Utah Association of Counties Continued Video Development

BWP, an advertising agency in Salt Lake City, continues to work with The Utah Association of Counties. We work with the UAC on their marketing, advertising, branding and production of a series of video profiles highlighting individual Utah Counties elected officials. The video development process has been our focus as The Utah Association of  Counties hopes to highlight how county government works for citizens as well as demonstrate some of the programs being developed by local county government officials via these videos. This is our latest video project for UAC and we’re happy to introduce Robert Dekker, the Millard County Sheriff.

Millard County Sheriff, Robert Decker

Robert Dekker wanted to be in law enforcement since high school. So he left college in 1973 to go to work for the Delta City Police Department. Then in 1981 he began working for the Millard County Sheriff’s department and he’s been there ever since.

As President of the Utah Sheriff’s Association; the professional and educational organization dedicated to the protection and peace of the lives and property of the citizens of Utah—Sheriff Dekker is at the forefront of law enforcement in Utah.

But the job of county sheriff has evolved over the years adding new responsibilities. In addition to keeping the peace, managing ambulance services, and overseeing search and rescue, county sheriffs have been left with a daunting challenge; supervising a growing number of inmates in need of treatment for mental illness.

Born and raised in Millard County, Robert Dekker, is just one of nearly 300 of Utah’s elected county government officials, committed to serving the citizens of his county.

The Utah Hive Pass Media Campaign continues to run on Buses and Trax across Salt Lake City. BWP, a Utah based marketing company,  works together with the Salt Lake City Department of Transportation on the “I Ride With Hive” advertising campaign. Our creative agency responsibilities include branding, advertising, marketing strategy, brand identity, campaign development and execution, media, print design, digital design and strategic consultation all for promoting the Hive Pass Program. The Hive Pass is a program Salt Lake City offers to all city residents with the goal of making transit more affordable and accessible. Current Hive Pass holders love it!  They have been able to reduce the number of cars in their households now that they have a pass to travel with.  Hive Passes can now be purchased for any number of consecutive months.  One month, two months, five months to a year, whatever works for you.  With the colder weather and snowfall coming to Salt Lake City it is important to limit our driving and help our air quality during peak inversion months. Utah is nationally known for its poor air quality, the more people riding transit is good for everyone, lightening the loads of car travel in our neighborhoods, cleaning the air, and reducing household costs for transportation.

Corrie Forsling, Summit County Auditor Video

The Utah Association of Counties contracted BWP to provide advertising, marketing, branding and a series of video profiles of individual elected county officials. UAC hopes to highlight how county government works for citizens as well as demonstrate some of the programs being developed by local county government officials via these videos. We’re happy to introduce Corrie Forsling, Summit County Auditor.

Dedicated to Helping the Citizens of Her County

Along with her accounting skills and other talents, what makes Corrie Forsling great as a treasurer is an attitude of service and her commitment to the citizens of Summit County. After she was elected Treasurer, Corrie saw an opportunity to provide a new service to the citizens of Summit County.

 Email Tax Notices Offer Better Service

Government services are budgeted to function at the lowest possible cost to tax payers. So when a new service is introduced, it can create more work. But Corrie and her team developed a system to send property tax notices both in paper form, as mandated by state code, and as an email service, at no additional cost to tax payers. and watch other elected officials videos.
