CITY NEWS: OCTOBER 31, 2018

A bi-weekly update from Park City Municipal Corporation



A NOTE FROM MAYOR BEERMAN

As the saying goes, “if you don’t vote, the other person’s vote counts twice.” The midterm elections are next week, and I want to remind you of the importance of voting and the power you hold as a voter. Elections guide the direction of politics on a national, state, and local level and it is important that you have an impact on that direction.

I encourage you to read up on ballot initiatives and to learn about the candidates and what they stand for before casting your vote.

Remember, this election is conducted by mail – make sure to check your mailbox! All ballots must be postmarked by Monday, November 5 or dropped off in person at one of the following locations:

  • Coalville City Hall, 10 S. Main Street
  • Kamas Services Building, 110 N. Main Street
  • Park City Municipal Building, 445 Marsac Avenue
  • Sheldon Richins Building, 1885 W. Ute Boulevard
  • Fresh Market (Jeremy Ranch), 3151 W. Kilby Road

Ballots may be dropped off at Marsac from 7:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. on Election Day, November 6.

One of the beautiful parts of a democracy is that all votes are valued equally regardless of who they’re coming from. So get involved, get out, and cast your vote because it counts!

-Mayor Andy
