Helper City Council had its first meeting of the new year on Thursday night. Council members emphasized the success of the annual Helper Light Parade. Councilman Kirk Mascaro also explained that next year Helper will celebrate the 25th year of the parade. Residents can expect to see something special to celebrate this milestone.
At the meeting, council members approved burning of woodpiles at the SR-96 Scofield junction. The burning will take a couple weeks to complete and will be done by Justin Needles free of charge.
The council approved the RAP Tax that was voted on by residents in the November election. The tax will work toward improving the recreation, arts and parks of Helper.
Finally, residents will soon be seeing ATV signs on Helper City trails. The signs will designate trails that are approved by the city for ATV use.
