Tooele Transcript Bulletin – News in Tooele, Utah

March 28, 2013
Commission agendas will be posted differently

In the past, Tooele County has paid to have the Commission Meeting agenda printed in the Transcript-Bulletin. With the financial situation at the county, the commissioners and the newspaper have come up with a solution. Rather than print the entire agenda, a notice will be printed that states:

“The agenda for the Tooele County Commission meeting to be held April 2, 2013 will be posted on the county website at Click on Tooele County Commission Meetings and on the public notice website of Copies of the agenda may also be obtained at the County Clerk’s Office, County Health Department, Transcript-Bulletin, Tooele County Senior Center, Grantsville City Hall, Grantsville Senior Center and Wendover Senior Center.”

If you have other locations you’d like to have the agenda available, or would like to have a copy of the agenda emailed to you, please email me at

State law requires that the agenda be sent to the newspaper 24 hours before the meeting, but does not require that the county pay to have it published. You will be able to access the agenda the Thursday before each commission meeting at the websites listed above. Meetings are held the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 7 p.m.
