The Summit County Council is seeking one individual to serve on the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission, with the recent resignation of Ted Levy, who was appointed to the commission on March 5. The deadline is today (Wednesday) by 5 p.m., but will be extended if no one applies.

According to Summit County spokesperson Julie Booth, Levy resigned his post after his first meeting on the volunteer board, saying he is unable to attend regular meetings for five months out of the year.

Summit County Council member Roger Armstrong said Levy travels often for business-related matters. Armstrong added that the Council always inquires about applicants' availability during the interview process. He could not precisely recall whether Levy was asked about his availability, however.

Meetings for the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission are scheduled every second and fourth Tuesday of each month. Any interested in serving must be residents of the Snyderville Basin Planning District for at least one year and can reside within the incorporated boundaries of Park City, according to a county notice.

The applicant who is chosen to replace Levy will serve through February 28, 2017.

The county notice goes on to say that the planning commission's role is "to hear, review and recommend approval or disapproval of land use proposals consistent with the

Snyderville Basin Development Code and other governing documents and to prepare or cause to be prepared amendments to the general plan, zoning and subdivision regulations.
