LOGAN –Cache County’s extension agricultural agent Clark Israelsen has long been a supporter of a water conservancy district. He said he believes it is needed and has worked for its passage every time there has been an effort to establish a district in Cache County.
Israelsen said he is cautiously optimistic about the movement now underway. He said each community has had its own public hearing and that the project has reached the phase where there is a 60-day protest period for those who have objections. Israelsen said an effort has been made to address each question and concern as they come up.
“Make up the board of elected instead of appointed position, taxing authority, all of those things,” he said. “We’ve really made a valiant effort to try to resolve any concerns. We think things are going pretty well.”
He said the Cache County Council hopes to have the water conservancy district issue on the ballot in the November election.
