Jeff Corriveau: ‘What is best’ for all

Advertisement

To the editor:

I have followed the back and forth between the Craig City Council and the Moffat County Commission regarding the Moffat County Public Safety Center.

I hope that this issue can be resolved in the very near future.

I would like to suggest that the city accept the “middle of the road” offer made by the county commissioners with the condition that any payment made by them would be used only for the purpose of paying down the existing balance on the bonded indebtedness.

This would ensure that payment made by the city would benefit the taxpayers who were generous enough to pass the bond vote at a time when law enforcement needed it the most.

This would also demonstrate that the county commissioners’ negotiations were in good faith and that no hidden agendas exist for any money paid by the city.

Additionally, this will allow the commissioners to demonstrate that they are true to their political convictions of doing only what is best for the taxpayers of Moffat County.

I feel we have already paid the county and continue to pay through taxes. The city should pay it's fair share of utilities and building up-keep. The county is getting sales tax to pay for the building loan which should be paid off soon, unless the commissioners have been borrowing against the building to fund other projects???

I'm wondering if the tax money for the bonds to pay for the safety center is set to expire in 2015 or when ever the debt was scheduled to be paid off to begin with? If so what is the county going to do for income to pay off this debt that has supposedly been refinanced AGAIN and is not to be paid back to 2025??
