I have been extremely disappointed in Utah County leadership overspending these past few years, from the county commission to the Provo City Council to the Provo School District. Ever since the City Council voted to spend $600,000 on a water fountain in 2021, it seems that fiscal responsibility has taken a backseat to needless spending.

Provo School District raised taxes in part to "Build Shoreline Middle School and Rebuild Wasatch Elementary". Those schools have a combined cost of $115,567,967! Where, precisely, did the $6.7 million of taxpayer money go in those projects? And the remaining $108.8 million didn't magically fall from the sky (rather from Municipal Authority Bonds).

The Utah County commission passed an imbalanced budget today and will "look at property tax changes to collect more revenue to balance the budget."

This is a plea for fiscal sanity. Stop the overspending. Stop overtaxing your citizens.

Please place a lot of shade structures when you build the new Sports Park. The shade structure at the park and playground in Spanish Fork is an example of something that could be nice, although I would like solid roof full shade more than filtered shade. In addition, please don't just make very small structures like the kind that shades a single picnic table. Very small structures are not very useful because the angle of the sun moves the small patch so much throughout the day and the slant of the sun makes the shade patch very small at some times. A bad example of shade is the picnic table roof on the beach a ways South of Lindon boat harbor. Although small would be better than nothing.

I'm comfortable with this applicant.

Mr. Barber's credentials make him more than qualified to serve and would be a great addition to the District 2 Executive Board. I'm fully supportive of accepting his application.

I would love to evaluate this applicant, but there is absolutely no info provided, and way too many people of that name when doing a google search. Her response to "why" tells us nothing about her, except that she wants to participate. Will that participation be beneficial for the rest of us? Is she conservative? Level headed? Independent thinking? Sees possible future consequences of every decision? Can she penetrate the fluff and see the actual situation and make appropriate recommendations?

She is probably great! But without any info or links to find info, I can not evaluate her appropriateness for this position.

I live on an agriculturally zoned property. I don't think it is fair that my water bill is billed the same as someone on a tiny lot. the city is not charging Business lots the same for water as the residential lots but the agriculture lots are the same. I am trying hard to "better" my property, and need to occasionally water my pasture, watering helps get rid of weeds, and makes it useable. Property rates have gone up for larger owned property, we have to pay more for the water we need. Is the plan to force out all agriculturally zooned property by raising taxes, and charging more for water?

I am a property owner across the street (100 South) from the demolition going on between 300 West and 500 West. Where is the city in terms of decision making about the use of that property? I have heard that you had a period of time when you were taking suggestions from the community and from developers. And, if I am not mistaken, that time period recently lapsed. How can the property owners who are in close proximity to the city’s new building and the block they are making decisions about, and the people who live in close proximity, participate in this decision? Thanks!

Sounds like you are restricting people from using there property as they see fit.

Aaron Smith inside City Boundary July 5, 2023, 2:02 PM

Who would have thought this was a limitation in the first place.

Aaron Smith inside City Boundary July 5, 2023, 2:01 PM

Let them rezone.
