Q: Who is responsible for controlling the ugly weeds underneath the very nice Welcome to Payson sign on the east side of the Beeline near the casino? It would look nice to have a couple of floodlights on a timer shining on it at night. Would that be possible?
A: Arizona Department of Transportation is responsible for the gutter in the street but gave the right of way back to the Town of Payson, so the Town is responsible for the sidewalk and the slope, said Ron Woolwine, area maintenance supervisor for ADOT.
It recently became the Town's responsibility said Fred Carpenter, town manager. The weeds will be cleaned up. A solar light was purchased within this year's budget. It will be installed this budget year, which ends June 30.
