Sunnyside City agrees to cost increase, asks for re-negotiation of safety agreement

During their regularly scheduled city council meeting, Sunnyside city officials agreed to East Carbon's price increase for continued police protection. However, the city also asked that attorneys from both cities start negotiations over other points within the next public safety contract, according to Sunnyside officials.

The newly agreed upon price for continued protection will cost Sunnyside $60,000 per year plus $2,000 for animal control with a 4 percent annual increase.

For that cost the city will retain the service of four full time officers and an animal control official from East Carbon along with a continued DARE program at the local school.

Big changes in store for local anglers as DWR combats Utah chub at Scofield

In an effort to fight the explosion of the Utah chub at Scofield Reservoir, the Division of Wildlife Resources is proposing changes in fishing regulations for Scofield anglers in 2009.

In 2006, fisheries biologists counted an average of two chubs per net at Scofield. The number of chubs per net jumped to 26 in 2007 and then to 205 in 2008.

The DWR first responded to the presence in 2005 when 105,000 tiger trout fingerlings were stocked but the situation called for more drastic action. Beginning in 2009, the DWR is proposing regulations that would make the trout limit at the reservoir be lowered to four fish.
