Millcreek voted by more than 60 percent in November to remain an unincorporated township, but those who lost haven't given up. We now have a group who want to nibble away portions of the township by annexing to Holladay. Our borders are protected by law. However residents can petition to be annexed to adjacent cities.
You'll hear different tax rates bandied about. Not all are accurate. If you sign the annexation petition, that is your vote. You don't get a chance to vote on this. They just need to find 51 percent to sign. If you have signed the petition, you can withdraw your signature by submitting a signed written withdrawal to the recorder of Holladay City. There is plenty of time to make changes later if we choose. The question is, why revisit this so soon after voters have spoken strongly against being part of a city?
