If you didn’t get to the City Services Fair before it got rained out, here’s some of what you missed:
Councilmembers Beck, Cabanilla, and Winterton took down the balloon arch before it became a hazard in the wind. It wasn’t quite as bad as my first City Services Fair two years ago. Since then, we’ve moved the date up to avoid bad weather. I guess we learned who’s in control. Not us. We at least got a couple […]
If you didn’t go last year, here’s what you missed.
It’s more than coincidental that Provo residents are enjoying reasonable power rates at a time when energy costs across the nation are soaring and families struggle to meet their bills. Because visionary citizens more than 72 years ago recognized the value in providing municipal power with a city-owned utility, Provo has not only been able […]

Brent Taylor, Kerry Ashby, Tyler Ashby, and Derek Ashby On January 4, 2012, Provo City issued its 30,000th building permit. The recipient of the permit was Kerry Ashby. Kerry was awarded a new 32 oz. hammer and a Provo City hat by building inspector Brent Taylor. Congratulations, Kerry!

We’re also giving away a $250 Frontier Airlines ticket voucher, a reconditioned bike, recreation facility passes, and more. While you’re there, come […]
April turned out to be cold and wet, increasing the risk of significant runoff flows, but at least the forecast for the next week is favorable. While some of the low elevation snow pack should start melting, we don’t expect to see any significant runoff in the channels through Provo City until at least next […]
In this month’s city newsletter, I talk about Frontier Airlines and the benefits of scheduled service at the Provo Municipal Airport. It’s great for economic development in our area, and it’s great for local travelers. Flying out of Provo could save residents two or more hours in freeway travel and wait time. It will also […]
