I think it is only fair and equitable to give the city it's due. The petition falls a few votes short but it is quite obvious that the financing is a divisive issue among city residents and non residents who write letters or sign petitions. I fall among the non city residents who believe in the concept but not in the financing. Having said that, the city is to be commended for having the city attorney, not a politician, saying they would extend the petition time. That shows to me a sense of fair play on the city's part and while we can disagree, I think most of us have what is in the areas best interest at heart. While don't we all stop, take a breather, and let things unfold at the will of the people.
