“Phil has been a great public servant,” said Kerry Gibson, Weber County Commissioner and president of the Utah Association of Counties. “He’s proven his love for the citizens he represents and is committed to standing for something his colleagues across the state support and believe in.”
Every year since 1998, nine elected county officials are selected from each of the elected offices held in county government across the state, including assessors, auditors, attorneys, clerks, recorders, treasurers, sheriffs, and surveyors.
Those selected will be honored at the UAC convention in November.
Selections are made from a vote among county commissioners at their fall conference. The recognition is based on the work officials do on behalf of their county and with fellow county commissioners during the year.
Lyman, who took office in 2011, joins current San Juan County Surveyor Sam Cantrell, who also received recognition this year as county surveyor of the year.
