Kooyman likely not running for re-election in Hyde Park

Hyde Park will have a new mayor next year.Dave Kooyman has until the city’s electoral caucus meeting in September to decide whether he officially won’t run again, but he says he feels he’s already made up his mind and that eight years is long enough to serve.Kooyman said Hyde Park is in good shape, including the budget, and he feels there are good people out there who will probably come forward. When asked what Kooyman felt best about during his time as mayor, he listed a road exchange between his community, the county, North Logan, Logan and the state as a key event.”The exchange with the state that put 1000 West in the state’s hands, our cooperation with North Logan and Logan City and the county in getting that done (was a good thing),” Kooyman said. He also noted that the city is embarking on the installation of a 1.5 million gallon water tank in the town’s Lions Park to replace a quarter-million gallon tank. Kooyman said the city has kept growth at between 3 and 5 percent, which he said is manageable for a city the size of Hyde Park.
