    I wish you could make it so I could copy and paste text out of your blog. I’ve been having to hand-type or take a screenshot of this post every spring and fall for my neighborhood. Just a suggestion. Thanks!

      I’m not sure why you aren’t able to copy and paste the text.

        We figured it out! For some reason you can’t copy the text in Firefox, but you can in Chrome, so I’m all set. Thanks!

      wanted to send it to my whole ward – can we please change it so we can copy to send out??? simple thing

      1. Maren

        If you can open in another browser (Chrome for example) you should be able to copy and paste it. You’re right though, it’s an easy fix for the web developer… (hint, hint)

    I want to thank the traffic engineers for extending the time crossing East to West at 500 No & Freedom Blvd for pedestrian traffic. It is much safer for us, thank you again.

    My son has been pruning trees in our yard for a couple of months now. I got him to load them up on a trailer and we took them to the utah park this past weekend….first they wanted id, which we had, then they told us that we should have taken our load to the east bay facility….it would be good to post these rules ahead of time so that people don’t give up on the big yard clean up time….I assume that we will not be able to utilize other neighborhoods dumpsters for the things we weren’t able to haul on our weekend? We started with the branches but have other things that need to disappear…
