Springville City officially postpones Art City Days 2020 until 2021
Springville, UT. April 8, 2020 – After two weeks of discussion, the Springville City Mayor, Council and City Administration announce the postponement of Springville’s Art City Days until June of 2021. Initially, Springville’s Art City Days was scheduled to open Saturday, June 6, and conclude on Saturday, June 13.
“With all the uncertainty associated with the pandemic of COVID-19, and following the counsel of Governor Herbert, the CDC and other health organizations, we unanimously decided to postpone Art City Days,” said Patrick Monney, City Council member, and former chairman of Art City Days.
The first priority of the Mayor, Council and City Administration is the well-being of all citizens of Springville, their friends and families.
Monney further said, “With no set deadlines of when social distancing, isolation or large public gatherings will be removed, it didn’t seem responsible for the well-being of our citizens or for the commitment of several thousands of dollars of our citizens’ monies to be tied up in contracts knowing the strong likelihood that Art City Days would be cancelled.”
Mayor Rick Child said, “Things are difficult all around. Our first priority is to protect our citizens against the effects of the COVID-19 virus. Our second priority and equally as important, is the need to be prudent with the funds of the city.”
All hopes of an annual celebration are not lost with the postponement of Art City Days. There is a possibility of an enhanced Springville City birthday celebration come the end of September, 2020.
“If we are no longer held to the current guidelines associated with large gatherings and social distancing, and the economy starts to show signs of strengthening, then we will welcome the possibility to celebrate not only the birthday of our great community, but also a celebration of the end to an awful pandemic,” said Mayor Child.
But for 2020, the Nestle 5K fun run, rodeo, balloon fest, children’s art festival, fun-a-rama, carnival, booths, art shows, quilting exhibits, car shows, children’s parade, the grand parade, concerts, battle of the bands, talent show contests, balloon fest, fireworks, and all the other events that take place during that first week of June have been postponed until June 2021.
“We look forward to an outstanding Art City Days 2021 with an even greater grand parade because we will have twice as many “school reunion” entries (those who would be celebrating this year, as well as those for next year), and the return of all the great events, booths and festivities that accompany the annual celebration,” said Councilman Monney.
“For this year, we wish all our citizens to be safe, healthy and careful as we continue to flatten the curve and end the spread of COVID-19,” said Mayor Child.

Springville City Water Boil Advisory – CANCELLATION
Drinking water sample test results from a State approved testing lab show no harmful bacterial contamination of the Springville City drinking water system.
These drinking water samples were taken immediately after it was discovered that a City water tank had been broken into.
As a precaution, water samples were taken at predetermined locations in the City and remitted to the State approved testing lab for analysis.
All current evidence indicates that the water yesterday did, and still does meet State drinking water standards. Based on the test results received, the drinking water is safe for human consumption.
If you have further questions, please call (801) 489-2700 during regular business hours.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Springville City Issues Citywide Water Boil Advisory
Springville City is issuing a water boil advisory for portions of the City (see attached map).
One of Springville City’s water tanks was found vandalized, and golf balls have been identified in the tank. As a result, the City is taking this incident seriously and issuing a boil advisory. All water is disinfected with chlorine as it enters the tank, so the degree of contamination appears to be minimal.
We advise you to use bottled water, if possible. If using your City-provided drinking water, bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to use for cooking, drinking, or cleaning food contact equipment. Use this link to review the state’s guidelines during a boil advisory: https://documents.deq.utah.gov/drinking-water/field-services/DDW-2018-002758.pdf
The City discovered this issue mid-morning of Friday, April 3, 2020. Once discovered, the City isolated the affected water tank. Water sample test results have been taken and should be available on Saturday, April 4, 2020, in the afternoon.
Test results will determine whether the boil advisory can be lifted, or additional precautions should be taken.
The City will update you as we learn more. Thank you for your cooperation. For more information, please call (801) 489-2700.
Anyone with information on the act of vandalism should contact the Springville Police Department at (801) 489-9421.
Tickets for the Miss Springville/Mapleton 2020 Competition are available at the City Offices for $8 or are available at the High School the night of the competition for $10.

On December 19, 2019, Springville City received final flood elevation determination information (with respect to Hobble Creek and Utah Lake) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), United States Department of Homeland Security.
The flood elevation determination becomes effective on June 19, 2020, and has implications to property owners who are located within the newly established floodplain and floodway. A map showing the newly established floodplain and floodway can be found at .
The State of Utah Division of Emergency Management, State Floodplain Manager will be holding a public meeting to discuss the effects of this determination on property owners in Utah County.
Those not able to attend the meeting can find helpful information on FEMA’s website.
The purpose of an Impact Fee Facilities Plan (IFFP) is to identify public facilities that are needed to accommodate development and to determine which projects may be funded with impact fees. Utah law requires communities to prepare an IFFP prior to preparing an impact fee analysis and establishing an impact fee.
This Impact Fee Analysis (IFA) is based on the information provided in the City’s Roadway Impact Fee Facilities Plan (“IFFP”) dated January 2020.
