Dialogue is just in the preliminary stages, but if the necessary steps are taken Kamas could be a stage host for the 2014 Tour of Utah, one of the most high-profile professional cycling events in North America.
The possibility was discussed at the last Kamas City Council meeting on Dec. 10, and Kamas Mayor Lewis Marchant said the discussion went "very positively," adding that the city will be sending a letter of intent to host a stage of the race.
"This is the first time we've done anything with [Tour of Utah]," Marchant said.
Marchant said that hosting a stage could present economic benefits to the community.
"This could be an opportunity for some of our businesses to have extra business come in," Marchant said.

Marchant is recovering after major surgery
Kamas Mayor Lew Marchant announced Thursday that he will campaign for a third term because continuity in leadership is needed as growing pains squeeze the small town east of Park City.
Elected officials in Kamas have no term limits.
"I feel I have at least another term," said Marchant, 64, who recently underwent major surgery.
He had considered not running because of health issues. The Republican has been mayor of Kamas since 2002 and is near the end of his second term. He was a Kamas planning commissioner and served two years on the City Council before being elected mayor.
Nobody else has indicated they will campaign for the nonpartisan post.
"For at least a year I have thought about the election coming up and what my plans would be," Marchant said in an interview at his office at City Hall. "I knew that depended on the outcome of the surgery."
Meanwhile, Kamas City Council seats belonging to Rod Smith and Diane Atkinson are also on the ballot in November, he said.
"I think we have an extremely close-knit council," Marchant said. "We do have times when we disagree. Sometimes differences of opinion and maybe even disagreements make for better decisions."
Marchant also noted that morale among the city's eight employees is high.
"We have developed great teamwork in our city," he said.
"Kamas has been the hub of this valley for as long as I have known," said Marchant, who was born in South Summit. "We have felt that we wanted to encourage that same process, remain the commercial hub of the valley."
Marchant said he looks forward to seeing through commercial projects along State Road 248 in the entryway corridor. He boasted about architecture on the new Kamas Health Center at 151 W. 200 South.
"We have a vision of extending that look Wanting to be involved, particularly in some of the projects that are already started, is a reason that I want to run," Marchant said. "We'll have a beautiful entryway coming into our city."
If re-elected, Marchant said he would push the council to limit residential growth in Kamas.
"We're not really encouraging a lot of residential growth within our city limits," he said, adding that Kamas businesses will be supported by customers in neighboring Oakley and Francis.
Growth will impact most decisions any person elected in Kamas makes in the next four years, Marchant said.
"That has always been my greatest concern and I think it will continue to be the greatest concern for Kamas City and Kamas Valley as a whole," he said.
Marchant, who is married, has two children who he adopted. He has six grandchildren. Marchant owns a flower shop in Kamas with his wife and drives a bus in the South Summit School District.

Kamas Mayor Lewis Marchant said there is no place in Kamas where they can use the funding either.
"If we have a subdivision coming in, we require the developer to put the roads in, so there is no place in Kamas where the funding is needed," he said.
Councilmember Roger Armstrong said that he thought it was a mistake not to plan for future growth.
"I think other communities need to anticipate that they are going to grow and anticipate that growth to ensure infrastructure doesn't grow so tightly around traffic corridors that they can't really address traffic issues when they arise. And that's precisely what these funds would allow them to do," he said.

Kamas Mayor Lewis Marchant said he is confident some type of restrictions will be approved.
"We have been strongly encouraged by Summit County, the fire department, and the Utah Governor to pass a fireworks ban," he said.

"We've had some posters up and we've tried to encourage people to participate," Kamas Mayor Lew Marchant said.
"I guess Census workers have got some work to do."
Federal and state governments dole out some tax dollars based on the Census count, Marchant said.
"On top of that, we would just like to have an accurate count so we know where we're at," he said.
