(Salt Lake County) County Council learned from Doug McDonald, an economic consultant, on October 16th, 2012 that "while the local economy is as good as it’s been since the Great Recession hit, trouble is looming".

"Those threats account partly for projections that Salt Lake County’s economy,... will slow next year along with the rest of the country.

He projected taxable sales in 2013 could dip to 6.6 percent next year after finishing between 8 and 9 percent this year, the best since the financial system collapsed in the fall of 2008. But if the economic system sustains another shock in the next few months, next year’s sales tax gains could be trimmed to 2 percent or less.

2 percent or less! Now is NOT a time to experiment with an unknown, unproven, group for an inexperienced government. Remember too that this is a report for the entire County and Millcreek is much lower growth. Vote NO to incorporation!

Ms. Strong -- you are in left field without facts to support your assertions. A read of your PIC financial disclosure confirms there is no shortage of funding for the distribution of your group’s propaganda. Your self-serving analysis is so full of holes and discrepancies – it would receive a failing grade if submitted for any professional review. It is filled with distortions and fact-less assumptions. No banker would take this study serious—it is not in compliance with State code. What scares folks that will vote NO is this type of unprofessional work product and those that embrace this nonsense as something remotely close to reality. We in East Mill Creek, Mount Olympus, Canyon Rim and Millcreek are extremely happy in our current situation—your little minions are wrong and scary. Take your garbage elsewhere.
