Certificates of Appreciation: At a recent Tooele County Commission meeting, I had the privilege of awarding students from Stansbury High School Job Shadow Program with Certificates of Appreciation. These students have volunteered in county offices and helped with scanning, filing, vacuuming, trash collecting, etc. They have been invaluable to county employees.
The students involved were: Dallas Balfour, Andrew Butler, Trenton Erichsen, Jaymz Fox, Lindsey Norvell, Aubrey Sargent, Maxwell Stephenson, Brennan Wozab, Jake Brannon, Monica Equihua, Steven Estrada, Matthew Painter, Jerry Speck, Jordan Stewart, Thomas Griffith, Joshua Marshall, Noah Sloan, Chaunacy Davis and their teacher Scott Weber.
May Tax Sale: The May Sale that was held Thursday, May 29 brought in $736,506.79 of delinquent taxes to the county. The sale was run by Tooele County Auditor Mike Jensen and his staff. Work on the sale began in March with 312 parcels and cumulated the last Thursday in May.
Properties that have taxes in arrears for five years were included in the sale. There were five properties left by the time of the sale. One of the properties was struck off to the county as nobody bid on it. The owners of the rest of the properties had paid the back taxes or made arrangements to get them paid.
I Voted Stickers: Many of our By-Mail voters have complained because they didn’t get their “I Voted” stickers. I heard you! Working with our printer, you now get an “I Voted” sticker with each By-Mail ballot. Please wear the stickers proudly. If you need a new one, come into the office. I have plenty! You’d be surprised by how many people we have come in to vote who saw someone wearing an “I Voted” sticker and it reminded them to get out and vote. So thanks for the help.
Early Voting: Just a reminder, Early Voting begins at the Tooele County Building Tuesday, June 10 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and runs all week. Also at the Grantsville Senior Center on Wednesday, June 11 from 9:30 a.m. to noon (come and enjoy one of their delicious breakfasts after you vote).
