County Updates


Box Elder's own, Representative Lee Perry, has retired from the Utah Highway Patrol. Thank you Lee for your dedication to public service!! 

Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Lee Perry recently retired after 31 years with the Utah Highway Patrol.
The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), Box Elder County, and the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) are pleased to announce that Procter & Gamble (P&G) will expand its operations in Box Elder County, creating up to 221 jobs in the next 20 years. Capex for the project is estimated at $310,000,000.

"This expansion will create hundreds of new high-paying manufacturing jobs in Box Elder County,” said Val Hale, GOED’s executive director. “This is a big win for Utah as we continue to help build our rural counties and create more jobs in these areas.” 

Procter & Gamble is a multinational consumer goods corporation headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. P&G has operations in approximately 70 countries worldwide and currently operates a manufacturing facility in Box Elder County that opened in 2011.

“We continue to greatly value our partnership with GOED and Box Elder County,” said Joe Tomon, plant manager of the P&G’s Box Elder facility. “Our expansion is a result of consumer and customer demand, and we couldn’t be more pleased to meet that demand with the excellent workforce of Box Elder County.”

The GOED Board has approved a post-performance tax credit not to exceed $4,191,954.

"Procter & Gamble continues to be a great employer here in Box Elder County. We are excited and grateful they have chosen to expand and bring more high-paying jobs to our residents. They are a great asset and partner in our community," said Box Elder County Commissioner Jeff Hadfield.

P&G currently sells products in 180 countries with brands like Always, Bounty, Charmin, Crest, Dawn, Downy, Gillette, Head & Shoulders, Olay, Oral-B, Pampers, Pantene, Tide, and Vicks.

“Procter & Gamble has been a steady growth agent in Utah. The company started production here in 2011 and invested again in spring 2018, and continues today to expand its state-of-the-art facility,” said Theresa A. Foxley, president and CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Utah. “With wages above the county average, these are high-quality manufacturing jobs for Box Elder County.”

Volunteers Needed for Annual Box Elder, Cache, and Rich Counties Homeless Count
The annual statewide count of people experiencing homelessness will be held Jan. 23-25. Volunteers are needed in Box Elder, Cache, and Rich Counties to help survey people overnight on Jan. 23, 24 and 25 to find out where they slept on the night of Jan. 22, providing an in-depth single-night look at homelessness in Utah.

The goals of the count – known as the Point-in-Time Count – are to find individuals and families experiencing unsheltered homelessness (living on the streets or in cars or places not meant for human habitation) and gather information to connect them with available services, help policymakers set benchmarks to measure progress toward ending homelessness and help plan services and programs to appropriately address local needs.

Volunteers work in teams to briefly interview individuals in areas known for homelessness, including local trails, parks and businesses, and to provide gift cards, care items, and community resources. 

A volunteer training will be held Jan. 16 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on USU’s campus in Huntsman Hall rm. 328. If you cannot attend the training in person, you can complete the training online, details to follow. Volunteer shifts are available during the early morning hours of Jan 23, 24, and 25 from 4:00 a.m. to 6 a.m. To sign up to volunteer, go to https://forms.gle/rq2PFFtJywBYm8CC6
