What's Up?


Q: How do I get a banner for my business to hang across the Beeline? The Ox Bow Saloon is flying a banner at the south end of town.

A: Members of the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce can hang banners across the Beeline, according to membership chairman Pat Johnson.

"They need to purchase the banner themselves, and it needs to meet ADOT specifications," Johnson said. "They need to schedule the hanging with us, and there's a $50 fee to put it up and another $50 to take it down."

The banner itself will set you back "a couple hundred dollars," and Ironhorse Signs is the preferred vendor because "they know all the specs," Johnson said.

While ADOT allows banners to hang for a maximum of 29 days, a high volume of requests sometimes limits the amount of time a banner is up to two weeks.

"The Ox Bow's sign will come down right after the rodeo," Johnson said.

For more information, call the chamber at 474-4515.

Q: Why doesn't the town hire an animal control officer instead of having the job done haphazardly by volunteers?

A: It has, according to Lt. Don Engler of the Payson Police Department. He's Don Tanner, and he's been on the job about a month. Tanner came from Mesa where he was a citizen employee for the Mesa Police Department.

"He did a variety of tasks for them, including some animal control duties," Engler said.
