To all residents of Davis County: We in Kaysville are gathering signatures to stop the city of Kaysville from taking money from the Kaysville electric fund to purchase raw ground and other items.
This practice is out of control!
The reason for this practice is that if the city raised property taxes we would have to have a “truth in taxation” hearing; however, to raise electric rates, all the city fathers do is say “we need to raise electric rates to pay for electricity” and the public, in a zombie state of mind, goes along with it.
This practice is affecting not only the citizens of Kaysville but all citizens in Davis County. I say this because all of the schools located in Kaysville are paying inflated electric rates to Kaysville to help the city run its “real estate” business.
This practice raises the electric rates and so the Davis County School District will have to raise property taxes to pay for the Kaysville City “redevelopment” program. I ask you, is this fair?
Any person 18 years of age or older who lives in Utah can get signatures to get our initiative on the November ballot. If you would like to help us stop this practice, call 801-546-2787, 801-543-1414 or 801-544-3917. Help us stop this unfair practice!
