Mayor's Corner 08/18/2016

Dear Friends: 
I double-dog-dare you to check out a pair of events happening in Richfield the second weekend in September!
 
The Sevier Valley Center is playing host to Utah’s Celebration of Freedom and Western Lifestyle.  This event is scheduled to coincide with the commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our nation.  Organizers promise a weekend that will stir your heart and stimulate your brain.  I even have a part in it, and I’m really having fun preparing my class.

Dear Friends: 

 We are in the process of having all of our city council minutes, planning commission minutes and other important documents digitized by the State Archivist’s Office.  When completed, we’ll make these records available to the public at www.richfieldcity.com.
 
In looking at planning commission minutes of yesteryear, I thought about the people who made up those important boards.  They were common, everyday citizens who had been asked to serve their city and stepped up to do just that. These men and women spent hundreds of hours researching and discussing ordinances, and then applied their knowledge and common sense in directing the growth of our community.

Dear Friends:

Dogs, Dogs, Dogs.  I stood on my porch 8 years ago with two mixed breed puppies.  I wasn’t sure how She Who Shall Not Be Named would react.  Baby animals are irresistible. Holding them up together had the desired effect.
 
SWSNBN grew up with dogs as working, outside critters.  Training the puppies to do their thing outside was the first thing that steam-rolled into her mind.  Myriad other details were important, including who’s going to tend these cuties when we are out of town?
 
But neither of us thought of our responsibility to license the puppies once they reached six months old.  Within two weeks, I had already learned that two puppies equal double trouble. I found a friend whose son was in the hospital and needed cheering up. Later I learned that the pup I gave him had dug holes in their yard deep enough to bury a Mac Truck.
 
Our little Dolly didn’t dig and she loves us unconditionally. We feed her top notch food; have her groomed four times a year and she controls both our lives.  In return she wags her tail and leaves little “toosie rolls” on the back lawn. Read more ...
