Food is Your Fare during the Dec. 7 S-Line Community Celebration
In less than a month, Salt Lake City’s first streetcar in more than 50 years will begin operation. To celebrate, the Utah Transit Authority is inviting the public to ride the S-Line free with a food donation on Saturday, Dec. 7.
Passengers can board the S-Line free of charge from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 7 if they bring a nonperishable food item to donate to the Utah Food Bank. UTA will also offer children’s activities, food and entertainment at the S-Line’s Fairmont and 300 East stops. The S-Line will open for regular service the following day, Sunday, Dec. 8.
To celebrate the completion of its first streetcar line, UTA is also offering a limited-time, promotional fare of $1 for S-Line passengers who pay using electronic fare media. This includes UTA FAREPAY cards, bank-issued contactless credit cards, as well as mobile payments such as ISIS and Google Wallet. Most UTA passes will also be valid as fare on the S-Line, including monthly passes, day passes and most employer and student passes. Riders who pay with cash will be charged the standard $2.50 fare on the S-Line. More information about promotional fare eligibility visit www.letsrideuta.com

It is an 8 mile long paved trail for walking, biking, and strolling. The trail connects from the Jordan River Parkway trail to Parley's Canyon. The section from State Street to Sugar House Park is under construction now. The trail, lighting pedestrian crossings and signs are under construction next to the UTA streetcar at approximately 2250 South.
For your safety, KEEP OUT of the construction zone. It is very dangerous to walk on the trail or the concrete tracks. Train and construction crews are working 24 hours a day.
Streetcar opening day is December 8th. Sections of the trail will open at the same time. Thank you Salt Lake county voters for helping fund this project!
Standard & Poor's on Monday raised its long-term rating on South Salt Lake, citing improved debt-service coverage.
South Salt Lake Rating Rises

DALLAS -- Standard & Poor's Nov. 4 raised its long-term rating on South Salt Lake, Utah's series 2010 sales tax refunding bonds by two notches to AA-plus from AA-minus, citing improved debt-service coverage. The outlook is stable.
“The raised rating reflects our opinion of the city's stable pledged revenue and significantly improved debt service coverage, partially due to maturity of all other parity bonds,” said Standard & Poor's analyst Daniel J. Zuccarello.
With a population of 24,000, South Salt Lake lies on the southern border of Salt Lake City. The city is home to a number of retail outlets.
With retirement of previous debt, revenue supporting the 2010 bonds runs more than 30 times higher than debt service, according to S&P. The city does not carry ratings from Moody’s Investors Service or Fitch Ratings.
How can South Salt Lake improve fall clean up?

The City of South Salt Lake is starting up Neighborhood Advisory Committees. The intent of NAC's are to create a line of communication between residents and city hall. They do not replace public hearings at planning commission or city council meetings but offer another venue to become involved in the community. They meet every quarter for at least an hour at city hall. If this is something you would like to take part in please contact Jennifer at 801-646-6757.
Mayor Cherie Wood is interested in what you have to say! She invites citizens to have a conversation with her the first Monday of every month. Available times are from 4-6 p.m. Call 801-464-6757 for an appointment.
