Pleasant View Mayor Letter

November brings us two significant holidays. First there is Veterans Day. For our younger citizens, Veterans Day originated as Armistice Day on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially changed the name of the holiday from Armistice Day to Veterans Day. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American Veterans … Continue reading Pleasant View Mayor Letter

Mayor’s Message This month I would like to talk about two important matters that affect all of us: Recycling and Water. Back when I was on the City Council (2000-2007), we worked hard to bring recycling to our city. I’m afraid to report that our recycling program is in jeopardy of becoming too costly to continue. The problem that we, as well as other cities, … Continue reading Mayor’s Message Pleasant View

Economic Development Updates

Highway 89 North of 2700 N, in this area of the City, it too faces challenges on access to Highway 89 since this road is owned by UDOT as well. On the West side of the Highway, UDOT only allows three access points, 1100 W, 1325 W, and 1500 W. I consistently get asked, “Why doesn’t the city allow those properties to get developed?” It … Continue reading Economic Development Updates

From The Mayor

Truth and Taxation has been posted. Councilman Steve Gibson has asked me to provide another update on this. The City Council and I completely support our police department and the fact that we have our own police force. This increase is solely for the addition of a police officer. This will provide double coverage at the needed times to handle the ever increasing calls to … Continue reading From The Mayor

August Students of the Month

Koby Pack, Weber High School At the beginning of the school year, I wondered how I would ever be able to choose just one out of my 200 students for Warrior of the Year. There has been one student, however, who has exhibited outstanding dedication from the very first day of class, and that is Koby Pack. Koby’s academic schedule is packed with rigorous courses, … Continue reading August Students of the Month
