Utah: Salt Lake City makes UTOPIA decision tonight

The Salt Lake City Council is scheduled to vote tonight on whether to participate in the multi-city UTOPIA (Utah Telecommunications Open Infrastructure Agency) FTTH (fiber to the home) project. With a key UTOPIA supporter instructed to recuse himself from the voting, it appears likely the city will vote "no". Recent articles:

Deseret Morning News: "S.L. likely to vote no tonight on UTOPIA"

Salt Lake Tribune: "No on UTOPIA looms in SLC"

Letter to the Salt Lake Tribune: "Smells like Qwest"

Denver Post: "Utah cities hesitate on fiber-optic plan"

Salt Lake Tribune editorial: "When UTOPIA calls"

CNET News: "Utopia awaits moment of truth"

Salt Lake Tribune political column: "Rolly and Wells: Are politics perfect in UTOPIA?"
The columnists note that the city's attorneys have instructed a key pro-UTOPIA councilman to recuse himself from voting on UTOPIA; they (and others) question whether he really has the conflict of interest the attorneys allege.
