Vernal City Approves Amendments to Airport Agreement

Vernal City Council approved amendments to the interlocal agreement between Uintah County, Vernal City and the Uintah Transportation Special Service District regarding operation of the Vernal Regional Airport. In presenting the amendments, Vernal City Manager Ken Bassett explained that the original agreement lacked specific language of how the Transportation District was to make payments, specifically to the airport project engineer GDA. The amendments also state how payments are to be made: The engineering firm is to bill the Transportation District. The District will make the payment and then turn invoices and the payment transaction over to Uintah County. The County will then apply for federal funding reimbursement that will then be given to the Transportation District for what was paid. Vernal City Council approved all proposed amendments to the interlocal agreement.
