2020 Calendar Year Budget Process

The Salt Lake Valley Law Enforcement Service Area (SLVLESA) funds law enforcement services for its members.  Law enforcement services are provided by the Unified Police Department (UPD). SLVLESA revenues are derived from property taxes assessed within its jurisdiction. 

UPD is a June 30-July 1 fiscal year entity.  SLVLESA is on a calendar fiscal year.  UPD passed its fiscal year 2019-2020 budget on June 20, 2019.  Essentially, the cost for law enforcement services has been determined until June 2020.  

Based on the UPD budget and other administrative costs, the SLVLESA Board of Trustees (the “Board”) must prepare and adopt a budget for calendar year 2020 before the end of the year.  On September 19, 2019, the Board passed a resolution of intent to increase budgeted property tax revenues for calendar year 2020 by 3%.  A report discussing the purposes of the increase is provided above.  The proposed increase was reviewed by the Councils of all member entities and a majority of the Councils, including at least 2/3 vote of the Salt Lake County Council, approved a decision to increase budgeted property tax revenues by 3% for calendar year 2020 if made by the Board on December 19, 2019 after considering input from the truth in taxation process.

The Board adopted its tentative budget on October 17, 2019.  On November 21, 2019, the Board further reviewed and approved the tentative budget.  The tentative budget is on file for public inspection at the Unified Police Department Finance office, 3365 South 900 West, Salt Lake City, Utah and on this website. 

A public hearing is scheduled for December 19, 2019 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the County Sheriff/Unified Police Department Building, 3365 South 900 West, Salt Lake City, Utah.  The Board will take public comment on a proposed increase in budgeted property tax revenues of 3% resulting in an increase in the certified tax rate.  Following the public hearing, the Board will consider a proposed resolution adopting the increase in budgeted property tax revenues and a proposed resolution adopting the SLVLESA final budget for calendar year 2020.
