Urban Deer Control Plan
Hopefully each of you has taken the
opportunity to read last month’s Mayor’s Message in the City
Newsletter as I discussed efforts in working with the Division of
Wildlife Resources (DWR) to establish an Urban Deer Control Plan.
This Plan will improve safety on city roads and Hwy 89, reduce deer
numbers within city limits, promote safe and cost effective deer
removal, and reduce property damage caused by urban deer. I
appreciate all of the comments I received by the residents regarding
As this Plan moves forward we
anticipate the possibility of available deer meat. If you are
interested in being placed on a waiting list to be notified when
meat is available you may contact April Houser with Mapleton City
either by email at
firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 801-806-9109. Please keep in
mind that you will be responsible in covering the costs for the
processing of the meat.
Keep Your Kids Safe during the School Year
With the school year having started,
more cars are on the roads, and more children are walking to school
at the height of the morning commute. As we aim in getting kids to
and from school as safely as possible please follow the rules for
driving in school zones.
Keep in mind that as children
transition from vacation to school they tend to be excited and are
likely to do something unexpected such as darting across the middle
of the street and avoiding the crosswalk. Make sure to watch out for
children’s safety when they’re walking near traffic.
May you and your family have a very
safe and successful new school year!
