The Salt Lake County Commission will conduct the third of three public hearings Wednesday, Aug. 5, on the proposed plan to change the form of county government.

With commission approval, the issue will be decided by voters in the Nov. 3 general election.The hearing will be at 7 p.m. in the County Commission chambers, 2001 S. State.

The proposal would replace the three commissioners with a nine-member, part-time elected council and a full-time elected executive. Six of the council members would be elected from districts, three at-large. The county's other full-time elected officials would not be affected.
