Council District Newsletters for Public Utilities Mailing At the beginning of each calendar year, the Public Utilities Department identifies certain months for Council Members to include Council District newsletters as an insert in residents’ monthly utility bills. Each Council Member may opt to use the Public Utility billing for outreach purposes once per calendar year. The advantage of sharing in the Public Utilities mailings is Council Members only pay for printing expenses out of their communication budget, saving on costs associated with postage. Due to limitations with mail sorting machines, only three Council District newsletters can be accommodated each month. ➢ The following months have been identified for the Council to include a newsletter insert. Please let staff know which month you would like to include a newsletter as part of the Public Utilities billing : o April o August o December Council Members Johnston and Rogers chose December , Council Members Wharton and Mano chose April, Councilmember Dugan chose August , and Councilmember Valdemoros said to give her what ever was left to choose from. Please note: Council Members running for reelection should avoid choosing August in keeping with Council policy: A.19 NEWSLETTERS (04/2019). Filing Deadline – June 7, 2021 Primary Election – August 10, 2021 General Election – November 2, 2021 A.19(d) policy states: Using the U.S. Congress once again as a guide, Council Members who are campaigning for an elected office should not mail out Council newsletters any later than 90 days before a primary election. There are fewer than 90 days between Utah municipal primary and general elections and therefore no Council Member campaigning for elected office should mail out a newsletter between the primary and general elections.
