Letter: SL County should let people live where they want
First Published Feb 11 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Feb 11 2014 01:01 am

Last month, by a 6-3 vote, the Salt Lake County Council chose to protest the Olympus Hills annexation petition. In so doing the council failed eighth-grade math, chose to waste taxpayer money to fund a needless study, made a very loud statement that it rejects self-determination and deliberately poked the absolute majority of homeowners in the eye.

And they wonder why we want to leave the caretaker county government structure?

We know now that our departure has no significant impact on the balance of the township. The annexation area is about 5 percent of Millcreek Township. If the area is 20 percent revenue positive (hard to imagine from a completely residential area), the impact to the rest of the township would be 1 percent. The most likely scenario is that our departure would have no financial impact at all.

It’s time for the county to stop expensive delays and let the people of the county live where they want to.
