Public Notice of Vacancy

Notice is hereby given of Grand County registered voter vacancies on the new Grand County Budget Advisory Board, established by Grand County Ordinance No. 572 on February 6, 2018. The purpose of the board is to advise the County Council on matters pertaining to fiscal policies and procedures, and assist the County Council in fulfilling the statutory responsibilities contained in the Utah Uniform Fiscal Procedures Act for Counties (www.le.utah.gov, 17-36-1).

The Budget Advisory Board ordinance defines the duties and functions of the board, such ordinance available at www.grandcountyutah.net in the “Your Government” / “Boards, Commissions & Committees” section.

As per the ordinance, the new board shall consist of seven voting members and have the following composition:  The County Auditor; one additional County Elected Official who is not a County Council Member and who is not the County Attorney; two County Council Members; one non-elected County Department Head; and the balance of the Board shall be comprised of the newly designated Budget Officer (if not one of the positions listed above) and any other registered Grand County voter(s) with a demonstrated interest in, or professional knowledge of, budgeting and finance. 


The County Auditor and the Budget Officer shall be permanent board positions, although individuals holding the positions will change from time to time as determined by eventual changes in the elected County Auditor position or by stipulations or amendments to the County resolution that would designate a new Budget Officer.

All other board member terms shall be staggered so that approximately half of the terms are completed each year including the initial partial year of 2018. Initial board members will be appointed to serve a term through either December 31, 2018 (approximately 9 months) or through December 31, 2019 (approximately 21 months), as determined by the County Council. Beginning in January 2020, and each January thereafter, appointment of board members other than permanent positions shall be made by the County Council to serve a term of two years, and may serve up to two consecutive terms if re-appointed by the County Council; the initial partial year will be counted as if it were a full year.

The board shall hold regular meetings, the date, time and location of which will be determined by the new board soon after all board appointments are made by the County Council. Regular meeting dates, times, and location will be advertised within the County and noticed to The Times-Independent and then again at the beginning of each year. Meetings shall be in compliance with the Utah Open and Public Meetings Act. No compensation shall be paid to board members for their services.

Registered Grand County voter(s) with a demonstrated interest in, or professional knowledge of, budgeting and finance who wish to apply shall complete the “Board, Commission, and Committee Certification and Application form” (see details below). All relevant qualifications should be explained in the application.


The County Council will interview qualified applicants in person on March 20, 2018 after 4PM during an open, public meeting, and will subsequently consider the appointments to the Board who are most familiar with the needs of the County. The County Council reserves the right to extend or postpone the board appointments and/or to re-open the application process.

The appointment process for board members shall follow, as much as possible for a newly created board, the prescribed process approved by County Resolution No. 3007 (December 2013). Board members must agree in writing, as part of the application, to abide by the County’s Conflict of Interest Ordinance No. 462 (November 2007). Both documents are available at www.grandcountyutah.net in the “Your Government” / “Boards, Commissions & Committees” section.
