County Mayors Set To Discuss & Vote for UTA EQUAL SHARING OF TAX PAYMENTS at MAG Meeting This Week -
This week at our monthly MAG - Mountainland Association of Governments meeting the discussion on the agenda is how to 'share' our tax funds that subsidize UTA. No more people in Utah County only paying for Utah County, now we must share in paying for Salt Lake County and vice versa. They are going to share the taxes to help prop up UTA and Mass Transit all over Utah.
Did you know we currently subsidize with our tax funds 85% and higher on everyone that rides a bus, front runner train, Trax, Trolley, and bike path/trail? Those who ride are only paying 15% of their ticket, tax payers front the balance.
UTA is in $2 billion dollar bond debt and we keep being forced to pay tax funds to this giant government bureaucracy.
This November 2015, a new 4th quarter cent sales tax will be on the ballot for us to vote NO or yes on and most will go to UTA and Mass Transit. They are marketing it as ROAD funds, but it's really MASS TRANSIT bill.
I will keep you posted on what happens during this meeting on Thursday, October 1, 2015 and let you know if the mayors of our County vote FOR or AGAINST this Equity of Taxes for UTA.
