After serving two years as chairman of the Cache County Council, Greg Merrill stepped down Tuesday. Councilmember David Erickson was elected as the new chair and Karl Ward was chosen to be vice chairman.
Erickson is a teacher in the Cache County School District and he has been on the council for the past two years.
He told the other members of the council that he is honored to be elected as the chairman.
“I’m so impressed with the team that we have, even on the council, the team with all the personnel that works for the county,” Erickson explained. “Every time you turn around and something comes up you have 20 solutions. They bring it down to one or two solutions and it always seems to work out.”
Erickson said he feels a lot has been accomplished during the year just ending, including the water conservancy district.
