Dear Sandy Resident,

As I enter my second year as your Mayor, I want to express my gratitude for the honor and privilege of serving as the Mayor of Sandy City.

I am looking forward to furthering our civic pride and nding new ways for you to be involved in key city decisions that will shape our future.

One of my main priorities for this year is securing funding for three important capital projects for the city: the construction of a new main re station (Fire Station 31), the completion of the Public Works building for the city eet, garage, and snow plows, and the rebuilding or renovation of the Alta Canyon Sports Center.

Public safety is of the utmost importance in Sandy City, and I am proud to lead a city that supports our police and re departments. In addition to our rst responders, we are fortunate to have dedicated city employees who provide exceptional service to our residents. I have been impressed by the many residents who have reached out to express their support and appreciation for these hardworking employees.

Sandy Business Connect

Sandy’s Economic Development Department has created a vision to develop a web presence and business communication and development ecosystem to help businesses of all shapes and sizes by providing them with the resources and connections they need to be successful. Additionally, it’s the goal of Sandy City and more speci cally, the Economic Development Department to more deeply highlight the businesses that cultivate the community of Sandy.

Accordingly, this vision led to the creation of Sandy’s new business communication and development program, Business Connect, which envisions a one-stop-shop for Sandy’s business community.

e rst phase of Business Connect has recently been launched. is includes a website located at businesshighlights and Instagram and Facebook social media pages to highlight Sandy businesses and showcase the unique products and services they provide. Additionally, these resources provide Sandy residents the opportunity to discover everything the Sandy business community has to o er. is is only the beginning for Sandy’s Business Connect Program. In the coming months, there are plans to launch a full Business Connect website to truly provide a one-stop, Sandy business hub which will include business resource information, networking and business opportunities, on-going business highlights, and development updates. Stay tuned for more to come….

Snow Removal Reminders Christmas Tree Recycling Cardboard Recycling

Sandy City and Waste Management would like to make it easier for residents to recycle their cardboard packaging throughout the year and especially now during the holiday season. To help, we have placed cardboard dumpsters at the following location for residents:

• Sandy City Public Works

8775 S. 700 W. Sandy, UT 84070


Storm Mountain Park 11400 S. 1000 E.

Bell Canyon Park 11400 S. 1700 E.

Flat Iron Mesa Park 8600 S. 1700 E. (Lower west parking lot)

Highpoint Park 7800 S. 1000 E.

Crescent Park 11000 S. 230 E.

Wild ower Park 9939 S. Wild ower Road

When inclement winter weather hits, the Public Works Department is hard at work clearing roads for safer travel. eir priority is to make all main arterial roads passable for public safety, schools, and re stations. If the snow continues to fall, the city’s goal is to keep the main roads clear. In such instances, it is unlikely that residential roads will be reached immediately because main roads must be repeatedly plowed. It is important for residents to keep cars and debris out of the road so that snowplows and other maintenance vehicles can work with little or no interruptions.

As residents of Sandy City, each property owner plays a role in helping to keep roads and sidewalks free of snow and ice. Listed below are reminders for all residents: e following actions are not allowed:

• Blowing or pushing snow into any city street.

• Parking on city streets during a snowstorm or during the 24 hours after the end of the storm. (Depending on the situation, police o cers are authorized to either cite residents or have vehicles towed if they are not in compliance with any ordinance).

Homeowner Responsibilities

• Removing the snow in front of your mailbox and re hydrants once plows have been through the neighborhood.

• Clearing snow from sidewalks in front of your home within 24 hours of a storm.

For questions regarding snow removal, please call:

Streets - Public Works: (801) 568-2999

Private Sidewalks - Code Enforcement: (801) 568-7254

Parking Issues - Police Dispatch: (801) 799-3000

City buildings, trails, and parking lots - Parks and Recreation: (801) 568-2900

During a snowstorm, if you would like to see the locations for the Sandy City snowplows, please go to

Parks & Cemetery Shop 9120 S. 700 E.

Please ensure that all lights, ornaments, tinsel, and garland are removed from the trees as well as stands. Trees that have been ocked should not be taken to any of these locations since they are not recyclable. Flocked trees can be cut into pieces and placed in your waste container. Finally, bulk waste, garbage, yard waste, and commercial dumping of trees are not acceptable. If you have any questions, call Public Works at (801) 568-2999 or Parks and Recreation at (801) 568-2900.

Open Monday–Friday, from 7 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

e cardboard bin is located inside the Maintenance Entrance gate on the north end of the property on the west side of the salt storage building. (See the map using the web link below). If you have problems locating the bins, please check in at the o ce.

e Fleet Division plays a major role in enabling other departments to deliver services to the citizens of Sandy City. Fleet consists of 625 assets and employs 12 people who take great pride in their work. e Fleet team consists of 8 technicians, 2 part-time couriers, 1 eet administrative assistant and 1 eet manager. For management and procurement of repair parts, Fleet has a contract with NAPA through their Integrated Business Solutions (IBS). As part of this contract, NAPA has 1 full-time employee assigned to Sandy City to be the point of contact for the technicians when they are repairing vehicles and equipment.

Sandy City owns and maintains everything from lawn mowers to large re apparatuses. Fleet is responsible for the purchase, disposal, maintenance, registration, parts, and fuel cards for all assets. e city has an annual operations and maintenance budget of $3.1 million and an annual replacement budget of $4.2 million for vehicles and equipment which have passed their service life.

When it comes to replacement, many factors determine when a vehicle has served its life and is due for replacement. Sandy uses a eet management information system called RTA, which helps the city track total cost of ownership and operation for each Fleet asset. RTA records fuel usage, tracks annual inspections, and keeps record of every repair including parts and labor. All the information combined helps us determine life cycle cost, per mile cost and repair order cost. We use this information to bill each department for repairs on their vehicles. To determine if a vehicle is due for replacement, we run a report that scores each vehicle based on a combination of maintenance costs, down time, age, mileage, replacement cost, and overall condition.

Fleet has installed GeoTab telematics and GPS devices in most city vehicles. is provides web-based analytics to help managers and supervisors check on the location and status of their vehicles. e information can help users gain better insights as to how assets are being used. ese devices can also report seatbelt usage, idling time, speeding and harsh driving so that drivers can be coached to make improvements. In addition, these devices can report vehicle performance telematics which Fleet can use to monitor various electronic vehicle systems and identify problems.

Fleet also has an automated lubricant analysis machine that delivers comprehensive test results for engine and gear box oils, as well as hydraulic, power steering, and transmission uids. e machine analyzes all lubricant properties for wear debris and suspended contaminants. is allows technicians to catch potential failures before they become catastrophic as well as extend the life of lubricants, thus saving money on frequent oil changes.

As far as vehicle technology, Fleet has started ordering vehicles with lane departure, blind-spot alerts, Blind Spot Information Systems (BLIS), and collision assistance that actively brake the vehicle in the event of possible vehicle or pedestrian collision.

Overall, Fleet Division employees take great pride in helping our fellow employees do their jobs, by answering operational and vehicle performance questions along with repairing and maintaining their vehicles and equipment.

e Sandy Arts Guild is so excited to present their winter comedy, Steel Magnolias, running Jan. 27 to Feb. 11, 2023.

If you loved the star-studded lm Steel Magnolias with Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Dolly Parton and others - the movie was based on this play - you won’t want to miss it! e action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a “good ole boy.”

Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy in the second act as Shelby risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. e sudden realization of their mortality a ects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

Come on down to Truvy’s salon before the show ends February 11th! We’d love to see you!

Sandy City Code Enforcement Corner Conservation Reminder

Sandy City Code Enforcement would like to remind residents of our ordinance related to waste receptacles (trash cans). e ordinance can be found in Title 19, Property Maintenance, of the Sandy City Code Section (see below). Code Enforcement responds to numerous complaints throughout the year related to this ordinance. Violations include improper placement of trash cans, leaving rubbish/trash outside the trash cans and putting the trash can out too early. We also respond to residents who don’t remove their trash cans from the public right-of-way. Residents are encouraged to read and follow the ordinance. It is our hope to make Sandy City a clean place to live.

Sec. 19-4-3. - Waste Receptacles.

(a) Every owner, tenant or occupant of any premises where garbage is created shall provide upon such premises, in a suitable place, one or more durable receptacles, or other durable receptacles as may be provided by the City for automated collection service, with tight tting cover, for receiving and holding all garbage created upon such premises between the times of collection and removal. Every owner, tenant, or occupant of any premises where rubbish is created shall, where necessary, in addition to the garbage receptacle, provide upon such premises, in a suitable place, one or more receptacles or depositories to contain all rubbish which may accumulate upon such premises between removals. All subscribers for service, as herein provided, shall at all times locate such receptacles at places, so as to be readily accessible for removing and emptying the same, but they shall not be placed within the limits of any street or alley within the corporate limits of Sandy City, or anywhere so as to constitute a nuisance.

(b) All garbage and rubbish receptacles shall be kept in a clean and sanitary condition by the owner or person using the same, and garbage receptacles shall be kept tightly-covered at all times except when garbage is being deposited therein or removed therefrom, and shall at all times be protected against the access by ies to the contents thereof.

(c) All garbage and rubbish receptacles shall not be stored within the front yard setback of a home, or in the case of corner lots, within the front and side setbacks adjacent to public streets, except during the time period set aside for garbage collection.

For questions concerning trash cans, please contact our Code Enforcement division at (801) 568-7254. For additional information or to access the City Code, please visit the City’s online Code by scanning the following QR code:
