Despite Utah County voters overwhelming rejecting Proposition 1 in 2015, officials in Pleasant Grove are ignoring the direct voice of their constituents and trying to impose a mandatory, monthly fee to pay for roads.
The fee, (just another way to say “tax”), would be forced upon every household and business in the entire city, which would generate an additional $1 million per year.
Remember, a fee is a tax.
This utility fee would be nearly $60 annually for every household and more than $700 for every business, both big and small, in the city, regardless of the level of usage of city roads.
Your Taxpayers Association questions the legality of a city imposing a fee on households and businesses to pay for city roads.
The public hearing on the new road fee will be tonight, Tuesday, June 7th at 6:00 p.m. at the Pleasant Grove City Council Chambers, located at 86 East 100 South in Pleasant Grove.
