Heber & Midway City Council Meet For First Time In 2020 This Tuesday
Heber and Midway City Council’s gather in their first meeting of the new year on Tuesday. In addition to swearing in new council members both councils also have a full agenda.
Heber City Council meeting begins at 5:00 pm at 75 North Main with the swearing in of the new council members, Rachel Kahler, Ryan Stack and Mike Johnston. Heber Mayor Kelleen Potter says one of the first items on the new council’s agenda is a presentation of a study.
“We’ll be hearing a land use study presentation,” Mayor Potter explained. “Kind of some issues about how much commercial do we need? What's happening with the land that we have?”
The council will be adopting their meeting schedule for the year which will be the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month. The council will also fill three vacancies on the planning commission. Mayor Potter is recommending current commissioner Dave Richards for another term as well as alternate commissioners Sid Ostergaard and Steve Allen to be appointed to the commission for six-year terms. In addition to other items the council will consider approving consulting contracts for the creation of a Cemetery Master Plan and a Parks, Trails and Open Space Master Plan. In her Mayor’s Monday Minute, Mayor Potter asked for members of the public to serve on various boards as part of the city.
“We still need help,” Mayor Potter said. “I'm looking for people to staff our historic preservation board, our open space and trails board, and we're looking for people to be on a steering committee for a master plan study of all of the parks in Heber City. What we want to do to improve them, how we want to handle that in the future.”
Midway City Council meets at 6:00 pm at the Midway Community Center on 160 West Main Street. The council will also swear in new council members Kevin Payne and Steve Dougherty. The council will also consider items including an ordinance that would allow vendor booths on private properties near the city square during Swiss Days in exchange for public parking in those same spots during the rest of the year.
