5. Mr. Webb explained that he was asked to follow up on potential liability at the retention pond near the Visitor Center. He contacted the insurance provider and they explained that there are many such ponds throughout the state and they do not recommend fencing them since there is very limited if any liability. They will be in Blanding doing a risk assessment, and they will take a closer look and make further recommendations if necessary.


6. Councilmember Lyman began a discussion about a third party sewer connection. He explained that he wanted to make sure there were no other alternatives discovered since the last meeting. Mr. Ekker explained that it is against state law to connect through the sewer lateral of another property. He also commented that a possible solution to the problem would be to extend a sewer main through property owned by Britt Barton, which would allow them to connect and not have to cut the road.


7. Mr. Webb presented modified plans for the outdoor pool at the new Wellness Center. He explained that the changes will allow the pool to be more multi-functional and should not affect the costs substantially. Councilmember Johnson asked about the capacity of the pool. Mr. Webb explained that the amount of capacity will be substantially increased from the current pool. The surface area is nearly doubled, but the pool goes to zero depth so the amount of water in the pool is much less than double. Advice and consent was given to proceed.


8. Mr. Webb gave the Council an update on projects currently in process. Each project was discussed including Fourth Reservoir transmission Line, Water treatment Plant, Deep Well Integration, Water Master Plan, 625 South Sewer Project, Road Projects, Storm Water Project, and Wellness Center. Mr. Webb explained that the Council is seeking to fund a project that will add distribution lines on 300 West and also fix Starvation Reservoir. The City did not qualify for 100% grant for the project but instead was offered a 45% grant 55% loan funding mix. Mr. Webb explained that if the city was to borrow for the project it would have to raise water rates by $1 per month to cover the additional debt. Mr. Ekker explained that the distribution lines on 300 West are a major need and will need to be completed before road projects can be done in the area. The Council decided to not accept loan funding, but instead seek other funding sources and partners.


9. Mr. Webb informed the Council that the primary election for the 4 year Council seat will be held on September 15th and a sample ballot will be available soon.


10. Mayor Turk explained that he had a meeting with Harold Lyman and Gary Shumway to discuss ways to enhance the understanding of the community in regards to the name Blanding and where it may have come from. He informed the Council that a website has been launched explaining the genealogy of the Blanding name. A link to the site can be found on the Blanding City website.


11. Open Forum – Merle McDonald asked about a possible name change for Blanding. Mayor Turk explained that he would like to see people happier and prouder of the name Blanding.


John Forrester addressed Council and commented that last Sunday night during the torrential rainstorm water was coming out of the storm drain and onto his property. He commented that it washed out part of his property located at 100 E Pioneer Road.
