My name is Sam Allen and I’m the proprietor of this site. In my former life I used to be an accountant and an investigative reporter (among other things) but now I’m mostly a stay-at-home dad who gets to pay the bills and see where all the money is going. Unfortunately, as I started looking into my extremely high utility bills last year, I discovered that Eagle Mountain City charges some of the highest rates in Utah County.
My original interest in the city’s finances was piqued by the stunning lack of transparency on the city’s utility bills, but it quickly snowballed into a full-blown investigation. As I shared my findings with various friends and neighbors, they shared even more information with me, which led to the discovery of even more controversies.
I hope you enjoy this report. It took me most of a year to prepare it and it gave me quite a few headaches in the process.
