Utah Clean Cities

Salt Lake City-based nonprofit Utah Clean Cities was awarded $1.8 million in federal funding last month for the advancement of electric vehicles in the state.

 

The $1.8 million comes from a partnership between Utah Clean Cities and the U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Vehicle Technologies program.

 

According to Utah Clean Cities, the money will go towards efforts to further the adoption of electric vehicles in the state for both personal and commercial uses.

 

Park City Municipal

Discussion around a proposed toxic soils site on the outskirts of Park City along SR 248 have taken center stage over the past several weeks after members of the community accused city hall of a lack of transparency in the process. Public feedback was taken at last week’s city council meeting. The message? Let’s take our time. 

 

Following a discussion at their meeting May 12th, the Summit County Council has asked their staff to look at a community cat program that could help monitor and reduce the population of feral felines.   

County Council Member Roger Armstrong said they need more information on how the program works in other areas of the country, and how other local ordinances allow it.

Summit County’s animal control staff didn’t recommend the idea, in a report that listed the “pros” and “cons”.     But Armstrong said it seemed to him that the “cons” were issues that already exist.
