Petersen of the Cache County Council attended the Town
Council meeting April 18 to present a resolution to
create Cache County Regional Council and to ask for
the support from the town of Cornish.
The theme of the Cache County Regional Council is
"Our Valley, Our Solutions," said Petersen. The focus
of the council will be to protect resources, improve
the environment and unify the entire valley including
Franklin County, Idaho.
"The council has two parts; we want to start thinking
liking a valley and identify the issues surrounding
Cache Valley, and we want to act as valley by taking
recommendations and doing something about them.
"The idea is that we all need to work together," Petersen
said. "Seventy-one percent of Franklin County works
in Utah so we are including them in the plan. And they
are eager to be involved."
The proposal is to amend the interlocal agreement.
Petersen said they want to change it from being an oversight
board to a council.
All cities including Cornish voted to pass the resolution.
Erma Naegle, councilwoman, said, "I think this is
great. It will help to protect our resources."
