Last night, the Salt Lake County Council passed a $1.3 billion net budget for 2018 that prioritizes public safety and economic development. The budget includes no tax increase while prioritizing money to open and run two unused pods in the Oxbow Jail and other efforts to boost criminal justice work.
The 2018 budget is an example of local elected officials working across the aisle in order to fund critical services for our residents while at the same time ensuring the budget is balanced. It responds to our top responsibility as a metro government—keeping our communities safe, effectively managing the Justice Reinvestment Initiative and reducing the repeat cycle of drug buying, arrest and release.
