COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, Utah (AP) -- Cottonwood Heights is becoming a city and today residents will go to the polls to vote for its government.
The five candidates for the city's mayor are Suzanne Bitter, Chad Booth, Kelvyn Cullimore Junior, Jerri Harwell and Jim Keane. Only two will make it onto November's ballot.
Voters will also decide which eight candidates will make it out of today's primary out of a field of 30 candidates for City Council.
Voters approved the move to become a city earlier this year.
The city at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon will have 34-thousand residents.
The incorporation goes into effect January first.
