Juab County commissioners recently signed a gas-line franchise agreement.

Randy Freston, Juab County engineer, said he has read the agreement. "I think this agreement is about as refined as it is going to get," he said, adding that possible future amendments could be made through the cooperative agreement.Golden Mangelson, project director, recommended the commission sign the agreement. The County Commission will also need to approve a resolution and later approve the agreement, he said.

Mangelson said he would like Don Eyre Jr., Juab County attorney, to rework the resolution before the commission signs the document.

Nephi will be the lead entity in the agency, which includes representatives from Nephi, Mona, Levan and Juab counties.

Mangelson said the project - to bring natural gas to the east part of the county - is progressing according to schedule, with the distribution lines to be in place this summer.
