The Clinton City Council voted to place an opinion question on imposing a RAP Tax on the 2023 Municipal Ballot. The tax would not be imposed on food items but be a 0.1% sales tax on all other taxable items. The funds collected can only be spent on parks, recreation and cultural development, improvements, and operations. This sales tax rate means $0.01 would be collected for every $10 spent in Clinton.
The Ballot language will read as follows:
Shall Clinton City, Utah be authorized to impose a 0.1% sales and use tax to fund park improvements, recreational improvements, and cultural facilities and organizations for Clinton City?
More information, including a Voter Information Pamphlet will be forthcoming. Any member of the public who wishes to submit arguments in favor or against the RAP Tax for the Voter Information Pamphlet needs to file a request with the City Recorder's office in person at City Hall (Monday - Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm) or by emailing email@example.com. The deadline to request to write an argument is 5 pm on Monday, September 18, 2023. According to USC 59-1-1604, one registered voter will be selected to write an argument in opposition and one registered voter will be selected to write an argument in support of the proposition. The deadline to submit the argument will be September 25, 2023 at 5 pm.
A public hearing to present both arguments in favor and arguments against will be held on November 14th, 2023 at 7 pm.
