Now that a judge has ordered the city and county to resume mediation regarding an SDS agreement, it is my hope the two governments will move in an expeditious, OPEN manner …. in other words I hope mediation will take place publicly, not behind closed doors.
I realize the law permits this process to take place out of the public eye; however, it is not required. Considering what has happened up to this point, I feel the two governments owe us taxpayers the right to personally observe and hear the various arguments, rather than read about them from a biased perspective.
From this point forward, I beg for transparency. It’s time for both governments to do some ‘give & take’ and end a dispute that continues to waste our tax dollars.
