Payson may scrap some impact fees
by Alexis Bechman
The Fox Farm property has been on the market for years
I certainly was, Pat!
Ditto, on what Rex said!
I have been asked by Time Out, Inc., President of the Board, Donna Lahti to clarify that, according to Section 8.2 of the Time Out bylaws, endorsement of any candidate is prohibited.
Ditto on Rex's comment!
Don, only a few people have been banned from this forum, none for minor policy violations. Most for fabrication of fact, out-right lies or libel. Voicing honest opinion about a topic has never been a reason to ban anyone. Asking one to share the basis for one's opinion or conjecture is commonplace.
Thanks, for the response, Tom. For a minute there I thought you were getting so famous that you need an agent.
Tom, refresh my memory, as I'm too lazy right now to do the research. Wasn't all that information already supplied to state officials?
OK, Don let's have it. You scream for accountability and then you shroud your comments in mystery. Put your information out there, why play the teaser. I know you know how to copy and paste web addresses, let's see it, start pasting and let us all see your conspiracy theory.
In 2010 a firm started here with 7 employees in a 2000 square foot building. Today they have expanded to 20,000 square feet with some 50 local employees paying them a family wage. Now they feel they can take the next step to become a major player in their industry and perhaps triple the number of employees supporting their families, paying local taxes, etc. Every one in town talks about economic development and when it hits us in the face some want to turn it into a conspiracy, much like when Payson shunned Ruger Firearms. Ruger went to Prescott instead and are a major employer in the area... Prescott is very pleased we turned them down.
I would urge everyone to follow your advice and look at the website of dck Worldwide. Look at the quality of their product. They are not in the business to put up tin buildings. They are in the business to build headquarters for major companies. We a have a company right here that wants to do that.
I will tell you, I spoke to the owner of ATAC, a former Navy and commercial airline pilot, and he told me "I was 2 weeks away from telling my employees we were moving to Texas, the most business friendly state in the nation, when this property became available."
So Don, let's chase another employer away so we can go back to bitching about how bad the roads are, how bad the schools are, how bad the fire and police department morale is... without tax paying jobs that's all we have left to do. I for the life of me can't figure out why some can't understand the plain economics needed to provide quality services.
So, go ahead Don, start pasting those address so we all can see your conjecture.
