Wasatch County Councilmembers Consider Declaring Second Amendment Sanctuary County

Wasatch County

The Wasatch County Council meets in a regular session Wednesday at 3 PM. The second amendment sanctuary ordinance is on the agenda, along with a presentation for Encircle House.

Wasatch County Councilmember Kendall Crittendon returns with the second amendment sanctuary county discussion and possible adoption on the ordinance 21-04.

In part, the ordinance reads the Wasatch County Council's wishes to express its intent to stand as a sanctuary county for Second Amendment rights and to oppose efforts to restrict such rights unconstitutionally.  The ordinance would allow the use of practical and legal means to protect the right of county citizens to keep and bear arms.

Wasatch County Council, under the ordinance, would oppose any law that would unconstitutionally restrict the second amendment rights of Wasatch County.

There will be a public hearing starting at 6 PM.

Council Member Danny Goode requested the LGBTQ youth and family organization Encircle House make a presentation to the Council to educate Council and residents about the organization's work. He said he invited the group to present to increase inclusion, acceptance, and diversity throughout the community.

The meeting will begin with a public health update. The Council will hear a second reading on a Tax Sale ordinance.

A building department presentation by Quinn Davis will be on the agenda, along with a Planning Department update with Director Doug Smith.

You can attend the meeting online through alink on KPCW.org.
