At the beginning of the meeting, Gregg Martinez with Page Regional Domestic Violence Services presented council with a $2,100 check, the results of fundraising efforts in support of the city pool.

Mayor Diak said that the pool was one the best programs the city has and that the city plans on continuing the program next year.

The Page Police Department got approval from council to accept a Governor’s Office of Highway Safety Grant.

The grant will provide the police department with the funds to purchase a Sokkia Data Collector, a tool used to assist in the investigation of serious accidents, fatalities and major crime scenes.

The device will allow the police department to quickly and accurately map all of the intersections within the city. This will cut down on the amount of time officers need to spend blocking an intersection after an accident while also getting more accurate measurements. Accuracy is key when investigating a crime or accident scene and this technology could lead to a higher conviction rate, especially in cases involving DUI collisions.

The Sokkia Data Collector is an $8,185 piece of equipment and the cost is fully covered by the grant.

Council also approved the Lake Powell Concert Association’s request for funding, providing the association with $4,000. The funding will help cover the Concert Associations marketing costs and pay artist fees.

Finally, council approved a plan to increase signage on the Rim View Trail.

The National Park Service will provide the sign to the city at a minimal cost and use NPS criteria when creating the signs.

The reason for using NPS criteria in the signs is to create continuity in the hope of eventually connecting the Rim View Trail to Horseshoe Bend.

Council also mentioned that the Planning and Zoning Commission has two open seats. Any interested citizens are encouraged to pick up an application from the City Clerk.

The next City Council meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 18th.
