Tuesday's election defeat of a $5.7 million bond proposal was a major victory for opponents, and their attack on City Hall has just begun.
Next will be a campaign to rescind a 40 percent city property tax increase and a 6 percent utility franchise tax, both approved by the City Council last summer, said Lawrence Hunt, a former city councilman and leader of a group called the Concerned Citizens of West Jordan."We have only taken our first step toward a city government in which we can all have confidence," reads a statement from the group Hunt said he prepared.
Hunt has asked to be included on the City Council's agenda soon so he can discuss the property and franchise taxes. "We don't want to go in there and gloat, we want to work with them," he said.
