Water district begins "No Flush" Campaign

The Snyderville Basin Water Reclamation District would like to remind everyone not to flush prescription and over the counter medicines down the toilet. These items can enter the local environment and harm fish and wildlife.

As an alternative, take your expired or unused prescription and over the counter medicines to Recycle Utah’s center on Oct. 4 from 9 to 11 a.m.

Mobile café busted at The Canyons

Summit County sheriff officers scared off a red Volkswagen selling food near The Canyons earlier this month. The Summit County Health Department advised the sheriff’s office that they did not have a business license, but had no prior experience with the situation.

The response to the call only lasted 17 minutes and no apparent citations were given, said Detective Josh Wall.
