A note from the mayor of San­taquin

Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Kirk Hun­saker

We just fin­ished our Or­chard Day cel­e­bra­tion and had great suc­cess. I want to thank our gen­er­ous spon­sors, ven­dors and count­less vol­un­teers. We ap­pre­ci­ated our Or­chard Days com­mit­tee and city staff. None of this would be pos­si­ble with­out them. Our cel­e­bra­tion gets big­ger ev­ery year and we look for­ward to im­prov­ing with that growth. We are ex­cited to an­nounce that we are near­ing the com­ple­tion of the re­vised Parks and Recre­ation Master Plan. We look for­ward to the fu­ture in­clud­ing new parks and recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties. As the city grows, we will in­vest in larger soc­cer fields, trails and other recre­ational op­por­tu­ni­ties to our res­i­dents as well as sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties. Our growth is phe­nom­e­nal here is San­taquin. In fact, we are one of the fastest-grow­ing cities per capita in Utah County. We is­sued 125 build­ing per­mits in 2015 and are al­ready at 97 build­ing per­mits half­way through this year. We have ex­cit­ing things planned for our com­mu­nity. We are lucky to have a city coun­cil that is ex­cited for growth and wel­comes op­por­tu­ni­ties that come our way. Our waste wa­ter treat­ment plant has been a huge suc­cess. It has helped sup­ple­ment our wa­ter sup­ply and saved us from wa­ter re­stric­tions here in San­taquin. How­ever, we al­ways rec­om­mend that our res­i­dents are wise with wa­ter us­age since we do live in the sec­ond-dri­est state in the coun­try. I have been mayor since 2013 and I am still amazed at the cit­i­zens that call San­taquin home. They are some of the best in the county and are the heart of our great city. I am so thank­ful to the city staff, po­lice de­part­ment and fire/EMS re­spon­ders that work tire­lessly to serve our cit­i­zens. San­taquin is small but strong and we an­tic­i­pate a pros­per­ous and bright fu­ture. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.san­taquin.org.
