Last night I found out that two people are no longer candidates for Woods Cross City Council. Cathy Larrabee dropped out of the race and Troy Gottfredson was not a registered voter. I think we should charge some sort of filing fee. This would help eliminate those who are not truly serious about running a campaign. I think it would require a lot more thought for someone if they had to pay 25 dollars or so.
The three biggest items from City Council meeting last night were:
1. Public Hearing to consider Rezoning of almost 6 acres from I1 - light industrial to R-1-8 single - family residential. The council voted 5 - 0 to rezone this property which is located at about 2300 South 1500 West.
2. Public Hearing to gather input regarding a proposed amdendment to the Zoning Ordinance. The council voted 5 - 0 to adopt the ordinance which changes the minimum distance between a house and an accessory building from 6 feet to 3 feet. This brings our ordinance in-line with the International Building Code.
3. Consideration to amend the Woods Cross City Code of Ordinances to address unauthorized parking of vehicles on private property. The council voted 5 - 0 to adopt this change which will allow a property owner to have a vehicle towed from their property if it is parked there without permission. This change means the police department will not be involved. The property owner will call the towing company directly.
That's all for today.
