Pursuant to Utah Code 20A-1-510: if any vacancy occurs in the municipal legislative body, the municipal legislative body shall appoint a registered voter in the municipality who meets the qualifications for office established in Section 10-3-301 to fill the unexpired term of the office vacated until the January following the next municipal election.

On January 4, 2012, the Paradise Town Council will hold a Regular meeting with the purpose of filling the vacancy to be held at the Paradise Town Hall at 9035 South 100 West in Paradise, Utah at seven P.M.

Deadline for submitting an interested person’s name is January 3, 2012.

Unfortunately, Mr. Don Snyder who has served on the Council since January 2010 has submitted a letter of resignation to the Council on December 7th due to his health. We will certainly miss his level headed approach to working through issues and challenges that the town faces.

Please consider this opportunity to serve for a 2-year period, ending January 2014. Official filing (which consists of putting your name on a list) must be done with Bev. Of course, please feel free to contact the Mayor or any member of the Council with any questions about this position.

Also – we need a couple of more residents to serve on the Planning and Zoning board. Typically they meet just once a month for about an hour, often less now that building has slowed a little. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the land use ordinances of the community and the vital role they play in the organized growth and development of Paradise. Please get with Bev or the Council about those positions as well.

The qualifications for these positions require that you be a registered voter, live in the town continuously for the past 12 months, be of sound mind, not a convicted felon, nor can you have current serious crimes against the Town, unless resolved and purged in accordance with State Statute.
