Wondering Why One Well, Not Two

Editor:

I want to express my personal outrage after being informed after the fact, that in January of 2005, two wells on the Chilson property, producing 400 GPM of "new water" were turned down by Buzz Walker.

These wells would have been sold to the town of Payson at fair market value by Hallie Overman, and surely would have stopped any need for the town to accept Star Valley water.

My question is: Why were the citizens of Payson not informed about this by the mayor, Town Council or staff prior to them agreeing to pay Randall and Haught $750,000 for water from a Star Valley well when they could have bought two for less money, and avoided this entire water issue with Star Valley?
