Public hearing


An 11th-hour agreement between Salt Lake County and Sandy should allow a scheduled public hearing to flow smoothly tonight. The county and city agreed Tuesday to apply jointly for a state license that would allow paramedics to be housed at Sandy's four fire stations. The city is currently served by county paramedics stationed outside the city.

Sandy had planned to apply for the license separately, but some county paramedics expressed concerned about the plan, which would have decreased their service area. If the license is approved, the county would hire nine paramedics next year and the city would train 21 of its firefighters to become paramedics over the next three years.

The county and city will present their application before the state Emergency Medical Services Committee at 6 p.m. at Sandy City Hall. The committee will meet Jan. 11 to make a decision on the request.

Local government


At its Tuesday, Dec. 21, meeting, the City Council:

- Denied a zoning change request that would have divided a 1.92-acre parcel in the Fox Meadows subdivision into three lots. The council agreed with area residents who argued the smaller lots would not be consistent with the rest of the neighborhood, where homes are built on larger lots.


At its Tuesday, Dec. 21, meeting, the City Council:

- Amended its zoning ordinance to allow for a family health clinic in a residential neighborhood at 11400 S. 1000 East.
