City-wide internet on the table in next Heber City Council meeting
Heber City Council and staff meet for the first time in a month tomorrow after missing a regular meeting on election night.
First, the city will certify 2021 election results. This is the final step in the election process and will pave the way for Councilwoman Heidi Franco to take over as mayor in 2022, and for Scott Phillips and Yvonne Barney to join the council.
The meeting could also begin the process to provide internet for all in Heber. City Manager Matt Brower says he hopes the council will vote to begin a due diligence period to come to an agreement with a company in Roosevelt. After four to six months, that could result in a city-wide fiber internet network.
The council will also hear preliminary requests for two subdivisions. Each would develop nearly 50 new lots, one as part of the Jordanelle Ridge development north of town and the other on the west side of town in the Meadows at Southfield.
In a work meeting before the regular council meeting, city staff will discuss other major projects.
They’ll consider creating five public infrastructure districts to finance Jordanelle Ridge development. In a third consecutive work meeting, they’ll also discuss the master development agreement for the Highlands annexation near the Utah Valley University Wasatch campus.
The work meeting begins at 4 p.m., and the regular meeting at 7 p.m. They’ll take place at City Hall, 75 North Main Street in downtown Heber City.
