Dan Wheatley, Amy Baird and Greg Nuzman will serve on the new TRSSD Administrative Control Board.
Draper City Council formally appointed five individuals to the newly created Traverse Ridge Special Service District Administrative Control Board in December. Those appointed have staggered terms, some with two years and others with four.
City Manager David Dobbins said staggered terms are required by state law. Draper’s city council had previously served as the TRSSD’s board.
“I personally am grateful for each one being willing to put their good names forward, as a way for residents who pay that extra money to have a say in how it’s spent,” Mayor Troy Walker said to those who were appointed to represent residents of the TRSSD.
The new board will work with district residents to determine a budget and a tax rate that they want to adopt going forward.
After the district’s budget and the tax rate were defeated by a referendum in the Nov 2014 election, the city established an inter-local agreement between the city and the TRSSD board to handle snow removal for this year. That money is coming from a fund balance that had been earmarked for the purpose of repairing Deer Ridge Drive. In future years, the new board can choose to contract with the city or another service for snow removal.
Amy Baird, Nathan Lunstad and Dan Wheatley were appointed to four-year terms while Blaine Carlton and Greg Nuzman will serve two-year terms on the new board.
