ACTION LINE: How does AAFES decide on cigarette prices?

October 22, 2015

Q: I am surprised that cigarettes are $10 a carton cheaper at Nellis AFB, Nevada, and MacDill AFB, Florida, and several other bases I have visited than they are at Hill AFB. I was told today that the state “regulates” the price. How can Utah regulate the price on a federal reservation?



ACTION LINE: Pedestrian safety is a top priority on base

October 22, 2015

Q: I am writing this because I have had enough of the near misses that have been occurring at the cross walk in front of Building 503. People are continuing to run the red light while people are trying to cross the street and there have been several near misses. We, as a group, have brought this to the attention of our Voluntary Protection Program reps, Traffic Council and our upper management, and absolutely nothing is getting resolved. If I need to start carrying a rock and throwing it through the window of the cars that nearly hit me, I will.

Action Line: Irrigation helped establish sod, will be curtailed now

October 8, 2015

Q: The sprinklers on the southwest side of Bldg. 225 are on every night. This has been going on almost all summer. I don’t think that part of the grass needs that much water.



ACTION LINE: How does Hill’s Exchange Express set gas prices?

October 8, 2015

Q: I am writing this concerning the gasoline prices at the Base Exchange (BX). I perceive a pattern of raising prices just prior to paydays. Last Wednesday before the civilian payday, while the media are announcing lower oil prices, gas at the BX rose 16 cents a gallon (mid-grade) between 2:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. I do not believe there was a new delivery that late in the day. At every other base I have been, the prices are lower than the local prices except Hill. It doesn’t seem right. Our military should be getting a break.

ACTION LINE: West Gate road markings could be better

September 24, 2015

Q:The outbound traffic markings on the road immediately outside the West Gate are not painted appropriately. In my opinion, this is a safety hazard and has nearly caused an accident on more than one occasion as people rush to get off base.
