Springville Mayor Wilford Clyde has made it a point to visit local businesses. Nearly every week the Mayor goes on local visits to get their take on how the City is doing. Over the past few months, the Mayor has visited dozens of businesses—large and small. Business owners love the visits and the chance to talk with the Mayor and City officials about their businesses.
During a visit to Wal*Mart, the store manager proudly announced that the Springville store is one of the top two in the state and that a store remodel is planned for next year. James Curtis, Wal*Mart’s area manager confirmed that the Springville Wal*Mart is a great store that will be here for a long time. The Mayor had heard that Wal*Mart may be closing in Springville. Both managers strongly refuted this rumor. They both said, “Why would Wal*Mart close one of their best stores in the state?”
Western Trade just moved here from Provo. They were pleased with the interaction and reception they received from the City. This leather-working business has a great reputation and customers all over the country!
Springville Meat is just completing a huge expansion of their custom butcher operations. They ship product from Alaska to Florida, but Dave Cope says they still form their business around custom cuts of meat made to the customer’s order.
The 400 South corridor is busy with new businesses building and several of our industrial park businesses are expanding as well. It is an exciting time to be in Springville!

Construction Begins on Secondary Water Pond
During the past few weeks construction has begun on a new secondary water pond at the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon. The primary purpose of the pond will be to provide secondary water to the west side of Springville where substantial infrastructure is already in place to deliver non-culinary water to residents and businesses.
The exciting news is that this pond will also be available for recreational purposes too! A large, sandy beach area will allow families to relax and swim. The pond is planned to be stocked with fish for local fishermen and trails will connect into the existing trail networks.
The pond is being paid for through a grant from Central Utah Water Conservancy District. Recreational amenities will be paid primarily through Park Impact Fees. Construction of the pond will last well into next year and then parking lots and other infrastructure will need to be built. The pond should be open for public use in 2015.

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 25, 2012—Springville City Power & Light is one of 184 of the nation’s more than 2,000 public power utilities to earn Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3®) recognition. The American Public Power Association recognizes public utilities with this award for providing consumers with the highest degree of reliable and safe electric service. Brent McKinney, manager, electric transmission and distribution at City Utilities of Springfield, Mo., and chair of APPA’s RP3 Review Panel, presented 90 new designees on March 25 during the association’s annual Engineering & Operations Technical Conference held in Kissimmee, Fla.
The RP3 designation recognizes public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in four key disciplines: reliability, safety, workforce development and system improvement. Criteria within each category are based on sound business practices and represent a utility-wide commitment to safe and reliable delivery of electricity.
“RP3 utilities are shining examples of reliable and forward-thinking public power utilities,” said McKinney, “These 90 designees should be extremely proud of this accomplishment and what it means for their communities.”
“Receiving the RP3 designation means a lot to us,” said Leon Frederickson, Director of Springville City Power & Light. “It’s an honor to be recognized on a national level for the work we are doing here locally in Springville.”
This is the eighth year that RP3 recognition has been offered. APPA is the national organization representing more than 2,000 not-for-profit, community- and state- owned electric utilities. It is located in Washington, D.C.
 RP3®is a registered service mark of APPA.
You are invited to join thousands of people who will Drop, Cover and Hold On at 10:15 a.m. on April 17th* in the 2013 Great Utah ShakeOut!

The freezing temperatures have caused many residents to have frozen pipes in their homes. The Water Department of the city has had several calls and concerns regarding this problem. A good solution to prevent this problem is to allow a very small stream of water to run continuously from a faucet during the cold weather hours. If your basement is vacant or unfinished, you should have heat turned on until the cold weather diminishes.
