Solar Discussion

Tuesday night the municipal council voted to take another look at the solar fee issue. I’m not sure if I remember an issue that has had so much agreement about the goals and so much disagreement about how to reach them.

Shed Fire

If you saw smoke in the sky this morning coming from the southwest part of our city, it wasn’t anyone sending signals to distant lands. Our fire crew responded to a call on a shed fire on 600 South near 1200 West. Thank goodness no one was injured and no additional damage was reported.
