What a wonderful spring this is shaping up to be! The sun is shining and people are out walking and getting ready to plant their gardens. Our neighborhoods are abuzz with activity and sounds of residents aerating, mowing, trimming, and spring cleaning.
The annual Earth Day Collection Event will be held Saturday, April 25th, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Taylorsville City Hall. This is a great opportunity to bring waste, recycling, green waste, glass recycling, documents to be shredded, furniture and clothing donations to Deseret Industries, prescriptions medications, electronic waste, and household hazardous waste. This event will not replace the Wasatch Front Waste & Recycling 2015 area clean up neighborhood dumpsters that are scheduled in Taylorsville July 2nd – July 31st. All residents who live in the Wasatch Front Waste & Recycling District will be notified 2-4 weeks in advance about your specific scheduled area clean-up day. I would encourage everyone to take care of the world we live in, make recycling a habit, take time to clean up and help others in doing the same.
Taylorsville Park Projects are well underway with the next phase at Labrum Park to include landscaping improvements and construction of the playground. Bennion Park has the concrete pad poured that will soon have a pavilion with 2 picnic tables and a pavilion to compliment the playground additions from earlier this year. In addition, activity has started at Millrace Park for the addition of two pickleball courts that should be ready for use by late June. These steps and improvements are all part of the commitment I have made to upgrade our parks.
I want to thank all the organizations, committees, and individuals who donate their time and efforts to improving our community areas. Thank you to each one of you.
