The County Seat's Podcast
About This Show
The County Seat is a weekly television program that studies the role of County Government and explores the difficult issues facing county leadership in a frank and straightforward conversation. The County Seat was launched six years ago as a solution to counties not being able to reach and engage their constituents through normal media channels. They were equally concerned with their needs getting overlooked by legislators, as well as state and federal agencies. As the issues counties grapple with have become more complicated, information has become simplified and sensationalized; which has turned out to be a poor process for discussing public policy. The County Seat focuses on the important local issues in a longer format rather than the 90-second news story, aimed at beginning a dialogue. This allows viewers to jump in and learn about County Government without running for office. The County Seat is broadcast Saturday Evenings at 11:00 & Sunday Mornings at 8:30 on the ABC affiliate out of Salt Lake City, UTAH (KTVX) and re-aired on local cable channels across the state.

The county auditor provides a number of fiscal-related services both to the state and the county. You've probably heard of the auditor's office when you received your tax valuation notice in July or your tax bill in October but people don't know a lot about what a county Auditor does. One could assume that they audit but their job goes beyond administering property taxes and doing performance audits on the county. The most interesting function of the auditor's office is their role in watching for fraud, waste, and abuse of tax dollars.
