2. Legislative Action Item:  (Please see attached.)  Council Member Dave Buhler would like to request that the Administration re-evaluate sections of the zoning ordinance relating to fences in front yard areas in residential zoning districts.  Would the Council support this request or would Council Members prefer to discuss this request further during a work session briefing?  Councilmember Christensen said a Legislative Intent would be placed on the next agenda.


3. Property Conveyance:  Public Utilities has a mosquito abatement area which is to be leased to the Wingate Village Town Homes, 1768 W 400 North.

5. Discussion was held on whether or not to hire outside counsel to review Main Street issues.   Councilmember Christensen asked Council Member to decide if they wanted to hire outside counsel and let Ms. Gust-Jenson know.  He asked Council Members to include any comments or suggestions regarding scope of review.   Ed Rutan said if the scope of review was limited to just property issues he felt it was not worth doing.  He said review was needed on First Amendment issues.
