The Cache County Council met Tuesday to address one issue only: the language on the RAPZ Tax ballot issue. County Executive Lynn Lemon said it was decided to change the wording on the ballot to make it easier to understand that the tax is not new but rather the question asks if the RAPZ Tax be renewed or re-authorized.
Lemon said he hopes county residents will support the RAPZ Tax ballot issue.
“We want to do everything we can to make sure people understand the benefits that have come to all the parks and recreational projects throughout the county and the arts organizations,” Lemon said. “Like I’ve said before, I virtually don’t think anybody has been unaffected by this. I think everybody’s benefited by it.”
Lemon said, by law, elected officials can’t spend money to promote the RAPZ Tax but he hopes people understand how much good it has done and could continue to do to help Cache Valley.
