Not every member of the Morgan County Council agrees with putting a transit tax on the ballot, or how the county should fund road repair and maintenance.
“I am not sure if I am in favor of a transit tax,” Morgan County Council Chairman Logan Wilde said.
The county has been discussing raising sales tax to fund transit, perhaps through an agreement with the Utah Transit Authority (UTA). That tax must be approved before an additional tax meant to provide funds to repair and maintain county roads could be added to the sales tax increase.
Wilde said he is concerned with the view that passing the transit tax is the only way that could lead to funding county roads.
When he reads the fine print about sales tax for funding roads, Wilde said there are too many stipulations.
