Heber City

The Heber City Council heard from Utah State Rep. Mike Kohler at its Tuesday regular meeting.


Kohler represents District 54, which comprises Wasatch County and the Park City area, on Capitol Hill. He told the Heber councilors that the state anticipates receiving nearly $1.5 billion in American Rescue Act funds. 


He thinks the process for determining which projects or programs get the money will be extensive.


Hideout Utah

CORRECTION: Updated 5/10/21 to reflect that Mustang's offer to sell the Outlaw Golf Course was made to the Community Preservation HOA, not the Town of Hideout and that it would be the HOA that would have been responsible for payments to Mustang.

The offer to sell the Outlaw Golf Club at Hideout Canyon to the Hideout homeowners association has been retracted by Mustang Development.


Kamas City

With continued concern over Utah’s drought, Kamas City has started to implement water restrictions.

About a month ago, the Weber Basin Water Conservancy District had to reduce all of its irrigation contracts because of drought conditions in Utah. Kamas, which sources water from the district, was notified that this would affect the city.

Hideout Town

Hideout homeowners have to decide whether to purchase a golf course in their community. If they don’t, the current owner says he will sell to someone else.


The Outlaw Golf Club at Hideout Canyon is a 9-hole golf course on roughly 60 acres of land on the northwest shore of the Jordanelle Reservoir.


According to documents obtained by KPCW, the golf course’s owner, Mustang Development, offered to sell the course to the town for $9.5 million, saying that is much less than the market value of $13.5 million.

Park City Professional Ski Patrol Association

The union representing the ski patrollers at Park City Mountain Resort and resort representatives will continue negotiations this month after their contract expired on May 1st.


After an unprecedented winter for the ski industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the ski patrollers at PCMR and resort representatives were also locked in negotiations to update their employment contract. Even though PCMR’s season ended in mid-April, those negotiations are set to extend at least until later in May.


Park City Municipal

The Park City LGBTQIA+ community task force is starting to take shape. Members of the new group spoke with KPCW about what the future might hold and why the group is important for the greater Park City community.


In an effort to further Park City’s social equity goals and give the greater LGBTQIA+ community in Park City a seat at the table of local government, the community task force was formed in early February.

Heber City

If you’re interested in running for municipal office in Utah, the filing window is June 1 to June 7. 


In November, Heber City and Midway will hold mayoral elections. Both have two open council seats. Six other Wasatch County towns are holding local elections.


Park City School District

It's graduation season which means the area high schools are planning processions and ceremonies honoring the accomplishments of Wasatch Back high school seniors.


This year high school seniors throughout the Wasatch Back will gather to celebrate the auspicious transition from high school to adulthood. It's not a complete return to normal, though, as COVID-19 restrictions dictate social distancing and mask-wearing.


  Utah’s COVID-19 cases have been down week over week for the last seven days.

In the Wasatch Back, Summit County reported seven new cases. In comparison last Wednesday the county saw five. Wasatch County also reported seven new cases, which is the highest case count in Wasatch since April 15.
