At the February 27th Davis County Commission meeting, Commissioner Davis County Celebrates 10 Years of Voting by Mail and Allocates Coronavirus Relief Funds.

In a recent meeting held by the Davis County Clerk’s Office, several key agenda items were addressed, including a resolution commemorating the 10th anniversary of voting by mail in the county. The County Clerk highlighted the significance of this 10 year milestone.

Other notable agenda items included contracts for community events, such as the contract with Intermountain Lacrosse for Spring Games, and agreements facilitating transportation services for senior citizens, underscoring the county’s dedication to supporting various segments of the community.

Furthermore, the Sheriff’s Office discussed training agreements and donation agreements aimed at enhancing law enforcement capabilities and expertise in investigating sensitive cases such as child abuse, homicide, and crime scene management.

In closing remarks, made on February 23, 2024, by the Davis County Clerk’s Office, it was highlighted that these deliberations and decisions reflect the county’s proactive approach to addressing both immediate challenges and long-term community needs amidst the ongoing public health crisis.
