DELEGATIONS:
	Cullen Irvine, Regional Business Manager at Rocky Mountain Power Company came before the council explaining the meaning behind the letters sent to some city residents. 
	Several city residents received letters requesting that Rocky Mountain Power be allowed on private property to conduct surreys.  Seven of the residents were in attendance and were able to voice their opinions on the issue.   Irvine said the letters sent to Mona residence and Juab County requesting Rocky Mountain Power be allowed on private property to conduct survey only mean that surveyors would take photos, they are allowed to take photos on private property to determine if the lines into the Clover Creek substation will be a visual problem. 
	Irvine told the council and those present, 'First of all, I would like to apologize, we should have had this meeting before the letters went out.'
	He said the letters should only be going to residents who own property within a three-mile radius of Clover Creek. 
	Mayor Mills had concerns about bringing the transmission line to the Clover line in Juab County.  The transmission line will begin near Medicine Bow, Carbon County Wyoming, at the Aeolus substations and extend south and west of the Clover Creek Substation near Mona. 
	The project is to meet load growth, provide increased reliability and improve operational flexibility in conjunction with future generations including renewable energy.
	

MONA CITY COUNCIL MEETING SEPTEMBER 10, 2019

	Linda Park said their letter told them Rocky Mountain Power would be digging on her property and she did not want that to happen.   Irving said he would replace that letter with one that is correct.  
	The load center is in Salt Lake but the power will be available for Utah users as well.  Mayor Mills questions why the station wasn't built in the SLC area if that is the case. 
	Irvine said he would hope that residents would give the power company until the end of December to get the work done. 
	 Resident Brady Ellis came before the council a second time to get an occupancy permit, with a bond of $20,000.00 to back his unfinished outside work so that he and his family could move into their home. He told the council, 'We would like to close at the end of October; there are still a couple of things we need to get done.'  He added their lenders do not want them to extend the loan.  
	Councilmember Micheal Stringer had concerns allowing the family to move into a home that was not completed, the work may not get done in a timely manner or at all and permitting an occupancy permit may open up a can of worms for other homeowners expecting the same treatment.  
	Councilmember Randy Christensen said the Ellis's will put up bond money, if the work is not finished the city can take that money and finish it. 
	Mayor Mills said he will talk with Verl Wilkey, Mona City's building inspector and see what he will approve and perhaps the Ellis will be able to obtain a building permit and move in.   Mills also stated the Ellis's would need to put up 125% of the cost of finishing the work and that might be more than the $20,000.00 the Ellis's agreed to bond. 
	There were concerns from the council if they approved Ellis's occupancy permit without his house being finished, it could set a precedent for other homeowners to follow suit, and the council does not want that to happen.  

SECRETARY/TREASURER/ RECORDER REPORT: 
	Mayor William M. Mills asked the council's approval to sign the Wilkerson Agreement per Casey Wright who was the city's acting attorney at the time.  Mayor Mills told the council and those present the Wilkerson Agreement meets their requirements, the location is south of 300E.  
	Councilmember Micheal Stringer moved to make a motion to allow Mayor William M. Mills to sign the Wilkerson Agreement, with a second by Councilmember Randy Christensen.  The vote was unanimous, motion carried. (6th Motion). 
	City Recorder Lyla Spencer presented the petition/application for the Barnes Bullet Annexation to the council for approval. 
	With out further discussion Councilmember Katrina Long moved to make a motion to approve the petition/application for the Barnes Bullet Annexation, with a second by Councilmember Jay Mecham.  Vote Unanimous, motion carried. (7th Motion)
