On September 5th Roy City will be part of the primary election. We have three city council positions on the ballot. Nationally, only about 15% to 27% of eligible voters turn out to vote in local elections. Low turnout means that important local issues are determined by a limited group of voters. Whether you chose to vote by mail or in person, please vote. The need to vote is vital to our community, please exercise your rights. Your Choice, Your Vote!
The winter season is approaching, and each homeowner needs to start preparing for the cold days ahead. Checking those batteries on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors is lifesaving in cases of house fires. Surprisingly, cooking is the leading cause of home fires, accounting for 48% of all reported residential fires; a close second is portable heaters. Let’s not forget fires caused by malfunctioning electrical outlets, including those surge protectors and power strips. Overloading and/or plugging power strips into another power strip is a formula for disaster. If you have questions, please reach out to your Roy Fire Department for help. Prevention is the only way to fire safety.
In 2023 and 2024 Roy Public Works Department will be accomplishing 29 road maintenance projects within the city. From overlays to chip seals, the work on those targeted streets will create minor inconvenience to affected residents. We plan to notify those who could be impacted. A map showing the applicable streets is located on the city’s website.
For those returning from Labor Day vacations, Roy City does have free RV dump stations available at 5525 South, just south of the Public Works facility.
Plan now for the Fall cleanup. The Public Works facility will have dumpsters available for residents from Oct 23rd until Nov 4th. Please bring your green waste and/or other acceptable stuff to the facility during normal daily working hours and Saturdays. Check-in is required. By the way, a big thanks to everyone who joined us on the Aug 26th city-wide cleanup. Great success!
School is back in session, so watch for children on the streets. Be safe and keep your family safe!
Mayor Robert Dandoy
