Wasatch Co Parks & Recreation






Jan 2017- The State Auditor’s office stopped the Parks & Rec December budget approval after we noticed the budget hearing process did not follow state law. Here’s their letter to Parks & Rec SSD: 2017- Parks & Rec AUDITOR budget notice. The Parks & Rec Dept had no budget for a few weeks, and had to re- schedule a budget hearing correctly. In the meantime, the Parks & Rec Director had to get approval for each expenditure from the State Auditors Office, and only necessary transactions were approved. 

12-7-16 – PARKS AND RECREATION 2017 BUDGET HEARING –  We looked everywhere (County, Parks & Rec, and the Public Meeting Notice websites) and could not find a copy of the budget for you to review prior to this budget hearing. Here are the 2 videos of the discussion: Wasatch Taxpayers YouTube page   ***Then after the hearing this budget shows up: 2017- Parks & Rec budget  (notice Dec 21, 2016 date- 2 weeks past original Dec 7th hearing)
