FRUIT HEIGHTS — The city is seeking public input on three proposed options for funding repairs and improvements to deteriorating roads.
Fruit Heights Mayor Don Carroll, the City Council and city staff have discussed the city’s streets, reviewed current street conditions, and researched maintenance options for the streets. Under current funding options, officials said, adequate funds are not available for the projects.
The mayor and City Council have invited city residents to a public meeting where people can comment on the options, Tuesday June 16, 7 p.m. at Fruit Heights City Hall, 910 S. Mountain Road.
The three options are: Option A, property tax increase; Option B, implement a “Utility Transportation Fund”; and Option C, a combination of options A and B.
Through the adoption and implementation of an adequate funding source, the city says it will be more able to provide the necessary funds needed to make repairs and improvements to rapidly deteriorating roads, sidewalks, and curb and gutter.
Residents unable to attend the meeting, can email the mayor and council at email@example.com.
