In the November 2021 General Election, Kaysville residents approved a Recreation, Arts, Museum and Parks (RAMP) Tax initiative. The RAMP tax equals $0.01 per $10 spent on non-essential purchases (not on grocery food items and gas) within Kaysville City. All of the RAMP funds collected are devoted to fund recreation, arts, museum, and parks improvements, facilities and organizations for the city.
A RAMP Tax Advisory Board was formed by the mayor and city council to administer the program. The board collects, reviews and prioritizes all requests received and makes a yearly recommendation to the city council on how to expend the funds received. The council has the ultimate authority in the allocation of RAMP funds. The Board is made up of residents, with the support of city staff and council members.
RAMP funds are limited; while smaller projects may be completed in one year, larger projects will likely require several years to save the full amount needed.
