Summit County considers study to incorporate Snyderville

Snyderville residents may have to decide which is more valuable to them — their Park City address or the luxury of having their very own city services.

The Summit County Council is considering a feasibility study about whether to incorporate the Snyderville area as a county township after Eastern Summit Planning Commissioner Tom Clyde made the proposal last week.

County officials say that such a study would hinge on how significantly the change would affect taxes — for residents in Snyderville as well as the remainder of the unincorporated county territory. Under Utah law, a county must “make whole” the losses in revenue incurred when a city becomes incorporated. Deseret News
