Nuclear Waste Summary
by Tricia Jack, Jordan Robertson

In 1997 Private Fuel Storage (PFS) negotiated a deal with the Skull Valley Goshutes and submitted an application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for a license to store spent fuel on the Skull Valley reservation about 50 miles from Salt Lake City.

The Public Sector Service Dilemma
by Ken Embley

Question—when can you do something that is the right thing to do and get yourself in trouble for doing so? Answer—when you lead your agency in the provision of effective and efficient public service. The hope—is to do the right thing anyway.

Ah…the public sector service dilemma—do you really provide effective and efficient one-on-one service to citizens utilizing the limited resources available to an agency while other critical duties and responsibilities go undone.
