Got Drugs? Got Trees?

Saturday was a busy day at City Hall. Our police department hosted a "Got Drugs?" drop off. Anyone with old prescription medications that need to be disposed off could drop them off to our police officers in the parking lot at City Hall. 

The other fun event was the "Go Green" Arbor Day planting by JetBlue Airways crewmembers and other city volunteers. 

Last Wednesday Taylorsville earned the "Tree City USA" designation. One of the requirements is to do an Arbor Day activity each year, so this was a great opportunity to celebrate the award and get the community garden at City Hall ready.

The new garden boxes were built, and over 30 trees were planted. Taylorsville residents can pay a small fee to use the Community Garden, which is the second one in the city. To reserve a space, residents can call Toni Lenning at 801-414-4192.

Special thanks to the JetBlue employees who came to help and the members of our LARP committee!
