AS I SEE IT
You are all to be congratulated for dealing with road construction in Midvale and surrounding communities. Road construction and repair can only be accomplished when the temperature is 60 degrees or above, which is why your life has been full of cones and detours. Because of our warm spring and summer, we have accomplished a great deal. As we have improved streets and gutters, we have installed or repaired 34 handicap ramps. The following streets have been milled and overlaid with new surfaces: South Union Avenue, Angie Circle, Perrine Drive, Ashbrook Circle, 100 East, Lois Circle, 7500 South between 700 E. and Lincoln Street, Pioneer Street between Center and Wasatch, 8360 South, Center Street between Holden and Oak Street, 180 West and 7300 South, Greenwood Circle and Forbush Avenue, Main Street south of Center Street, 7615 South, and 220 East. This work is part of a three-year road improvement program. Next year there will continue to be improvements on city streets as well as I15 and I215 as UDOT moves forward with those scheduled improvements. We’d like to thank the contractors for working closely with neighborhoods during the construction of these streets.
As the weather cools and we begin having snow storms, please remember that overnight parking on city streets is prohibited due to snow removal efforts. The Midvale Municipal Code states “It is unlawful for the driver of any vehicle to park a motor vehicle on any street in the municipality between the first day of November of each year and the first day of March of the following year, for a period of time longer than three minutes when loading or unloading passengers and for a period of time longer than thirty minutes when loading, unloading or delivering property between the hours of one a.m. and six a.m. on all streets within the city.” For the safety of the public walking on the sidewalks, it is also very important for residents to remove snow from in front of their homes or businesses within 24 hours after a storm has stopped.
Public works will be passing out leaf bags again this year to residents. Please place the bag(s) of leaves at your curb prior to 7:00 a.m. on Monday, November 13th and/or Monday, November 20th to be picked up by Ace disposal. Cleaning up the leaves helps keep them from entering the storm drain. You have been great in the past. Thanks for all that each of you do to make our community a great place to live and work.
We encourage everyone to attend a FREE pancake breakfast at the Midvale Senior Center on Saturday, November 11th at 9:30 a.m. At 10:45 a.m., there will be a special program in the Midvale City Cemetery at the Veteran’s Memorial Monument to honor America’s veterans and their families for the patriotism, love of country, and willingness to sacrifice to protect the freedoms we hold so dearly. Please come and enjoy a free breakfast and help us honor America’s heroes.
