Det. Norgaard: In the last month there were 17 organized burglaries, after a burglary ring was caught there was only 2.  28 vehicle break ins which is a lot.  Please take your valuables out of the car.  26 traffic accidents.  Please be safe.  Caller response time is improving but still needs work.   It is the time of the year when stolen vehicles increase, please don’t leave your car unattended.

Benny Keele is going to send out ballots for our election.  Cut off is 8 pm

Rep. King-talked about the independent redistricting commission.  The legislature did not approve any of the maps that the commission approved.  4 maps were drawn, 1 for the state house, 1 for the state senate, 1 for the state school board and 1 congressional map (the most hotly contested)   We will be looking at the future of the Great Salt Lake.

Leah Jaramillo and Lynn Jacobs Highland Drive Update

In the final planning stages, replacing the aging infrastructure and making a more comfortable ride for all users. Looking at adding a wider multi use path along the west side from 2100 South to Ramona.  Want to slow traffic. Hosting a broader meeting including business owners and residents in early December.  

Update on the sewer line from McClelland to Yuma on 2100 South, also redoing the water line from 1300 East to Yuma.  Pipes are as old as 80-100 years old.  It is planned for next summer.  Looking at two different styles depending on where the work is done on 2100 South.  Likely starting in April or May and running through the end of the year.  Full construction will be 2025 of 2100 South.  

S-Line Extension Update: Looking at two options 1) up Simpson and stopping at the old DI building 2) would be crossing Highland Drive up into the old Shopko Block.

Ben Kolander-Director of Economic Development of SLC

Update on Special Assessment Area for Economic Promotion.  SAA-Special Assessment Area, used as a tax rate increase from property owners with the revenue received from that are used for economic promotion.  Department has met with city council and the mayor’s office about a budget request to do some initial studying of the area.  It is the first step in the process.  There is an actual work session item which is budget item number 4 at the November 9th meeting. As of now this is a suggested item.  This will take some time for the SAA to go through about a year or a bit longer. Part of the SAA is maintenance in the area so we have Lorna Hoyt-Director of Public Services here to give an update on Maintenance in Sugar House. Throughout the city we do between the curbs maintenance.  We do Enhanced maintenance in the central business district downtown and some enhanced maintenance in Sugar House.  We provide garbage cans, maintain the Splash Pad on monument plaza, maintain monument plaza, extra snow plowing, things we don’t do throughout the city just in the enhanced maintenance areas.  Looking for a spot to keep maintenance equipment in Sugar House.  

Allison Adams and Courtney Hamer-East/West Water Line Update

Putting in a new 48 inch water line.   Starts in Millcreek up by REI and runs through Millcreek into SLC.  Will end at 1700 South and about 300 East.  We will have another reliable source for water.  We are here to talk about Phase 2. We have completed the 900 East and Ashton Ave. portion and to Warnock.  We are resuming the Forest Dale section which will run from November 2021 to May 2022.  Construction will take place on the Northern part of the golf course.
