Bluff incorporation feasibility study is sound, says author
Bonneville Research has responded to questions regarding the study that looked at the feasibility of incorporating Bluff.
Bob Springmeyer, chairman of Bonneville Research, sent the response and stated, "Please accept my fact-based response to the inaccurate challenges to the Bonneville Research Incorporation Feasibility Study."
A copy of the study, in addition to correspondence regarding the study, is attached.
An October 18 article in the San Juan Record discussed the feasibility study and questions raised about it by San Juan County Administrator Kelly Pehrson. Pehrson suggests that the cost to maintain a separate municipality may be higher than the study indicates.
Springmeyer stands behind the results of the feasibility study, which states: "The results of this study indicate that-incorporation is feasible for the Bluff Study Area… This action will allow the newly Town of Bluff to maintain current service and budget levels while keeping property taxes at their current level without reducing levels of service."
