Support HB 201! Valley Residents need your help.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I was able to pass HB 201, Municipal Disincorporation ----out of the House today with a vote of 52-17 and it will now be transferred to the Senate for consideration. This bill modifies a provision relating to the disincorporation of a municipality. It would allow the residents of the impacted incorporation the ability to ask a judge for disincorporation without having to wait 2 years as currently is required by law. It would greatly benefit the residents of Powder Mountain by permitting them to ask the judge to hear a petition for disincorporation immediately following incorporation. This bill will have major impact for the citizens of Ogden Valley and the State that are impacted by the bill passed last year that allows town incorporations.

I ask for your support and assistance with this bill. It will be heard on the Senate floor next week. Please email or otherwise contact Senators urging them to vote in favor of HB 201. Thank you for your help and efforts with this bill. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

I want to Thank Darla VanZeban, Jim Haley and many others from the Ogden Valley that have given me their full support on this important issue.

Sincerely,
Representative Gage Froerer

I hope this gets through the State Senate. This is common sense and should have been resolved long ago. The Weber County Commission finally stood up last year after intense public pressure and forced this into a lawsuit. Thanks go to the Powderville residents who have hung in there all through this fiasco. The entire population of Ogden Valley and Northern Utah will benefit if we can get a more controlled development at Powder Mountain under the existing zoning ordinances.
