MEETING MINUTES APPROVAL Mr. Richards made a motion approving the meeting minutes from February 26th 2019 board meeting minutes as written. Ms. McGuinness seconded the motion and it was unanimously carried.


2019 Local District Election Agreement- Mr. Hanson And Ms. Alderin attended the 2019 Local District Election meeting with the County Clerk election division and other local districts to discuss the 2019 general election and Interlocal Cooperation Agreement. Salt Lake County Service Area #3 has one 4-year term up for election. Estimated cost (not to exceed) $600.00.

Mr. Prosek seconded and it was unanimously carried. Copies of all election paper work are attached to the minutes.



SYSTEMS OPERATIONS AND DEVELOPMENT- Mr. Hanson starts with welcoming back System Manager Steve Mcintosh to work on a light duty basis after a incident while working for the Town of Alta. Mr. Mcintosh states he is doing well and Doctors think approximately 6 weeks light duty.








Creekside Lodge- Mr. Hanson meet with Salt Lake Public utilities and Snowbird Dave Fields and Nima Mahak Thursday March 14th to discuss the water service contract and water overages at Creekside Day Lodge. Salt Lake County Service Area #3 and Snowbird found a couple of sources that could lead the overages and Snowbird has repaired the issues, which has slowed the problem but not completely repaired. Salt Lake Public Utilities is going to consult with their legal consul to consider using the annual number vs the monthly number to help with winter overages (Creekside use minimal amounts in summer months). Resident Mr. Haik stated to look into Snowbird water contract for transcript of change application 1992. Ms. Alderin will look for any documentation regarding the 1992 change application.


New Co-gen plant- Mr. Hanson briefly discussed that he will be meeting with engineers Thursday March 21st to discuss Co-gen construction and Snowbirds 1-million-gallon non-consumptive daily water allotment. 


Surface water reservoir – Mr. Hanson has started discussion with Salt Lake City of building a surface water reservoir. Salt Lake county did not seem opposed to the idea. A Surface water reservoir would help keep water storage in the tunnel. Tunnel water levels have not been this low since 1997. Though Mr. Hanson did state that with 2018-19 snow totals will get the tunnel back to full, a reservoir would help maintain that level.


Sugarplum Unit M improvements- Unit M would like to add a hot tub to their unit. Service Area #3 has no issues with this. Plans are in accordance with fire hydrant easements.


Snowbird Snowmaking Upgrades- Mr. Hanson discussed the purposed new snowmaking supply lines. Discussed adding a 14” line to the 18” so it can be split into two 12” water lines to better supply Peruvian Gulch and Gad Valley snowmaking.


3/15/19 Sugarplum village- Mr. Hanson informed the board members of a second fire that happened March 15th 2019 in the lower village of Sugarplum Unit N. Fire was in the chimney of Unit N which is a non-gas unit. Very little water was used to put out the fire.
