Fruit Heights Candidates

Mayoral candidate Don Carroll
Don Carroll - Mayor

As a current city councilman I have gained the experience and knowledge necessary to successfully lead this great city.   I consider my role as the new mayor to be that of a “re-boot” of the system.

My main focus if elected as mayor would be:

• build a stronger vision of Fruit Heights as a standalone community and not just an appendage of Kaysville.

• make sure that a self sustaining and economically feasible cemetery is a reality.

• work with the city staff to develop and then manage a realistic plan for managing our aging infrastructure. 

I ask for your support.

Eileen Moss – Mayor

Fruit Heights has been a great community for our family for 32 years. 

Having graduated with a BS in Family Resource Management/Financial Planning, I know the importance of budgeting and operating within our means. 

My experiences serving on the Emergency Preparedness Committee - 12 years, Planning Commission – almost 10 years, and City Council - 10 years, have given me opportunities to get acquainted with many in our community and to appreciate how many of our citizens serve within our city.  I am interested in hearing ideas and concerns from our citizens @ 

Please Vote Eileen Moss – Fruit Heights Mayor.

Julia Busche – City Council

I am running for Fruit Heights City Council because I want to serve my neighbors. I am a partner in my husband’s business of over 9 years: I understand the importance of fiscal responsibility and will use that experience to carefully maintain the city’s finances. 

It is crucial that our residents’ taxes and fees are well managed.  Careful growth is important as there is little land left on which to build.  Preserving open space is vital to our quality of life.  I support the proposed cemetery: it will help preserve 100 acres and fulfill an important need of our residents.

I’m a long time Fruit Heights resident. I am running on the following platform:

• Continue the strong tradition of frugality and low taxes and fees

• Improve and expand parks and trails as budgets allow; leverage volunteer effort

• Support acquisition and development of a self-sustaining cemetery

• Strong believer in individual property rights

• Explore ways to reduce water consumption by the city and residents

• Expand egovernment services for residents such as electronic billing and payment, social networks to communicate with residents, etc.

Legal background is helpful when considering legal issues that arise in municipal government
