The long-standing and often bitter personality clash between Judge Lence and Chief Henley has unfortunately resulted in the removal of both men from their posts. v - The need for Mayor Uriarte's decision is lamentable but the deed is justifiable. It had become increasingly apparent that the two antagonists were making no headway in reconciling their differences. The animosity was affecting not only the individuals but their respective departments as well. When such negative interaction rises above a personal level, it is time to act:vVv;;v"'' :'!; Mayor Uriarte has been in office barely two months yet he was unafraid to take decisive action and this, we feel, is encouraging. Forced to choose between the continuation of circumstances cir-cumstances detrimental to the welfare of the community and the extremely unpleasant task of relieving two capable public servants; the mayor bit the; bullet and moved in the town's best interests. in-terests. This is precisely what he was elected to do. M, Now! that the dye has been cast, we urge an earnest search for the most qualified replacement available to fill the police chief vacancy. The search should certainly extend beyond the confines of Park City and even Salt LakeCity. This is no reflection on the capabilities of our police force but rather an affirmation that experience ex-perience is an invaluable asset. The youth and enthusiasm of our young officers would be highly complemented by the guiding force of an experienced ex-perienced hand,v',:''';v:Jl.v:v,vv:'Vv,:; ' A police force is at once a city's most potent and most vulnerable limb. It is called upon to react instantly to crisis situations. Yet, one miscalculation can negate years of com pe ten' service. It is this delicate balance that demands ' a steadying influence that has "been there before." We ask that no pains be spared in obtaining the leadership our police force deserves and our city requires. Foes Letter I en i ki Lowered jo Park City's building con-tractors con-tractors registration fee wa :. lowered from $100 to $10 bjjf ' the city i council at their , Thursday, Jan. 8, meeting.' ' The $100 registration fee was intended to provide the city with building control and a source of revenue but it has been ineffective on both counts according to City Manager Wayne Matthews. Mathews explained that since the registration fee is required of every contractor who undertakes a job in Park City, regardless of size, it was often avoided by the smaller contractors. The city manager reasoned that by lowering the cost of registration the city would not only maintain more efficient ef-ficient control of the contractors con-tractors but would also raise more revenue in the long run. The city council agreed and ' passed the resolution' unanimously. In other licensing business, . the council acted - upon a decision made last year but left dormant to lower the business license fee from $75 to $50. The Editor Dear Editor: While skiing one day, it occurred to me that it would be great if people could ski to music. I know that the cost of a speaker system on each of Park City's ski runs would be outrageous, so here is my tidea: ' To set up speakers on a major run, which can be skied on by most everyong (such as Payday or Prospector).; ; People would bring their own records, or tapes, and "buy" time in which to play each side. This would be about an hour, and could be bought for say, $2.50. After a while (hopefully) this would pay for itself, and peryhaps soon part of the money, or all of it could be donated to the U.S. Ski Team. KM. . The . . NecospapeR Publisher J.

Howard Uriarte Tom Johnson Pete Soils 'Oct " Brenda McAdams HowHboutlt? Do You Think Park City Has A Dog Problem? Howard Uriarte Definitelly. The problem wouldn't be so bad if people kept the dogs in their yard or on a leash but they're always running around. .Look right now, there are four in front of the Post Office. Last year, up at the Woodside Chalets, a Saint Bernard attacked a little girl, it's things like that make the dogs a problem. ; Tom Hall, Oscar and Asian No, as long as there aren't more than two dogs per person. I think they should be on a leash if they are going to create problems. I don't let my dogs loose. Personally, I'd be the first to want them on a leash if they were getting into other people's business. Tom Johnston' I think people should be able to have dogs if they like, maybe they could be controlled a little more by the people that own them. They don't bother me, though. I like dogs. No, I don't have a dog. Meyrt Arko - Do we have a dog problem! My gosh you can't even walk down the street without finding dog (expletive deleted) all over, to put it bluntly. We have two dogs up on our street somebody must have abandoned and they're in our yard constantly. It's definitely a problem. Pete Soils '. Sure we have a dog problem. There are just too many dogs running loose at night. You can't put a garbage sack out. You have to put it in a can. I have a little house dog. Nina Mileti No, not really. The dogs in town don't bother me at all. I have a dog but he's not tied up because he doesn't run away from the house. If they're mean dogs they should be tied up. Brenda McAdams There seems to be a lot of stray ones just running around town. They don't bother me but it seems like many of them don't have homes and just have to live on the street. People just don't care about them. Sharon Huger I don't see who they are bothering. If the town hao lot of meandos then I would be worried but the dogfjwmdffeff-taare pretty neat. They're not starving to death since none of them seem to be very skinny so they're being taken care of I Reduction In Sales Tax And Possible Tax Rebate Highlight Budget Message A reduction in the state sales tax and a possible income in-come tax rebate highlight Utah Governor Calvin L. Rampton's Budget Message recommendations made to the Utah Legislature Monday. Mon-day. The Governor commended com-mended the lawmakers for their past actions which have helped provide the state with a modest surplus and certainly cer-tainly no need for an increase in taxes. The Governor also commented com-mented on the $70 million bond issue, authorized by last year's Legislature,' which sold at 5.29 percent one of the lowest interest rates on comparable bond issues sold in the nation during the decade of the seventies. The tax cut proposal made by Governor Rampton would exempt prescription drugs from the state sales tax. He also recommended that $5 million of the state's current $10 million surplus be carried over to next year in light of the uncertain state of the national economy and questions about other future resources of revenue. If the $5 million is not carried over, the Governor said, it should be "returned to the taxpayers in the form of a credit on their individual income taxes." Utah's first three-term Governor said costs such as postage, utilities, the un certain future of revenue sharing and the reduction or elimination of several federal grants have made this the most difficult budget for him to prepare in his tenure as Chief Executive. The i Governor also recommended that a severance tax on coal not be enacted this year, but that it be seriously considered in the near future. He said . a severance tax on coal now would be simply passed on to Utah consumers because we use nearly all our current production here in the state. When we start exporting a larger percentage of our coal or energy produced from coal, we should then impose a severance tax equal to that on oil and natural gas, the Governor said. . A cost-of-living increase of 7.8 .percent, as required by law, is built . into each department's budget for state employee's salaries the Governor noted, and the Weighted Pupil Unit, the basis on which state money for education is computed, is recommended to go from the current level of $621 to $684 an increase of slightly more than 10 percent. Among other items recommended by the Governor are: a $3.5 million categorical grant to be used for reducing classroom loads in grades 1-3; an increase of over 13 percent in state A wit n futile j&otu e jn 3 Tom Hall, Oscar, and Meyrt Arko I MI If 1 S I Nina MNoti (v DEADLINE Businesses which have not paid their business license fee by January 15 will be closed down by the city.
