Moving Forward with Transition of Control

MILLCREEK.  The feasibility study required by state law to leave the Municipal Services District ("MSD") will be ready before the end of this month and posted on the City's website at Mayor Silvestrini and City Council members will visit each of the Community Council meetings during the first week of May to discuss the findings and listen to the community's thoughts about the study and the MSD.

The City Council will set a public hearing to take place most likely during the week of May 22nd. After considering the study and public input, the Council will determine whether to leave the MSD.

In the meantime, the City Council has invited representatives of many departments in the County to discuss the services they provide. Flood control, stormwater engineering, public works, animal services, and parks and recreation have been some of the highlights.

Mayor Silvestrini has been meeting regularly with county officials to ensure the continued delivery of good services to Millcreek. He has been exploring the possibilities of interlocal agreements directly with the County for street maintenance, snowplowing, animal services, parks, and courts. The City is also considering options for starting up in-house departments, including planning and economic development.

As always, Millcreek intends to continue to utilize the services of the Unified Police Department and the Unified Fire Authority.

The state tax commission and UDOT have been providing more accurate and detailed estimates concerning Millcreek's actual tax revenues.The Mayor is working on a tentative budget for 2017-18, which should be presented to the Council by the end of April. Stay tuned.

Control Your Stormwater

Storm drains flow directly into our streams--and thus impact the homes and recreation of many Millcreek residents. Guidelines are being developed to meet state law that requires cities to retain 90% of all stormwater onsite.  Click here to check out  the Watershed Watch Spring 2017 Newsletter. Learn about low impact development ("LID"), water quality, stream health, and how you can be a good stream steward.

Community Council Study

Millcreek has conducted a study pursuant to state law, Utah Code Section 10-8-2, so that distributions can be made to our four Community Councils. The results of the study can be found here.  The City Council will hold a hearing on May 1, 2017 to discuss and consider a resolution to appropriate the funds.
