The Council members, as well as comments from the public, expressed support for Option C.
The master agreement defines how much water is needed by each party, when it is needed, infrastructure
required to move water to the needed areas, and the financing of the infrastructure and water. The current update reports no additional water needed for Park City for the next five years, with the potential of surplus water in years 6-10.

Council Continued the discussion of whether to elevate Social Equity to a critical priority to the Council retreat (Feb. 8/9). Beginning the last week in December through February 1, there will be an online community engagement forum on Social Equity to get additional public input on the topic.
During the meeting, Tom Horton offered public input, saying the city should craft the language carefully if/when promoting social equity to a critical priority. He supports social equity but considers it an outcome, not an activity or task.He suggested prioritizing major components of social equity, such as, for example, setting a goal for a living wage, behavioral health, and/or judicial processes.
