Helper council meeting on March 16 brought light to several matters introduced to the city officials.

The council has decided that the location of the city's swimming pool will move slightly toward the tennis courts, but remain in basically the same site as the old facility.

Cement removal from the old pool will start when the engineer on the project indicates that the ground is stable at the site.

While working at the site, crews removing the city's recently abandoned outdoor facility discovered the remains of a second pool at the location.

Therefore, the mayor and city councilmembers are considering the removeal of the concrete slab ffrom the older outdoor facility before proceeding with the new swimming pool construction project.

In a related matter, the Helper officials indicated that a fundraiser is being planned to generate revenues for the city swimming pool project. The theme will be casino night.

There was a question about whether the city should allow hard alcoholic beverages, not just beer, to be served at the pool fundraiser.

The officials discussed the pros and cons of issuing an alcohol permit as well as a beer license for the fundraiser.

The mayor and council discussed the issue bcause of the licenses and insurance that have to be purchased before the event.

An unrelated topic of discussion at the Helper City Council meeting involved a request introduced to officials by a local monument company.

The business asked Helper officials to raise the upright headstone height requirements at Mountain View Cemetery from two feet to 27 inches.

The problem with the 24-inch heighth is the restriction causes the uprights to exceed the limitation, stated the representatives from the company.

However, Helper officials indicated that raising the 24-inch limit will create problems with watering at the cemetery.

Higher headstones also tend to start to tilt, added the officials.

The council declined the monument company's request and indicated that the height limit will remain the same at the cemetery.

In addition, Helper city has applied for a grant to purchase a pumper truck from the United States Department of Agriculture.

The city also plans to request funding for the fire truck from the Utah Permanent Community Impact Board.

A Mac truck currently owned by the city will be sold if the grant funding comes through, according to the Helper mayor and councilmembers.
