Smoke from Four Peaks Fire alarms Tonto Basin June 25, 2016
At the November meeting of PSWID Tom Weeks stood up and revealed what he saw as the improper use of the PSWID credit card. From the posted agenda for a December 6 meeting of the PSWID Board it appears that the PSWID Board is going after him rather than the credit card user. You can see the agenda at pswid.org. You can also read the articles in the Payson Roundup that deal with this matter. Tom Weeks did the right thing in bringing the credit card use out into the open. Please attend the PSWID meeting December 6 at 6 p.m. in the Pine Cultural Center. Tom deserves the support of all who want honesty, integrity and transparency in government matters.
Questions we should be askingl. -
Ya just gotta love small town personality's and all their drama. This is better than a tv soap opera.
The PSWID dispute is a serious matter and involves several serious issues. Here are some more issues in addition to the ones mentioned by Mr. Hawthorne.
The well that PSWID bought for a lot of money is producing turbid water. What effect will this have on the health long term or short term of PSWID water users? What effect will it have on plumbing systems? What effect will it have on the PSWID water system? Will maintenance costs go higher than necessary? What effect will turbid water have on property values?
Why did PSWID drill 2 additional deep wells before understanding and solving the problems with the deep wells they purchased? These wells were supposedly drilled on land they didn't know they owned until a survey was done after the purchase of a deep well. How could they not know what they owned?
Why did PSWID create a debt in the approximate amount of $7 million before a master plan was set in place?
PSWID is not be run in a manner consistent with the principles this country was founded on. Why are some people strictly held to a 3 minute limit when speaking while others can take as long as they want?
These are just some of the issues. PSWID problems are serious. It is time to look at them and hopefully correct them.
This is not an answer to all your questions directly nor an effort to address the issues , but more of an observation as to how such things unfold and come to be. WELCOME to RURAL AMERICA!
Yep! Things are done differently up here in the forest than in the "Big Citys". Like the lady with the "elk" problems. One more or less "Buys into" this type of problem when they choose to relocate into the rural environment.
Ron, you are sooooo right, after moving here from the evil empire to the West (LA) almost 20 years ago. Went to work for the county and lasted 10.5 years. Boy, were my eyes and ears educated on a totaly different way of doing business and treating people. I have no dog in this water fight, just a spectator. But, I was informed that one of the PSWID board members owns the local ICE and delivery company up there? Does that make them the largest local commercial water consumer and could that be a another conflict of interest on making water use and rates decisions? Hope the info is bogus as they have plenty of problems already. I hope they can work it all out.
