- Canceled the June 25 City Council meeting and rescheduled it for June 18, 6 p.m.

In its May 8 meeting, the City Council:

- Suspended the beer license of Maverik Country Store, 150 S. 200 West, for 30 days for selling beer to minors. Undercover police officers did compliance checks in September, December and March, all of which the store failed.

- As the Redevelopment Agency, approved an improvement note for a new two-story office building at the Gateway Park, about 550 West and 500 South. The note constitutes an agreement with the developers to pay them $200,000 in tax increments. The building will likely be completed within the year. The property is actually in Woods Cross, but Bountiful agreed to do the redevelopment in a 1984 agreement.

North Salt Lake

In its May 7 meeting, the City Council:

- Discussed how to decrease speeding along 30-mph Marialana Way, including possible speed bumps, stop signs or greater enforcement of the speed limit. The council did not make a final decision.

Woods Cross

In its May 7 meeting, the City Council:

- Declined to provide culinary water to a proposed residence at approximately 1670 S. 1800 West, just outside city boundaries. The master plan has the area mapped for light industrial, and City Administrator Gary Uresk said providing water hook-ups for residential would send the wrong message to property owners in the area.

West Bountiful

In its May 7 meeting, the City Council:

- Voted to reconstruct 1100 West at a 40-foot width, instead of the 32-foot width previously contemplated. The actual traffic lanes will be the same - two 12-foot lanes - but engineers had recommended an eight-foot buffer on the west side as well as the east. Some citizens expressed opposition to the widening, fearing it was simply a prelude to more traffic lanes, but council members said that was not the reason.

- Voted to delay installation of numerous new stop signs along 1100 West and 800 West until the 1100 West reconstruction is finished. That also met with some opposition from residents who had advocated immediate installation of the stop signs.


In its May 7 meeting, the City Council:

- Amended the city codes on manufactured homes to conform with the new state law, allowing them in all residential zones.

- Voted to allow the city to take back ownership of 2.4 acres from Dick Bowman, near his new Thrift-way store, to provide the funds to pay for some $85,000 in shared costs for the construction of 300 North Street. Bowman argued that hidden costs added more than $51,000 onto the construction of the new street adjacent to his new store.

- Approved spending $27,000 to design the last section of 900 West Street in the Kaysville Business Park.

- Approved the sale of 16 acres in the business park for $492,585 to Jensen RV for the company's new site.

- Appointed Darrell Horne as a new member of the planning commission to replace Ernie Davenport.

Fruit Heights

In its May 7 meeting, the City Council:

- Voted to participate with Brian Kiesel and Travis Campbell in an Eagle Scout project to put covers on the two baseball dugouts in Nichols Park. The city will spend up to $600 on the project because the city engineer's recommendations doubled the cost of the Scouts' proposed project.

- Set a budget work meeting for Tuesday, May 28, 7 p.m.
