The City Council is tasked with representing residents in prioritizing a City's services within the bounds of its financial means. One of its core priorities is ensuring public safety, a major part of which is maintaining a quality police force. To be able to do so in coming years, the City believes the law enforcement property tax entity, the Herriman City Safety Enforcement Area (HCSEA), will need an increased tax rate.
In July, Herriman property owners will receive a mailed or emailed notice showing a proposed rate increase for the HCSEA as well as some other entities that Herriman City doesn't control. The City Council has voted to send a notice for an HCSEA increase of up to 15% but wishes to consider public feedback before a final decision is made on August 22, 2023.
The webpage linked below offers information and answers to frequently asked questions to help residents stay informed as they provide feedback.
A Truth in Taxation hearing will be held Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. at the Herriman City Hall for the proposed increase.
