Would you like improvements to our community? It’s possible for about $3.33/mo. Many community members have noticed the improvements to the recreational facilities in Tabiona and Neola. It is possible, and easy, to do the same for all of us in Altonah, Altamont, Arcadia, Boneta, Bluebell, Mountain Home, Mt. Emmons and Talmage. We can fund community parks, rodeo grounds, celebrations and youth programs for approximately $3.33/mo per household.
It’s really easy. You just need to Vote YES.
We did the same as Neola and Tabiona and have created a special service district with a board which can levy taxes. This administrative board will establish an annual budget (for all our improvements) and set the tax rate, NOT to exceed $0.0004 per dollar of taxable property. That would mean that if a property’s taxable value is $200,000 the annual tax could be no more than $40.00 per year. With that money, we will be able to fund all approved projects!
We won’t have to solely count on volunteers and donations for our community.
Because of recent state law changes for increased transparency, if our service district wishes to levy a tax, it must be put to a vote by everyone in that created district. Duchesne County has already created our Upper Community Recreation District which includes Altonah, Altamont, Arcadia, Boneta, Bluebell, Mountain Home, Mt. Emmons and Talmage; in addition to a separate district for the Duchesne areas. Once you vote yes, we can start improvements!
During the General Election in November 2020, vote YES for this tax levy.
It will provide financial support, organization, consistency, and accountability for the places, programs and events that currently come and go due to lack of funds. This is the way forward to improve and enhance facilities and programs in our Upper Country Community. A public hearing and budget review will be held before the vote on Monday, September 21st. The location will be announced on social media and on our website. For more details and updates, go to our Facebook page “Upper Community Recreation District” or this webpage often for updates!
