KPCW reporter David Boyle covers all things in the Heber Valley as well as sports and breaking news.

Although this is ‘technically’ David’s first full-time job he joins the news team with plenty of experience working at his hometown newspaper the San Juan Record along with internships at KUER, KSL and BYU Radio as well as a degree in News Media from BYU.

Originally from Monticello, Utah, David also has deep ties to the Heber Valley. His grandfather Bob Clyde was a sheep rancher in the valley and also represented the county in the Utah State Legislature for 16 years.

If he’s not in the KPCW bullpen you can find David hiking with his wife Emily, skiing, watching NBA basketball or re-runs of Seinfeld and The Office.

At their Tuesday evening meeting, the Heber City planning commission unanimously voted in favor of regulating lighted signage within the city.

The discussion came as a request from Heber City Council and focused on bringing the city into compliance with dark sky initiatives. The International Dark Sky Association has outlined light zones that range from a zero rating, which would represent wilderness, to a four, which would be equivalent to New York City.

City planner Jamie Baron recommended that the city aim for level one. 

Sixteen-year Wasatch County councilman Kendall Crittenden is defending the Heber South Seat against challenger Elizabeth Hokanson, a veteran of Heber City politics, in Tuesday’s Republican primary election.

Crittenden pointed to major developments like the Wasatch County Event Complex and Red Ledges as ‘wins’ during his time on the council.
