Bluffdale: Safe to go back in the water?

One changing of the guard that went relatively unnoticed last week was in the city of Bluffdale. You remember Bluffdale, the town whose motto is "At Least We're Not Eagle Mountain," one of several bergs whose city councils stripped their mayors of all powers last year.

In June, Bluffdale voters let stand the City Council's decision. However, that wasn't the end of it. When the new term rolls around, three of the five members of that same Council also won't be around any more. The first decided not to run again. The second made it through the primary but withdrew his name shortly before the election. The third was ousted by voters.

So, there's a (mostly) new city council in Bluffdale. We'll see how long it takes them to make headlines again.
