Linda Milne Named Volunteer of the Year

WEST VALLEY CITY.  Millcreek resident Linda Milne was named as the Volunteer of the Year at the ChamberWest Chamber of Commerce's Annual Awards Gala.

Milne is a member of the Canyon Rim Citizens Association, and of the Millcreek Community Councils Association (formerly the Millcreek Township Council).

Among her many volunteer activities, Milne is active in Utah's Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD), which helps communities like Millcreek become prepared to address and handle major emergencies. Currently, Milne is inventorying emergency cache sites throughout the city, and will be looking for grants to bring those caches up to standard.  Congratulations are well due to one of our very own.
 

Boy Scouts Fill City Meeting

MILLCREEK.  Members of Millcreek's Boy Scout Troops 5, 404, 830, and 1820, filled most of the available chairs at the City Council's February 6th meeting. The Council encourages all Scouts,all Millcreek residents, and anyone else, to attend their meetings.  Both the 4 p.m. and the 6 p.m. sessions are open to the public. (The 4 p.m. session is often the more interesting one.)

We are experimenting with streaming the meeting on Facebook/Millcreek City. 

Scouts listen intently to Chief Steven DeBry's report to the City Council on February 6th.

Bills Pending at Legislature that Affect Millcreek


Millcreek representatives are carefully following several bills at the Legislature that may affect our city going foward:

A House bill not yet numbered (Representative Hemingway), would allow Millcreek to receive its portion of the judgement levy surplus as city startup funds.

SB138 (Senator Mayne), coined the "Community Preservation cleanup bill," would require Millcreek to turn over to the MSD all of its sales tax proceeds and Class A and B road funds within 30 days of receipt. 

SB152 (Senator Iwamoto), would correct a problem caused by the Community Preservation bill and a County Council resolution, to allow the Millcreek mayor to serve an initial three year term and resolve similar problems in other Utah cities. This bill will save Millcreek more than $60,000 in costs necessary to operate the 2017 election.

HB229 (Representative McKay), would modify the membership of districts, and would allow some city councils to vote to leave the police and fire districts without requiring a vote of the people.

SB81 (Senator Andregg) would change home business licensing rules. 

SB110 (Senator Bramble), would require collection of taxes from on line sales.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
