Girl Scouts Earn Back All of Stolen Cookie Money and More!
In March, Taylorsville Girl Scout Troop 2532 had their cookie money stolen outside Walmart. Within just a few days, our UPD officers were able to apprehend the suspects. The community rallied around this troop and Mayor Rechtenbach invited them to sell their Girl Scout cookies at City Hall. They sold 855 boxes and appreciated the support from the mayor, several councilmembers, Representative Jim Dunnigan, Congressman Jim Matheson, and all our great Taylorsville residents! more>
