Behind the Headlines

Harassment on river trips, a critical Utah Inland Port audit and new housing measures

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Laura Dewey, a river guide with Paddle Moab guides a crew of 8 paddleboarders down the Colorado River, Monday, Aug. 15, 2022.

A state audit faults the Utah Inland Port Authority for awarding no-bid contracts and for accountability issues. The Salt Lake City Council fast-tracks proposed changes to off-street parking rules, shared housing and tiny homes — in what it says is an effort to address affordability. And Utah guides work to combat sexual harassment on river trips.
