Washington County of Utah

State of the County- Part 3 of 6

With our residents at the top of mind, the Washington County Commission is committed to finding ways to cut costs and maintain our status as “the lowest tax rate in the state”.

As we know, Washington County is an attractive location for tourism. Thanks to the positive economic impact of our visitors to our beautiful county, this lowers our resident’s taxes each year.

Watch this video as Commissioner Snow, Iverson, and Almquist talk to us about the positive impacts that are made by our community sales tax and tourism revenue.

Rep. Travis Seegmiller to Resign from Utah House of Representatives

This morning, Rep. Travis Seegmiller notified Speaker Brad Wilson of his intent to resign from the Utah House of Representatives, effective July 1, 2022. Rep. Seegmiller and his family plan to move outside the boundaries of his current district, requiring the representative to forgo his elected position and withdraw from his current election.

“I appreciate Rep. Seegmiller’s service and accept his resignation,” said Speaker Wilson. “I wish Rep. Seegmiller and his family well in their future plans and endeavors.”

Rep. Seegmiller has represented House District 62 in Washington County since his appointment to the Utah House of Representatives in February 2018. The Washington County Republican Party will hold a special election to fill House District 62’s vacancy in the coming months.
