Granite School District's Long-term Planning and Finance Plans

Plan to attend a meeting on Monday, January 30th at 6:30 p.m. at Skyline.  There will be another meeting on Thursday, February 23rd at 6:30 p.m. at Olympus High School.

Many residents have had issues with snowplowing this winter. Because of the amount of snow that has fallen, there have been delays from time to time in clearing both major and side streets. A particularly difficult problem occurs when snow from the roads is pushed onto sidewalks, creating glaciers that adjacent property owners simply cannot clear. Streets have priority, but, while it may take a few days, the crews generally go around to clear sidewalks of such glaciers. We are working on solutions. If you have issues, please contact the County's 24/7 line at 385-468-6101.

On a very positive note, Mayor Silvestrini received the following email from a constituent:
"Just a shoutout to our County Snow Removal crews!!! This year has been a brutal snow year, especially for residents on hilly narrow streets. I wanted to say: "thank you so very much!!" to our snow removal cews who have worked 24/7 to keep our neighborhoods as clear as possible. And, kudos to the code enforcement  division for helping to remove [an obstruction] that was parked on our street, creating a hazard for cars and pedestrians.They coordinated with the UPD and acted quickly." -- Millcreek resident

The Mayor forwarded this to the supervisors of the plow drivers, the UPD and code enforcement, requesting that they let their people know how much we appreciate them giving up their holidays to work for the residents of Millcreek rather than being with their families  We know they hear about problems, so it's nice to let them know we appreciate them when they do a great job!

The County snowplow crew can be contacted 24/7 at 385-468-6101. The Unified Police Department's non-emergency number is 385-468-9620.
