SLC voters asked to approve $87 million bond for road repairs

SALT LAKE CITY — Leaders already imposed one tax increase this year. Now, they’re asking voters to approve another one for roads funding in November.

Salt Lake’s City Council wants an $87 million property tax bond to pay for street repairs. That’s on top of the approved $33 million sales tax hike for roads, police and affordable housing.

Salt Lake County imposed its own $58 million sales tax hike for transportation projects this year.

The city council cited a Y2Analytics poll that showed 79% support for November’s bond.

One critic told leaders these increases hurt his chances of buying a home in Salt Lake.
