It was a busy day at the Washington County Surveyor’s office in Salt Lake City.
As part of the construction of the Utah Highway 101 interchange in Ogden, the office was being used by a contractor to conduct the county’s land survey.
The surveyor’s work was done on land that was owned by the county.
But the county didn’t want its surveyor to go on site to survey land owned by anyone else.
So the county was looking to get rid of him.
We didn’t like it.
So we had a conversation about that.
I was going to take him off the survey.
And he said, ‘I’m going to go to work.’
So he came out of the office, I said, OK.
I went to his office and he said that he was going back to work and I said OK.
I said, he’s got a lot of work to do and he’s not going to be there.
He said, I’m not going anywhere, and I don’t have a choice.
So I went back to my car and drove home.
I thought it was a terrible idea and I decided to call the sheriff.
He called and said, we’ve got a situation with a land survey orchard.
He said, well, if you’re going to do it, you better be on time.
So he called me back and said I had to come to work at 6:00.
That was it.
I had never seen him go through that much paperwork and it was pretty embarrassing.
The Sheriff’s Office has since made a special team to make sure no one else is allowed to come in and do work on that land.
If you have questions or need help, you can call the Sheriff’s office at 435-444-3222.
