Proponents of changes in Kaysville government were struck with another blow Monday, but apparently aren’t giving up their fight. The Davis County Clerk’s office, after consulting with the offices of the state Attorney General and the Lieutenant Governor, determined that insufficient signatures could be verified to put three initiative petitions on the ballot in November. “We very thoroughly examined these petitions,” said Pat Beckstead, election director for the county. “We double checked (election law) and we had a second person look at them and make sure that we were accurate.”
