Natural trail possible along Highland Drive

Natural trail possible on Highland Drive

The Snyderville Basin Special Recreation District Board is scheduled to meet tonight to discuss, among other things, a final plan for a new paved trail along Highland Drive.

According to Rena Jordan, executive director of the district, the final plan has been "tweaked" in recent weeks. The plan now calls for the clearing of brush, rocks and other obstacles for two to four feet along the planned trail. If used by horses or other natural-trail users, this clearing will eventually become a single-track natural-surface trail. There is not room for a regular soft-surface trail in this area.

Ask door-to-door salesmen for licenses

According to a press release from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, the county government has received a large number of reports this spring, and is expecting more this summer, about door-to-door sales people.

"As a result of the complaints, several people have been arrested and/or cited for operating a business without the correct licensing and outstanding warrants," said Det. Ron Bridge in the press release.

Door-to-door salesman may operate within the community only after obtaining the correct licensing from the Summit County Clerk’s Office, the release said. Each sales person should have photo identification clearly displayed and should provide the appropriate documentation when requested.

The county is asking every resident to ask these sales people for their correct licensing when they come to the door. If they do not have it, residents are asked to report them to the Sheriff’s Office immediately by calling 615-3500.
