PSJ Commissioners balk on Eastern waiver

“Let’s make a policy; I want us to remain fair,” Kennedy said.

Buzzett said Kennedy was “comparing apples and oranges.”

Buzzett noted that Eastern was bringing as many as 200 jobs to the community.

“Job creation makes the difference here,” Buzzett said. “You have to look at the job creation. We need to think long and hard about it.”

Commissioner Bo Patterson said he was ready to vote and could not completely understand any underlying resistance.

“All I’ve heard since I’ve been on this board is jobs, jobs, jobs,” Patterson said. “I see no reason to put this off.”

Patterson seemed to mull a formal motion until Mayor Mel Magidson said if he desired to make sure he had the needed three votes.
