Mountain Accord

The Summit County Council on Wednesday approved the next step the county is taking in its role with the Central Wasatch Commission.

As we reported, the Central Wasatch Commission approved a seat at the table for Park City, and is allowing the county a position as the Wasatch Back representative.

Given that, as council member Chris Robinson noted, they modified an interlocal agreement they had with Park City, which previously governed their joint representation on the commission.

The Central Wasatch Commission has agreed to provide a seat at the table for Park City. Summit County is getting one too as the Wasatch back representative.

The Summit County Council is following up on that as part of their agenda Wednesday.

The council is meeting at the Coalville Courthouse. Shortly before 5:00 pm they will consider amending their Interlocal Agreement with Park City, concerning the Central Wasatch group.

The Commission, in its earlier form, was known as the Mountain Accord.

Park City Council member Andy Beerman is responding to some of the criticism of the Mountain Accord process which came after the Summit County Council decided, in a split vote, to continue funding for the Accord. Rick Brough has more.

The Summit County Council discussed Wednesday whether to continue with the next step in the Mountain Accord process. They said yes, but in a split 3-2 vote. The Accord has been succeeded by the Central Wasatch Commission made up of four entities in the Salt Lake Valley. Council Members Chris Robinson, Kim Carson, and Glenn Wright voted to continue with $100,000 in funding they had pledged to the Accord. The dissenters, Roger Armstrong and Doug Clyde, asked what the county is getting out of a process that's being run by interests in the Salt Lake Valley. Rick Brough has more.
