Paul Nelson, KSL NewsradioTax hikes could happen if South Jordan and West Jordan form their own school district. The possibility of two significant tax increases has some Riverton residents worried.
One man said, "The cost of living is killing me right now because of gas prices, food prices, and everything in general, and taxes on top of that doesn't make it any better."
He says if he knew he could face one 18 percent spike followed by an additional 27 percent increase, he would want to keep the school district the way it is.
Others say they'll just grit their teeth and bear it for the greater good. "I kind of like having the parents have more control, and right now the school district, the way it is, the parents don't have so much control," said another man.
Plus he says he'll wait to see how high the tax increases actually become instead of just how high they could go.
