Many people voted against Millcreek City rather than voting to continue as part
of the unincorporated county. Many didn't feel any sense of community with
the proposed boundaries, and feared what the actual cost of a new city would be.
They feared it was going to have higher taxes. We believe the annexation to
Holladay addresses those concerns and more.There are many reasons
our group filed now to be annexed. The urgency is created by the actions of
other efforts to defect from the county. One group file a notice to have our all
of Millcreek Township annexed into Salt Lake City, another group is actively
collecting signatures to mount another effort to Incorporate Millcreek Township
in 2014, and another group is trying to annex their area into Sandy.We would welcome any information showing our tax rate data to be incorrect.
Ms. Smiths claims we believe are wrong, but we are open to correction if she has
data to support her claims. Our data comes from actual tax bills for 2012.Google Citizens for Holladay for a complete discussion of our
efforts.John BradshawCitizens for Holladay
