Action sought on model for economy of small Utah communities — not ‘dust’

Bill Hickman is kicking up more dust in insisting that a single community be a model for rural economic development in Utah.

On Wednesday, the state senator continued to push that concept, expounding on his desire to "not just create dust" and stressing to a top economic development official that he wants to see action on the matter.

Hickman, R-St. George and co-chairman of the Workforce Services and Economic Development Interim Committee, on Wednesday told the group about his desire for Beaver or some other community to be a "poster child" for economic development programs so that other rural communities could better know what programs and projects work.

His comments echoed his remarks Tuesday to the Rural Development Legislative Liaison Committee, when he stressed action is needed instead of past work that has done nothing but "just create a lot of dust."
