Four undocumented workers were arrested after stealing identities and participate in other illegal activities.

As we’ve reported four men were arrested in Summit County two weeks ago following an operation by the SECURE Strikeforce from the Utah Attorney General’s Office.  The men were arrested for a total of 17 felonies and have since been detained by ICE officials. Investigations Chief with the Utah Attorney General’s Office, Leo Lucey explains how the identities were stolen.


The Tervels Fire has burned 585 acres as of Tuesday morning, and is only 5% contained.  Investigators say the fire is human caused and an arson investigation is underway, according to the government website,

The fire started around 2pm Monday, 6.5 miles northeast of Coalville off of I-80 eastbound, near the I-84 junction and Echo Reservoir.  It produced a big plume of smoke that could be seen from miles away.

Mountain Accord

The Summit County Council on Wednesday approved the next step the county is taking in its role with the Central Wasatch Commission.

As we reported, the Central Wasatch Commission approved a seat at the table for Park City, and is allowing the county a position as the Wasatch Back representative.

Given that, as council member Chris Robinson noted, they modified an interlocal agreement they had with Park City, which previously governed their joint representation on the commission.

The Summit County council this Wednesday had their first conversation about amending the Basin Code to allow mobile food trucks. After that, says council member Chris Robinson, they needed further information about the topic.

The council continued the topic and didn’t make a decision about allowing food trucks and food courts.

Robinson told KPCW they had several concerns.

A proposal to amend the Snyderville Code to allow mobile food trucks ran into some challenges from the Summit County Council Wednesday. In the end, the council put off the action on the change.

Council members were concerned about how the trucks would impact brick and mortar businesses. And they asked for more research on how they can regulate the trucks for health, safety and welfare reasons.

Under the amended code, forwarded from the Snyderville Planning Commission, the mobile trucks could set up on private property in commercial zones within the basin.

  It’s an issue they can’t get away from, especially at night. The Snyderville Planning Commission on Tuesday discussed revising their code on lighting requirements.

Snyderville Commissioner Malena Stevens says they hope to have something finalized in a couple of months.

Stevens said the Planning Commission and their staff are looking to update the lighting code to reflect current technology.

Deputy Summit County Manager Janna Young says the county understands that the current roadwork on Kilby Road is frustrating for motorists--especially parents dropping off their kids at Ecker Hill Middle School.

But Young told KPCW that the improvements to the road are essential.

Young said that the county has been talking about improvements to the road for two years.

Mountain Accord

The Central Wasatch Commission has agreed to provide a seat at the table for Park City. Summit County is getting one too as the Wasatch back representative.

The Summit County Council is following up on that as part of their agenda Wednesday.

The council is meeting at the Coalville Courthouse. Shortly before 5:00 pm they will consider amending their Interlocal Agreement with Park City, concerning the Central Wasatch group.

The Commission, in its earlier form, was known as the Mountain Accord.
