Highland City Council Agenda Preview for Aug 18, 2020

This should be a relative short meeting. We will be covering a few items I believe are particularly important:

  1. Envision Utah will review a report based on an extensive survey they conducted for all Utah County that deal with the type of growth and locations residents preferred. If you are interested in what type of growth we can expect over the next 20 to 30 years in the county and where it will be located this will be a good presentation to watch.
  2. The council will discuss a resolution to indicate support for the funding and legal obligations associated with a $2M grant to help cover the cost of adding water meters to existing pressurized irrigation connections.
  3. An addition to our municipal code related to parking vehicles for sale on public streets. We've a had a number of complaints related to this and police will now have the authority to address it.

An abbreviated agenda for the meeting is shown below along with my video preview. This meeting will be held at city hall but there will be limited space because of distancing requirements. We will also stream it on our YouTube channel (click here to watch). 

Note, individuals, especially those in a high-risk category, are strongly encouraged to participate in the meeting virtually!
