Bountiful

and will evaluate the program after several


months of implementation.
City Manager Tom Hardy stated that
this program attempts to balance the desires of
those that enjoy the deer as part of the experi-
ence of living in Bountiful and those who wish to
use their property for raising gardens, flowers,
shrubs and other plants in the City of Beautiful
Homes and Gardens.
The Division of Wildlife Resources is the
state agency responsible for managing wildlife
populations within the state of
Utah, including the deer popu-
lation. By working directly
with the division, the City
hopes to take advantage of
their experience, professional-
ism, and sensitivity to the ur-
ban deer population in Bounti-
ful, and to develop a program
that the DWR could replicate in
other cities that may face the
same issue.
Harvested deer will be donated to local
food banks and shelters in cooperation with the
Bountiful Community Food Pantry and the Utah
Chapter of Farmers and Hunters Feeding the
Homeless. The cost of preparing each animal for
use is $60. If you are interested in donating to
help with this expense, no part of which will be
used for the deer management policy, please
pick up a form at City Hall or online at
www.bountifulutah.gov. Any excess funds will be
donated to Farmers and Hunters Feeding the
Homeless. A permission form for access to your
property can be found in both places as well.

T
he Bountiful City Council recently adopted a
deer management policy to manage the
urban deer population within the city limits of
Bountiful in cooperation with the Utah Division of
Wildlife Resources. The comprehensive program
includes development of a web site for education
of citizens on what they can do to protect their
property from damage from deer, and a caution
regarding the feeding of deer.
Bountiful City is currently creating a list
of property owners who are willing to allow their
property to be used to access
deer within the city limits.
The program allows an evalua-
tion of the effectiveness of
managing the deer population
by selectively thinning some of
the deer on public property
and on property where the
property owner has consented
to its use.
The goal of the pro-
gram is to effectively manage
the wildlife population within the corporate lim-
its of the City of Bountiful, said Mayor Johnson.
What we are trying to do is develop a program
where we tolerate a certain number of deer
within the city limits, but manage that number
so that they do not become a health, public
safety or nuisance threat to our residents.
Mayor Johnson was quick to point out that the
program goal is not to eliminate the deer popula-
tion within the city limits. We have always had
deer within the city limits, and from time to
time the deer population has been thinned. This
thinning is simply an extension of an existing
policy that has been utilized when the need has
arisen.
The City and the Division of Wildlife
Resources will share the costs of this program,

Holiday Lighting Tips from Bountiful City Power
T
o ensure a safe and happy holiday sea-
son, Bountiful City Power would like to
share the following information:
Always check for overhead power lines
before stringing outdoor lights and stay
at least 10 feet away from them. Any
contact with power lines can be FATAL!
If decorating outside, use lights and ex-
tension cords designed for outdoor use.
Use only lighting and cords approved by
the Underwriters Laboratories (UL), an
independent, nonprofit organization that
tests electrical components and equip-
ment for potential hazards.
When hanging lights, make sure that nails
and staples do not pierce or pinch wires.
Check all indoor and outdoor decorative
lighting for frayed cords, broken wires
and loose connections. Discard damaged
lights and cords.
Follow the manufacturer's specification
for the number of light strings that can
be safely connected together.
Turn off indoor and outdoor decorative
lights when leaving the house and before
going to bed.
Consider using LED holiday lighting
they are shatter- and shock-resistant,
last much longer than conventional in-
candescent bulbs, produce almost no
heat greatly reducing the risk of fire
and/or burns, and use much less elec-
tricity than conventional incandescent
bulbs so are less likely to overload a
circuit.


The Davis Conty Head Start Program is
now accepting registration for the 2008-
09 school year. This is a free program
for families who are income eligible.

may qualify for. All programs include

to rely on the open power market to cover peak

generation capacity would give the City more flexibility
to cover these summer peaks. BCL&P will be making
major renovations to its power plant during the next 18
months to increase generation capacity to approxi-

Winter Parking in Bountiful
It is unlawful . . . to
be parked . . . on any
street between the
hours of 2:00 a.m. and
6:00 a.m. during the
months of November,
December, January,
February, and March.
I
ts that time of year again when the citys winter parking ordinance goes into effect. In an effort to
help our street department continue doing such an excellent job clearing the snow from the roadways,
we are asking for your cooperation in not parking your vehicles on the street when prohibited as outlined
below.
Bountiful City Parking Ordinance 13-1-103 states:
It is unlawful for any person who owns or has possession, custody, or control
of any vehicle to park or allow to be parked any vehicle or trailer on any street be-
tween the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. during the months of November, Decem-
ber, January, February, and March.
The ordinance also prohibits parking vehicles on the street when it is actu-
ally snowing, or within twelve hours thereafter. This prohibition does not include Main
Street between 500 South and 400 North.
This ordinance assists the street department in keeping the streets plowed during the winter
months. It is difficult for the snowplows to keep the streets free of snow if they have to maneuver around
vehicles parked on the street. Bountiful also has many residential streets and cul-de-sacs that are impos-
sible to plow if there are vehicles parked on them.
The police department will enforce this ordinance as we have for the past several years. Offi-
cers will be putting warnings on vehicles left parked on the street for the first two weeks of November.
After that, officers will begin issuing parking citations on all vehicles that are left on the street in viola-
tion of this ordinance. After the same vehicle has been issued two parking citations, that vehicle will be
impounded at the owners expense. This includes all cars, trailers, boats, etc.
The police department does not want to issue parking citations or impound
vehicles, but we will do so to assist the street department in keeping the streets clear of
snow and safe for our community. Please help us by keeping your vehicles off the street
when prohibited.
It is also prohibited to shovel or blow snow onto the streets when clearing it
from your driveway or sidewalk.
