Uintah County Flood Control Plan a Work in Progress

Clarifications to Uintah County’s work on a flood control plan were made during discussion following the Commission meeting on Monday. The county’s exploration of how best to approach flood control has been a hot topic during this election cycle and Stephen Borton, the Democratic candidate for Uintah County Commissioner, asked if the county has a flood control plan officially in place. Commissioner Mark Raymond responded that there is no set plan but the county is working on a plan. Commissioner Bill Stringer explained that the county is still evaluating the needs and the next step is to look at specific actions. Commissioner Raymond also commented that the county has to be realistic and that the issues of flood mitigation must be addressed one at a time.
