Normally, Bountiful City issues a notice of their power fund transfer in June but they were late and decided to send you a Christmas present this year.
This year they overcharged Bountiful residents, charities, churches and businesses $2.49 million. That comes on the heals of the $2/month “street light” charge and power rate increase city politicians slapped on everyone so they can maintain their pet project slush fund. That’s on top of the other tax/fee increases they’ve nailed families with.
That’s your labor/money they mayor and city council feel entitled to blow on things government has no business in like ‘ice ribbons’ and getting other cities/Davis County to cough up cash they have no business paying another city (but it keeps the back-scratching circle going…how this doesn’t amount to quid-pro-quo, I don’t know). I’ll type up a separate post on this ice ribbon scheme later.
Naturally, the power fund transfer notice includes the debunked pap about ripping you off really being a “dividend”.
Anyway, I’ve tracked this for years and will continue to do so. Here are a few of the last posts regarding this (click here for all posts on the power topic):
