Murdock Canal Road
For years, a proposed East-West road has been proposed near the Murdock Canal in Highland. Highland City is planning on building this road. However, due to certain legal requirements and the proximity to the Utah State Developmental Center, the State Legislature must give its approval for this new development. The City Councils of Highland City and American Fork have passed formal resolutions in support of this construction. Cedar Hills has voiced its support for this construction project as well. On Tuesday, Jan. 10, @ 6pm, the Alpine School Board will consider a resolution in support of this project, as well. I, personally, am in support of this project. Those involved want to make sure that all parties are taken care of, while allowing an East-West corridor that facilitates quicker times to AF Hospital without using SR-92.
Non-Discrimination Policy and Property Purchases
Also, a discussion about possible changes to our non-discrimination policy will be addressed, and several property purchase resolutions. To read the policy proposal and the resolutions, download the "Meeting Documents" found here.)
Summit Energy Proposal
A proposal to obtain Natural Gas through Summit Energy instead of Questar for our secondary schools is also on the agenda. The proposal shows a significant cost savings on an annual basis. Summit Energy presented to the Board on Jan. 3, 2017. You can listen to the audio here.
