Mayor Lynn Chamberlain, March 24, 2020
Fellow citizens of Toquerville,
In the past two weeks I have attended several virtual meetings with other mayors and local community leaders, all dealing with the Corona virus emergency. The most recent meeting featured Governor Herbert and Lieutenant Governor Cox. May I say that I am proud to be a Utahn. The leaders of the State, Counties and Municipalities are working so hard with local businesses and governmental support agencies to try to stem the flow of this virus and get us returned to normalcy as soon as possible. This cooperative approach is essential to see that we handle this crisis with the least amount of damage to our economy.
Utah appears to be ahead of many of the other states in a proactive stance against this invader. The link below will take you to a plan that is being implemented as we speak. It is called the “Utah Leads Together” plan. This plan is dynamic in nature, and will flex with the changing needs of our situation. With our cooperation it will help us make great strides in decreasing the time that we will feel the negative effects of this outbreak. It goes much farther than that. It not only deals with the urgency that we are seeing now but addresses what happens when we do get it under control and start to restore life to its normal state. I encourage you to take a look at it. It will give you hope and help you understand what you can do to help out in this fight.
Mayor Lynn Chamberlain's Welcome Message
Whenever I tell someone that I live in Toquerville, they invariably comment on how beautiful our little town is and how peaceful it makes them feel to travel down its tree-lined streets. We do live in a beautiful, relatively quiet, little town, but there is much more here than you can see from the street. For over 160 years people have been living here and enhancing this community with hard work and love. Love for the surrounding hills, love for the dirt under their feet, love for their family and friends and love for the people that make this place what it is. Toquerville’s greatest asset is the people who call it home. There is a spirit among the folks that live here. It causes us to take pride in our town. To work together to keep it beautiful. To greet each other as friends when we pass on the street and assist one another when we are in need. It is a beautiful place to live no doubt. Nestled among the red hills of Greater Zion and at the foot of Pine Valley Mountain. With green, well kept yards and fertile fields. Still it is the people that really make Toquerville what it is. The very center of our universe.
