Life in the polygamous towns of Hildale, Utah and Colorado City, Arizona is in a state of flux.

Residents who haven't paid rent to the state-run trust which controls most of the property in the two towns are facing eviction. Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes is behind an Arizona-led effort to remove the communities' entire police force. And Warren Jeffs' former compound has been converted into a bed and breakfast.

On Wednesday at 12:15 p.m., Hildale City Attorney Blake Hamilton, resident Lorin Holm, attorney Roger Hoole and Tribune reporter Nate Carlisle join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about the uncertainty and what the changes ahead will mean for members of the communities.
