Pat: In the Coconino Forest there are so many areas that you are not allowed to camp in now. Although the article does not say this I am wondering if perhaps that is why the officer was in contact with the man. you have to have a map just to understand what roads you can camp on and just how far you can be from the center of the road. It is quite an ordeal in trying to decipher what is allowed.

Don have they taken out building permits? Have or were the plans approved by the Building Department and Fire Department? You would be surprised to hear how many businesses open shop without the necessary plans and approval here in our town.

No one has asked the question why they do not want to use land that is not in the Town Limits of Payson. There is the land out off of Doll Baby Road. Land in Rye.

Barbara Rasmussen 3 months ago on Banners shortchange too many students

The banners are really nice but I am wondering who paid for them? The students, the school or the town? If the students did then perhaps that is the reason they are not honoring all students/organizations. Were they offered to all groups or only a few? And if the Town paid for them my question is how and the same to the school! How were they paid for?

Barbara Rasmussen 4 months ago on Payson Town Council Meeting 8/14/2014

Just wondering how many people either went to the Town Council Meeting tonight or watched it either on television or on their computer? And also any feedback on the comments by the one man about people in Payson being ignorant and choice of words bordering on profanity? And having to be asked to address the members of the Town Council and not the public and the clincher was the conversation n between the two council members about the vote. Their microphones were not turned off and it was easily heard and understood. WOW!!!!

Mr. Rhea: I know for a fact that Robert 9Bob) Lockhart did not quit nor was he fired! His position was done away with. I have known Mr. Lockhart for many years and he is reputable, knowledgeable and a very caring person. He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to building and fire codes. Did you know that the State Fire Marshal used to consult with him? Many circumstances led up to his position being eliminated and because people in the Town Government did not want to have to deal with codes being enforced and decided it would be easier to just do away with the position. Yes there is a wealth of information available without any or very little digging. Perhaps you might like to try and do the digging and investigation!

Town of Payson Administrative Policy "Smokeless Propellants", "Public Safety-A701", Council approved November 12, 2009 and revised Dec 22, 2009. A matter of public record and makes for some interesting reading especially when you do further research on Smokeless Propellants used in ammunition factories

I wonder why land around Rye was not looked into for the Ammunition Company expansion. It is flat and a major highway is very close by. No semi-trucks driving through family neighborhoods and no prime riparian areas to destroy. I just would like to know why they are searching for land within the Town of Payson and not in the County. Something doesn't quite seem right about this whole deal to take the Fox Farm and turn it into an Industrial Park.

So if campaign laws were broken and the signs are illegal isn't there any type of fine associated with breaking the campaign laws

I listened to the Payson Town Council meting last night. I have to wonder why our Mayor is riding around with anyone looking for property for private developments? Shouldn't that be left up to Real Estate Professionals? Also perhaps the infrastructure will be paid for by the developer but what about the continued upkeep on a road that will see increased heavy traffic, emergency services and water which by the way the town does not have yet. Will the developer continue to pay for the costs of all these increased services for many years to come? And let us not forget about the Industrial Land available by the airport here in Payson. Why is not suitable? Where the ammunition company is located at now there is room for expansion! Many of the buildings are in place and available now since they sit empty. Why ruin a beautiful area like the Fox Farm?
