Juab County has applied to the state for formation of an enterprise zone.

Glenn Greenhalgh, Juab County economic development director, said the application has been received at the state level and is being given serious attention. Greenhalgh said Gov. Norm Bangerter has announced plans to review applications during August."The application made by Juab County has every chance of being approved," said Greenhalgh.

Creation of enterprise zones was recently approved by the Legislature. Greenhalgh said the enterprise zone represents a package offered by the state to qualifying areas allowing tax exemptions and job or tax credits.
