Members of the Salt Lake City Council pick a new council chair, a small Utah town is considering an ordinance recommending gun ownership, and a group that tries to help families fleeing polygamy is raising money to buy a big house.
Officials in Spring City, Utah are considering an ordinance that would encourage every homeowner to own a gun.
Spring City Councilman Neil Sorensen came up with the original idea that would have made owning a gun mandatory. But after discussion the city council quickly decided doing so would be too complicated, so they changed the language of the ordinance. Sorensen says he hopes the ordinance will make criminals think twice before attempting a home invasion.
The Salt Lake City Council last night approved funding for a catering kitchen at The Leonardo. The council also set aside some additional money for a potential incubator kitchen, which may or may not be located in the Leonardo.
