Cache County Council grants Lemon authority to reach agreement with Uinta Academy

Could the end be in sight for the dispute between the Cache County Council and the Uinta Academy? Tuesday night the council voted unanimously to authorize County Executive Lynn Lemon to execute an agreement settling potential litigation and pending complaints regarding Uinta Academy’s request.The request is for a “reasonable accommodation” for occupancy by 12 unrelated persons in a home located at 8135 South 3600 West near Wellsville.Residents protested the request saying they already have their share of so-called group homes in their neighborhood. Deputy County Attorney Don Linton says the vote by the council simply allows the county executive to proceed with an agreement if it can be reached without coming back to the council for approval.
