The Payson Town Council hasn’t had much on the docket recently with most meetings lasting less than an hour. Even at that, staff reports and proclamations taking up most of that time.
Last week’s meeting followed the pattern.
The agenda included a brief explanation of how the town will comply with new election rules.
Town council elections in 2014 will move from the spring to the fall per the Consolidated Elections mandate (House bill 2826).
The town will not hold candidate elections in March and May of 2014, but Aug. 26 for the primary and Nov. 4 for the general.
The current mayor and council members terms will extend approximately six additional months to meet the new rules.
Town Attorney Tim Wright also explained town staff is updating the town code.
On June 6, the council directed staff to systematically review the code for any outdated wording or procedures. Wright presented two updated sections, parts one and two “of what will most likely be a 20-30 part process.”
