West Bountiful

During its Aug. 1 meeting, the City Council:

- Discussed the status of the new City Hall. Council members announced that plans to tear down the old building and put a new one in its place will be delayed. Problems include the current water well, which may not have enough water needed for the new building, and the possibility of relocating City Hall on a new section of the land - leaving room for the city shops in the same area.

Davis Energy Recovery

In its Wednesday meeting, the District board:

- Received an operations report for July. Revenues are expected to exceed $1 million, with 84 percent burn plant operating time and 16,681 tons of garbage received.

- Reported the August burn plant shutdown this year will include 26 special maintenance and repair projects at a cost of $339,000.

- Discussed an $82-per-ton tipping fee for commercial haulers to replace the current $62-per-ton fee. The new $10 household fee means residents are paying more than their share of waste disposal costs. Commercial fees need to be raised. The board will discuss the commercial fee more at its Sept. 6 meeting.
