City Hall Seminar
Our next seminar will be on Tuesday, May 5th at 6:00. We welcome Lacey McFarland as our presenter on QPR. Due to the extenuating  circumstances, the seminar will be held electronically. Registration at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/question-persuade-refer-qpr-virtual-presentation-tickets-101735983064 is required to attend.

Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) is a one-hour evidence based suicide prevention training that teaches three steps anyone can learn to help   prevent suicide. During the training participants will learn myths and facts about suicide, how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, how to offer hope and how to get help and save a life. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

Earthquake Damage Report
As a result of the Magna Earthquake, we have been asked to provide damage assessment estimates to the State and FEMA.

Please visit https://arcg.is/0LSmzj and fill out this simple survey if you have observed any physical damage to your property (residential or  commercial business) which was caused by the Magna Earthquake on March 18, 2020. If you haven’t observed any damage, no need to fill out the survey. There is a 30-day window in which to report damage. Reports must be submitted before April 17th. Please contact our emergency  manager, Kim Dixon kimd@westhavencity.com if you have questions.

COVID-19 Updates
For the most up-to-date information on the pandemic, please check our website westhavencity.com frequently. There is a quick link on the home page that will go straight to Public Health Information. There are links for information about the virus, links for business owner resources, and   information about cancelations and closures in the City. Daily updates from the State of Utah and other partners are shared on social media:

Facebook: West Haven City

These are the most recent updates:

We have resumed public meetings. Until further notice, meetings will be held electronically. Information for joining the meetings will be included on the public notices.

Our public playgrounds, pickleball courts, and tennis courts have been closed until further notice. Parks are open, but we remind the public to practice social distancing. There should be at least 6’ between individuals. Porta potties at our parks were removed due to toilet paper theft. Restrooms are usually open mid-April, but will not be opened this spring until the risk of COVID-19 spread is past.

Weber County Sheriff’s Office has made some adjustments to combat the recent spike in vehicle burglaries. School resource officers have been temporarily reassigned to the patrol division. This adds an additional 8 deputies for focused patrol on areas that have been targeted. They would like to remind the public to lock their vehicles. Suspects are very rarely using forced entry.

We have created a business registry on our website. We would like to let the public know what West Haven businesses are doing to stay open during a time when there are so many restrictions – adjusted hours, pick up or delivery service, special pricing, etc. Please call Amy at 385-389-2690 to add your business’s information.

West Haven Days
At West Haven City, we are taking a proactive approach to the COVID-19 situation. We are not “blanket canceling” events. We want to provide hope and potential for future activities. We fully plan to have West Haven Days 2020 until something prohibits that.

When the time comes that life resumes for us at a more normal pace (such as availability of toilet paper) we want to be able to

provide a great kickoff to a renewed state of life! Sooo…we are still planning strategically.

West Haven Days is scheduled for June 25-27.

For information on being a vendor or a sponsor, please contact Brock 801-430-1517

Trail Grant
We recently received a grant to complete the Hooper Slough trail from 4000 South to 5100 West. We are committed to complete the trail along the slough as part of the 4700 West widening project in the summer of 2021. The $200K grant will pay for the extension from Stonefield Park to 5100 West.

Stay Home, Stay Safe!

Mayor Sharon Bolos
