The American Fork Police Department, which Cedar Hills contracts for police service, would like to give citizens an opportunity to participate in the acquisition of two new police service dogs. The current dogs, Wolf and Duco, are now nine years old (63 human years) and suffer from arthritis, back and joint discomfort, and fatigue.

It’s a new year and what better way to kick it off than to get involved in the community. As a city, we rely not only on staff and officials to make things happen but also on numerous volunteers who dedicate time and effort to make Cedar Hills a wonderful place to live. I want to thank all of those who serve on our many committees:
Presented by Chandler Goodwin, Assistant City Manager, about winter parking restrictions on City streets and school crosswalk safety. View the video: City Connections Nov. 2013.
The Vista Room at the Cedar Hills Community Center is the perfect place for special events: weddings, parties, family functions, business meetings, and more. Special resident rates available. Call Natalie or Becky at 801-785-9668, ext. 300, or visit us on Facebook or online at www.VistaCedarHills.com.
Effective January 1, 2014, a business license will be required for all non-owner-occupied residential properties. This business license will require contact information for the owner and someone at the local level, and will provide for inspections to ensure rental properties comply with current City code. All rental property owners should have received a letter through the mail regarding this new ordinance. Any questions can be directed to the City offices at 801-785-9668, ext. 100, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for additional volunteers to serve as members of our Parks, Trails, Beautification and Recreation Committee. This committee meets one evening each month and coordinates family events and brainstorms ideas on keeping our parks and trails looking nice, as well as planning for future parks and trails. A few of the activities they oversee are the Yard of the Month program, the annual Christmas party for residents, the summer pancake breakfast, and National Trails Day. We could use additional help.
We have just finished a new conference room in the Community Recreation Center for small business meetings, company training events, movie nights, etc. The room comfortably seats 10 people around the table with room for eight additional chairs.
