The year 2011 had its challenges but Logan Mayor Randy Watts says the city was able to stay afloat and make sure that in no way was it financially over-extended. In his State of the City address Tuesday night, Watts said as revenues improve he believes more money should be put into capital improvements, using some Community Development Block Grant money for curb and sidewalk enhancement. “We will continue to be closely monitoring health care costs and look at even better ways to save revenue through even better practices,” Watts said. “We will be more aggressive with trail systems within Logan City and Logan Canyon.” Watts also said there will be ongoing discussions about the relationship Logan has with the recreation center attached to Logan High School. “We will look at the current arrangement of the recreation center and with guidance from Russ Akina evaluate the financial upgrades needed for the building.” Mayor Watts detailed additional issues facing the city on KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday.
