This week, you can shake hands, high-five or give Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker the stink-eye in a one-on-one meeting while discussing the mayor’s handling of important municipal matters. It’s also budget season, so Sandy residents will want to attend a budget hearing and weigh in on how their tax dollars are spent. Later, a Salt Lake City Planning Commission meeting will discuss new guidelines for historic apartments and multifamily dwellings.
