Summit in 60 December 8: County Council discusses trash fees, transportation funding
This week in Summit in 60:
- The state legislature overwhelmingly passed the Utah Medical Cannabis Act, touted as the compromise to Prop 2 and overturns the statewide initiative voters approved to allow access to medical marijuana.
- Trash collection fees could be going up. Summit County Councilors are being asked to consider a $4 hike to the annual bill for curbside service. If approved at their Dec. 12 meeting, the new $40 rate would be reflected in the July bill.
- Officials want a larger role in overseeing the operations and finances of Park City’s transit system, especially since the county funds the majority of it.
Jennifer McDonald, a self-described lifelong Republican, was selected as the Summit County Republican Party chair last week.
