City Hall Seminar
Thank you to all who attended our May seminar by Fight the New Drug. If you were not able to come, please check out their web site fightthenewdrug.org. Also, as a reminder, the teenage attendees should take the follow up survey found on our Facebook event page.
Arbor Day was a huge success! Thank you to Josh Osterhaut for his Eagle Scout project. He planned and prepared for this event and we had several groups in attendance. Members of the West Haven Junior Posse, West Haven Youth Council, and many from Josh’s troop were in attendance. We had 55 people come and we planted 25 trees in the Sports Park. Also, thanks to Kim Hunter for his lesson in tree planting.
West Haven Days is June 8th and 21st-23rd. Please plan now to attend. We have numerous great events with something for everyone. Details follow in this newsletter.
At the end of the school year, we will begin work on improvements to the intersection at 3900 West & 4300 South. We will be widening the intersection and extending the sidewalk on 3875 West for the safety of students who attend West Haven Elementary.
City Pride, City Wide
Springtime means it is time to reactivate our City Pride, City Wide program. We kicked it off again with our third annual Dumpster Days. We had 6 dumpsters filled with your junk. It was a great kick start to spring clean up.
We encourage residents throughout our city to keep their property well maintained. Our crews do all they can to clean parks, trails, and other public places. But there is so much we can do as citizens. We would love to give you a shout out on Facebook for cleanup projects you do – on your property or on public property. Please email before and after photos to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add them to our collection. Join us in taking pride in beautiful West Haven. City Pride, City Wide!
Congratulations to Lacy Richards on her appointment to the City Council. Summer Palmer, who has served since January 2016, offered her resignation to accept a promotion at Clearfield City. She has done a tremendous job and has represented the residents well. We are sad to lose her, but excited for her new opportunity.
In our council meeting on April 18th, seven applicants were interviewed for the position. They were all great candidates and it was a difficult decision. Thank you to those who applied.
Lacy has been serving as our Planning Commission Chair and has done a phenomenal job there. She will be missed in that capacity. But we are looking forward to working with her in a new role.
Welcome to RaeAnn Lindholm! She was recently hired as a part time Code Enforcement Officer.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one of our founding fathers, Bob Holmes. Bob and his wife, Dorothy, were instrumental in the incorporation of West Haven City. Bob was elected as the first Mayor. When Bob finished his term as Mayor, he served as the chairman of the West Haven Special Services District. Our deepest sympathy is extended to his family at this time.
Mayor Sharon Bolos
