On Thursday, the Helper City Council spoke about a variety of topics at its regularly scheduled meeting.
Council members discussed flooding to approximately 19 homes from Bryner Street to Martin Road during temperature and pressure testing on valves, which caused pressure valves in water heaters to pop and flood some homes. The claims department from Helper City’s insurance company will be in contact with homeowners who received damage to their homes.
Also at the meeting, the council members agreed to bring the National Guard troops in to Helper over the next six months for their regular training at a few of the city’s buildings.
Finally, the council discussed paving the Hill Street Trail, which is 4,000 feet long and eight feet wide. The city has received money from the health department that can be used to fix trails as a way to promote health. If the council receives a grant for the trail to be paved, they will further discuss the possibility of trail improvements.
The next Helper City Council meeting will be on Nov 6 at 6 p.m.
