RAP Tax recommendations poised for approval Patrick Parkinson Of the Record staff
Twenty non-profit organizations are expected to receive a total of nearly $640,000 in grants from the Summit County Commission on Wednesday.
Since the county began doling out Recreation, Arts and Parks (RAP) Tax revenue in 2002, almost $2 million has been given to those who provide cultural opportunities in the county, said Tom Fey, chair of the RAP Tax Cultural Advisory Committee.
Fey’s board meets each year to evaluate applicants and recommend to the Summit County Commission how a percentage of sales tax generated in the area should be spent. Commissioners will make the final decision and other recipients could include: KPCW — $45,350 Alf Engen Ski Museum — $17,900 Arts-Kids — $31,000 Echo Community and Historical Organization — $4,500 Kimball Art Center — $47,225 Mountain Town Stages — $49,900 Norwegian Outdoor Exploration Center — $25,000 Park City Film Series — $17,150 Park City Historical Society and Museum — $80,000 Park City Jazz Foundation — $38,000 The Egyptian Theatre — $62,200 Park City Performing Arts Foundation — $70,000 Park City Singers — $3,000 Park City/Summit County Arts Council — $33,800 Park City Literary Festival — $4,125 Summit County Historical Society — $7,000 Sundance Institute — $59,000 Swaner Memorial Park Foundation — $10,650 The Park City Chamber Music Society — $10,400 Utah Symphony and Opera — $23,800 Fey says the committee was unable to contact representative for the Utah Music Festival and denied a request from that organization for $37,550.
