 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT on December 28, 2011, the Board of County
Commissioners of Carbon County, Utah, adopted a Resolution declaring
that the public health, convenience, and necessity require the
addition of services to be provided by the Carbon County Recreation

additional services proposed to be included are set forth below.  The
Resolution also requires that a public hearing be held on the proposed
addition of services to be provided by the District.  Said hearing
shall be held in the chambers of the Carbon County Board of
Commissioners, at 120 East Main Street, Price, Utah, at 5:30 p.m., on
March 7, 2012.  
 
 DESCRIPTION OF THE BOUNDARIES OF THE DISTRICT
 
 	The District shall retain the same boundaries as present; to wit,
all of the unincorporated areas within the boundaries of Carbon
County, State of Utah, as of November 23, 1988.
 
 DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED ADDITIONAL SERVICES
 
 	In addition to the services currently provided by the District, the
Resolution proposes to authorize the District to provide the following
additional services:
 
 	1. Garbage collection and disposal;
 	2. Fire protection, including (a) emergency medical services,
ambulance services, and search and rescue services, if fire protection
service is also provided; (b) Firewise Communities programs and the
development of community wildfire protection plans; and (c) the
receipt of federal secure rural school funds as provided under Utah
Code Annotated Section 51-9-603 for the purposes of carrying out
Firewise Communities programs, developing community wildfire
protection plans, and performing emergency services, including
firefighting on federal land and other services;
 	3. Consolidated 911 and emergency dispatch;
 	4. Animal shelter and control;
 	5. Flood control;
 	6. Receiving federal mineral lease funds under Title 59, Chapter 21,
and expending those funds to provide construction and maintenance of
public facilities, traditional governmental services, and planning, as
a means for mitigating impacts from extractive mineral industries.
 
 	If such additional services are added, the Special Service District
would be able to enter into contracts, and to purchase, maintain,
operate, acquire and construct such improvements and property, both
real and personal, as may be necessary to facilitate these additional
services.
 
 TAXES, FEES, AND CHARGES
 
 	Pursuant to the provisions of the Utah Special Services District
Act, set forth in Utah Code Annotated Section 17D, Chapter 1, et seq.,
if the newly proposed services set forth herein are added to the
services to be provided by the District, the District may impose fees
and charges to pay for all or a part of the new services.  It may also
annually levy taxes upon all taxable property within the District to
provide the new services, and may issue bonds for the acquisition
and/or construction of facilities or systems to provide said services;
provided, however, that said levy to provide said services or to repay
said bonds, must be authorized and approved by a majority of the
qualified electors of the District at an election for that purpose.  
 
 PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED ADDITION OF SERVICES TO THE  SPECIAL
SERVICE DISTRICT
 
 	On March 7, 2012, at the hour of 5:30 p.m., at 120 East Main Street,
Price, Utah, the Board of County Commissioner of Carbon County, Utah
will hold a public hearing to consider the addition of the above
described services to be provided by the Carbon County Recreation and
Transportation Special Service.  At the public hearing, the Board of
County Commissioners shall give full consideration to each written
protest filed, and shall hear and consider each person desiring to be
heard.  The Board of County Commissioners may continue the hearing
from time to time.
 
 PROTESTS
 
 	Any interested person may protest any or all of the additional
services proposed to be provided by the District. 
 
 Oral Protests
 
 	Oral protests may be made at the public hearing as set forth above. 
However, oral protests are not the same as written protests and are
not aggregated with or counted as adequate protests for the purpose of
defeating a resolution or ordinance to add services to the District.
 
 Written Protests
 
 	Written protests may be filed with the Board of County Commissioners
by submitting the same to the following address:
 
 Board of Carbon County Commissioners
 c/o Robert P. Pero, Carbon County Clerk
 120 East Main, Price, UT  84501
 
 	Written protests must be submitted no later than 15 days after the
date of the public hearing set forth above.  Written protests must be
signed by the owner of real property within the District.  All written
protests must explain why the owner is protesting, and must specify
which new service is being protested against. Written protests may be
withdrawn at any time before the County approves by ordinance or
resolution the addition of services to the District.  Having withdrawn
a protest, a person may cancel the withdrawal until 30 days after the
public hearing.
 
 	Any protest signed by a person acting in a representative capacity
for an owner must indicate the person's representative capacity and
the name of the owner the person represents. The person shall also
provide documentation accompanying the protest that reasonably
substantiates the person's representative capacity. Where title to any
one parcel of real property is held in the name of more than one
person, the protest must be signed by owners representing a majority
ownership interest in that parcel.  Where a parcel of real property is
owned by joint tenants or tenants by the entirety, the protest must be
signed by 50% of the number of owners of that parcel. A duly appointed
personal representative may sign a protest on behalf of a deceased
owner.
 
 	If owners of property within the District representing more than 33%
of the taxable value of all taxable property within the District
timely file written protests to any proposed additional service to be
provided by the District, or if 33% of the registered voters within
the District timely file written protests to any proposed additional
service to be provided by the District, the Board of Commissioners may
not add to the District the service for which the protests were filed.
 
 	Within 30 days after the approval of an ordinance or resolution
adding additional services to be provided by the District, a person
who timely submitted a written protest with the Board of County
Commissioners against the addition of services to be provided by the
District, and who is a registered voter within the District or is an
owner of property within the boundaries of the District, may file an
action in the Seventh Judicial District Court of Utah in Carbon
County, Utah upon the grounds that the proceedings taken in the 
addition of services to be provided by the District violated
applicable law, or upon the grounds that the person's property will
not be benefitted by the additional services authorized by the
resolution or ordinance to be furnished by the District. 
 
 	GIVEN by order of the Board of County Commissioners of Carbon
County, Utah, this 28th day of December, 2011.
 Published in the Sun Advocate January 31, February 7 and 14, 2012.
