There was a bit of negotiation involved, but Juab County Commissioners came up with an agreed list of assignments for the coming year.
Oddly, after the negotiations, only a couple of things were changed.
“I am resigning as the commission chairman,” said Rick Carlton, who has been the chairman this past year.
Byron Woodland, commissioner, nominated Clinton Painter to return to the position. He had been commission chairman for one year before Carlton took the position last January.
Painter then offered a trade in assignments to Carlton.
“I would like to offer you (Carlton) a trade,” said Painter. “I would like you to take law enforcement and corrections. It goes hand-in-hand with your assignments.”
However, said Carlton, he thought that Painter should take two of his assignments in exchange for the trade.
He asked Painter to take on the Juab Rural Devlopment Agency Board and the Criminal Justice Advisory Council (Gunnison Prison).
When all was settled, Woodland will remain the county representative on the Six County Executive Board and the Six County EDD Board.
He will also work with the county road department, with the forest service, with emergency medical services department, with the Juab Special Service District #2, with the Juab Special Service Fire District Board, and with the mosquito abatement department.
Carlton will work with Six County Mental Health, will be on the Six County AOG Board, will be over the county buildings and grounds department, will work with economic development, will work with the Juab Special Services Fire District Board and will be the Juab Municipal Building Authority Chairman.
He will now also be over law enforcement and corrections.
Painter will now serve as chairman of the commission.
He will be on the Juab Rural Development Agency Board, and the Criminal Justice Advisory Council (Gunnison Prison).
Painter will also work with the Division of Wildlife Resources, the Department of Workforce Services, the Utah Travel Council, with the Six County Public Heath Board, with the Six County AOG Board, the Juab Recreation District, the Juab Weed Board, will be over the Juab County Fairgrounds, will work with the Juab County Fair Board, the East Juab Water Conservancy District, the library board and the Juab Special Service Fire District.
“We have three ‘yeses,’” said Carlton.h4>
