    I was always told that smell in SLC was from the lake.

    I think I now know what it really is.

    " flooded parking spots"?
    Why should taxpayers be on the hook for poor construction? In this day and age of laser measuring systems and GPS and laser guided graders and earth movers, it's easier than ever to build streets and parking lots. The contractor that screwed this up in the first place needs to pay to redo his poor job. Unless, of course, he's kin to a public official.

    Let's not forget that Dell Loy Hansen was going to build that stadium with 100% private money. SLC waffled around, and he took his money down to Herriman where they actually wanted private investment. His stadium in Herriman opens later this month.

    1.1 million, that's pocket change. Beware of cost overruns on huge ticket items like the prison.

    One can't help but wonder who exactly was in charge of this whole thing. The issues don't seem so complex that they shouldn't have been identified early on. But the fixes...follow the money...why does it cost a quarter of a million dollars to put in a chain-link fence so children can't access the east area of the stands? This whole thing, after millions were donated by several entities, needs an audit. The attitude seems to be that since the tax payers are funding large portions of it, no accountability is necessary. And so far, that seems to have been a correct assumption.

    People that survive off the taxpayer have a very odd view of what "profit" means.
