The Salt Lake City Council was told it is "a bridge too far" for a governmental body to try to influence a private event: Days of '47 Parade.
A private event? That is ludicrous. How can this be considered a private event when the whole state, including the government, is involved and considers it a holiday.
All Utah state government offices are closed on the 24th of July. Utah courts are closed. Need to get your driver's license renewed? Not on the 24th of July.
