Supervisors Gather In Payson


The Gila County Board of Supervisors will be in Payson this week.

The board meets at 10 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 9 at Best Western Payson Inn, 801 N. Beeline Highway.

The agenda, as of Sept. 4, included only seven action items and only one of those had a direct impact on Northern Gila County. Board Chairman Ron Christensen has asked the supervisors to name County Manager John F. Nelson as the administrator of the Pine-Strawberry Water Improvement District.

At a meeting in August the supervisors agreed to take over the district because it no longer had a quorum of elected board members. Without a quorum, no business could be conducted for the district.

Christensen said the county will run the district until a full board can be elected by the residents.

Consent items make up the bulk of the Sept. 9 agenda. Included in these are two local issues.

One is an intergovernmental agreement with the town of Payson and the Gila County Community Action Program to provide services for residents for the 2003-2004 fiscal year.

The other is ratification of the chairman's signature on a final plat for the Thompson Draw 1 subdivision, approximately 15 miles east of Payson, south of Highway 260 on Forest Road 405.
