The qualifying period has ended for municipal elections. For Springville, with the exception of one district, the seats are all uncontested and those who qualified will automatically serve the next four years. The Springville City Council and mayor have done a great job during the last four years. Many things have been accomplished and they have done it all with dignity and very little disagreement or rancor.
Our city is in sound financial shape, we have wonderful improvements to a great city park, a new sports field complex is under construction, we are in the process of new street scaping and flood control, we have a new water source which will keep water restrictions at bay even during drought conditions, our city departments continue to serve the city well, and our elected officials are representing their constituents as needed.
Chip Martin will be filling the seat previously held by John Coyne, who is not seeking re-election. Mr. Coyne has contributed many hours or hard work in representing his district and Chip Martin has already been serving on committees within the city so he is well prepared to fill that council seat. Brian Skinner is not seeking re-election but I feel sure he will continue to contribute his skills and talents to Springville. Larry Jones will take over his spot.
I personally hope this council and mayor can continue their good working relationship while serving our city.
