Cache County and Logan Municipal councils to meet Tuesday night

Adoption of a budget for 2012 is the major item on the agenda for the Cache County Council tonight. The council meeting starts at 5 p.m. in the Historic Courthouse. County Executive Lynn Lemon said more money has been found in the budget for salary increases since the last council meeting. Who gets those pay hikes – employees, elected officials or both – is expected to be decided tonight. Council members are also scheduled to adopt a 2012 Capitol Improvements Plan. Tonight’s meeting of the Logan Municipal Council is the last meeting of the year and it is also the last meeting for two council members: Laraine Swenson and Jay Monson. The new council members will be honored at an open house starting at 4:30 p.m. in the Logan City Hall Public Conference Room, 290 North 100 West. The council meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. Swenson and Monson will be replaced by Tom Jensen and Karl Ward, the successful candidates in last month’s election. Incumbent Council Member Herm Olsen was also re-elected. It was continued at the October meeting and Thursday, Dec. 8, the controversial Independence Student Living apartment project at approximately 1000 North and 600 East will be back before the Logan Planning Commission. The meeting starts at 5:30 p m in the council chambers of City Hall. Developers will once again be asking for a design review and conditional use permit for the project, which includes 108 condominium units, two lower levels of parking and five levels of residential space. A room full of neighbors came to oppose the project and a decision was delayed until a traffic study could be done
