In the Hive

Checking in with SLC’s mayor, and the dismantling of a homeless encampment


Today on “In the Hive,” we check in with Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall. We’ll hear about why the mayor decided to extend the city’s mask mandate, even as the state requirement came to an end. Mendenhall also tells us why she thinks our region needs another homeless resource center. Plus, we visit the dismantling of a homeless encampment in the so-called “Fleet Block” of SLC’s west side.

CLARIFICATION: The accompanying audio states that Salt Lake City’s Redevelopment Agency owns the Fleet Block. It is actually owned by Salt Lake City proper and managed by the city’s Real Estate Services Division.
