Herriman Initiates “City Shop Around” Program
Herriman City is launching a City Shop Around program during the month of June to support local businesses and residents economically during the COVID-19 pandemic. The City values local business and recognizes the strain placed on them and their patrons as the entire population fights the coronavirus.
The program introduces “Herriman Bucks” coupons, worth $10 toward a purchase of at least $20, to be used at participating establishments in the city. This campaign is designed to encourage residents to shop locally while supporting local business.
Residents should expect the “Herriman Bucks” in the mail by the first of June. Once in hand, the coupons can be used between June 1 – June 30, 2020. The participating businesses may then return the cards to Herriman City for reimbursement at the end of the program.
During this time of uncertainty, the City Shop Around program offers an incentive for patrons to spend at local businesses and invest in the local economy, which in turn benefits the community. Local businesses are a vital piece of keeping the Herriman community strong. They employ our friends and neighbors, sponsor community events, donate to local teams, and their sales tax helps pave our roads and construct our parks.
Together, the City, businesses, and residents hope to soften the negative impacts of the pandemic while maintaining hope for a return to life as normal in the near future.

Voting Indicated in Red
Business License Renewal Fee Waiver—As one measure to help our local businesses, the City has chosen to waive all business license renewal fees for the next year. The estimated fiscal impact to the City is approximately $70,000. The City Council voted 5-0 approving the waiver.
Herriman Shop-Around—Related to the business renewal fee waiver, the City is initiating a “Herriman Bucks” program. $10 coupons to Herriman businesses will be mailed to all Herriman households to be used throughout June at local establishments toward purchases of $20 or more. Businesses who participate will then return coupons used at their locations to the City to be reimbursed the cost of the coupons. The estimated financial cost to the City is $110,000-$190,000. More details will be published to the public in coming days and weeks. The City Council voted 5-0 approving the program.
Consent Agenda approved 5-0, which includes:
- Utility bill policy during the Emergency Declaration
- 2020 Arbor Day Proclamation
- Fireworks restrictions (map)
- Resolution appointing individuals to various boards and commissions
Budget—The tentative City budget was approved 5-0 to be published for the public to review. The public hearing for the budget will be on May 27, 2020.
The Mayor reminded residents to fill out the Census. The Finance Director noted the biggest way for residents to affect City revenue is by filling out the Census. Herriman’s large amount of growth since the last Census will allow a larger percentage of population-based State funding to come to City as long as the Census reflects that growth.
Declaration of surplus of two right-of-way parcels—The City previously obtained two pieces of property adjacent to Mountain View Corridor/Real Vista Drive by exaction. The City Council voted 5-0 to grant it back to the original property owner.
Public Improvement Districts—Discussion about an official City policy regarding PIDs, which allow property owners in a given area to assess a property tax to finance infrastructure. The City Council will continue to discuss the item, but at this point are considering limiting allowed PIDs to the future auto mall development area in northern Herriman. The City Council voted 5-0 to continue the item until the next meeting.
Vacation of Unimproved Trail—The subdivision was approved in 2007, before the existence of many trails in our area. The location that was reserved for trail access is not necessary as there are other paths nearby that are easier to use. The public hearing for this item was opened and closed without comment.
City Manager Updates
- Orange Phase—There has been discussion at a state level to move to the yellow phase of the Utah Leads Together plan. The City is prepared to move with the State if they choose to make that decision, which may include a soft opening of the city hall to the public to a few select areas.
- The Herriman Skate Park has re-opened. The City strongly encourages use of face coverings.
- Blackridge Reservoir will re-open in coming weeks. The reservoir and beach closed temporarily while the City created a plan to manage crowds. The City is using the parking lot to indicate capacity limits and will close the amenity to additional drivers once the lot is full. The amenity will not open until staff is fully hired and ready to manage the facility.
- Spring cleanup: Staff felt it was a huge success and the City received lots of compliments from residents. First Saturday saw challenges with a broken down truck and long wait times at the dump, but staff managed it well.
Statistics: 154 dump tickets in the 2 weeks. 242 tons of waste transported to the dump. There is still a large pile of green waste remaining that is being taken care of now. Weekdays: 120 residents per day. Fridays: slightly over 300 residents per day. Saturdays: 510+ residents each. Operations staff will give a full report with fuel costs, man hours, etc. at a later meeting.

- -Law Enforcement Appreciation Week—activities for LEA Week are scaled back this year due to the coronavirus, but residents are still invited to draw chalk messages and pictures for the officers in Crane Park during the week. There will be a memorial flag ceremony on Friday, which the City encourages people to watch the online stream rather than attending in person. Chalk

Today’s public message:
If you are ill with respiratory symptoms, don’t visit a hospital or clinic without calling first to receive instructions, or consider utilizing a telemedicine service. If you are healthy but have questions or concerns, DO NOT visit a healthcare facility—“worried well” individuals are flooding healthcare providers with COVID-19 concerns, and exhausting health care resources for those who are truly in need. Instead, call 1-800-456-7707 with questions or concerns.
Intergovernmental Liaison Update:
Salt Lake County has been working with State and local officials on a unified response. Salt lake County Emergency Coordination Center has been increased to a level 2 (scale of 1-5, with 1 being the most serious) activation. Information continues to be updated as the situation develops. We thank all of you for your patience and steady leadership as we put our resources to use.
The State of Utah announced today the following recommendations based on concern about community spread:
Limit mass gatherings of more than 100 people if everyone in the group is healthy, including church.
If you are older than the age of 60 or are immunocompromised, you should limit your participation in groups of more than 20 at a time.
If you can work from home, we are asking business leaders to implement teleworking as soon as possible.
Long-term care facilities will have restricted or screened access.
All Utah Systems of Higher Education institutions are ‘going digital’. Campuses and campus services will remain open. Labs will still be held.
K-12 schools (public, charter, private) are being asked to prepare to close. There is a 3 tiered plan in place for this, called “Ready, Set, Go.”
The Utah State Legislature is working on releasing State funds for the response. Increased testing capability continues to be a priority. The State and County continues to develop housing plans for our transient populations. Sanitary practices such as washing hands is the best preventive measure. Schools are looking at policies related to attendance, potential electronic classrooms, and cleaning techniques. Sanitary products are in high demand and should be in your procurement plan. We would like to stress the importance of Uniform decisions throughout the response of state, County and municipal governments. If you are planning to cancel municipal meetings, we would encourage you to contact the Lt. Governor’s Office or Intergovernmental Liaison from Salt Lake County. This is a great time to be looking at your electronic meeting policies and capabilities.
Managing hospital and medical center safety and capacity is a priority. If residents have symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, we encourage them to contact a healthcare professional through an electronic means(telehealth). Contacting health providers in advance provides an avenue for the hospitals to manage intake of individuals, without putting others at risk. If you would like graphics or other information to display publicly, you may contact Anna Lehnardt with the State of Utah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
