17.10.390: COMMUNITY SERVICES:
   A.   Healthcare Support: To have good, quality healthcare and facilities that meet the healthcare needs of the community is a primary goal of Price City. Existing healthcare facilities, such as the IHC Castleview Hospital, currently provide a foundation for quality healthcare. The health of the community is an issue that should always concern city leaders. One method Price City has identified to address healthcare issues and needs in the community is the creation of healthcare committee, comprised of representatives of local healthcare providers, governmental leaders and interested citizens. The tasks of such a committee should include performing a comprehensive healthcare needs assessment, and developing a community healthcare plan for continued and improved services in Price. (See also appendix A, "Price City: A 21st Century Community, Healthcare Issues", as referenced in the ordinance codified herein, on file in the city.)
   B.   Telecommunications: Price City has strong interest and has taken a proactive role in the planning and encouragement of updated and quality telecommunication systems in the community. Sponsoring technology workshops and hosting the Smart Utah Conference have brought the importance of using and understanding telecommunications systems to the residents. Efforts to increase the community's involvement and understanding of these systems is an ongoing goal of the city.
Providing municipal business services to the community through internet services, including utility department functions and business licensing, is a city priority. (See also appendix A, "Price City: A 21st Century Community, Telecommunications Issues", as referenced in the ordinance codified herein, on file in the city.)
