SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The newly created city of Millcreek has its first mayor.

Jeff Silvestrini is a lawyer who’s long served in leadership positions in the community just outside Salt Lake City.

Silvestrini was the only candidate on the ballot after businessman Fred Healey dropped after following his diagnosis of kidney cancer.

Millcreek was a county township until voters decided to form a new city government last November.

Silvestrini and the newly elected city council now have two months to guide the 62,500-person community from Salt Lake County’s government to an independent city.
