Our town needs to incorporate an ordinance that would allow our elected mayor and council to remove any town department head. The way we have it now is - it takes a 6 to 1 vote of the council to dismiss a department head, and a 4 to 3 vote of the council for anything else.
I believe our department heads need to know they work for our town of Payson, and not for the council alone.
Another qualification for a town department head is they should be a full-time resident of our community.
Payson, this is our town, and we are the people.
Let us take our stand and fight for our voice to be heard. Make it known that we want this ordinance, and call our council at 474-5242. Make it known you want this ordinance.
Untie your council members' hands so they can do the work we elected them to do. Stand strong.
Diana Sexton, Payson
