Huntington City discusses Heritage Days
At the July Huntington City Council meeting, the recently completed city celebration Heritage Days was a hot topic by all as they discussed another successful event.
Mayor Hilary Gordon thanked everyone that worked so hard to bring off the annual celebration. The multi-day affair was well attended with a lot of participation in each event and the council people also thanked everyone for coming and for all their help. The city is looking forward to next year's event.
Jonathan Johansen of Johansen and Tuttle Engineering gave a report on the projects under way in the city. The city is constructing a walking trail from the ball complex to the corner of Highway 10 and 400 East that will go to the north of the road in front of Wheeler Caterpillar. Emery County is constructing a trail that will go to the lake.
The city is also building a concession stand/ restroom building at the fairgrounds on the north side of the facility. Johansen put forth three options as to the manner of construction with the council choosing to go with a wood frame structure. The design will be finished in about four weeks.
In other business, two new businesses received business licenses, Rebecca Petersen is operating a home cleaning service and a vacuum parts business. Ironhorse Industries is a home-based welding truck that will work most of the time in the Uintah Basin.
The Mayor reported that vehicles are parked on city streets and several councilmen are adamant that the ordinance is not changed and that it is enforced in the future. The city will send out appropriate notifications to the offending property owners to see if they will come into compliance.
