OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Weber County voters will be asked next year if they want to move forward with a study that will look into the idea of changing the county's three-commissioner form of government that some critics have called insufficiently representative.

The Standard-Examiner reports Weber County commissioners unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday agreeing to put the question to voters.

Weber County Elections Director Ryan Cowley says voters will be asked in November 2019 whether they want to go ahead with a study that will explore alternative forms of county government.

Oscar Mata with Weber County Forward says if voters approve the measure, a special body will create a seven-member committee that would carry out the inquiry.

Any proposed change to county government coming from the study would then be put to the voters, per the process.
