Watts ‘proud’ of police department and city hall moves

As he starts the second year of his second four-year term, Logan Mayor Randy Watts says he feels good about what has happened since he took over the office. On KVNU’s For the People program Thursday, Watts said early-on he took a lot of heat for taking the police department out of the Justice building and into a new facility.”Fifty-four thousand square feet were camped over here at the library,” Watts explained. “I have one conference room. We look very unprofessional. The lighting was terrible. There was no outside windows to most of those rooms. “We did it without increasing any tax revenues. We basically did it and added 25,000 square feet to that existing building and I’m proud of that move.”Watts says not just the police department but other departments have taken pride in the project, attitudes have improved and there is more efficiency in the operations since Logan City Hall moved into the Justice Building. Watts says there will not have to be talk about a new city hall for the next 50 years.
