The Roy Parks & Recreational team provides an assortment of activities and services within the city, from the Recreational Complex to the youth sports events and pickleball courts. Numerous studies have shown that parks and recreation facilities not only provide health and environmental benefits but provide economic value and social importance to the community. Studies suggest that building trails and parks helps reduce crime. Whether you daily take advantage of these services or drop by occasionally, they are a wonderful and needed resource that enhances our quality of life. Recent Roy public meetings have focused on the failure of our Complex swimming pool boiler that has resulted in shutting the pool down. In response to this unexpected situation, a fundraising invitation has been established for residents and the neighboring communities to help replace it. If you think you would like to help support this important effort, please contact the United Way of Northern Utah with your tax-deductible donation. For more information, please go to the Roy City home page website under Recreation Complex Fundraiser. Large or small, every donation counts.
Recent meetings with UDOT indicated they are still progressing with the widening of 5600 South, although moving a bit slower than originally planned. Please get the latest updates from the Roy City home page website under 5600 South UDOT Project or call 385-383-6576 if you have questions.
With fall finally here and Halloween at the end of the month, please take the time to clean up the fallen leaves and windblown debris. Cooler temperatures are coming, and it is time to get our homes, businesses, and vehicles ready. The city will have dumpsters available for residents’ green waste from October 17-29 at the Public Works facility. Let’s not forget to be extra careful while driving; slow down when traveling through our neighborhoods. Keep a close look-out for those “trick-or-treaters” parading in our streets. Safety is everyone’s responsibility.
Roy City Mayor
