A. Information Needed by Council Staff

1.    Two Special Assessment Areas (SAA) are due for an upcoming Board of Equalization Review – as Council staff mentioned to you in a previous announcement, a recent change in State law requires a City Council Member participant on the Board of Equalization Review.   The two SAAs are:


o     900 South 900 East (Districts 4 and 5); and

o     Fenway Avenue (635 S between 1200-1240 East Streets) and Strongs Court (845 East between 340-400 South Streets -- District 4)



The Administration proposes to schedule the Board of Equalization Review for both SAAs at the same time – meeting three consecutive days on:


o     Tuesday, August 28, 2007 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

o     Wednesday, August 29, 2007 from 5 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

o     Thursday, August 30, 2007 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


All three meetings will be held at the first floor conference room at 349 South 200 East.  Would Council like to designate one Council Member to attend all three meetings or would you like to designate 1-3 Council Members to each take a day? 


Council Members Christensen, Love and Jergensen will attend meetings depending on their schedules.  Quinn will send a reminder.
