Fast Tract; I agree with this decision by the city. It is good. Yet I must complain about the way the city handles its building permits. Why in this day and age does the city of Patterson farm out all blue prints and building permits to an out of State private company for approval on our own local code requirements? I don't think Arizona will have a big shaker coming their way soon, so why do they say we can build? Patterson makes enough revenue to hire its own plan checkers and stop this insane three to four month wait for plan approvals. Its election year; City Council can you hear us now? Lawrence Cline, Patterson resident

Well said, Ron. It seems we've regressed to the bad old days - somewhat. Suspicion of, rather than cooperation with, City staff has been a recurring theme with a few past council members and you are absolutely correct about the morale eroding aspect of that path. As a former City staff member I can attest to the humiliation felt when our integrity was called into question. As for the embarrassing er . . . . exchange of compliments at the meeting, we know that Patterson isn't unique in that regard. Representational government by elected officials isn't perfect, it's just the best we've come up with so far. The fact that were no worse or better than any other municipality doesn't make this lack of civility any less embarrassing, but we know we can do better, and we should. Patrick Bodin, New Mexico USA
