Vernal City Council approved amendments to the interlocal agreement
between Uintah County, Vernal City and the Uintah Transportation Special
Service District regarding operation of the Vernal Regional Airport. In
presenting the amendments, Vernal City Manager Ken Bassett explained that
the original agreement lacked specific language of how the Transportation
District was to make payments, specifically to the airport project engineer
GDA. The amendments also state how payments are to be made: The engineering
firm is to bill the Transportation District. The District will make the
payment and then turn invoices and the payment transaction over to Uintah
County. The County will then apply for federal funding reimbursement that
will then be given to the Transportation District for what was paid. Vernal
City Council approved all proposed amendments to the interlocal agreement.
