zap2ZAP Tax Renewal

 zap3
  • Upgrades to the pool, including a new sliding roof, new plaster, and a new air handling system, as well as the aqua-trac pictured above.
  • Funds to help extend and maintain the walking/bike path.
  • Several new mowers for the parks, cemetery and golf course. Also, golf cart paths and new carts.
  • Improvements to the City Park, and helping with the new tennis courts located at Richfield High School.
  • Provided funding for the completion of the Sevier Valley Veterans Memorial along with resident donations.
 
How will the ZAP Tax be used in the future?
  • Continued repair, replacement and expansion of existing facilities at parks, ball fields, pool, playgrounds, skate park and walking/bike path, as well as equipment to maintain these facilities.
  • Support of the development of new recreational facilities such as a proposed new city park in Northeast Richfield and a new aquatics facility.
 
Why are we re-voting this?
  • Every eight years state law requires ZAP Tax to be renewed by voters
 
How much is the tax? 
  • The ZAP Tax generates revenue for Richfield City through a one-tenth of one percent 0.1% (1/10%) sales and use tax imposed on goods and services. This tax is currently being imposed so the tax rate would not increase from its current rate.
 
Can I see some examples?
Example
Item Purchase Tax @ .10%
Grocery Bill $400 $.40 (forty cents)
Retail $150 $.15 (fifteen cents)
Car  $25,000 $25.00 (twenty five dollars)
Dining Out $40
$.04 (four cents)
Furniture $1,000 $1.00 (one dollar)

    Dear Friends: I had all kinds of things to write about this week; the very successful Trail Days celebration, a new effort to clean up neighborhoods and to make our city more beautiful; a plan to rid the community’s light and power poles of florescent yard sale posters, and many more ideas floating around in my mind. Then, we had a tragedy that puts everything into perspective.  The national epidemic of teen suicide hit home in our own community.  I feel it’s my duty to try to help in some way. I...
