A Conversation with Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall

Today on In the Hive, we hear from Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall, who took the helm of Utah’s capital city on Monday. Mendenhall answers questions about what she plans to do in the immediate term about homelessness, air quality, and the struggle over the Utah Inland Port.

Also, we answer one of your questions for our new series, Community Curiosities. Brad Wheeler asked: “Why, when I look at the purpleair.com map, does it show something different than when I look at the airnow.gov map?” If you’ve got a question you’d like answered, email comments@kcpw.org and we’ll try our best to get it answered.
