To start off the Wednesday evening Price City Council meeting, Price Mayor Mike Kourianos went over some reminders for the Halloween season. He urged citizens to keep safety in mind as people are walking around town while trick-or-treating.
“Watch the sidewalks and the crosswalks while driving,” stated Kourianos.
He then spoke about checking children’s candy when they bring it home. If the candy looks like it has been tampered with, throw it away, he said.
The next agenda item addressed was a request for sponsorship for the upcoming Veterans Day program. The council approved a motion to waive the fees for use of the Peace Gardens on Nov. 11. Program organizers are raising money to fund scholarships at Utah State Eastern specifically for veterans.
The fundraising event will be sponsored by Dominion Energy. Council member Rick Davis made a motion to approve the waiver of fees and council member Terry Willis seconded the motion. Burgers, chips and soda will be served with a $5 donation.
To end the meeting, councilwoman Amy Knott-Jespersen made the reminder for the community to send in their ballots and vote. Voters can mail them or bring them to the Price City Hall (185 East Main Street, Price) or the Carbon County Administration Building (751 East 100 North, Price).
