The Recreation, Arts, Parks, and Zoos (RAPZ) tax is a local option sales tax that was approved by the voters and enacted by the Cache County Council in November 2002. The funds generated support a multitude of cultural events throughout the County; the development or improvement of parks, trails, and recreational facilities within 18 of the 19 municipalities and in the unincorporated County; the Willow Park Zoo; and a number of other community interests.

The RAPZ tax is a 0.1% sales tax (1 cent on every $10 spent) that is distributed based on the review of qualifying applications by an 8 member board that provide a recommendation for final funding approval to the Cache County Council. A number of items go into the selection criteria for RAPZ funding awards including how much match money or labor/materials/equipment will be provided; the availability of the project to be used by the public; and the effective use of previous RAPZ awards by the project sponsor.

This was taken from the Cache County website.
