Utah State Parks is implementing a new system to protect their staff and make sure those using the parks are authorized to be there.

A new pre-pay option allows visitors to pay their park day-use fee online prior to visiting a state park. Those purchasing a pre-paid day use pass online will also be asked to verify they are a resident of the county where the state park is located.

In addition to entertaining a 3 year old during the COVID-19 stay at home days, Park City’s Ted Ligety and his wife Mia, are preparing for the arrival of twins this summer.

Ligety says their fraternal twins are expected in July and it’s an interesting time to be pregnant during the days of the coronavirus.

The Park City Council meets Thursday for a last-minute discussion on the city’s economic status during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The next city council meeting was scheduled for April 16, but Park City Manager Matt Dias says the council needs to be briefed on two important items sooner than later – and the public needs to hear from councilmembers.

Another event many were looking forward to this summer was cancelled Friday – The Tour of Utah.

With commitments to hold the 16th annual Tour of Utah coming up in the next two months, the organizer of the Tour, The Larry H. Miller Sports and Entertainment Group, decided it only made sense to pull the plug now.

John Kimball, the Tour’s Managing Director told KPCW it was a tough decision, but a smart one, given the uncertainly of the COVID-19 pandemic. He says there are a lot of people looking forward to getting back to a new normal this summer…

Non-profits in the Park City area are caught in a dilemma by the COVID-19 outbreak.    The needs they’re serving may well be increasing, but their ability to raise funds has been undermined.

One sign of hope, according to the Park City Community Foundation, is that the recently-approved federal stimulus can help out non-profits as well as small business.   

Katie Wright, Executive Director of the Community Foundation, said that philanthropists around Park City don’t have the resources to help out all the non-profits that need assistance.
