With all members present per Recorder Andy Snyder’s roll call, Vice President of Davis Health System Marking and Development Tracy Fath gave a presentation to the Davis Town Council regarding the future Davis Health Systems Walk In Clinic that will occupy a section of Shop N’ Save, which has been in consideration since 2019.
It was highly recommended and needed for the clinic to offer evening and weekend hours, which Fath stated the hours being considered are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., and on Sundays from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. The clinic would operate under the care of one full time Nurse Practitioner and two part-time PRNs, and two licensed medical assistants. The needs for radiology will be evaluated for consideration during their first year of operation. The pharmacy that is currently in Parsons will also be relocated to the entry way of Shop N’ Save.
Councilman Al Tomson expressed concern with sick patients entering through the grocery store to access the clinic. This topic was discussed at length and taken into advisement. The plan is for the facility to open for service the middle of June.
A motion was made by Tomson and Councilman John Felton to approve the minutes from March 10, 2021 as presented. Mayor Doug Martin provided the accounts payable to the Council Members and gave a brief update on the water improvements project. Tomson and Councilwoman Cindy Robeson made a motion to pay the bills with all in favor.
Councilman Terry Helmick presented a list of projects pertaining to the streets, sidewalks, and alleys for acknowledgement. Moving into old business, the Council discussed the need to set back dwellings and buildings so many feet from the property boundaries. It was suggested that the spacing be at least 10 feet at the back of the property, three feet on each side, 10 feet from the sidewalks, and 10 feet at the front of the property. After brief conversation, Martin stated he would write up an ordinance to present to the Council for review and approval.
There were three building permits submitted to the Town of Davis for approval, consisting of one for a fence, one for a shed, and one for a garage. All permits were approved unanimously by the Council.
The lay of the levy will take place on April 20 at 5 p.m. At the conclusion of business, Robeson made a motion to adjourn with Councilwoman Jeannette Tekavec Ware offering a second with all in favor. The Davis Town Council will meet again on Wednesday, April 14, at 6:30 p.m.
