In 2015 the county voted down a 1/4% county sales tax increase (Prop 1) that would have been split the revenue between the county, cities, and UTA (20%, 40%, 40%) by a 59 to 41 percent margin. In Highland the margin was 68% to 32% (click here to see the official results). I was a vocal opponent to the increase largely because of UTA allocation. I described my opposition in my post “Is Utah County Prop 1 Good or Bad for Highland?”
So why the switch in attitude Mr. Mayor? Have you gone to the dark side? Good question!
