EAGLE MOUNTAIN — The City Council has voted to accept a bid from Rocky Mountain Power to serve as the city's utility.

Eagle Mountain had received two bids for the purchase of the city's electric utility, from Rocky Mountain Power and South Utah Valley Electric Service District.

The City Council met last week to consider the bids and hold a public hearing. In a 4-1 vote, the council accepted the bid from Rocky Mountain Power.

A purchase agreement will be brought to the council before the public vote on the Nov. 4 election ballot. Residents will have the opportunity to vote on the proposition of whether the city should sell the electric utility to Rocky Mountain Power.

You'll be sorry. You will pay the same as if you are living in New York City.

This is a terrible mistake for Eagle Mountain. Your rates will increase and quality of service will decrease.
