ULCT expresses gratitude to all those who sacrificed their time, listened to their neighbors, and sought to make their communities better by running for mayor or city council in 2011.
For those who came up short yesterday, we salute your effort and urge you to stay involved in your community. For those who emerged victorious, ULCT congratulates you and looks forward to working with you. Please utilize ULCT as a resource as you either begin or continue your service as an elected official. We recommend that all local elected officials attend the ULCT Newly Elected Trainings in December, January, or February. Regardless of if being a council member is a new adventure or if you want to sharpen your skills and knowledge, our Newly Elected Trainings will be useful to you. They will be held:
Saturday, December 3, Logan City Hall
Saturday, December 17, Cedar City Hall
Saturday, January 7, Orem City Hall
Saturday, February 4, Ephraim City Hall
Saturday, February 11, Salt Lake City and County Building
Also, please watch for the updated version of the “Powers and Duties Handbook,” coming to a ULCT bookstore near you soon. Powers and Duties covers every local government topic from budgets to ethics, from the Open and Public Meetings Act to impact fees, and from land use to business licenses. It is a must read for every local government official (and, in our humble opinion, everyone else in Utah too)!
Again, congratulations to the new or continuing elected officials and thank you to all those who ran for public office in 2011.
