A group of Salt Lake County residents has filed a lawsuit in 3rd District Court seeking to invalidate the outcome of the upcoming vote on a $47 million bond issue to complete major trails, develop parks and purchase land for future park development.
According to a news release from the group, its members are concerned that “bond proceeds may be diverted by the new incoming administration for projects other than the six projects proposed by outgoing Mayor Peter Corroon.”
The language of Proposition 1, which is on the general election ballot for Salt Lake County, “does not specify how bond money will be used if Proposition 1 is approved by the voters,” the news release states.
Salt Lake County voters will decide whether to raise their property taxes — $5.73 per year on a residence valued at $238,000 for the 20-year life of the bond — to develop three parks, purchase land for another and substantially complete two major trails.
