Sandy council members question mayor about email list

February 27, 2019

SANDY, Utah (AP) — Communication remains a source of contention among officials in a Salt Lake City suburb after parts of the water system became contaminated earlier this month.

Members of the Sandy City Council say they were removed from a distribution list for citywide emails, discussing the matter at a council meeting Tuesday.

Mayor Kurt Bradburn says he gave the order to remove the council from the list, noting it was a mistake.

A water pump malfunctioned on Feb. 6, flooding parts of the city water system with fluoride and corroding some pipes.

Some residents say they weren’t alerted to the water problem until a week later.

The contamination issue has prompted multiple investigations.
