Letter: Courthouse should be where people are

I am now more confused in the decision to put a courthouse in Colorado City instead of Littlefield/Beaver Dam and Scenic area. So, lets put it in a town that is in question of its very existence. Between the federal government taking the land away from the FLDS church to the church that already took the land away from the citizens. This is a town that really was not part of the state, was it? How did it incorporate and not the Beaver Dam/Littlefield and Scenic areas? There are more residents here than in Colorado City. They just broke ground on a healthcare center and there are plans for the area to grow and we do not put the courthouse there?
