Letter: Holladay should disclose Cotton Bottom deal
First Published Apr 11 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Apr 11 2014 01:01 am

The city of Holladay has just announced that it has purchased in a private transaction the old restaurant known as "Cotton Bottom" for a fire station and other ill-defined uses. But with the announcement it has said that details of the purchase will not be disclosed.

Why in this age of transparent democracy would members of a City Council in a supposedly modern boutique and fairly new city think that they are not answerable to the taxpayers? What are they trying to hide? Who are they trying to protect?

Perhaps if they hear from a roused citizenry they will relent and tell us all the truth, even though it may prove embarrassing to some or all of the council members. The citizens deserve the truth from this vaunted, small, close-to-home, supposedly democratic government.
