Consideration to surplus and then sell or develop city property near the Heber City cemetery is no more. After another long public hearing city council voted to take that option to fund their portion of the eastern bypass off the table.

The Heber City eastern bypass will connect Red Ledges traffic to US 40. Red Ledges and future development New London will build the end portions of the bypass, while the city has financial obligations to build a section in the middle. In order to fund the construction of the road the city had considered selling land they owned near the cemetery.
