Mayor Nelson welcomed everyone to the emergency meeting and explained Elwood Town needed to make a decision as to if we are going to move forward with FEMA funding for the river road project.
Item#1     Discuss FEMA project on River Road-Mayor Nelson stated that the land is moving along the road on River Road and runs along to Hansen Park. The land moved when we had the flood this spring. The land continues to move due to the drain water runoff.

 

                 Steve Woerner stated that the guy from the state of Utah stated that to fix it right, is to build pillars and build a rock wall to fix it right it would be cheaper to buy the 4 homes along River Road.

 

                 Mayor Nelson stated that the road could stay like this for 110 years or 5 years who knows, our other options are to close the road or move the road over 20 feet. Steve stated that he don’t see a reason to do anything with the road Mayor Nelson agrees.

 

               Mayor Nelson has been in contact with the State of Utah and FEMA regarding the project and we have meet with them several times and the last time they wanted us to get a geological study done Gina called Chris White to have the study done, one conversation with the state of Utah stated they would pay for the study and the next conversation with FEMA stated they will not pay for it unless the road was deemed an emergency threat. The State and FEMA is hard to work with and it seems no one talks to each other. The last email we received from FEMA stated that if the road was deemed an emergency threat they would do the lowest cost fix and that is to move the road 20 feet and that would only fix the problem for a short time.

 

                     Mayor Nelson ask the town council to make a decision if the town should go forward with FEMA and the State for help with funding the project or to withdrawal our request for funding.

 

Councilmember Nelson made a motion to withdrawal our request for funding. Councilmember Yates seconded the motion. Councilmember Laurie Nielsen abstained Mayor Nelson voted to withdrawal from FEMA and the state of Utah.
