BOUNTIFUL -- The gale-like winds that wreaked havoc in this community on Dec. 1, 2011, caused millions worth of damage, and also did a number on the city’s holiday decorations.
City officials voted recently to spend $54,260 to upgrade holiday decorations for Main Street for the upcoming season. The expenditure is the first for holiday decor since 2007.
Councilman Tom Tolman said many of the holiday decorations were worn out and had wiring defects or were destroyed entirely during the wind storm.
He said there are about 30 banners that are still in good condition and can be utilized in the Main Street area on decorative poles for the coming season.
