St. George News, Cedar City, UT – After being pushed out of Kaysville and Tooele County, Utah Business Revival’s free concert featuring Collin Raye is now scheduled for June 13 at the Iron Springs Adventure Resort in Iron County.

Organizer Eric Moutsos told Cedar City News the concert’s main purpose is business revival for small businesses that may be experiencing hard times, and Utah Business Revival has had success already at previous events.

“We helped save a bunch of businesses, mortgages,” Moutsos said. “A lot of these businesses aren’t getting the stimulus checks because they made too much money the year before. That was the whole reason I created Utah Business Revival, was to help those small businesses immediately.”

Moutsos said the concert originally had support from Kaysville, but he was later informed the City Council would no longer support the event out of concern for COVID-19.

“Once the City Council up there started to get negative phone calls, they turned on Katie Witt and were getting ready to release an internal press release that said they were going to do anything and everything to stop the concert,” Moutsos said.

He said he then began arranging for the concert to take place on private property in Tooele County but ran into similar problems.

He said a judge issued an injunction on the event, but while attending a related court hearing, Moutsos said he received information that the county was holding a BMX event at its Deseret Peak complex.

Moutsos said the reason for the injunction was identified as COVID-19.

“(The) order basically said we cannot put lives at risk, and the county attorney is saying you’re going to kill people,” Moutsos said. “At the exact same moment as she was saying these words, Tooele County – on their property – was allowing for this BMX event where there were thousands of people gathered … ” Read more.

EARLIER: City Council issues censure of Mayor Katie Witt

June 4, 2020

KSL News Radio – The City Council of Kaysville, Utah has issued a letter of censure against their Mayor Katie Witt and has asked for her formal resignation after her support of a country music concert to be held in the city despite state health directives.

City Council says Mayor Witt violated policy

The council says that Witt’s support of a Collin Raye concert to be held in protest of Utah’s COVID-19 restrictions, “violated the Utah Public Officers’ and Employees’; Ethics Act” and were politically motivated. The council is set to vote on whether or not to adopt the public reprimand during their council meeting on Thursday.

“This letter accompanies your formal censure for your support and endorsement of the proposed Utah Business Revival protest concert which went against Kaysville City event planning and permitting processes as well as the Davis County and Utah Governor’s health directives,” the letter reads.

Mayor Katie Witt has drawn criticism and the call for censure from residents of Kaysville and the Alliance for a Better Utah after her support for the country music concert.

Earlier this week, however, she said the criticism has been incredibly petty, and that her decision was made in order to “uphold the constitution.

“I think the whole thing is really petty … ” Read more.
