Council Meeting Moved To Wednesday


The Payson Town Council will discuss the adoption of a code of ethics for town employees at its regular council meeting, which was moved to Wednesday this week, instead of Thursday.

The code of ethics was created by the Ethics Task Force and presented to the council at the May 3 meeting.

At that time, the council wanted more time to digest the extensive code and to allow for feedback.

Town Manager Fred Carpenter said the council may address the feedback it has received and amend the ethics code accordingly.

The council will also hold a second reading and public hearing regarding the regulation of temporary signs in town.

Amendments to the original ordinance have been added, including types and time limits for displaying temporary signs.

The council will hold a first reading and public hearing regarding the rezoning of property east of North Tyler Parkway on Underwood Lane.

Carpenter said, if the council approves the rezoning as requested, the property could be used for 1-acre lots rather than 2-acre lots, as it exists currently.

Special meeting to discuss Event Center Project

The council will hold a special meeting today, Tuesday, at 4 p.m. at Town Hall to discuss and possibly approve the concept plan for the Payson Event Center.

The developer, Hospitality Support Group, has come up with a lease and cite plan for 10 acres of the 36-acre property, which will eventually include a new hotel, parking structures and covered event center.
