Pledge of Allegiance by those present

Councilmember Kim Yates gave the opening prayer

Councilmember Jon Howard was absent

 

Minutes for the April 10th town council meeting were presented for approval.

 

            Councilmember Pace made a motion to approve the minutes for April 10, 2018

            Councilmember Yates seconded the motion. The voting was unanimous in favor

             of the motion.

 

Item#1     Micha Capener was present to discuss the Elwood Acres subdivision. He gave the

                 Engineer’s report and they have determined that they cannot afford the $273,000.00

               required to build the road necessary for all 10 lots. He proposed that they forgo two

 

Elwood Town Council                                           -2-                                           May 8, 2018

 

                 of the lots and the road, and plan on building on just 8 of the lots which would

                 necessitate another engineer’s report which he will secure.

 

                 Councilmember Yates made the suggestion that perhaps they should wait to make

                 a decision on the matter until a new plat map had been drawn up. Steve Woerner

                 expressed the opinion that it could be kept the same but there would be no approval

                 given for building permits for the other 2 lots.

 

                 It was determined that the water drainage issues would need to be resolved. The

                 town requires ½ share of water for each lot and there is no secondary water system

                 in place at this time. Chris White from Hansen Engineering wants the approval of the

                 Elwood Drainage District and the ditch owners.

              

                 Kathryn Bodrero added some comments regarding the subject.

 

                 Mayor Nelson made the point that an upgraded escrow report would be necessary

                before building permits would be issued. When asked by the Mayor about financial

                 arrangements, Mr. Capener said it was coming from private investors.

 

               After the discussion, Councilmember Yates was satisfied with the 8 lot proposal and

                 made the following motion: To approve Elwood Acres 10 lot subdivision excluding

                 lots #7 and 4 and providing that we get the escrow amount approved by Chris White

                 and providing the ditch company and the Elwood Drainage District both approve.

 

                 The motion was seconded by Councilmember Pace and approved by all members of

                 of the Council.

 

Item #2     Cynthia Nelson-Proclamation Regarding Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month.    

                 Cynthia Nelson was not present but Mayor Nelson made note of it.

 

Item #3     4th of July Celebration Survey

                 Councilmember Pace made a report to the Council on the Elwood 4th of July Survey.

                 In answer to a question by Councilmember Yates as to how it was distributed, he

                 mentioned them and stated that the response was good with suggestions of things

                 that could be eliminated from past years and new things that could be added, some

                 of which were a Dutch Oven cook off, horse shoe toss, bean bag toss and Bingo.

                 There was some interest in extending the activities later into the day.

 

                 Councilmember Pace also reported that he would be chair the event and that

                 volunteers were already in place. Councilmember Yates made the comment that in

                 the past the Town Council members had been in charge of the cleanup after

                 breakfast.

 

Elwood Town Council                                             -3-                                                    May 8, 2018

 

Item #4     Budget. Steve Woerner reported that the cost of a new mower would be $9400.00.

                 He also reported that he was still working on the tractor trade issue. The road bids

                 are still undecided. Councilmember Yates reported that the cost of sewer cleaning

                 is 45 cents per foot.

 

Item #5   Town Hall Addition

                 The topic of the addition to the Town Hall was discussed. It will be a 25x30 addition.

                 There was some discussion regarding the location of the rooms in the addition

                 initiated by Councilmember Pace. The added space will be 100-150 square feet.

 

                 The cost of the project was also discussed. According to Henry Thompson, a local

                 builder, the average cost is about $140.00 per square foot which would add up to

                 about $100,000.00. In answer to a question by Mayor Nelson about the cost to draw

                 up plans for the project, Councilmember Yates told him what the estimate would be.

               He also told the Mayor that he would update the plans and send them to Gina.

 

                 Several building options were discussed. Bids for the project would be let out. Steve

                 Woerner suggested that the town could be their own contractor and sub out the

                 work.

 

At this point in the meeting, Mayor Nelson asked Planning Commission member, Kathryn Bodrero if the subject of secondary water had been discussed with the Commission and asked her to bring it up them and Gil Miller, the Town Planner.

 

This led into further discussion about the Highland Ditch project and how it might affect a

secondary water project for the town. The need for a secondary water plan for the town and various routes were discussed including 4800 going south or the one by the Rue Rasmussen property. The Mayor expressed a desire to move on it right away and hopes to collect funds for this purpose.

 

Other- not on agenda – Chase Burbidge Eagle Project – Elwood Town clean up

                 Chase Burbidge and his parents Eric and Tricia were present and he made a report

                 on his Eagle Project which was a town clean up. He said that there was a large

                 turnout of volunteers to help, including all members of the Elwood Youth Council.

                 23 large orange bags were collected which added up to 152 hours of donated labor.

                 Chase presented Mayor Nelson with a board containing a collage of pictures about

                 the project.

 

Item #6   Youth Council Report. No one from the council was in attendance but Mayor Nelson          

                 was especially pleased to hear that all members of the Youth Council had showed up

                 to help with the Chase Burbidge Eagle Project.

               Elwood Town Council                                     -4-                                                    May 8, 2018

 

Item #7   Planning Commission Report

                 Kathryn Bodrero was present representing the Commission. She reported that they

                 are presently working on Definitions and that will be followed by Subdivisions, Zoning

                 and Home Business License Ordinances. There was some discussion on the location

                 of a building for affordable housing. The concern was the impact of traffic on the

                 areas under consideration.

 

                 Jeff Starnes has been released from the Elwood Town Planning Commission and has

                 been replaced by Dakota Nelson. The Planning Commission is in need of more

                 members.

 

                 Mayor Nelson reported that he recently had a conversation with Dave Bingham

                 regarding the duties of the members of the Commission. Kathryn Bodrero made the

                 point that because of the lack of people everyone is just pitching in to get the work

                 done for whatever is needed.

 

                 It was noted that Kathryn Bodrero needs an updated copy of the Ordinance Book.

                 The Council also discussed the desperate need for a Planning Commission secretary.

                 It is a paid position and the person does not need to be a citizen of Elwood.

 

Item #8   Sargent Archuleta – Sheriff’s Department report – Sargent Archuleta not present

 

Item #9   Curtis Crouch – Animal Control

                 Curtis Crouch was not present but several recent dog issues were discussed and it

                 was noted that the dog clinic held on April 28th was a success.

 

Water      Steve Woerner reported that the water leak at the cemetery has been fixed but the

                 one on the cemetery road has not been repaired yet.

 

Sewer       The sewer problem on 4400 West has been cleaned out.

 

Parks        Steve said all is well there. Hansen Park is in good shape from the floods last year.

                 The park will be watered this week.

 

Councilmember Yates made a report on his attendance at the meeting of the League of Cities

and Towns. He reported while in attendance he had a discussion about high speed internet service with a man representing Utopia who told him that they would do a feasibility study for the town. It was decided that Councilmember Yates would contact him and invite him to attend the Town Council meeting in June.
