At the city council meeting last Wednesday, the council voted unanimously to support the Bus Rapid Transit line going from Murray (IMC) up 4700 South to the Salt Lake Community College.
The council also unanimously approved its withdrawal of a notice to withdraw from Salt Lake Valley Emergency Communications Center. On the last day of 2012, the council gave a notice of withdrawal, in case other cities were also withdrawing. Taylorsville is fully committed to VECC and participation in the center.
During citizen comment time at the council meeting, Rhonda Isaksen presented the council, and specifically Councilmember Burgess with a large, poster-board card. The card thanked the council and Councilmember Burgess for funding the block walls on 4100 South, which improved the aesthetics and safety for residents bordering 4100 South. It was signed by many neighbors in the area.
The highlight of the council meeting was a presentation to recognize any Eagle Scouts who did their final Eagle project for the city. Bry Davis, President Elect of the Great Salt Lake
Council, thanked elected officials and the scouts present for their efforts. Mayor Rechtenbach cited
the high caliber of youth in Taylorsville and congratulated the Eagle Scouts on
their accomplishments. Tokens were given to each of the Eagle Scouts.
