    PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED EXPANSION OF BOUNDARIES AND PURPOSES OF
THE SCOFIELD RESERVOIR SPECIAL SERVICE DISTRICT
    
    	On July 20, 2011, at the hour of 6:00 p.m., at 120 East Main
Street, Price, Utah, the Board of County Commissioner of Carbon
County, Utah will hold a public hearing on the expansion of the
purposes of the Scofield Reservoir Special Service District to include
the provision of garbage collection and disposal services, and the
expansion of the boundaries of the Scofield Reservoir Special Service
District to include the annexation of the parcels of real property
described above.  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 the expansion of the boundaries
of the District, or the proposed expansion of garbage collection and
disposal services 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 expand the territory
or purposes of the District.
    
    Written Protests
    
    	Written protests must be submitted in writing 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 or within
the proposed boundaries of the District.  All written protests must
explain why the owner is protesting. Written protests may be withdrawn
at any time before the County approves by ordinance or resolution the
expansion of the District boundaries and purposes.  Having withdrawn a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 area to be annexed into the
District representing more than 33% of the taxable value of all
taxable property within the territory proposed to be annexed into the
District timely file written protests, or if 33% of the registered
voters within the territory to be annexed into the District timely
file written protests, the Board of Commissioners may not annex the
proposed territory into the District.
    
    If owners of property within the currently existing District and
the area proposed to be annexed into the District representing more
than 33% of the taxable value of all taxable property within the
District and the territory proposed to be annexed thereto timely file
written protests, or if 33% of the registered voters within the
District and the territory to be annexed into the District timely file
written protests, the Board of Commissioners may not expand the
purposes of the District to the provision of garbage collection and
disposal services.
    
    	Within 30 days after the approval of an ordinance or resolution
annexing additional territory into the District or expanding the
purposes of the District, a person who timely submitted a written
protest with the Board of County Commissioners against the annexation
of additional territory into the District, or against the expansion of
services 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 annexation of additional territory into the District or
the expansion of services by the District violated applicable law, or
upon the grounds that the person's property will not be benefitted by
the services authorized to be furnished by the District. 
    
    	GIVEN by order of the Board of County Commissioners of Carbon
County, Utah, this 16th day of June, 2011.
