Dear PRC members,
I wanted to share a concern that I have with considering the two sites in the Cedar Valley (Eagle Mountain and Fairfield) for the new location for the state prison. This concern is not one that is covered in the data reported by MGT.

Nothing really surprising from the Survey Results from my 2015 Survey.
I had intended to ask the question about authorizing Governor to veto uses of Federal Education funds. However, I tried to re-order that survey question, but it was left out of the survey. The State Board of Ed failed to pass this motion on a 7-7 tie.
San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman withdrew his request for using Utah's Constitutional Defense Fund for his defense. Many people…Continue

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…
