Did you see the voter information packet concerning the proposed YMCA in Payson? More than six pages of information, for and against, and not a word addressing the real question here: Does Payson need another indoor recreation/fitness facility? The answer, which renders the arguments contained in those six pages moot, is no.
I suspect that at least 90 percent of Paysonites who would utilize such a facility are already members of an existing one, and that at least 90 percent of those (myself included) are perfectly happy with where they are at and have no intention of spending the same (or more) in monthly dues to switch memberships.
What a shame that all this time, energy and money couldn’t have been diverted to something Payson really needs, like, say, an animal shelter.
