Bradburn Brief: September 2018
BACK-TO-SCHOOL SAFETY: School is back in and the sounds of parents rejoicing can be heard all over Sandy! This time of year is a good opportunity for the city to refocus our attention on school safety and our efforts to keep your children protected. From Police to Public Works, every Sandy City department is working hard to make our community a safe place to raise a family. We can all ensure that kids get back to school safely by volunteering for the “Operation Safe Passage” program. This program is designed to protect children from any dangers they may encounter walking to and from bus stops and school. Learn more about the program by visiting: sandy.utah.gov/departments/police-department/crime-prevention/operation-safe-passage
COMMUNITY EVENTS: Events are a big part of creating a sense of community and it is a major priority for me to have those events bring value to your families. I have asked the Community Events Department to evaluate each event to determine if there are improvements that can be made in order to better fit residents’ needs. We would love your input on new events that would contribute to our community or any enhancements we could make to the events we traditionally hold. There will be an events survey sent out in October so please be sure to send us your feedback!
NEW CITY SERVE APP: We are rolling out a new app called “Sandy CityServe” that allows you to take a picture of any issues that need the city’s attention. Everything from potholes to graffiti or a malfunctioning streetlight can now be captured via the app. It will then alert the appropriate department with your request. This service will help us to respond faster and allow us to streamline and prioritize our work orders. We are very excited for our official rollout in September and hope to get your input on how to make this service better.
CONNECT WITH US: Lastly, please remember that you can always engage with us to get more information by going to our websites: sandy.utah.gov and SandyNow.com, and by accessing our social media channels: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube for daily updated information.
Thank you for allowing me to serve you.
—Mayor Kurt Bradburn
