Bradburn Brief - February 2019
Dear Sandy Residents,
I hope you are surviving the cold weather and finding opportunities to enjoy some of our abundant winter outdoor recreation options. My children love sledding so we try to get out to Sandy’s parks as soon as there is a new snow fall.
The return of winter weather also brings the return of inversions. We can all contribute to cleaner air by turning off cars while parked, carpooling to work and school and limiting driving when you can. Swapping out wood burning fireplaces for gas fireplaces, keeping your thermostat set two degrees lower and using a four stroke snowblower model are a few examples of how you can mitigate air pollution. If you have made the switch to an electric vehicle, I am excited to announce we have partnered with Rocky Mountain Power to provide electric charging stations at City Hall, Alta Canyon Recreation Center, River Oaks Golf Course, Parks and Recreation Building (440 E 860 S), Public Works Building (8775 S 700 W) and the Sandy Amphitheater.
Winter weather also means our Snow Plow drivers are out in full force. Please park cars off the streets and give plenty of room to clear the roads while driving in close proximity. Removing obstacles allows for faster snow removal and less opportunities for property damage.
Thanks to all the residents who turned out for the Alta Canyon Sports Center meetings.
We appreciated your feedback and direction you provided for the future of the Rec Center. It is important to me that this facility continue to provide value to our community and your input is critical to that goal. If you missed one of the public forums and want to voice your opinion please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t forget you can connect with us to get more information by going to our City websites sandy.utah.gov and SandyNow.com and by accessing our social media channels Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube for daily updated information. Make sure to download the Sandy CityServe app to alert city staff on issues that need attention.
It’s an honor to serve you!
Mayor Kurt Bradburn
