There are several projects that council members would like to see take place in the next year or two.

Justin Seely, council member, said that he had been watching the news and saw a report on some grant opportunities for after school programs.

“I will explore what potential there is for applying for those types of grants,” he said. “I think that would be helpful to the youth of our city.”

Nathan Memmott, council member, said that he had visited with an individual who had an ATV club several years ago.

“The ATV club had explored the idea of an ATV trail system,” said Memmott. “The club ran into easement problems with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”

Memmott said that he thought that more work could be done to resurrect the issue.

Kent Jones, council member, reported that he talked with Juab County Commissioner Richard Hansen about the detention dams being used as a motorcycling area and Commissioner Hansen said that the federal government had shut it down.

Jones said he would still like to continue to study the issue.

Larry Ostler, council member, reported that the Juab County Sheriff’s office is going to crack down on illegal use of motorcycles and ATVs.

Ostler suggested that the city put into policy the procedures of refunding building permits when necessary.

There is no clear-cut policy in case someone purchase a building permit and then, for one reason or another, does not begin the project.

“There should be a policy for them to get their money back,” he said.
