I agree - Millcreek is a great area.Just because the incorporation
vote failed and Millcreek only has one directly elected representative
doesn't mean WAY more involvement couldn't happen.Attend
county council mtgs. (especially at budget time). Be seen and heard at county
council mtgs. I've attended more than a few county (and
city)council mtgs. and I can say that those who bother to show up and voice some
interest in county government make a difference.
I'm so glad that East Millcreek incorporation was defeated. The
overwhelming voice of the people was heard and the plans, which would benefit a
select few, were defeated.
Who am I to tell someone in a community that isn't my own how to vote? I
live in Willow Canyon, not Millcreek, so I don't speak for Millcreek
residents. However, let me just say what a pleasure it is to have to answer to
one less bureaucracy than my Sandy City neighbors. Our federal government in
Washington DC has totally an completely overstepped its Constitutional bounds;
that is the biggest enemy to our freedom, first and foremost. However, state
governments and even municipal governments are totally out of control with their
own power hungry agendas. I will fight any future effort to incorporate my own
community, so another level of bureaucrats can tell me what to do. I encourage
other unincorporated neighborhoods, Millcreek or whoever, to do the same. Do let
these power mongers convince you that you need them to tell you what to do. You
already pay for plenty of regulators at the state and federal levels.
