The Carbon County Chamber of Commerce gave praise to local businesses and the city of Price during its luncheon on Thursday afternoon.
To start, the chamber highlighted two businesses. Roy Nikas of Price Insurance was the first to receive praise and take the podium. Established in 1958 by Nikas’ father, the company offers personal, life/health and commercial insurance at a location not only in Price, but in Sandy as well. Price Insurance employs nearly one dozen employees, many of whom have been with the company for 30 years.
Parkdale Health & Rehab was the next business recognized as Riley Anderson took time at the microphone. The local center specializes in short-term rehabilitation after patients leave the hospital, which includes nursing and therapy services. Parkdale recently underwent an ownership change and is now managed by Cascades Healthcare, which oversees about 20 facilities throughout Utah.
Finally, Terry Willis received recognition on behalf of Price City during the luncheon. Willis took time to speak on exciting improvements that are being made to Price City, which include involvement from the recently-formed youth city council. Youth members, along with the Price City Council, city employees and volunteers, have been eagerly working on new developments for the city, some of which include a mural at the Peace Gardens and upgraded parks as well as city-wide cleanup and beautification.
To conclude the event, Castleview Hospital’s WorkPoint, a full-time occupational medicine program, was presented by coordinator Jamie Fox. WorkPoint is offered to employers seeking resources for drug screening, physicals or wellness programs. Fox explained that there are WorkPoint locations in Price and Castle Dale, and some of the services may also be brought directly to the workplace.
