MAYORS ASSOCIATION HAS RETAINED A LOBBYIST

The Conference of Salt Lake Valley Mayors may not be an incorporated entity, but records show they have retained a lobbyist.

Former Utah House Speaker Craig Moody included the conference of mayors on his list of 35 organizations represented. The list comes from the records of the lieutenant governor's office.Conference president Randy Fitts, mayor of South Salt Lake, initially said Wednesday that the group doesn't have a lobbyist. Fitts added that the 3-year-old mayors association is mostly working to establish bylaws to give it "credibility" and form.

"We've hired him (Moody) but we haven't paid him yet. He's worked on some things for various cities and the things the conference has elected to go to. We're still in the negotiating stage with him," Fitts said.

Moody was unavailable for comment at press time.
