaite asked if she would need to have a food handler’s permit and a health certificate for the shake shop. Mr. Stone said that he has been working with the Health Department for those items. They will bring the shake shop inside the store. They have the sales tax number.

 

Council Member Gray made the motion to accept the business license for the Bear Lake Country Store following getting the food handler’s permit information, the health certificate and also the sales tax number. The motion was changed to not require the food handler’s because they are not going to open the shake shop at this time; that will come at a future time. Council Member Seiler seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

BEER LICENSE/PERMIT DISCUSSION AND APPROVAL

 

Bear Lake Country Store, Tina Wolford

 

This request is to sell beer at the Bear Lake Country Store. This will be closed containers for off-premise consumption. They are not selling the hard alcohol at the store.

 

Council Member Gray made the motion to accept the application for the retail beer license for the Bear Lake Country Store. Council Member Leonhardt seconded the motion. Council Member Seiler said that according to our ordinance we need to have a felony report. She suggested that we add to the motion that it is approved based on the proof from the BCI Check. Council Member Leonhardt seconded the motion with the addition of the BCI. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

BUSINESS LICENSE DISCUSSION/APPROVAL

 

Northern Title Company, Paul Davis

 

Mr. Davis explained that they want to go in where the Subway store was. They are required to have a state license, which he does have and will get a copy to us. Parking should not be an issue. Mayor Hansen said that there are a couple of unfinished issues that where stipulated with the conditional use permit, the sidewalk needs to be fixed and the pavement needs to go all the way to the highway, an approach.

 

The sign does not meet the requirements for a monument sign. It is probably okay as far as the square footage. Mayor Hansen explained the monument sign requirements and they are okay to use the sign as it is now but it will count against the square footage for the sign ordinance. Mr. Davis asked if it is okay to rent out some office space. The other businesses that rent the space will need to come in for a business license and also have written permission from them to use that space.

 

Council Member Seiler moved to accept the business license for Northern Title at 115 S. Bear Lake Blvd. Mr. Davis needs to meet the pre-existing conditions of the conditional use permit that was on the property and Mr. Davis needs to present the state license number. Council Member Satterthwaite seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

Bodean’s, Jim McLaughlin

 

Mr. McLaughlin does have has his sales tax number. He will be getting the food handler’s permit before he opens the business.

 

Council Member Gray made the motion to accept the business license for Bodean’s following him obtaining the food handler’s permit and the sales tax number. Council Member Leonhardt seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

Unleashed Performance, Brad Weston

 

Mr. Weston explained that he wants to operate a repair shop for boats, etc. Mayor Hansen said that Mr. Weston is an employee of his and he will lease part of the building from Bear Lake Sails, the repair shop, the retail sales and part of the office. He will do repair of boats, etc., and sale of new watercraft. Mr. Weston gave the Council the letter from the owner of the building stating that it is okay for him to do business there. He is not required to have a special state license.

 

Council Member Gray made the motion to accept the business license for Unleashed Performance. Council Member Satterthwaite seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

Holey Cow, Krista Klein

 

Ms. Klein explained that she is applying for a business license. She does have the food handler’s permit. Ms. Klein said that she is changing the parking and she showed the drawing to the Council. The parking will be on her property and will just be gravel. Council Member Satterthwaite asked about ADA. Ms. Klein explained that she does have a ramp that goes to the back porch. She has resolved the issue with the fence and the neighbors. The neighbor wrote a letter and it was given to the Planning & Zoning Commission. Ms. Klein said that she will work it out with the neighbor on parking next to their property. She said that she is planning on doing some signage. She has the UDOT issue resolved and we should have it on file. She is just going to do one sign up front that will fit with the ordinance.

 

Council Member Leonhardt made the motion to accept the business license for Holey Cow. Council Member Satterthwaite seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

Farmers Market, Paul Lamborn

 

Mr. Lamborn said that he would like to see about the possibility of having a farmers market in Garden City. They want to set up temporary structures, which will not be a permanent addition to the town. Ms. Jeannie Willis is willing to commit her spot in Raspberry Square for a farmers market. It can be anything from people coming to the market and selling their produce to passing out brochures with locations of producers that sell produce from their farm. Mr. Lamborn proposal is to be able to bring some things from California, local growers and also the local raspberry growers. They would like to operate 1-3 days a week depending on the need. They are hoping that it will be a benefit to the community and also draw in some foot traffic to the other businesses in the area. They will need to provide some portable toilets.

 

Council Member Satterthwaite asked if there is a provision in the ordinance that would allow this type of business, short of a transient business. Mr. Lamborn said that there would be no buildings, it would be canopies and tables or just out of the back of a pickup. They would produce some temporary signs.

 

Council Member Satterthwaite said that area is a busy intersection and parking is an issue. Mr. Lamborn said that parking would have to be absorbed by town property. He said that other towns help monetarily with these types of businesses. He would like Garden City to look at helping.

 

Council Member Seiler said that she likes the idea but her concern is that it is in the main intersection in town and parking would be a problem, in that area.

 


The Council looked over the transient business license ordinance. The Council said that they would support the idea but not sure that it is the right place. Council Member Satterthwaite said that they use that area for parking for the two businesses already. Mr. Lamborn said that they would probably put it in the back of that property. Mayor Hansen said that there is already a master plan for that property and they had plenty of parking. He said that he is not too concerned about the parking but he is concerned about the tents and setting up for 3 months. Mayor Hansen said that he feels that the farmers market is a good idea but we should have something that sets them apart from the other transient venders that want to come in to do business. Mr. Lamborn said that as far as the appearance of a farmers market, they will be there early in the morning and then there won’t be any evidence of them being there by early afternoon. The tents will not be set up permanently.

 

Council Member Satterthwaite explained that we are governed by what our ordinance requires for transient vendors. Council Member Leonhardt read through our transient vendor ordinance and said this is where this request would fit. Council Member Leonhardt said that it is a good thing, he is not concerned with the parking but it would need to fit with what is on the ordinance.

 

Mr. Lamborn said that before they go forward they need to know if the town would be behind the project. The allure of a farmers market is that you are buying from the producer. Council Member Leonhardt said as long as they go under the transient vendor ordinance then it would be okay with the Council.

 

Utah Carzz

 

There is no one here for this request.

 

Business Discussion for Commercial Property on 300 West and Logan Road, Dennis Simpson & Bob Anderson

 

Mr. Anderson explained that they would like to invest some more resources into the town and they have some conceptual ideas. They would like to propose a grocery store for that property. They do have 2 or 3 investors who are very interested. They have also been approached for a hardware store, insurance office, retail sales and a banking facility, which could be in conjunction with a grocery store.

 

They feel that piece of property is in the gateway to the town. They want to make it a focal point for people coming in. He also asked if there are other businesses that are needed in the town. They would like to contribute to the community.

 

Mayor Hansen said that is a great parcel in the town and all of the things that they have mentioned would be a great addition. He suggested that Mr. Anderson contact the health center to see what they are already providing. A bank would be extremely welcomed.

 

Council Member Leonhardt said that it is good that they want to come in and invest. We need more services to accommodate the people that are coming in to town.

 


Mayor Hansen explained the architectural standard and the timber and rock. Mr. Jason Linford explained 3rd west and that it is a 100' right of way. Mayor Hansen said that we are trying to create a north south corridor for ATV’s. Council Member Seiler said that it would be nice to bring in a business that could be year round and accommodate our local workers. Mr. Anderson said that they are looking in that direction.

 

Snuggle Bunny Daycare, James Criswell

 

Mr. Criswell explained that they can’t get the state license without the town business license and the business license was stipulated that they need the state license first, so they are caught in between. Mr. Criswell said that they have the FBI background checks and the food handler’s permit. It will be at 199 N. 300 W. They do have the conditional use permit. The fence is already installed. Council Member Leonhardt said that he has been there to inspect it and the State licensing agency has been there to inspect it. They have done a lot of work to get it ready.

 

They are requesting that we issue the business license so they can get the state license.

 

Council Member Gray made the motion to approve the business license and issue the business license for Snuggle Bunny Daycare/preschool. We will need to get a copy of the state license when they get it. Council Member Seiler seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

SWAN SPRING CULINARY WATER PROJECT/TREATMENT PLANT PROJECT,

Jason Linford

 

Mr. Linford explained that Utah Wildlife Resources has the property locked up from the federal side and it is a very lengthy process to obtain the property from them so we need to look at other options. There is a piece of property by the spring that is privately owned that we think will work. Rural Development is okay with that piece of property and will hold the money based on us getting that piece of property. RDA went over the procedure again and we won’t have to do a second Environmental Assessment so they will secure the funds.

 

BUTTERCUP WATER PROJECT, Jason Linford

 

Mr. Linford said that they are working on the drawings for the Buttercup water project and the design is almost done. They will have to do an addition to the existing building.

 

BUTTERCUP SID PROJECT, Jason Linford

 

The Buttercup SID is going forward and the construction should start in a couple of weeks. Mr. Linford asked how we want to handle the inspection. The Council decided that Mr. Andersen will inspect the project as it goes along. Mr. Linford will do periodic inspections and also inspect the paving. Mayor Hansen said that we are looking at about 1-2 inspections and then the asphalt. When the roads are finished they will be town roads and so we want them to be up to our standards. The Council agreed that we should have Mr. Andersen do the initial inspections. They will have a pre-construction meeting to let him know what we expect.

 


EXECUTIVE SESSION

 

Mayor Hansen asked if we could go into executive session.

 

Council Member Gray made the motion to go into executive session at 8:30 p.m. Council Member Seiler seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

Council Member Leonhardt made the motion to go out of executive service at 9:20 p.m. Council Member Gray seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

Council Member Leonhardt made the motion to accept the real estate purchase contract for the property owned by Mr. Jim Petersen that will be used for the treatment plant. Council Member Gray seconded the motion. Council Member Satterthwaite said that we need a public hearing for this issue, to accept the purchase contract. The motion died because we may need a special meeting. We can make the motion during the meeting next week.

 

HONOR LANA HODGES FOR HER SERVICE TO THE TOWN

 

Mayor Hansen presented Lana Hodges with a plaque in honor of her dedicated service to the community.

 

NEWS EXAMINER REPORTER DISCUSSION, Rosa Moosman

 

Ms. Moosman explained that Ms. Oral Lutz has been doing correspondence for the News Examiner for many years but because of her health she will no longer be able to write the articles. The News Examiner is seeking input on who would be a good correspondent to take her place. They would like someone that could cover the Town meetings and talk to the new businesses, etc. It is a benefit to the entire community. They would like to have someone that can e-mail the reports. She said that they would like help from the Council to find someone who would be interested in doing this work. It keeps people informed on what’s going on.

 

PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT DISCUSSION/APPROVAL, Locwood Final Plat Approval for Conceptual Plan, Jay Christopherson

 

Mr. Christopherson said that the Planning & Zoning Commission thought that they had already approved the master plan for Lockwood. The clerks looked back through the minutes and couldn’t find anywhere that it was approved so they are back here now to get approval for the master plan for Lockwood Development. The Council looked over the master plan. The master plan should have everything on it that we have been talking about. They said that this is the new updated plan. Phase I has been approved with some contingencies. This is just the approval for the final master plan, the plan for the whole development. The stipulations on the final plat of phase I will be taken care of on that plat. Council Member Leonhardt explained that this is nothing more than a conceptual final plan, just an overall picture of the entire project. There are no specifics on the master plan other than what has already been done.


 

Council Member Seiler said that there are still a lot of issues with the roads but that is one of the conditions of phase I.

 

Council Member Leonhardt said that there were no issues with the Planning & Zoning Commission for the master plan.

 

Council Member Leonhardt made the motion to approve the final/conceptual plat of the master plan for the Lockwood Development. Council Member Gray seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

SUBDIVISION DISCUSSION/APPROVAL, Bear Lake Commercial Court, Darin Pugmire

 

Mr. Pugmire explained that he is requesting approval for a minor subdivision for Bear Lake Commercial Court. He is bringing in the utilities and the utility easement will also be a delivery easement. He is dedicating 50' to Garden City for 3rd west that is running south. He said that there are some issues for a new road, 2nd west, that is being discussed with the master plan. The 2nd west road would change his overall plan, he doesn’t want to give up another 100' for that road but he would consider giving up a 60' right of way for 2nd west. These lots are listed to sell right now. If we require a right of way for 2nd west he would want the town to do the encroachment onto the road. Mayor Hansen asked if 2nd west would be a necessity. Council Member Satterthwaite said that the fewer roads coming off the busy highway would be better.

 

The front easement is a road that will go all along the front of the lots. He is providing access for each lot.

 

The Planning & Zoning Commission already approved the plat depending on what the Town Council will require for 2nd west and the fire hydrants.

 

Mr. Pugmire plans to leave the ditch along the highway.

 

Mayor Hansen explained that we can’t give a time limit for the encroachment onto 3rd west. In the current General Plan there is no provision for 2nd west. Mr. Pugmire said that if it gets to the point of the Town wanting to do 2nd west, and he owns the property, he would be willing to give the Town the property.

 

Council Member Satterthwaite moved to approve the subdivision, Bear Lake Commercial Court, between 1st west and 3rd west as presented. It will be divided into 4 lots. Council Member Gray seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

PRELIMINARY PLAT REVIEW, DISCUSSION/APPROVAL FOR PHASE 2 OF ELKS RIGDE SUBDIVISION, Frank Smith and Lance Andersen

 

Mr. Smith explained that he received a copy of the concerns for this plat from Mr. Linford. Mr. Linford said that they are just concerns that these concerns are address prior to the final plat.

 

Mr. Linford said that we would hold them to the maximum of 12% for the road grades in this phase. Mr. Anderson said that everything meets that except one little stretch, which will be 12-13% for about 600'. Council Member Leonhardt said that his concern is emergency vehicles. He said that fire code says 10%, and 13% is a huge concern. Mr. Anderson said that it is not feasible to do 10%. He said that there are other accesses that come in. Council Member Leonhardt said that he still has huge concerns with the steeper grade. If we get a structure fire there it is too steep to get a fire truck up there. Mr. Smith said that because of the topography he doesn’t have that ability. There is also an access through Raspberry Patch to get up there. Mr. Linford said that Raspberry Patch is actually steeper than 12%. Mr. Anderson said that they will try to cut it down to 12%. Mr. Linford said that if they can’t get it down to 12% then they may need to apply for a variance for that stretch of road. Council Member Leonhardt said that it is a huge safety issue on his point of view just trying to get an emergency truck up there with that grade. He said that he feels that they need to try to get it down to 12%. Council Member Leonhardt said that he wants to provide the best fire protection that he can for the people that are building there. Mayor Hansen said that they just need to be advised that we expect it to be what we say here tonight. Mayor Hansen said that we have had developers trying to push the limit on the road grades in the past.

 

Mr. Tom Weston said that with the steeper grade of road that we are talking about they won’t be able to have garbage collection. We can’t get a garbage truck up there. Mayor Hansen said that will be an issue that they will have to address with the final plat.

 

The Council and the engineers discussed ways to make the grade lower. Council Member Seiler said that we can’t get close to the ordinance. We need to follow the ordinance. Mr. Linford read the ordinance on street grades. Mr. Anderson said that there is about 500-600 feet where the increased grade will be.

 

Council Member Leonhardt said that he wants to see it at 12% rather than the 13%. Mr. Smith said that he plans to purchase equipment for snow removal. He said that they will work on it to get the best they can.

 

Council Member Gray said that it is somewhat reasonable to get the grade to 12%. He made the motion to approve the plat as long as the elevations on the road meet the current requirements of the ordinance as they sit today. Council Member Seiler seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

3RD WEST DISCUSSION, Richard Bodrero

 

Mr. Bodrero asked what the plans are for 3rd west. Mayor Hansen said that it will not be asphalted right away. Council Member Seiler said that the final survey should be started on Tuesday and then the work should begin shortly after that. We will not have access onto Hwy 89 right away because of the issues with UDOT and the left turn lane. We will put the top base on soon and the paving will depend on the budget. Also, connecting to Hwy 89 will depend on negotiation with UDOT.


 

NEW LIBRARY RENDERINGS, Bill Serviss

 

Mr. Serviss explained that he was asked to create renditions for the new library/Town Hall. He showed the ideas that he has. We will have a open house for people to look over the renditions.

 

ORDINANCE DISCUSSION/APPROVAL

 

Ordinance #06-01, An ordinance to include a definition for Daycare/Preschool

 

This was the first attempt at an ordinance to describe a daycare/preschool. It has been revised and is now ordinance #06-12, which is the ordinance that we will use. Ordinance #06-01 will not be used and therefore is null and void.

 

Ordinance #06-12, An ordinance t include a definition for Daycare/Preschool; Alternative definitions that were proposed in Ordinance #06-01

 

The Council discussed a few minor changes to the ordinance. Council Member Satterthwaite explained that this ordinance needs to go to a public hearing.

 

Council Member Leonhardt made the motion to send ordinance #06-12 to a public hearing. Council Member Seiler seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

We need to re-do the zoning ordinances to state the correct headings for daycare/preschool.

 

The Council agreed to move on to the Building Inspectors Report

 

BUILDING INSPECTORS REPORT

 

Mr. John Abraham explained that we only had 1 permit turned in this week. Things have slowed down a little bit. Mayor Hansen asked that they have the Building Inspector reports ready for this meeting so we know where we are.

 

Mr. Abraham said that he is signing up for schools, to collect the credits, so the state will change his certifications. Mr. Ralph Cannon did pass his mechanical and plumbing tests. We are still getting help from Cache County on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the commercial inspections.

 

ORDINANCE DISCUSSION/APPROVAL

 

Ordinance #06-14, An ordinance to make the changes to the business license application process

 

This ordinance was changed based on the recommendations from last month. This ordinance also needs to go to a public hearing. When we make a reference to noticing requirement we need to be specific as to business days or calendar days.

 


Council Member Leonhardt made the motion to send ordinance #06-14 to a public hearing. Council Member Seiler seconded the motion. All in favor and the motion carried.

 

Ordinance #06-15, An ordinance setting the requirements for collecting a Building Permit Deposit

 

We will have the Town Attorney and also the Building Inspectors look over this ordinance and give their recommendations.

This ordinance will be on the agenda next week during the public hearings for discussion and approval.

 

Ordinance Review and Change Procedure

 

We need to determine how an ordinance is changed. The Council agreed that only land use ordinances need to go to the Planning & Zoning Commission for review, all other ordinances just need to go to the Town Council for approval. The only ordinances that need a public hearing are the land use ordinances and ordinances which stipulate spending money.

 

Discussion Regarding the Sidewalk Ordinance

 

Council Member Seiler said that our sidewalk ordinance needs to be re-done. She is working with the Building Inspector on a draft and she will get a copy of the rough draft to the Planning & Zoning Commission. They want something for new subdivision and who will do maintenance on the sidewalks. We need to get some guidelines and requirements.

 

Council Member Seiler is meeting, on Monday, to get the classifications on the roads and the widths of roads. She said that our descriptions of roads don’t follow anything as far as the state and federal requirements or descriptions. She is trying to make it consistant.

 

RESOLUTION DISCUSSION/APPROVAL

 

Resolution #R06-04, A Resolution establishing the Garden City Building Permit Deposit Amount

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS

 

Board of Adjustments

 

Council Member Leonhardt said that the Board of Adjustment has some concerns regarding set backs for some of the subdivisions. They feel that the Town needs to write letters to the HOA and let them know that they need to follow the Town ordinance and that they also need to change their CC&R’s to conform with the Town ordinances.

Mayor Hansen explained that Mr.Tom Hutson did resign from the Board of Adjustments. Mayor Hansen has not talked to anyone to replace him.

Pre-payment for Water Connections

The Council also discussed the pre-payments that we have already received. They Council said that we need to get an opinion from the attorney on whether to start charging the old contracts or not.

 

We will change the application to start charging the assessment as soon as they sign the contract.
