Changing the Effective Date Stated in the Proclamation of September 10, 2002
Regarding the Annexation into Emery County of

WHEREAS, on September 10, 2002, I issued a proclamation stating the outcome of a vote to annex into Emery County the portion of the City of Green River now in Grand County and stating the effective date of the annexation;

WHEREAS, all the requirements of the annexation have occurred, and the annexation awaits only the passage of time before it takes effect;

WHEREAS, the new law has today taken effect upon my signature;

WHEREAS, the effective date of the annexation, as stated in the September 10 proclamation, does not agree with the newly amended law, which now requires that the effective date of annexations occur on January 1 of the year following the governor's proclamation;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Michael O. Leavitt, Governor of the State of Utah, pursuant to the requirements of Title 17, Chapter 2 of the Utah Code, ANNEXATION TO COUNTY, as amended in the 2002 Sixth Special Session, proclaim as follows:

The proclamation of September 10, 2002, remains in effect, except that the annexation shall take effect January 1, 2003.
