Recap of July 25, 2017 SLC City Council Meeting

At Tuesday’s meeting, Council Members who attended the National Conference on Ending Homelessness reported to their peers about the lessons they learned. Discussion included the Road Home’s positive reputation nationwide, the importance of housing for single women, and eliminating barriers to employment. The Council will continue to discuss affordable housing and homelessness, which are both Council Priorities for 2017.

During the Work Session, Council interviewed candidate Grant Alex Cragun (picture above) for the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) Board. Council later approved Cragun for a term ending March 31, 2019.
