A.    Information Needed by Council Staff

1.    The Board of Equalization Hearings for Sidewalk Replacement Special Assessment Area (SAA) 2007/08, Job No. 102145, Lyman Court Special Assessment Area (SAA), Job No. 102146 (Council Districts 5 and 6), and California Avenue Reconstruction (4800 W to 5600 W) S.A.A.; Job No. 103006 (Council District Two) have been combined for the Board of Equalization hearing to take place on the following three nights at 349 S 200 E, First Floor Conference Room:

2)    Wednesday, April 15, 2009 5:00 PM-6:00 PM

3)    Thursday, April 16, 2009 6:00 PM-7:00 PM

Could the Council Members please let Council staff know who can cover the Board of Equalization hearings; a different Council Member for each night is acceptable. Thank you.  Councilmember Garrott volunteered for Wednesday, April 15th; Councilmember Simonsen tentatively volunteered for Tuesday, April 14th; and Councilmember Garrott volunteered for Thursday, April 16th. 

Ms. Gust-Jenson said she wanted to check the schedule for the month of January with the Council.  She said the Council had received an e-mail and asked about various meeting times.  She said January 20th had been cancelled per the Councils’ previous instructions and they were checking to see if they could add a meeting on the 22nd that would be informal.  She said it would be scheduled because the PRATT people have their consultant in town for the DRAW at Sugar House.  She said most Council Members would be able to attend as long as it only lasts an hour but at least one Councilmember was not able to attend and so they would be arranging some other time to do that.  She said there was a Council Meeting on January 27th that was scheduled to cover the January 20th meeting and then the Council retreat was scheduled for January 29th.  The time had not been discussed with the Council but it was suggested that it start at noon so it did not go late into the evening.  She asked if that was going to work for Council Members.   Councilmember Garrott said he would have to reschedule a class on the 29th and Councilmember Simonsen said he could not be there on the 29th and possibly not on the 27th either.  Councilmember Christensen said if Councilmember Simonsen could not be at the retreat then a different day would be scheduled.  A suggestion was made to hold the retreat on February 24th.  Council Members were in favor of February 24th for the retreat.
