Letter: Zipline misrepresented Williams

To the editor:

I would like to personally thank vice mayor Don Dent and councilmen Jim Wurgler, Frank McNelly and Lee Payne for wisely voting against the Route 66 Zipline renewal. I feel that the zipline did not represent Williams appropriately.

Nate Lambert

Bottom line is it didn't make any money for the city. No need to keep it just to let a contractor mooch off city property and make a few bucks. If the taxpayer doesn't benefit, we don't need it.

It means, Thee, that Williams is a western town near the Grand Canyon. Cowboys never rode on a zip line. The zip line should have been in the forest, maybe by the ski area.

Nate, you are 100% right!! The zipline represented a clear departure from the stuck-in-the-past tourist trap ways this town has built itself on. The zipline was a way for younger families with children between 8-18 to enjoy a thrill and see our town from a unique perspective. With the removal of the zipline, the younger visitors to our town will have to go back to what this town wants, which is sitting around listening to music made 60+ years ago at overpriced restaurants. Thank you, Williams City Council for representing the desires of this town!

Funny! Williams is a mix. Cars(route 66) and cowboys and Mountain men and trains. Heck I hear stuff about Jousting and knights!
The papers cover is about a ski resort!
The zip line just should have run the whole length of the main street. It was to short of a ride for the money. You had to really look just to notice it. Another source of tax money and a few jobs bites the dust. Other activity'[s to attract tourist to fill our mostly empty hotels is needed.
