Put the blame where it belongs. Town Govt.
When my son built his house the impact fees were around $10,000 and that was over 10 yrs. ago. When the subdivision was put in the water impact fee was supposed to be paid in full at the first sale of a lot. Around $500. He was the fourth buyer and the fees were around $5000. as the town didn't enforce the original ordinance or deed restrictions. Then over $700. for the water meter when he got ready to turn it on. The town makes an ordinance, never enforces them and then changes them when a friend needs something different. I had a longer post about all the crap we went thru with the town building it, as my other son was the contractor. Not a developer. I hit a wrong button again and erased it all so will quit for now.
All the park impact fees must be going to the Event Center or else the town is taking money from some where else.
The home buyer, or business owner.
Not if it raises my taxes. Maybe the schools should find a way to cut expenses.
How does anyone be killed in a humane manner? Were their victims killed in a humane manner? Humane and killing don't belong in the same sentence.
Maybe they should be done away with in the same way as their vicitms?
Went to the Reservation to buy cigarettes today (Wed) and saw big trucks hauling material into the event center. Went over and there were 5 big trucks there. Not all belonging to the same company. They have hauled in some kind of pavement looking material and spreading it around west of the 2nd arena and there is a big pile of it with someone running machinery on it. Also lots of dirt has been hauled in there for the last 4 yrs. Went to see LaRon Garrett at town hall. He says the material is all free, the highway dept. is giving it to the town. Said it was saving the town $25,000. Even if the highway dept. gave them the material someone is paying for the trucks and drivers. Why is so much being done out there when the roads are so bad in town? When I asked him other questions about the event center he said he didn't know the answers. I told him being Asst. Town Manager he should know what is going on. I would like to have the information on the cost of everything done out there in the last few years. Said he didn't know where it was and gave me some woman's name. I have had that runaround before. The money should be coming out of the park money and I thought they were broke.
Does anyone know where the money is coming from while they are screaming the town has no money? Money for the pipeline, event center and what ever else is anyone's guess. A printing press for money in the basement??
What good is raising enrollment with seniors citizens if they don't pay anything?
The college has to pay teachers and other cost for them to attend.
Who does the math for the college?
There are so few cattle left in Arizona, I don't know what she is trying to do.
Where are all the feed lots and slaughter houses she is protecting?
There is abuse to horses, the ones that do gooders want to run free all over the state. There is not enough food and water for them. They should be sent to slaughter places for dog food. I know it may sound cruel but better than starving out on the desert, or locked up in pens, starving and being mistreated.
The ones on working ranches are very well taken care of, as are the cattle. But most of that kind of life is gone. I could name several ranches within 30 miles of Payson that no longer are allowed cattle on open range because the land is under the control of the Forest Service.
Yes, I know what I am talking about my husband and I were both raised mostly on ranches and owned the one west of the Doll Baby Ranch for 13 yrs. No cattle on either one now if I am not mistaken.
Maybe she should check out the poultry and egg farms and slaughter houses. Probably would never eat any again. Yes, we owned one when we first moved to Mesa in 1957.
Henny Penny Egg Ranch at 562 W. 8th St. Didn't take me long to figure out I was not a chicken rancher. Sold the chickens within a yr. and didn't eat chicken for about 10 yrs after seeing the slaughter house.
Somewhere on here I read July 2014 was going to be the downfall of all banking in the US. Banks would not be open and you would have no way of getting any money. No I don't know where I read it. I can never go back and find anything. Hopefully the article was wrong. But it said we should be prepared.
It is not teenagers I see in groups complaining outside of Walmart In fact I don't think I have seen a teenager working anywhere in Walmart.
Don't try to judge me as you don't know me. I am not ignorant of the plight of others. My grandsons live in Tonto Basin and they worked in New Mexico for months leaving their families in Tonto Basin. There was no work here so they went somewhere else to work. They didn't sit on their rear and whine and they weren't wearing $125.00 shoes standing in line at DES.
I agree about the dogs. If they are truly service dogs they would have on some kind of ID saying they are a service dog. I have a dog that was never trained but lets me know when my blood pressure is up. I had her three days the first time she did it. I would never think of taking her into a store of any kind. She is never more than 3 feet from me unless she needs to go outside or I am at the store and she stays in the car.
You all shop where you want, I am going to shop where I can get the most for my money.
It's about time the town has to go by some rules and better accounting.
It is no wonder building is down with all the impact fees and charges they come up with and spending it where they please. Time for a watch dog and I am sure there are employees to handle it, no need to hire consultants and more book keepers.
