I have looked at this site and while I see Su Connell's name on the site as she serves on one of the volunteer committees I do not see Mayor Evan's name or picture associated with RCEA. Is he not involved with the the whole process other than being the Mayor of Payson? Not being negative in any way I am just wondering since he does a lot of speaking about the college and the plans. Also I would have one other question: As mentioned in Paragraph 1, 2 and 3 the Town has no authority or control over it who will be doing the inspections and such on the buildings once they have plans sent in for approval. Will it be under the control of the County or State? Also another about the tax base mentioned in Paragraph 2. Will they be able to set taxes without an election? This will ultimately affect all property owners in the area or at least I would think it would.
Tom and Don: I have researched and researched and researched some more. I have not been able to ascertain exactly what the statement "any powers they share in common" refers to either. The answers must be out there somewhere but are beyond my scope of knowledge. Is the land considered an "island" within the Town of Payson? If one could find out this, a lot of questions could be answered as far as who or what would have the ultimate decision over plan decisions. Again many unanswered questions and lots of Red Flags ! Sorry that I am not of more help if any help at all. This one has me stymied as well.
John: I certainly hope that the citizens do not demure and allow the folly to continue. In this instance and with the our Mayor and Council as well. We all need to be aware of what is happening in our schools and in our government. Study, do our homework and then make an informed decision at the polls instead of just checking yes or no or just blacking out the little circle by someone's name. Our School Board has made horrendous choices in the past and they now need to be held accountable for their actions. Albeit at the cost to our children. Time for the nonsense to come to a screeching halt!!!
Don't they have to have an election for a budget override? Maybe I am just showing my ignorance of the system but how many people will actually approve an override when they just sold a perfectly good school with an amazing playground and parking lot.
Not sure why there would be high growth in areas that have many empty buildings? I would love to see new businesses come in. Main Street is just sad. Empty run down buildings. Seems that businesses go in and are gone within just a few months.
Pat: I am so sorry about your bad luck. You know it used to be if you did something to someone else's property you just fessed up to it and took the punishment! Hope they find out who did it!!
Maybe they should have held onto Frontier School instead of jamming students and teachers into crowded classrooms. Doesn't that pose safety issues as well? Shame on our School board and their previous decisions! Budget Over Ride Vote? Seriously?
I have enjoyed your articles and will miss them greatly! Congratulations on your long deserved retirement!!!
I have seen THC in doing my research on the marijuana legalization pages. It is the mind altering component in the Cannabis plant. I still do not understand how any of it works for treatment of disease. There is a lot of information on the web and I try to be open minded about things but it is extremely hard when I feel that these dispensaries are operating under the guises of non-profit organizations. and when i read the one here in Payson will be trading their "ice cream" for more plants. Sorry that raises lots of flags. My concern is what happens if a child in the household gets the ice cream, brownies, lollipops or whatever else they have concocted up and ingests it. Will it be harmful to them? can they become violently ill or worse die? too many unanswered questions as far as i am concerned! Mr. Coleman I sincerely hope that your daughter is doing much better. I am sending out positive thoughts for her.
Don: Is it legal for them to transport it? Just because they have a card it does not make it legal for them to drive under the influence of marijuana. I am going to have to do some research.
