KAYSVILLE CITY PUBLIC HEARING
OCTOBER 4, 2005
Minutes of a Public Hearing held October 4, 2005 at 6:45 p.m. in Room A of the Kaysville City Municipal Center to consider the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities Program for 2006.
Members present: Mayor Brian Cook, Council Members Neka Roundy, Christopher Snell, Casey Hill and John McCleary.
Members excused: Gil Miller
Others present: City Manager John Thacker, Recorder Linda Ross, Ruth Malan-Standard Examiner, Carrieann Borges-Clipper, LaNiece Dustman-Wasatch Front Regional Council and R. E. Stephens.
Mr. Thacker explained that this hearing is being held to consider potential projects for which funding may be applied under the 2006 Community Development Block Grant Small Cities Program. The grant money must be spent on projects benefitting primarily low and moderate income persons. The Wasatch Front Regional Council, in which Kaysville City is a member, is expecting to receive approximately $2 million dollars in this program year, approximately $800,000 through the Davis County COG. All eligible activities that can be accomplished under this program are identified in the application guide. Anyone can review this guide. Some of the eligible activities are: construction of public works and facilities, acquisition of real property, provision of public services, loan programs and housing rehabilitation. In the past, Kaysville City has received grants for housing rehabilitation, water system upgrades, storm drainage improvements, and street improvements benefitting low and moderate income persons. The City's Capital Investment Plan is part of a regional consolidated plan and shows which projects the City has identified as being needed in the community. Anyone with questions, comments or suggestions are invited to present them.
Ms. LaNiece Dustman thanked the Council for their past sponsorship. Wasatch Front Regional Council provides planning, administration and technical assistance to each entity wishing to apply for CDBG program funding. Wasatch Front makes up the Davis, Weber, Morgan and Tooele Counties. She requested that Kaysville sponsor them again this year.
There was no public comment.
The hearing adjourned at 6:50 p.m.
