Happy New Year!!
I hope you enjoyed the holidays and made some happy memories to appreciate in the future. I heard many compliments about our city Christmas tree and how beautiful our Main Street looked this year.
Big thanks to our City Staff who worked so hard to make that happen. Our City Manager, Parks Manager and staff and Public Works Manager and staff really went above and beyond to make sure we had a downtown we could be proud of this holiday season. I am truly grateful for our professional, hardworking, and dedicated staff.
One way to get more involved in Heber City is by serving on one of our City boards. We have many committed citizens who spend long hours studying issues and providing input to the City Council. One of our most important boards is the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission makes recommendations to the City Council and in 2019 will be particularly busy and influential as they help update our general plan.
This is particularly important as it will guide the planning process for the foreseeable future and determine many things about the future of Heber City.
We are currently accepting applications for two alternate planning commissioners. The requirement is to be a Heber City resident or own property in Heber City. The regular meetings are the second and fourth Tuesdays, of each month, at 6:00 pm. If you are interested, you can submit a resume and letter explaining your relevant experience and why you are interested to Meshelle Kijanen at firstname.lastname@example.org. I intend to make these appointments in the next couple of weeks.
