Say no to a 115% tax increase in Tooele City

Tooele City has approved a 115% tax increase for the 2018-19 fiscal year. Their reason for this is that Tooele City hasn't raised it's taxes in 36 years. So instead of raising taxes incrementally, they are going for it all at once.  This is on top of the Tooele County School District tax increase and the Tooele County Tax increase.  

Many people have voiced that with this new tax increase, they will no longer be able to afford to live here.  Many citizens understand the reason for the new taxes, as previous administrations not raising taxes and draining savings for 36 years was reckless and irresponsible. What we are asking for is an incremental tax increase of no more than 20% per year.  If Tooele City insists on increasing taxes all at once, it will cause people to sell or even lose their homes, and property values to drop.  Small businesses will also be hurt as they will be unable to absorb such a hefty tax liability so quickly. This will all ultimately result in a smaller tax base and being counter productive for Tooele City.  Please join me in asking Tooele City to be more reasonable and thoughtful of their citizens.
