Summit County

The South Summit School Board passed a resolution to hold a bond election this November.

The bond amount is for $58.65 million, which means, if the bond is approved taxes will go up about $96 dollars a year for every $100,000 of taxable home value.

The last time South Summit held a general obligation bond was in 1988, which was the same year that the district’s current Superintendent Shad Sorenson graduated from South Summit High School.
