    Wouldn’t it be nice if our public servant held a free open discussion in a venue such as the Dixie Convention Center so all who wanted could attend? I know crazy talk.

    County Water Conservancy District General Manager Ronald Thompson will likely be be pushing the unaffordable poorly conceived Lake Powell pipeline project. That seems to be his main goal nowadays.

    Your Water bill and property tax bills will make your eyes bleed and empty your bank accounts as soon as the lake Powell pipeline is built, and look for the statue of Ron Thompson ( this project is “His” legacy after all )……so enjoy the 600,000 people living in Washington county asap, and the loss of your quality of life
