Helper officials discuss city financial issues, concerns regarding UDOT contract

Helper Mayor Mike Dalpiaz and councilmembers PJ Jensen and Kirk Mascaro discuss the city's current contract with the Utah Department of Transportation regarding lighting the new overpass.

The city continues to review the contract with UDOT which the officials find unacceptable.

In the past, Helper illuminated the area where the overpass now stands with 10 lights. UDOT currently is illuminating the roadway with 30 lights at triple the wattage capacity.

Helper officials are concerned that city taxpayers are footing the bill for more than they should. The officials are also concerned about future maintenance problems with the lighting.

On Dec. 4, the council decided to have Helper City Attorney Gene Strait draft a letter to UDOT reporting that local officials find the current contract unacceptable.

'We want to be careful about asking to go into negotiations on the contract,' pointed out Mayor Dalpiaz during last week's regularly scheduled city council meeting. 'Because that means that we are willing to accept part of the document. I think we just need to say that we are not satisfied with the current contract.'
