In 2018 a concerned Roy resident informed me of traffic conditions at the intersection of 4000 South and 1900 West. It appears Dale and many others had experienced vehicle accidents while turning right off 4000 South onto 1900 West. After gathering the reported traffic accident data at that location, I immediately sent a letter to UDOT and asked for their assessment and possible safety improvements. As a result of this resident bringing this issue to light and his commitment to finding a better solution, UDOT will begin making the needed changes to this intersection starting as early as April 2023 and lasting through early summer.
Every two years Roy City, like all local governments, will hold a municipal election. This year we have three city council positions that will be on the ballot with the candidate filing date of June 1st through June 7th, 2023. Whether you consider running for office or voting for the best candidates, good government has always been and will continue to be about citizen engagement. It is never too early to start planning and preparing to make a difference, so please register to vote!
May is the month we recognize two important moments in our lives, Mother’s Day, and Memorial Day. Both holidays can find their roots in the misery and aftermath of the American Civil War. One celebrates how much mothers sacrificed for their children, while the other commemorates all members who died in military service to this nation. As we recognize the contribution that our mothers have made in our personal lives, may we also acknowledge the contributions that many have made in protecting our freedom. Take a moment to show the mothers in your life how you appreciate them. On May 29th, at the Roy Cemetery, take the time to share a moment by helping us place an American flag on service member graves that helped protect our freedom. Action is the best way to promote lasting memories.
Be safe and keep your family safe!
Mayor Robert Dandoy
