UTAH COUNTY -- The mayor of Highland has been cleared of a conflict-of-interest charge involving an irrigation project in neighboring American Fork.
According to the Deseret News, Highland Councilwoman Kathryn Schramm and former city employee Jay Haws claimed Mayor Jay Franson used his position as mayor to show favor to American Fork after the city hired his engineering firm for an irrigation project.
However, the attorney general's office said it couldn't prove the allegations were true.
Franson is currently seeking re-election. Schramm and Haws are backing his opponent.
