East Carbon and Sunnyside Will Become One City Beginning in January

Two Carbon County cities will soon merge into one city. On Tuesday voters in East Carbon and Sunnyside overwhelmingly approved a measure to consolidate the two cities, which share a fire department. The Deseret News reports the cities will become one starting on Jan. 1 and will be led by two mayors and a city council of ten members. That council will select a mayor to serve a four-year term and come up with a name for the new city. The city council would then eventually be reduced to five members. East Carbon police also have a contract to patrol Sunnyside. Utah elections director Mark Thomas says city consolidations are often discussed but don’t usually make it to a ballot or win voter approval.
