Elections: Boy, time flies when you’re having fun — especially when you’re super busy!
It’s Primary Election time for two municipalities in Tooele County. Several entities had candidates file for election this year; however, only Grantsville City and Stockton had enough candidates to require a primary.
Anyone who is a by-mail voter in Grantsville City, and everyone in Stockton, will receive their ballot next week.
If you live within Stockton, or usually vote a by-mail ballot in Grantsville City, and do not receive your ballot by July 24, please contact my office. If you live in the Grantsville City limits or the Town of Stockton limits and have not registered to vote, the last day to do so is Aug. 3. You may register in the Clerk/Auditor’s office that day until 5 p.m. in order to vote in this Primary Election.
Primary Election day will be Tuesday, Aug. 11. The polling location for Grantsville City voters will be at the Grantsville City Fire Station from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. There will be no Early Voting for the Primary Election.
Property Tax Valuation Notices: My office, the assessor’s office, the county IT department and the Utah State Tax Commission have been getting information ready for Property Tax Valuation notices. The notices will be mailed July 22.
Previously, I haven’t realized how much work goes into setting tax rates and checking them over and over again to make sure they are correct. I take my hat off to the assessor’s office and the IT department for their hard work. Only one entity, the Tooele County School District, is asking for a tax increase. Public hearings will be held July 28 and Aug. 4 at the district office, 92 Lodestone Way, Tooele. Watch for the notice in the Transcript Bulletin.
