(KSL News) Draper City officials are proposing a big bump in property taxes.
The budget for the next fiscal year would increase the current rate by 90 percent, bringing in an additional $3 million in revenue to the city.
Officials say that money is needed to pay for public safety and infrastructure projects.
However, some say the projects could be funded without such a steep increase in taxes.
One city council member has proposed only raising taxes by 50 percent to soften the blow to residents.
