Not worry. Payson’s economic director Bobby Davis was buzzing with excitement last week as he delivered an update to the council on the area’s growth.

The number of new businesses, increased sales tax revenue, the town’s new strategic plan and an overhaul of its website all prove that things are on the up and up, said Davis.

In May, sales tax revenue was up $385,100 over the same period a year ago, according to the Arizona Department of Revenue.

“Can you feel the buzz in the air?” he said.

LOL...........

According to the left media, Cecil the Lion being killed during a hunt in Africa is of far greater concern. After all Jimmy Kimmel cried on his live TV show during his rant about it. Pathetic, our country is in full slide mode downhill. And your tax dollars are being given to PP.

So Far, TRUMP has my vote. No PC crap speak from him. Bet that really PO's you. Sounds like Hillary may be for you. You know, honesty, integrity, fund raising, favors for donations to her foundations, bimbo public destruction campaigns, a video caused the Bengazi attack, and what difference does it make! What a gal.

Not sure if they get a bill or not. If not don't worry. Just think about you tax bills. The good old public coffers will probably pick up the TAB.

An motorized auto pulley basket for going up, and a slide for going down would be much more cost effective. Estimated cost $5K.
