Report on Prison Relocation Open House at Frontier Middle School in Eagle Mountain June 2, 2015

I would like to echo the thanks that have been shared by other with our community. We had a massive turnout with residents from Eagle Mountain, Saratoga Springs, Fairfield, and Cedar Fort. This is what we needed to happen. This was a team effort with everyone doing all they could to get the word out and increase attendance. It is amazing what can be accomplished when no one is worried about who gets the credit. I was so grateful that we had the Mayor and City Council from Saratoga Springs…See More

Happy Indepence Day on the 4th of July

Invitation from Mike Owens:

On Saturday Morning July 4th, the Candidates for Eagle Mountain City Council are hosting a Meet and Greet event at the Pavilion just east of Nolan Park in the Ranches at 8:00am. We will start with a flag ceremony then sing the national anthem and read the Declaration of Independence. After a blessing on the food, the candidates will serve free pancakes and talk issues and politics until the pancakes run out and the talking is done, or 10am.

San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman withdrew his request for using Utah's Constitutional Defense Fund for his defense. Many people including Governor Herbert have pledged using their own personal dollars to help Commissioner Lyman defend his driving in Recapture Canyon.

Despite being among the most conservative district in the State and Nation and being predominantly LDS (Mormon), a massive majority supports allowing temporary events such as Oktoberfest to sell beer.

Nearly a 2/3rd majority support some sort of waiting period for scrap metal sales to deter drug addicts from stealing copper for a quick…

Report on Prison Relocation Open House at Frontier Middle School in Eagle Mountain June 2, 2015

I would like to echo the thanks that have been shared by other with our community. We had a massive turnout with residents from Eagle Mountain, Saratoga Springs, Fairfield, and Cedar Fort. This is what we needed to happen.



This was a team effort with everyone doing all they could to get the word out and increase attendance. It is amazing what can be accomplished when no one is worried about who gets the credit.



I was so grateful that we had the Mayor and City Council from Saratoga Springs standing with us just as Eagle Mountain residents had stood with Saratoga Springs to oppose building the prison in their city.

Age matters for CNN's Best Places to Live top 25 youngest cities, and Utah finishes first, with Eagle Mountain claiming the No. 1 spot and three other cities making the list — more than for any other state.

The CNN ranking is taken from 2013 census data projections, and only towns from the Best Places database with populations of 10,000 to 50,000 were included.

According to the rankings, Eagle Mountain — with its population of 23,070 and a median age of 19.9 — is the youngest city from the Best Places database, just edging out…
