Plans to implement a franchise tax have been tabled until city officials can determine the impact of changes in Utah's property tax.
City Manager Ray Brown said a review of the city budget showed that Lindon will be able to meet its fiscal needs without the addition of a franchise tax. But that will only happen if public facilities are able to stay in the black and not draw from the general fund.All of Lindon's neighbors - Orem, Pleasant Grove, Lehi, American Fork and Provo - impose a franchise tax, Brown said.
Although Lindon is operating in the black, Brown said city officials have not done much to expand city resources.
"We are probably not doing all we should. There are a lot of projects that people want us to do that we have just not had the budget to do," he said.
