2023 – State of the City Address

STATE OF THE CITY ADDRESS

12/29/23

 

Citizens of Honeyville,

 

I am honored to serve you as the Mayor of Honeyville and hope my time of service helps our community to accomplish the many goals we have set out to achieve.

 

During 2023 we held several fun events to allow us to gather together as a community.  Those activities were:  The Easter Egg Hunt, 4th of July Activities and the Trunk or Treat.  We look forward to hosting those events again in 2024 and hope you will join us.

 

In 2023 we had a successful Summer Clean-Up where the City provided dumpsters to assist citizens in cleaning up their yards.  We plan to do this again in 2024.  Be watching for those dates closer to the spring and summer months.

 

Throughout 2023 the City started working on updating our General Plan as well.  This has been a huge undertaking.  We appreciate everyone who offered input and feedback.  We are optimistic that this will be completed in early 2024.

 

Also, in 2023 the City accomplished many important Water Projects.  The projects that were completed or that are still in progress are as follows: 

  • The City replaced a lead waterline that was leaking on the South end of town.
  • The City became compliant with the Utah Drinking Water regulations to monitor the City’s water system. During the course of this project, we were able to save the City roughly $60,000.00 according to our engineered estimate.  This was done by the City’s administration investigating other alternatives that could be used to meet the requirements.
  • The City has also started working on identifying lead pipes used in our water system per the new Federal Government Mandate. We will continue to work on this during 2024.
  • The City submitted a Water Conservation Plan to the State of Utah. We are waiting for approval of this plan from the State.
  • In 2024 the City will present a Water Capital Facilities Plan; we encourage feedback from the community when that is presented. We hope to present this to the public in the spring.

 

As we bring 2023 to a close I want to express gratitude for the wonderful community we live in.  We hope 2024 will be a great year for everyone.

 

Respectfully,

Mayor Bruce Nelson
