25 have applied to be on 11-member water district board

Now that voters have approved a water conservancy district, members of the Cache County Council have wasted no time in starting to put it together.

At Tuesday’s council meeting, Cache County Executive Craig Buttars said 25 people have already turned in their names as potential members of the district’s board.

“Of course, we’ve got one individual from each one of the council districts,” Buttars explained, “and then we will be appointing one individual to represent agriculture and irrigators, then three at-large spots. There will be a total of 11 out of those 25 that will be recommended to the council.”

Buttars said those chosen will decide which will be serving two-year or four-year terms as board members. He says there will be no tax increase to implement for the water district because the county has provided $250,000 from its budget to get it started.
