"The Doofies:" Top 10 Doofiest Things that Utah Cities Did in 2007

We're finally getting around to awarding our 1st Annual Doofies: The Top 10 Doofiest Things that Utah City Officials did in 2007. Better late than never, right? We undoubtedly forgot some, but the 2007 Doofies go to:

10. Lehi, for trying to squelch the public's right to inspect public documents by raising its search fees to up to $50 per hour. Real subtle.

9. Ruby's Inn, for incorporating itself into a city. Yes, our legislature allowed it, but come on--don't get us on The Colbert Report, Dude.

8. Sandy, for spending taxpayer money on what may be the worst radio PR campaign ad in history. ("Golly, yuk, yuk, come on down and milk the cows down here in adorable ol' Sandy...")

7. Bluffdale, for turning City Council-Mayor disputes into an Olympic event, at least til they got a new council last November.

6. Provo, for flying the city flag at half mast upon BYU student Camille Cleverley's death. We all hoped for the best, we were all saddened by the outcome, but what about other Provoans who have met tragic fates?

5. Draper, for demonstrating a complete inability to regulate, control, or protect its residents from, shady developers.

4. Orem, for assigning a cop -- an actual police officer -- to spend time enforcing lawn watering. Not to mention what happened next.

3. Eagle Mountain--enough said.

2. Sandy, for promising Dave Checketts and Real Salt Lake yet another $10 million in taxpayer money that depended on Salt Lake County paying $6 million of it -- and then actually having the nerve to ask the County for it.

1. Tooele, for going door to door to take away people's extra pets, regardless of whether anyone had complained. Don't you have some lawns to monitor?
