MILLCREEK, Utah — A group of Millcreek residents is seeking to incorporate the Salt Lake City suburb as a city, two years after a similar effort failed.
Organizers on Friday submitted petitions with nearly 5,000 signatures in an effort to qualify the proposal for the ballot.
Organizer MaryAnn Matheson Strong told KTVX-TV (http://bit.ly/MjKBaB ) that many residents have told her that they regret not voting for incorporation in 2012.
She says she agrees with Thomas Jefferson that "the government closest to the people is the government that governs best."
Millcreek operates as a township under the Salt Lake County Council.
