Attention Residents:  Because so many trees were damaged during last week's storm, the City has decided to open the green waste area on Friday, Saturday, and Monday to help with this problem. The gate will be manned so you will need a city bill to dump limbs.  The hours will be:
Friday, July 28th - 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Saturday, July 29th - Noon to 6:00 pm

Monday, July 31st - 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm


Several homes were affected by the flooding on Wednesday, July 19, 2017. In order for the City to assess how many homes were flooded and sustained property damage, we would like to hear from you. Please let us know your name, address, phone number, and how the storm impacted you and your home.

You can call the City Office at 801-423-2770, or send an e-mail to, or send a notification on the City Facebook page.

Thank you to all the residents that checked on their neighbors and helped with the clean-up.
