Leadership from governing agencies in Uintah County met on Monday to discuss ways to improve communication between the Cities, County and Special Service Districts. Commissioner Bill Stringer brought the item forward with the goal to keep everyone on the same page and make the best use of resources. “In 2015, our Special Service Districts had been living on $36 million dollars a year between the 6 districts but then in 2016 that was cut in half,” explains Commissioner Stringer. “We live in tight times and the bottom line is we are moving into an era of maintenance of operation so we have to be especially sensitive in using our funds. Effective communication between the districts, boards and governing agencies will ensure everyone is informed and all factors are understood when considering projects.” Methods of improved communication were discussed during Monday's meeting but a course of action is not anticipated until January's joint meeting. The effort is not about a power grab, shares Stringer, but simply an effort to improve processes.
