Utah: Grand County Council looks to change form of government and remove recall (which may be disallowed under state law)

Utah's Grand County Council is looking to move to an expanded commission form of government in order to get into compliance with state law, which will remove recall elections (as well as non-partisan elections and term limits). Utah passed a state law in 2018 mandating that all counties use one of four forms of government.

It was not clear if Grand County's recall law was legal under Utah law. There was one attempt for a recall in 2018, though it failed and may have been disallowed.
