Cache County Executive David Zook was a guest on KVNU’s For the People program last week during the County Hour. During his interview, he praised the accessibility of Utah’s elected officials and their responsiveness to local residents. He also discussed a recent economic study that highlighted the importance of agriculture in the local economy and how it is closely tied to water resources.
Zook also mentioned some other bills that he is keeping an eye on during this legislative session. One of these bills is Representative Dan Johnson’s proposal for a new American Welcome Center, which aims to add 5,200 square feet to the English Language Center and move CRIC (Cache Refugee and Immigrant Connection) there. Another bill that Zook is excited about is Little Lambs’ proposal for a new facility in their community, which they are hoping to get $3 million in funding for. In addition to these projects, Zook also mentioned transportation bills that are high on their priority list, including money for work on the South Valley corridor, an east-west connector between SR 89-91 and SR 165, and development of the West Cache corridor.
