November 28, 2011 Staff Report on Weekly Meetings: Week of November 21, 2011
With last week’s abbreviated holiday week (thanks to the Tom Turkey) we have few meetings to report on for the week of Nov. 21st. We did, however, spend the week deep in preparations for eating turkey, watching Utah pretend it was Easter by laying an egg, and honing our skiing skills with some early-season skiing thanks to our wonderful communities of Park City and Alta…thanks Tom, thanks Kate.
We hope all of you had plenty to be thankful for, and spent ample money on Black Friday to keep those sales tax dollars rolling in to your communities. If, however, you were not willing to get pepper-sprayed at Walmart to get your favorite Christmas item this weekend, don’t beat yourself up too badly fore today is Cyber-Monday, where you can have a pepper-spray free shopping experience (and I am sure all of you will submit your online purchase record and applicable taxes to the Tax Commission this April to ensure that sales tax money keeps flowing).
While last week was pretty quiet, this week will be fairly busy. We will have a land-use/Property Rights Coalition on Monday, hosting the SL County Conference of Mayors on Tuesday to discuss township/municipal service delivery issues and both the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) will be meeting this week with ALEC in Phoenix and NCSL in Tampa Bay.
We hope this finds you well and please immediately leave this posting and move-on to your Cyber-Monday festivities. A more detailed and pertinent weekly report will be provided for next week.
