The Salt Lake Chamber, Governor Gary R. Herbert and the Utah League of Cities and Towns recently honored Kaysville City with the “2017 Utah Governor’s Business Friendly City Award” for efforts to create the best business climate and reduce burdensome regulations at the local level. The reward was presented to Mayor Steve Hiatt by Gov. Herbert at the Utah League of Cities and Towns Annual Meeting on September 13, 2017 in conjunction with the Utah Business Friendly Cities Initiative.
To be eligible for the award, every city is required to review their business regulations and make critical changes to help cultivate an environment where businesses can thrive. As part of this, a survey was sent to business leaders in the city, city regulations were reviewed, and there was a collaboration to revise and repeal unnecessary ordinances, regulations, and procedures currently in place.
