  • FARMINGTON (Davis County Clipper) — No, Davis County is not being lumped with New Orleans in terms of needing any sort of recovery bailout.

    But a resolution signed by the Davis County Commission could clear the way for new federal Build America Bonds.

    That was a “pit stop” after 10 years working for the state and six years for Davis County, she told the Davis County Community of Promise group recently.

    If the bonds are sold, Intermountain could spend up to $22 million in Layton simply because a public hearing was held in Davis County.
