Candidates for Price River Water Improvement District board
I would first like to thank the people of Carbon County for their trust and the opportunity to serve as a board member at Price River Water Improvement District. In serving, I have become aware of the many challenges that face our area relating to water and sewer. A few examples are: new development, shortage of water due to drought, insuring that the present infrastructure is able to serve the existing population, developing infrastructure for future growth, upgrading existing distribution lines to meet current standards, maintaining existing lines, funding for water quality and sewer treatment, compliance with state regulations for water quality, and water conservation.
It takes the combined effort of PRWID board members, staff, employees, and concerned citizens to insure that water and sewer needs are met throughout the local area. My goals are to continue monitoring water quality and sewer distribution for all county residents, maintaining and lifting our standard of living throughout Carbon County, and meeting the needs for growth and vitality. All of these can be accomplished with a wise, sound budget, with small impact to community and individual resources.My goal is to provide water and sewer, vital and essential needs of everyday living, to the individuals of Carbon County. I appreciate the continued opportunity to serve, making Carbon County a great place to live.
Please vote on Nov. 8.
My name is Rex Sacco. I am 52-years old, a life-long resident of Carbon County, and graduated from Carbon High School in 1971. I attained a degree from CEU in mining mechanics. In 1974 I graduated from the Police Officer's Academy at Westminster College. I've taken continuing education courses in many areas of law and technical training over the years, including criminal, property and access, railroad, interstate commerce and exchange and boundary law. I served 6 years in the Utah National Guard mustering out at the rank of Staff Sergeant. I've worked at some of the area power plants and as a coal miner.
I presently work as the Lands and Access Coordinator for Carbon County. My duties include administering the county roads system, planning review and making recommendations and comments for the County Commission on the present and future uses of public lands and natural resources as well as access and any federal and state actions affecting our area.
I was asked to run for a position on the P.R.W.I.D. Board by acquaintances who thought that with my background and experience, I might have something to contribute. As water is the life blood of our county and the major factor in determining if we can continue to grow, offering our children, grandchildren or others jobs and a place to live in Carbon County, I have decided to offer my time and services in this endeavor.
I ask for county citizens in the district to vote for me knowing that I will faithfully follow the wishes and needs of the people who elect me.
