Derek Dowsett is the Producer of the County Seat. Now entering his 11th season of the program, he has received what he considers a "Crash Course" in County Government.



For those of us who are Dave Ramsey fans we all know debt is a four letter word. In fact it was pointed out to me yesterday that debt is always a four letter word. This weekend on the County Seat we will dive into the world of public finance to learn how counties use debt as a tool and how bonds work.

Our guests this week include:

John Bond, Weber County Treasurer
Bret Millburn, Davis County Commissioner
Jon Bronson, Zions Public Finance, Sr. Vice President & Managing director

• We will discuss the benefits of bonding for infrastructure projects.
• The Concept of Generational Transfer.
• Which County Officer is in charge of the bonding process?
