Highland

The Highland City Council will meet Tuesday to discuss a change in the municipal code.

The proposed change in the code would limit use of pressurized irrigation water by users of large amounts of water. Those tied into a 2-inch water line or greater would have an annual amount they could use and would be fined for exceeding the limit.

The council will decide Tuesday what the limit should be and how much they will fine. Hot and dry conditions are a big factor in the decision to implement the change.

Highland City Council meets Tuesday at 7 p.m. at 5378 W. 10400 North in the Highland City Building.

BYU

Volunteers are needed Aug. 14-16 for the annual training conference for LDS seminary and institute teachers.

Some 10,000 church educators are expected to register for this year's conference at Brigham Young University.

A one-hour training session for volunteers will be held at 10 a.m. Aug. 10 in Room 2295 of the BYU Conference Center.

For information, call 378-2523 or come to 294 Harman Continuing Education Building on the BYU campus.

Volunteers serve as hosts and hostesses during the training sessions.

For three shifts of service, volunteers will be invited to attend some of the sessions, an address by a general authority and a complimentary dinner.

They also will receive lunch on Wednesday and Thursday.

Provo schools

A new school built in southeast Provo to replace the 102-year-old Maeser Elementary has been given a name: Spring Creek.

Sharon Emero, a teacher at Maeser, said 237 suggestions were submitted to a committee that gave recommendations to Provo City School District's Board of Education.

The board unanimously voted last month to accept the new name. The school is expected to open in the coming school year.

Spanish Fork

Utah llamas and their handlers will compete in a show ring, obstacle course and a half-mile pack race at the seventh annual Llama Fest on Saturday, July 14.

KHQN Radio, the Krishna Temple and Utah Valley Llamas will host the festival. Demonstration booths will show wool spinning and felting techniques, llama shearing and hoof cutting.

Children can have a hands-on experience with baby llamas (cria) in a corral.

Continuous live music and food booths will offer south-of-the-border music and food.

Admission is $2 per person or $6 per family of parents and small children.

The Llama Fest also has the support of grants from the Utah Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The event is next to the new Krishna Temple, a mile south of Spanish Fork on Main Street.

Woodland Hills

Construction of a new booster pump to improve water service could start by Sept. 1.

The City Council reviewed plans last week and wants proposals from LEI Consulting Engineers of Spanish Fork by Aug. 15, City Recorder Beth Wilding said.

The water study includes not only the booster pump, expected to cost at least $150,000, but also new water storage capacity of 750,000 gallons that could cost as much as $600,000, paid from construction impact fees.

Woodland Hills has a 240,000-gallon tank now but must keep 180,000 gallons available for fire suppression.

The new booster station will more rapidly refill the current tank and improve water distribution to the 1,200 residents, Wilding said.
