Last June the Daily Herald ran a story on a number of Utah Libraries that have started lending out all-access state parks passes. I contacted our library to find out if we could do the same.
Our wonderful librarian Gene Nelson made it happen – he was able to successfully obtain a pass for our Library, so now Provo residents are able to check the $75 state pass out free of charge and access some of Utah’s most beautiful parks.
The pass is now available via a first come first served reservation system at the reference desk of the library. Since some libraries in the county have had less than a terrific experience with the circulating pass, Gene came up with a clever solution to see that as many residents as possible had access to the pass.
The city has 13 different committees covering every aspect of the city. Please feel free to contribute of your talents in helping the city shape its future.

No Change to Garbage Pickup Schedule After Holidays Now
With the first holiday of the year right around the corner, remember, garbage in Provo City will now be picked up on all holidays except Thanksgiving. In the past, the Sanitation Division of the Provo City Public Works Department did not pick up garbage on holidays because the South Utah Valley Solid Waste District was closed. Instead, it picked up garbage a day later after holidays. But the district has recently changed its hours, and the sanitation division has done the same.
It’s easy to help, and will have a tangible effect on Provo, so please spread the word!
