Voter Information Pamphlet and Public Meeting: Proposition #7 PARC Tax
On November 7, 2017, Cedar Hills voters will have the responsibility to vote on an opinion question entitled Proposition #7, which asks whether or not the city should impose a sales and use tax for cultural arts, recreational, and botanical organizations or facilities (PARC Tax).
A Voter Information Pamphlet has been prepared to help you better understand the issue. It contains arguments for and against the proposition, along with the official text and initial fiscal impact statement. This pamphlet also contains information regarding voter registration, voting by mail, and the voter service center.
Please take the opportunity to study this pamphlet, so that when you vote you will be able to make a sound, intelligent and informed choice on the issue.
According to Utah State Code, the city must allow in a public meeting equal time for a presentation of the arguments in favor and against the ballot proposition. This agenda item was addressed at the October 17 City Council meeting.
Vote-by-mail ballots will be mailed out 21 days before each election day. Ballots cannot and will not be forwarded by the postal service. All ballots that are determined undeliverable are returned to the county clerk’s office. If you have not received your ballot within two weeks after they are mailed, please call the Utah County Clerks Elections Division office.
When Must the Ballot Be Returned?
Ballots must be mailed and clearly postmarked before Election Day or placed in the ballot box at the Cedar Hills city office building by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
