The Uintah County Clerk Auditor has confirmed that his office received a Referendum application on Thursday regarding the 0.3% Sales and Use Tax increase for public safety approved by the Uintah County Commissioners on Tuesday. The Utah State Legislature approved the implementation of the tax in the last legislative session to allow Counties to collect 0.3% sales tax for public safety services and Uintah County intends to use the revenue to support the Sheriff’s Office and Uintah County Jail. A Referendum is a petition to put a new local law to a vote of the people for either approval or rejection. Clerk Auditor Mike Wilkins confirmed that a Referendum application has been received and it has been given to legal for review. A signature gathering process is among the steps required before the Referendum could make it to the ballot.
