Little extra boost? » Arcadia Elementary in Taylorsville has a large sign on the front of the school stating it is sponsored by the Unified Fire Authority.
Arcadia also was a polling location Tuesday and on the ballot inside was whether Taylorsville should join the Unified Fire Service Area, which is a member of the UFA.
Granite District spokesman Ben Horsley says there was no conscious effort to promote the initiative on Election Day. He says the UFA has been a sponsor of the school for years and that the sign has been there for some time.
"Most of the school employees are not community patrons and would not be aware of local ballot initiatives," he added. "I’m sure that not much thought was given to the ballot by the school, and it’s really not something we’re concerned about."
