I read in a recent Roundup that the town of Payson could not afford to put a sidewalk in between the golf course and the lakes along Country Club Drive. Apparently at least one Payson resident feels it would be desirable to do so.
Recent history shows that Payson has a regrettably superb record for obtaining federal grants to fund absurd projects.
Since Payson leaders have already convinced the brilliant minds in Washington that we needed a sidewalk to the airport, it should be relatively simple to now suggest that the sidewalk be relocated. I feel confident funding for the relocation will be approved when city officials point out that it will increase usage by at least 100 percent.
