Box 385, Editorial A step in the right direction One of the perpetual problems for the city government in Payson has been trying to acquire citizen input in determining just what needs to be done, what resources are available, and how to go about doing the necessary. All too often city officials call public hearings only to be greeted by an empty room. And on the other side, citizens regularly complain about not being consulted on important decisions. Payson Mayor Gary Tassainer and three of the present Payson City Councilman recently campaigned to represent the people and to let the people know what is going on in city government and to get citizen input. The other two councilmen, who have been on the council for some time, also realize the importance of citizen involvement. To better involve the citizens in their government, the council is planning to implement a Utah Community Progress organization in Payson. If set up properly, the organization will provide a means for determining citizens concerns about the city, identifying resources to work on the concerns, and establishing goals. The UCP also provides a means of monitoring progress towards the goals. And to add a little competition, Paysons UCP organization will compete every two years against other communities to see how well we have done compared to others. More important, the council has also chosen to get the individual councilmen directly involved with the citizens by placing each of them directly over one of the five major committees in the UCP. The whole soiup will allow citizens more input into council decisions. The UCP organization will not only allow the council to keep in better touch with the citizens; it will make it easier for them to visualize the needs of the whole city. In the past, the council has gotten bogged down putting out brush fires and dealing with the day-to-day problems of city administration. That will now be handled by a city administrator, under the direction of the mayor and the city council. The councilmen are now free to devote their time and talents to working with the citizens to improve the overall situation in Payson. Of course, there will be some problems in setting up the UCP organization. And it will not automatically solve all the citys problems; there will undoubtedly be a few mistakes made. But the good that can be realized through the program will far outweigh the inconveniences of getting it started. The program will do a great deal to help the citizens get involved with their government and get that government moving forward toward realistic goals. UCP deserves the support of ail Payson citizens.

Legislators call for audit of water district A portion of the funding for the Central Utah Project comes from an assessed property tax mill levy on all twelve counties of the water conservancy district. Because of some questions raised by some citizens residing in the twelve-county district, and because of some questions some Utah Legislators had of themselves, concerning several ways in which the money was being spent by the conservancy district, in the last session of the Legislature, eighteen legislators (13 representatives and five senators) signed a written request for . an audit of the conservancy district by the Legislative Auditor General. The request, first, must be acted upon by the Legislative Audit Committee of the state Legislature. This committee is comprised of two representatives and two senators. Because the committee did not have a quorum at their meeting last month, the request was tabled and not acted upon until the next meeting. Rep. Robert Phelps of Utah County was one of the eighteen co-signers of the request. Sabin Karat SobtniFutllenbacIi Well, gang, its diet time again. It happens every spring when the hyancinths and tulips start popping up and the seams start popping out. Other signals that its time to watch the caloric intake are the fat globules that have adhered to my hip regions as a result of the sins of winter (popcorn gooey with butter and washed down with hot chocolate are a few of the sins). Since we all know, thanks to Garfield the cat, that diet means die with a t, dieting becomes a very unpopular thing to do. Ive given myself sixteen consecutive splurge days where I really pigged down on such delicacies as pizza loaded with everything, enchiladas loaded with cheese, creamy chowder soups, and chocolate chip cookies. The idea of the splurges was that the next day was d (for diet) day and I wasnt going to get any goodies for a long time. So I had to stuff myself with all kinds of delicious treats. And each new day reminded me of another treat to splurge on. With all the splurges, Ive put on another five pounds I have to add to the original thirty pounds to lose. Ive tried buying a new swimsuit in a smaller size with the thoughts of shrinking to fit it. Ive even bought shrink-to-fit jeans; I shrink and they fit. I now have four swimsuits in an indecent smaller size and three pairs of jeans. Does that mean Ive been through the seven fat years and am now entitled to the seven lean years? I hope so. Now the next step is to begin on the 357 diets I have managed to collect through the years. There are enough of them that I can honestly say Im starting a new diet tomorrow, and still allow for 8 splurge days in a year. Ill let you know how it works.
