Karen Mayne said of the nine months she spent crafting a bill that could help resolve 40 years of unproductive political squabbling over municipal boundaries within Salt Lake County. “And now we have a beautiful baby to show for it,” the West Valley City Democrat said Friday as she unveiled a third revision of SB216, which Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams pulled together in lengthy negotiations this week. This latest version was comely enough that both supporters...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Senate Business and Labor Committee members, and even citizens opposed to the overall concept, accepted county Mayor Ben McAdams’ pledge to revise SB216 to include provisions that could lessen resistance. McAdams had asked the committee to move the bill forward, concerned that if it did not make it to the Senate by ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Although he felt he had enough votes on the Senate Business and Labor Committee to get SB216 to the Senate floor, McAdams had the measure continued until Thursday’s committee meeting so he could talk to a roomful of opponents. “It’s not our intent to push this through over your objections,” McAdams said of the bill, sponsored by Sen....</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

How about “Magcopperkearncreek”? Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams has a plan to create what is essentially a city out of all the remaining unincorporated burgs in the county, an entity with no uniting force other than to prevent further encroachments and defections. It’s more of an act of desperation than incorporation, but the mayor is right that something needs to be done. The balkanization of Salt Lake County has been a decades-long process, and McAdams is...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

As the mayor held a news conference Wednesday in the County Council chambers, announcing the imminent filing of a bill designed to end perpetual bickering about the borders and governance of unincorporated areas, Millcreek incorporation proponent MaryAnn Matheson Strong was there passing out her own news release. It lambasted the plan as “Patchwork City” and accused McAdams of attempting ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
