Tooele City and Grantsville City will hold Primary Elections on Aug. 15. The rest of the entities, as well as Tooele City and Grantsville City, will hold the General Election on Nov. 7.
Entities that have the exact number of candidates filed as they have offices open, have the option of canceling their elections and appointing the candidates who have filed as elected. The write-in deadline is Sept. 8. That means, except for election workers in Tooele City and Grantsville City, voters can relax until October.
The independent audit of Tooele County’s finances is in the final stages. Once the report is final, I will get it placed on the county’s website and let you know where the link is.
The certified tax rate is in the process of being set and approved by the entities in the county. Once that is completed, the county commission will approve the rate and we will move forward with the valuation notices. We’ll know at that time if there are any tax increases and how they will impact you.
If you have any questions on any of this information, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 435-843-3148.
