MAYOR’S MESSAGE The Holladay Police Department, in an initiative lead by Lt. Tyler Ackerman, recently initiated a new method of patrolling our community aptly titled “Proactive Policing”. He divided the city into five zones, each containing three sub-sections. This leaves us with 15 total sub-sections, which works well because we also have 15 patrol officers assigned to the Holladay Precinct. The five zones mirror our council districts. You can view the three sub-sections of your district by visiting the city webpage at Patrol officers are assigned their own sub-section. They are HOLLADAY CITY required to patrol the streets in their assigned area during their shift. This 4A #2 MATT DURHAM will help ensure we have marked 2C 2A #4 DREW police cars patrolling every street in 2B QUINN 4B the city on a consistent basis. We also assigned detectives to provide 1B 4C oversight. As zone supervisors they will be responsible for three #1 SABRINA 1A PETERSEN 3A patrol officers in their respective 1C zones. This will ensure each zone is properly monitored. #3 PAUL FOTHERINGHAM If we receive any information 3B 5B or a complaint of criminal activity #5 DANIEL GIBBONS 3C within the city, the information will be forwarded to the supervising 5C 5A detective of that zone. The detective will follow-up on that case and will coordinate information with the assigned area patrol officer. After the assigned detective successfully investigates and resolves the issue, they will report back to the original complainant with their findings. The main objective in this new method of policing is comprehensive coverage of the city. We hope you notice increased patrol presence in your neighborhoods. We would love to receive feedback regarding this new initiative. Feel free to contact your Council Representative or our Police Chief if you have questions, comments, or concerns. As always, we appreciate your feedback! —Rob Dahle, Mayor Legend

Impacts of Dumping Debris Anything stored on streambanks will eventually smother and kill existing riparian vegetation, whether it is trash or green waste such as grass clippings, branch prunings, and leaf piles. Loss of riparian plants degrades wildlife habitat and accelerates bank erosion when there are no longer plant roots helping to stabilize the banks. Serious problems also arise when debris gets into the stream. Grass clippings, tree branches, construction materials, etc. block culvert openings and get hung up on bridges. This can cause flooding and property damage for you and/or your downstream neighbors. In addition, excess amounts of organic matter (grass, leaves, etc.) depletes dissolved oxygen in water because organic matter uses oxygen as it decomposes. This can have serious impacts on fish, insects and other aquatic life that need oxygen to survive.

Hands Only CPR By Capt. Dan Brown Did you know that 70% percent of all cardiac arrests happen in the home? According to the American Heart Association, about 90% of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. On top of that, more than 38% of cardiac arrests are witnessed by a layperson. Why is this important? After calling 911, it can take 5-7 minutes for an ambulance to arrive, and for every 1 minute that CPR isn’t provided on a person having a cardiac arrest, the chances for survival for the victim decreases 7% to 10%. Many people are reluctant to do CPR because they aren’t formally trained, doubt their ability to do it, and worry they will injure the patient, but you CAN help improve survivability by offering “Hands Only CPR.” There are only two steps: If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse and is non-responsive, 1. Call 9-1-1; and 2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the disco song “Stayin’ Alive.” Visit (or for Spanish resources) to watch a one-minute training video. If you have any questions about CPR, please feel free to contact me at Thanks for reading and stay safe, Holladay!

HOWL-O-WEEN Pet Safety Tips Salt Lake County Animal Services Halloween can be a lot of fun for humans but pets may not appreciate the costumes and candy. Protect your pets from Halloween dangers with these tips! 1. Keep candy out of reach. All forms of chocolate and the artificial sweetener can be poisonous to dogs & cats. Call your emergency vet if your pet has eaten either. 2. Keep pets confined and away from the door. Dogs may be likely to dart out the door, or become anxious with trick-or-treaters in costumes and yelling for candy. Put them in a crate or a backroom and keep everyone safe. 3. Close the blinds or drapes, disconnect doorbells. If your dog reacts every time someone walks by or rings the doorbell close the drapes and disconnect the doorbell. 4. Keep outdoor pets inside before and after Halloween. Keep dogs and cats indoors to prevent them from being injured, stolen, or poisoned as part of a Halloween prank.

5. Don’t approach dogs while in costume. Even if you know the dog, a strange costume or mask can frighten them. They may not recognize you in costume. If a dog escapes a house or yard and runs up to you, tell your child to stand like a tree, and wait for the owner to grab the dog. 6. Test out pet costumes before. Make sure the costume isn’t causing them distress, or giving them an allergic reaction. It shouldn’t restrict their movement, ability to breath, bark or meow. 7. Leave them at home. It may be best with all the distractions to leave your pet at home while trick-or-treating. Take them for a walk earlier in the day before the ghosts and goblins come out for the night to spook them. Find a lost pet? Call Dispatch 801-840-4000. Need to get your pet microchipped? Don’t forget all pets in Salt Lake County can receive a free microchip at our location. Email for more info or visit

D I D Y O U K N O W. . . Holladay City now permits Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) throughout the City. Due to new Utah law, the City now permits internal and external ADUs in our residential zones. As a reminder, ADUs are self-contained living spaces usually in basements and above garages. ADUs are also known as mother-in-law apartments, basement apartments, secondary dwelling units, granny flats, or carriage houses. They are typically a more affordable housing option and appeal to many socioeconomic walks of life. Importantly, the City’s new ordinance places some restrictions on ADUs. For example, ADUs are not permitted to be short-term rentals and ADUs must be licensed annually if they are being rented. Want to learn more? Visit the City’s website at
