The police and other departments could go into one of the buildings that have been deemed acceptable and "make do" until suitable alterations could be afforded. They
surely would rather do that than be in their temporary accommodations for the time being and then back into the city building with no hope of a better place to work. It is foolish to plan to move these departments back into the city building when there are better alternatives. All the money already wasted on the city building would have gone a long way toward necessary remodeling.
And the traffic situation. Quit acting like children about who is to make the decisions. The city councilmen, the mayor and the traffic planning commission could all
sit down around a table and work out the needs — one traffic light at a time, if need be. It's not worth fighting over. Put aside your pettiness and get it worked out.
It seems it is easy to discuss a tax increase and all agree. When you can work out these other problems as easily, then perhaps you will be worthy of your office.
