Uintah County Make Appointments/Consider Adjustments to SSD Boards

The Uintah County Commission discussed expansion of several Special Service District boards during Monday’s Commission meeting. Commissioners discussed adding 2 positions to the boards of the Impact Mitigation District and Uintah Transportation District. Commission Chairman Bill Stringer emphasized that the boards are making decisions with very limited resources and the Commission wants to be sure that all details are looked at. Having additional board members accommodates the goal of forming subcommittees on some of the boards. The Commission tabled appointments to the Impact Mitigation District. The Commission was split over appointments to the Uintah Transportation Special Service District. Commissioner Brad Horrocks motioned to appoint Bart Haslem and Dan Dilsaver to the Transportation District board. The motion failed. Commissioner Mike McKee motioned that Stan Gordon be reappointed to the open position. The motion failed. Appointments to the Transportation District was tabled. The Commission approved Dave Shivers to the Uintah Board of Adjustments, Rick Bell to the Uintah Animal Control Board, Joan Gilroy and Dr. William Wright to the Mosquito Abatement Board and Cam Pope was reappointed to the Recreation District Board.
