It is anticipated that by the first of June, we will have a decision from the Utah Transportation Commission on the timing of the 5600 South and I-15 Interchange construction project. This $230 million dollar investment, when completed, will bring significant improvements to the traffic challenges we routinely experience in Roy City. Once the details are released by UDOT and made public, we will certainly make you aware.
This month, the city council and staff will be addressing our 2022 annual budget. It is important for you to know how your tax dollars are being spent. Again, there is no Roy City property tax increase in this budget. We will be holding public meetings to keep you informed, please consider joining us or at least watching as we work through this process.
With the pandemic finally winding down and the new normal coming into focus, Roy City government will start the long-awaited re-opening. Late last month, we started opening our doors to bring residents back into the public facilities. Plans are being made to open our Aquatic Center as well as all other services. The city council will start holding normal public meetings this month. There will still be some cautionary plans in place, but we will finally get back to face-to-face dialogue on important issues. Some of the communication technology used over this last year will be retained and continued. Having residents engaged in local issues makes for better government.
As always, we welcome your comments and value your input. If you have questions or ideas, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or the city council at email@example.com. If you’re not sure, you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important that your ideas and recommendations are considered.
Be safe and keep your family safe.
Robert Dandoy, Mayor
