The town keeps complaining that building permits are down. I just paid impact fees, building permit fees and sewer fees totalling just over $13,000 in a 20-year-old subdivision.
Is it any wonder people are not building here?
There is no livable wage (here), and the town makes it difficult and expensive for new business to come to Payson.
The people who are working or have worked all their lives are tired of paying higher and higher taxes and fees so the town council can have that warm, fuzzy, do-good feeling along with their sense of power.
Welcome to Payson.
