  • Protecting Utah’s wilderness

    When possible, the information gained by the survey is used by the county to help guide the county’s goals for service improvement.

    New Mexico’s National Committee Woman, Rosie Tripp, traveled from Socorro to attend the installation of new officers.

  • Council did the right thing

    The council’s action in taking no action was the right thing to do in regards to the vacancy left by Jim West. While we would not have had any issue with the council beginning the process of seeking out applicants, there is nothing wrong with waiting until January.

    Yes, this will delay the process but that is a small price to pay when you consider that this really needs to be done right – and by those it will impact most, the council coming on board in 2009.
