Logan City weathering financial storm

Logan City’s new 2009-2010 fiscal budget goes into effect in less than a week, next Wednesday, July first. Mayor Randy Watts, who will be running for a second term this year, says he feels good about the budget and the city’s whole financial situation.On Tuesday’s “For the People” show Watts said Logan is a conservative city and he feels his philosophy will help the city weather the financial storm.”I want people to put in those hours and be productive, not reward people that aren’t doing that,” Watts said. He also said he wants to look at ways to conserve, “trim where we can trim, those that we could retire and not upset them, look at whether we really need to replace them or not.”Watts says he’s proud of the fact that Logan City has its 18-percent reserve fund which is allowed by the state. While some of the Utah cities say they will have to dig into fund balances this year, he is confident Logan City will not.
