Council Connects With Public at UTF Meetings

Residents present at UTF Meeting Thursday, September 26, 2013
On Thursday, September 26, the Council held a meeting with the public to discuss a proposed Utility Transportation Fund as a permanent long-term way to fund Provo’s roads.


The meeting was held in Council Chambers, and residents were able to hear a presentation from the Council about details of the proposed fund, and also share their views and ask questions.


As mentioned in previous posts, the principles governing the Utility Transportation Fund as agreed upon by the Council and the Mayor include equity/fairness, transparency for payers, and sustainability into the future.

As the Council and Mayor have discussed a comprehensive strategy to fund Provo’s roads, discussions have been held which focus on several issues, such as bonding and funding sources, road longevity, overall costs, and property tax. Those interested in reviewing the details of these discussions can check out the Mayor’s blog detailing these ideas here. The Council has also discussed these ideas here and here.


A Frequently-Asked-Question sheet about the Utility Transportation Fund can be found here.


The next meeting on the Utility Transportation Fund will be held:


Wednesday October 2, 7p in the Council Chambers 351 West Center Street, Provo 84604


A digital Town Hall will also be held online on:


Tuesday Oct. 8, 8-9p Digital Town Hall, hosted at the Council’s Blog,provocitycouncil.blogspot.com
