Local postmaster made sure ballots got to the right place

The 2017 Elections have been put away and the winners will be sworn in after the first of the year. But before that occurs, I want to acknowledge Ronald Dalton, our Tooele City Postmaster.  He made sure ballots that came into the Tooele City Post Office made it to my office. He even hand carried some to my office on Election Day. That’s great service!

Speaking of elections, the “Notice of Election” for 2018 that was in the newspaper in November can also be seen on the clerk’s website. It lists the offices that will be open, the requirements for candidate petitions, and other pertinent information. There is also a candidate manual for those who are considering to run for office next year, as well as signature requirements. Just follow this link:  http://www.co.tooele.ut.us/clerk/Elections.htm.  It should answer most of your questions, but if you have more, please contact me at mgillette@tooeleco.org or 435-843-3148.

There were many people who applied for their property tax abatements after the Sept. 1 deadline. The Tooele County Commission, acting as the Board of Equalization, approved the list of late abatement applications in its Dec. 19 commission meeting. To receive the abatement refund, please contact the County Treasurer’s office, either by email at aleonelli@tooeleco.org or phone at 435-843-3190.

The County has a number of board openings for which we are seeking applications. To see a list of the openings, please follow http://www.co.tooele.ut.us/clerk/information.htm. It lists all of the openings, the deadline for applying and an application. This is a great way to get involved in your community!

If you have any questions on any of these topics, please contact me at mgillette@tooeleco.org or 435-843-3148.
