Mayor's Message


West Haven Days
We had another fantastic celebration in June. The events were well attended. It was fun to get to know our grand marshals– John Peterson, Jean Read, and Bessie Peterson. These three are certainly treasures in our city. Thanks to all volunteers on our events committee, our youth council members, and their  advisers. Also, Brock Randall, and Randy & Colleen Hunter spent countless hours before, during, and after the event to make it a success. Thanks to our staff, our deputies, and our firefighters for their support. Most of all, thank you to our amazing residents who support West Haven Days every year! You are the reason this celebration is so successful.

2019-20 Budget
The 2019-20 budget was adopted on June 19th. It is available on under the Financial Department, including supporting documents. A link to the State Transparency web site is also available there. Thanks to those who attended the public hearing to have questions answered and express their opinions.

City Pride, City Wide
We encourage our City Pride, City Wide program. If you would like to nominate a resident who takes particularly great pride in their yard, please email their name and address to  We would also like to spotlight you and your group on Facebook for cleanup projects you do on public property. You can email before and after photos to the above address as well.

We currently have a community service project scheduled for July 10th from 5-10 PM. Information can be found on by searching West Haven City. Join us in taking pride in our beautiful city. City Pride, City Wide!

City Events
Our annual RMPRA rodeo is scheduled for July 19th and 20th.

Safe Trade Zone
A safe trade zone, or internet exchange location, is a place where online buyers and sellers meet. We have created a safe trade zone in the north parking lot at the Sports Park. This  location is under 24-hour video and audio surveillance.  Purchasing of items through the  internet has increased over recent years. Unfortunately, some of these transactions have turned into scams, robberies, or worse. We have provided a safe place for making  transactions. This zone is also beneficial for child custody and custodial property  exchanges.

Andrew Reyna was appointed to the Planning Commission by unanimous consent. Andrew fills a vacancy left by Chair Ken Banta. Ken offered his resignation due to work commitments. The Planning Commission elected Darin Deem as the new Chair.

Shanda Reney has been the Recorder for West Haven for nine years. She has recently resigned to take the opportunity to be at home with her children. She has been a tremendous asset to the City and will be greatly missed. Emily Green, our current Deputy Recorder, has been selected to fill the position. She has been in her current position four years and we are fortunate to have her.
