During the November 15 City Council Meeting, Police Chief James discussed with the council the concern of Prescription Opioid Deaths in Utah.    He presented a handout to them and felt it would be good for the public to also see the handout.   Here is the link to the handout (click here).

 

 



Salem City has provided a trailer at the Veteran's ballpark, 60 N. 100 E., for leaves.  This is for leaves in bags only, no other green waste will be accepted.

The Green Waste Yard is closed.   There are still vouchers available at the city office to take your green waste over to the South Utah Valley Solid Waste transfer station in Springville.  You are allowed 2 vouchers a year.   They are good until the end of November.   


 

 

 PI (Pressurized Irrigation) System

The PI system is now shut down (16th of October).   Please make sure your system is shut off and if it needs to be winterized, please do so.    Also make sure in the spring your system is still shut off to avoid any potential flooding when it is turned back on.   


City Manager
 

After much research the City Council and Mayor approved an ordinance creating a City Manager position on September 20, 2017.   The council felt it was time to create the manager position and to help with the day-to-day administration operations of the city, especially as we continue to grow with residential and commercial growth.   The next step in this process will be to create a job description.   As we look at other cities similar in size and in our general area who have a city manager position, we will be reviewing their descriptions and pay range to help us create ours.   This process will take a little bit of time.
