At the March 21 work session of the City Council, Members considered the Mayor’s recommendations for federal grant funding.
During the discussion, the Council also indicated its support for finding $30,000 for the Rape Recovery Center through the City’s annual budget process, since federal grant funds were not available for the organization.
The Rape Recovery Center is an important local nonprofit that has a strong history of supporting victims of sexual assault.
Through its Public Utilities dedicated watershed protection fund, Salt Lake City will contribute $1.5 million toward the purchase and preservation of Bonanza Flat – a 1,350-acre tract of popular recreation space and a critical source of Salt Lake City’s drinking water supply.
The City Council and Mayor Jackie Biskupski have approved a joint resolution in support of efforts behind the purchase of the Wasatch County property, which would conserve the popular recreation spot and protect it from commercial development. The resolution was approved during the Formal Council Meeting on March 21. Read more
