Many cities are envious of our voters. In 2010 you gave us the green light to build the Recreation Center, last year over 70% of you gave the School District the thumbs up to spend $108 million dollars on new schools and yesterday you once again gave us your vote of support by approving the Recreation, Arts and Parks tax.
Thank you for your trust and confidence. The vote will give Provo City 1 penny for every $10 of sales in the City of Provo for the next 10 years. This money combined with other funds set aside for parks will allow us to replace tired and worn out facilities, improve the Provo River Trail and finish parks that have been started but lack the funds to finish.
What we have here in Provo is hard to find in government.
- Residents that are willing to invest in quality of life issues and who trust their city to deliver value for their tax dollars.
- City employees that consistently deliver value and guard the tax dollars that you have entrusted to us.
Congratulations to George Stewart, Gary Winterton, Dave Knecht, Kay Van Buren and David Harding for their council victories and a sincere thanks to all the candidates for being willing to run and be part of the process.
