Taresa Hiatt for
Payson City Council
Working for the Citizens
As owner of Copy Central and Scrapbook, I am aware of the shopping concerns in Payson. Furthermore, I am a Planning and Zoning Commissioner and understand that change is needed. However, for change to happen, we must have the tax base. Are you ready to always shop in Payson and stop giving your tax dollars to other cities?

Taresa Hiatt's campaign begins now
Payson is a beautiful city, but if change isn't made soon, Payson won't be able to compete economically with surrounding cities. The general plan has not been updated since 2003. The cities around us all have updated general plans and ongoing master plans. These cities are exploding with growth. Until a general plan is completed, developers and commercial businesses will not build in Payson. We do not have the tax base or roof tops needed for growth. Payson citizens need to support their local businesses. The money you spend at an establishment outside of Payson goes to that cities tax base. Are you doing all your shopping in Payson that you can, or are you going to other cities to do it? I realize that Payson doesn't have the selection of commercial businesses that other cities have, but if we spend in Payson, we will have a much better tax base for improving and adding infrastructure to our city.
