Just reviewed my property tax notice. I live in Olympus Hills. The tax increase on my residential property is a ridiculous 12.42 percent! The Salt Lake County Library wants a 22.4 percent increase. The county itself wants a 16.7 percent increase. Who do these government officials who request such large increase think they are? And what justification do they have?
