Thats all agood about he training but any one that has been there over a year all ready knows how to fill a expence report. The big question is are they going to pay any of this back or is the Govner going to sweep this onder the rug to? Just have to wait and se.

The GSA recently spent over $800,000 of taxpayer dollars on an extravagant "conference" off of the Las Vegas Strip. The big question is are they going to pay any of this back to the taxpayers? Sounds like the UDOT is following the example set by Big Brother.

After reading all of UDOTs problems I wonder if our Governor should take a closer look at their management.

They do not seem to be bound by the same rules and regulations that each of us need to abide by.

Example for the last two nights UDOT has been working on I 215 near my house. Around two in the morning they start up the jack hammers. I called the Unified Police Department and the Highway Patrol both said they were unable to do anything about it.

Can you imagine any other organization using jack hammers at 0200 in the morning and no one is able to do anything about it?

So who does UDOT management ultimately answer to? It certainly not the citizens or the local police nor the highway patrol.

I guess it all depends on "Whose Ox is being gored"

I feel my rights are being violated.
