We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

AlaCart2Go’s Ross Harrington, on 200 South, gives the thumbs down to police leaving squad cars at the station at the end of the day'an idea was floated during Salt Lake City’s budget talks:



Let the cops take their cars home. The more the merrier. If something happens'a major incident, either a natural disaster or manmade disaster, a terrorist act or whatever'what? You’re going to have the cops go to the police station, get their car, check out all their stuff and then go? You just lost all the advantage of rapid response. We’ve got enough cars for them to be taken home. And I, for one, would sure like to know that if something does happen, we’ve got cops there within minutes vs. an hour or two.
