Mayor Smith reported that a St. George resident has inquired about Silver Lake donating the holiday banners that are no longer used to the City of St. George. After discussion, council agreed to donate these flags and asked Public Works Superintendent Taylor to remove the banner pole brackets when he is taking down the decorations for this year.

Mayor Smith reported that a new fine schedule will go into effect on January 1, 2016.

Mayor Smith reminded council that the next meeting is scheduled for January 4, 2016 at 5:30 P.M. The following meeting will be held on January 20, 2016 at 5:30 P.M.

Mr. Eldon Roberson and Angela Sharp with Bartlett & West were present to discuss the development of six (6) lots in Block C of Lakeland Subdivision No. 1. They would like a plat footnote removed from this plat. This footnote requires Rice Road to be fully improved from Highway 24 north to the boundary of the subdivision prior to building permits being issued for these lots. They presented several alternative options, although, council requested that additional issues be addressed prior to proceeding further. These issues relate to their proposal to have gravel accesses and council wants more information on their solution for drainage. In addition, council would like to address this matter again when full council is present.

With no further business to come before council, Councilman Robinson moved to adjourn the meeting at 6:10 P.M.  Motion was seconded by Councilman Ross and approved.

City Clerk
