I would like to see the $$$ amounts for each of the fire departments budget showing the salaries being paid for administrative staff. No one has ever printed that information and I think it would bring a lot of light to this whole situation. I know one department complains of budget woes and yet they are building a new station! There is an awful lot of information that needs to be brought to the public aka Taxpayers who will ultimately be the ones most affected by this JPA.
It has been reported that Mr. Voden has on several occasions used a firearm in to threaten or intimidate people. At one time he attended a Payson Town Council Meeting and drew what looked like a weapon (turned out it was just a wooden gun that used rubber bands) at a member of the Town Council! Is this considered acceptable or normal behavior? And now he has shot an unarmed man. not once, not twice but four times! My question is when I saw Mr. Voden he was at the hospital by himself. While I realize he has the right to seek medical care for himself I just wonder what precautions are in place to prevent him from obtaining another firearm from someone? To me this is very disturbing since it seems that he has a penchant for having altercations involving this type of weapon.
He must be able to go other places that are not mentioned in this article. I recently saw him by himself at PRMC when I was there to visit a patient.
The suspect appeared to be under the influence of a illegal drug. Or maybe he was suffering from Schizophrenia or another mental illness.
Meria: I do not care about what they say Marijuana can help with. The true fact is that it can not cure any disease or condition and people these days are too easily diagnosed with depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, and migraine headaches and supposedly marijuana helps them cope and treats their symptoms? Well all it does is deaden their senses and they are in a state of euphoria. I have a condition Familial Hemiplegic Migraines and when I have one come on it mimics a massive stroke. The pain is intense and the symptoms last for days. Not once have I ever thought about using medical marijuana for this condition or the many others that i have that easily would make me an ideal candidate for it. As far as I am concerned, and this is my opinion it is a gateway drug. It is still illegal to grow or possess by Federal Laws. I am against it being legalized in anyway shape manner or form.
What about the one that was going in off of Bonita Street behind the now closed Famous Sams? They even changed the Fire Codes for that one and now it is an empty lot with weeds. Nothing was ever built. It will be interesting to see if they are going to build anything!!
It will be interesting to see what fire codes will be changed for these developments. Our Town Council and Mayor have changed them in the past for others.
What does the statement "little kick back from the state or town" pertain to? How much money has gone into the town's and county coffers from their business? Is this a for profit business or is it under the auspices of a 501 C? I still have to wonder where the people get the kind of money that it costs to get a card and then buy the products.
While we are on the subject of irresponsible dog owners, this also should include picking up after your dogs. For instance the ball field at Rumsey 1. It has nice green grass not the fake kind but real grass and owners like to let their dogs run free in the grass never mind that the dog park is just across the road from the ball field. If they do pick up their pet's waste they deposit it into the trash cans located inside the dugouts. These cans are not emptied on a regular basis and the smell from the waste can gag even the strongest stomachs. I have attended many ball games there and kids have either stepped in the messes left behind or the trash cans have to be taken out of the dugouts due to the smell and the flies!
There are too many unanswered questions regarding the Brush Pit Operations. For instance how long have they known that the monies would run out? What other grants did they utilize in the operation of these pits over the years? Lots of investigation needs to be done because it seems very odd that after years of operation all of a sudden there is not money to operate them. This whole thing is about as clear as smoke!!!
