(KSL News) Salt Lake County voters will decide in November whether to approve a sales-tax hike for road and transit costs.

On the ballot-- an $895-million property tax bond will be replaced with a quarter-cent sales tax increase.

However, council members are concerned one or more Trax lines may not be funded. That's because under the bill passed by the Legislature, transit projects now compete with roads for funding from the sales tax initiative.

Those projects include the four TRAX lines, commuter rail and general road improvements.
