Concerns with Stansbury Service Agency

I am writing to express my deep concern over the way the Stansbury Service Agency is being run. It is clear that the agency is like a boat without a helm. They have a master plan but they do not follow it. They seem to do as they please, even when it is clear that it goes against the wishes of the residents they are supposed to serve.

As an example, the number one item that residents voted for was a splash pad. However, the agency decided to install pickleball courts instead. Not only do these courts annoy those who live around them, but they were installed despite the fact that several residents have been living in the area for almost a decade. This is just one example of the agency’s disregard for the wishes of the people they are supposed to serve.

Furthermore, the agency seems to be deceitful in the way they operate. They often move forward with projects when no one is around and are quick to dismiss concerns raised by affected residents. This shows a lack of accountability and consistency. 

The most egregious example of this lack of accountability is the installation of bright lights on the pickleball courts. Stansbury Park is known for its observatory and dark skies, yet the agency chose to install the brightest lights they could find on the courts. This move goes against the very spirit of the community and shows a blatant disregard for the wishes of the residents. Now the residents that are in extremely close proximity to the courts are left dealing with the noise that exceeds county ordinance as well as the amount of hours allowed to carry on. 

In conclusion, it is clear that the Stansbury Service Agency needs to be held accountable for their actions. They must listen to the wishes of the residents they serve and follow through on their promises. The agency needs to be more transparent in their operations and take the concerns of the community seriously. I hope that this letter serves as a wake-up call to the agency and that they will take action to correct their course.
