On the agenda
Salt Lake County
What: Public hearing on a proposal to put the Olympic speed-skating oval in the Salt Palace.
When: 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23
Where: Salt Lake County Commission Chambers, Salt Lake County Government Center, 2001 S. State St.
Why should I care? Since county officials came up with this proposal, Salt Lake Mayor Deedee Corradini has withdrawn Block 49 as a possible site for the oval. Now there are only two sites under consideration by the Utah Sports Authority for the project: the Salt Palace and a community recreation center in Kearns. State taxpayers are contributing $3.7 million toward the cost of the oval.
