The Midway City Council is holding a special meeting on Thursday to decide whether to put an open space bond on November's ballot.

The special meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 17th at 6pm in the city council chambers.  Although the council was scheduled to meet on August 23rd, Mayor Collen Bonner says she'll be gone as well as some of the council members, so if the council wants to put this on this November's ballot, they have to make a decision before the August 25th deadline.

Additional votes will be counted and posted online on Friday. The Election Canvas is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 22 10 a.m. - 25 North Main St. Heber City.
