Draperians won’t want to miss a hearing over allowing electronic signs in certain parts of the city, while Salt Lake City residents should attend a hearing for a proposed $10 million in motor-fuel excise tax revenue bonds to be issued for road repairs. Later this week, the Legislature will have Interim day with a whole day’s worth of committees to check out.
