On Thursday, the Sandy City Planning Commission will mull the pros and cons of roping into the city's borders tens of millions of dollars in real estate near the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon currently on Salt Lake County's tax rolls. Then, catch a panel at the University of Utah on media and terrorism. Meanwhile, the Salt Lake County Health Department is considering new regulations for the electronic-cigarette industry.

Sandy City Planning Commission
Thursday, Feb. 19

Sandy could soon see its tax base grow if it decides to annex 92.5 acres on which sit 146 private residences near the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. The assessed value of the properties, some of which are owned by limited-liability companies with names like Cottonwood Rocks LLC and Rusty Dusty LLC, was too significant for a cell-phone calculator to tabulate. But it numbers in the tens of millions.

Salt Lake County Health Department
Wednesday, Feb. 25

As the popularity of e-cigarettes has spiked, so, too, have conversations among government types to regulate this industry. The Salt Lake County Health Department is having a public meeting to discuss roughly 17 new pages of regulations, known as Health Regulation No. 34, which has its sights set on regulating sales of e-cigarettes and the manufacture of the e-liquid used to fuel the vape.
