Wasatch County Council to Discuss RAP Tax, Proposed MIDA Liaison

Wasatch County School District

The Wasatch County Council meets on Wednesday at 3 P.M. They’ll discuss the potential for a new recreation, arts and parks (RAP) tax and an ordinance establishing a department to serve as a liaison between the county and the Military Installation Defense Authority, the body in charge of the Mayflower Resort development.


The Wasatch County Council will consider a second reading of the ordinance 21-05, which establishes the Military Installation Defense Authority department. The MIDA development encompasses at least four luxury hotels, thousands of homes and condos, a mountain resort base area and commercial projects. The building authority is independent of the county jurisdiction and can make planning decisions through its administration.  


The county council may take action and decide on a resolution to adopt a RAP tax.


UDOT representatives will be at the meeting to update the council on the Heber Valley Environmental Impact Study which will begin this summer. UDOT is looking for community input on the study. It is the beginning phase to build a bypass around the Heber Main Street commercial area.


The council may approve rules for an ordinance outlining tax sales and administrative costs to delinquent properties.


You can join the meeting via a zoom link on KPCW.org.
