Utah’s Optional Form of County Government
How does a County Council work in contrast to a County Commission? That was the question we set out with this week on the program but we came back with a lot more than we bargained for when we sat down with Lynn Lemon, County Executive Cache County; Gene Ciarus, Grand County Council; Randy Horiuchi, Salt Lake County Council.
