Dear Pleasant Grove Resident,
In an effort to continue providing quality service to Pleasant Grove residents, the City has recently done some rate analysis for the types of infrastructure that the City provides. This analysis showed that we would need to have some rate increases in order to keep up with improvements on our various systems. The City will hold a public hearing on these proposed rates on Tuesday, June 10th in the City Council Chambers (86 East 100 South) at 6:00 p.m. Below is a table showing the proposed increases and some explanations of why these increases are needed:
Culinary Water- The City has numerous water lines that are extremely old and continue to break. It is cheaper for the City to replace these lines than to constantly repair water main breaks. We also know we have some main lines that need to be replaced before we re-pave the road on top of the water line infrastructure. We are putting a plan together to make sure we don’t have to tear up a new road in order to replace a water line. The proposed increase would make some of these main line replacements possible.
Secondary Water- The City is looking at expanding storage of secondary water to enhance the service that is being provided. Expanding the storage would include the addition of a water tank on the system. In order to minimize the bonding necessary for this improvement, the City would like to pursue a pay-as-you-go option. This might not eliminate the need to bond and pay interest, but it could help reduce some of those costs over time.
Drought Relief Surcharge- In order to have enough water to provide secondary water service through the summer, Pleasant Grove City needed to rent water to meet those demands. Some of our storage water has been restricted due to the drought in Utah County. Because of these restrictions the City needs to pursue the renting of more water. The intent of the Drought Relief Surcharge is to have a one year surcharge to meet the water demands. If the drought continues then we’ll likely need to charge this again next year. If the drought is broken then the surcharge will be dropped next year.
Storm Drain- Pleasant Grove City has invested money in the pursuit of securing land for the future storm drain basins. There are still properties the City needs to buy before development takes these options away. The additional rates will help the City secure these properties and make sure that we continue to meet our debt service ratios needed to keep our high bond rating.
Sewer Rate- The sewer infrastructure owned by Pleasant Grove is doing very well. However, the treatment cost will see an increase. Pleasant Grove City belongs to the Timpanogos Special Service District (TSSD) who provides the treatment service. They have increased their fees to the City for this service. Those fees are being passed along to the residents of Pleasant Grove. If you would like to challenge those fees you can attend a TSSD Board Meeting the third Thursday of every month at 6:00 p.m. The address to their meeting is 6400 North 5050 West which is an extension of Pleasant Grove Blvd., west of I-15 heading towards Utah Lake.
Garbage- Garbage rates haven’t been increased since 2008. Since that time the cost of providing the service has increased through our contract with Republic Services and the tipping fees paid at the North Pointe transfer station. In the past the City has absorbed these increases and has reached a point where we can no longer do so.

6-24-14 - Alpine School District and Pleasant Grove City Propose Joint Venture
Alpine School District and Pleasant Grove City are putting the framework together for a joint venture to enhance Battle Creek Park. Alpine School District would purchase Battle Creek Park from Pleasant Grove City to put in 8 new tennis courts and help accommodate the construction of the new field house at Pleasant Grove High School.
As part of the joint venture, Pleasant Grove City will still allow reservations of the Battle Creek Park pavilion for private use. The playground equipment will be relocated next to the pavilion. The pavilion and restrooms will remain in their current location. One monument will be relocated to accommodate construction, but the other monuments will still be in place at the park. The new tennis courts will be open for public use unless scheduled for Pleasant Grove High School events.
"We appreciate the opportunity to provide quality facilities to Pleasant Grove High School and Pleasant Grove City residents. The new tennis courts and field house will be great additions to that area." Rob Smith- Alpine School District
The proceeds from the sale of Battle Creek to Pleasant Grove City will be used for improvements of the softball complex at Shannon Fields. This could include the potential for building a new ball field at the complex.
"We feel that this joint venture will not only make Battle Creek Park better, but will also allow us to offer more recreational services with the new improvements at Shannon Fields. We are grateful to have an excellent working relationship with Alpine School District." Mayor- Mike Daniels
Pleasant Grove City will hold a public hearing regarding the selling of property to Alpine School District. The hearing will be held in the City Council Chambers at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 8th. The City Council Chambers are located at 86 East 100 South in Pleasant Grove. There will be a presentation to discuss more of the details regarding the joint venture at that meeting.

U.S. 89/1100 East Intersection Improvement in American Fork, Utah County
U.S. 89/State Street Improvements; Orem to Pleasant Grove
Orem 800 North Trail; 1000 East to Palisade Drive
This work is taking place along 800 North in Orem between 1000 East and 1600 East. Weekdays, westbound traffic along 800 North at approximately 1600 East will be reduced to one lane from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Questar crews will be performing utility work along the north side of 800 North over the next two to three weeks. Construction crews will begin placing road base for a section of the trail between 1100 East and 1300 East. The Murdock Canal Trail will be temporarily closed in the work zone but a detour is available on 1200 North. Benefits of this project include a wider and longer sidewalk along 800 North and will complete the interconnections between the Murdock Canal Trail, the Orem 800 North Trail and the Provo Canyon Trail.
I-15; South Payson Interchange to Spanish Fork River
Crews have reached substantial completion for the widening project on I-15 from the South Payson interchange to the Spanish Fork River. Barrels have been removed from the road and all north and southbound lanes are open for use.
Crews continue to work on the bridges at Utah Avenue, 400 North and Payson Main. Traffic will be reduced to one-way lane configuration, as needed, until project completion. Traffic will be controlled with temporary traffic lights and flaggers. This project will improve traffic flow and help accommodate for future growth throughout region.
