NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah (AP) - Nine months after a severe landslide destroyed property and displaced families in North Salt Lake, no steps have been taken to prevent another disaster.

With the city and developer Sky Properties dodging blame, there is no one to pay the $2 million remediation expense.

The city developed a plan and offered to put forward $200,000 for the work. But Sky Properties has not agreed to pay anything.

About 150 people showed up to hear the North Salt Lake City Council address the issue during its Tuesday meeting, with several residents lining up to ask pointed questions.

A geologist warned also warned the council that the landslide that devastated Eaglepointe Estates could repeat itself with the right amount of snow or rain.

Thirty minutes later, a rainstorm began to pound city hall.
