Heber Bypass

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.

The Wasatch County Council meets on Wednesday at 3 P.M. They’ll discuss the potential for a new recreation, arts and parks (RAP) tax and an ordinance establishing a department to serve as a liaison between the county and the Military Installation Defense Authority, the body in charge of the Mayflower Resort development.

 

The Utah Department of Transportation wants feedback from the Heber Valley’s residents, officials and businesses on the potential for a highway bypass around Heber City.

 

The second round of input will be used in UDOT’s environmental impact study for the project later this spring.
