SOUTH SALT LAKE — Leaders of South Salt Lake and West Valley City are fighting tooth and nail against the possibility that Salt Lake County’s third homeless resource center could be built in one of their communities.

Mayors of both cities on Monday — the day before the first public workshop was slated to take place — listed a slew of reasons why the up-to-300-bed shelter shouldn’t land in their cities, with two potential sites in South Salt Lake and three in West Valley City.

“I will fight it,” said South Salt Lake Mayor Cherie Wood, who held a news conference with other city leaders and residents at Woodrow Wilson Elementary.
