The board of the Central Wasatch Commission has decided to give Summit County a seat on the panel. But the decision has to go through a ratification process.
The Summit County Council wrote a letter last January asking for a seat with the Commisison.
Following a meeting of the Central Wasatch group on Wednesday, Summit County’s Deputy Manager Janna Young said the group agreed to designate Summit County as the representative for the Wasatch Back.
Along with that, Park City would have a seat of its own.
But the decision has to be approved by the legislative bodies of the original members of the Central Wasatch: Salt Lake County, Salt Lake City, Sandy and Cottonwood Heights.
Previously, Young said, the county and Park City had made an interlocal agreement that they would take turns, on a two-year basis, as a representative for the Wasatch Back.
If this new plan is approved, she said that interlocal agreement would be rescinded.
