Recycle Utah continues to look for a new home and it’s likely it’ll move to a location somewhere in the County.  Their current location on Woodbine Way is part of the newly established Bonanza Arts and Cultural District.   Carolyn Murray has this: 

The South Summit School Board passed a resolution to hold a bond election this November.

The bond amount is for $58.65 million, which means, if the bond is approved taxes will go up about $96 dollars a year for every $100,000 of taxable home value.

The last time South Summit held a general obligation bond was in 1988, which was the same year that the district’s current Superintendent Shad Sorenson graduated from South Summit High School.
