In 1980, when our current city manager was hired, an unlawful practice began. Under his leadership, Kaysville City began using electrical funds to purchase raw ground for speculation and other purposes which were unrelated to the service of delivering electricity to patrons of the Kaysville Electric Company.
At this point in time, Kaysville City has used almost $25,000,000 in electric funds on purchases which are for “other than support of the electric fund.”
The findings of the state auditor dated September 25, 2013 state that “Fees charged for a specific purpose represent an implied agreement with the ratepayers and should be used only for activities related to that purpose. If an activity does not directly relate to the business of the underlying enterprise fund, then it should be considered a de facto transfer.”
What that means is that all property and/or other expenditures made by not only the current city council and mayor, but all of the city councils and mayors since 1980 were breaking the law. We have tried to get honest people elected to the city council and it seems like every time we get one on the council, they fall in lock-step with the city manager and financial officer.
This is the reason why we want Prop 5 approved and all citizens of Kaysville should vote for the proposition. This will break 33 years of Kaysville City breaking the law.
I urge all citizens of Kaysville to get registered to vote and vote for Prop 5 and only those people running for office who support Prop 5. That is why you should not vote for the current mayor, Gil Miller and Jared Taylor. The incumbents have compounded the laws that were broken and contained in the auditor’s report.
