Logan candidates discuss needs of west side

Dean Quayle says he wants to hang on to the seat on the Logan Municipal Council that he’s had since former councilmember Steve Thompson left before his term expired. Quayle says one of the main reasons he’s running is because there’s been no representation on the council from northwest Logan for many years. He says there are serious needs on the west side where there is density but not infrastructure.Another council candidate, Tony Wegener who lives on the east side but works in southwest Logan, agrees. He says one of his employees, who is disabled, has to walk in the street to get to work. “And people who want to go to church, in that part of the neighborhood, have to walk in the middle of the street to go to church or go to school and there’s miles and miles,” says Wegener.In a candidate debate hosted by 610 KVNU and CacheValleyDaily.com, Wegener said that this one neighborhood is not an isolated case. “Jay Nielsen told me that there’s 72 miles collectively of missing curbs, gutters and sidewalks in Logan City,” he said. “It’s a shame. And it’s mainly on the west side.”
