Growth and water: East Side candidates discuss issues

Growth and water: These issues come up in nearly every conversation with candidates on Summit County’s East Side ahead of the Nov. 2 election. The mayor’s office and at least two city council positions are up for grabs in municipalities across Utah. In Summit County’s East Side, there are unopposed mayoral races in Kamas, Francis and Henefer, but voters will choose the person to fill their city’s highest post in Coalville and Oakley. They will do so, as well, in the Wasatch County town of Hideout, which has inserted itself recently into Summit County politics by attempting to annex county-controlled land.

Tom Clyde: One Wasatch Back

The municipal elections are coming right up. Ballots are already be in the mail, though changes at the post office will slow their arrival. I live in unincorporated Summit County, so there isn’t an election for city council members in my neighborhood. In fact, I think the only thing on a ballot in my area is the Summit County open space bond. That’s a proposal to borrow $50 million to buy land or the development rights on land. Preservation of the farmland in that beautiful meadow that extends from Kamas to Wanship is a worthy goal. $50 million is a modest beginning. In our insane real estate market, it won’t go very far. But it’s a good start.

Where should Park City employees live?

The housing crisis is worse than ever in mountain resort towns across the globe—and in Park City, it’s increasingly challenging to find affordable housing. “Help Wanted” signs dot the windows of local restaurants, retailers, and hotels. Tourists have descended on local Airbnb rentals. Home prices are rising, and the number of long-term rentals available is shrinking. This summer, the median home price in Park City rose to $3 million and $1.29 million in Summit County, according to the Park City Board of Realtors and the county.

Letters, Oct. 16-19: Readers weigh in on elections, bond measures

We all have people in our lives who make us a better version of ourselves. They show us what it means to be authentic, honest, hard working, humble, etc. At different points in my life I have come across someone like this and only had a few moments or days to soak it up, knowing we may never meet again. Occasionally that person is available for longer and the reality creeps up that they are unique, special in their ability to influence positivity. Tim Henney is the latter. I met Tim many years ago in a workout class and we hit it off pretty quickly, maybe it was because I admired his immediate friendship network, maybe it was his ability to laugh in the face of a difficult workout. I didn’t know it then but Tim was one of those people.
