July 24th Celebration
The 2014 July 24th
celebration was a huge success. What an awesome firework show, the
Party Crashers Band was amazing, and the parade was perfect.
Many thanks to the Mapleton Utah Stake
volunteers for their undertaking of the morning events (flag
ceremony, 5k race, parade, activities, games, entertainment, etc.).
Also, a big thanks to our many sponsors and volunteers who helped
make all of our evening events (helicopter ping pong ball drop,
skydivers, band, fireworks, etc.) possible.
I would also like to thank Mapleton
City Council (Ryan Farnworth, Scott Hansen, Jim Lundberg, Mike
Nelson, and Jonathan Reid), Mapleton City Police Department, Public
Safety, Public Works, Parks and Recreation, and the Mapleton City
Urban Deer Control Plan
I continue to receive complaints
regarding the increased deer population encroaching in farms, yards,
flower gardens, roads, etc. This type of environment allows deer to
remain year-round within our community. Staff has been working with
the Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) to establish a program
which 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.
At this time I am inviting all farmers
within the community who are interested in meeting with the DWR to
contact April Houser with Mapleton City by Monday, August 18th
requesting to be added to the list. Once the list has been compiled
both Staff and the farmers will meet with the DWR to establish a
depredation mitigation plan. With the issuance of a permit from the
DWR the farmer/designee will be allowed to remove the deer by using
a method recommended and approved by the City Council. April can be
reached by email at
firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 801-806-9109.
Important Message Concerning Your Utility Bill
Please note that the City did NOT
apply the new culinary water or pressurized irrigation water rates
on this billing.
Due to confusion as to when the meters
were read the City decided it would be fairer to delay the
implementation of the new rates for one more billing cycle.
Because this bill includes usage from
June 16 through July 15, the new rates will NOT go into effect UNTIL
your next billing which will include usage from approximately July
16th through August 16th.
For those of you who are on, or who
have recently connected to the pressurized irrigation system, the
City has not charged for usage on this bill.
Rather you were billed a flat monthly
Your next bill will be based on usage
using the new pressurized irrigation water rates.
City felt it was important to make you aware of this change so that
you do not use this bill as a gauge for future billings.
