An Alternate Universe

One of the things Marc Dashield may be working on as new township manager in Montclair is the possible acquisition of a senior center facility. Click here to see a report from the outgoing manager on the senior center issue.

Oh my, if only us folks in the Queen City could get such detail on an issue!

In early 2010, we are still awaiting resolution of the city budget and a final outcome on The Monarch, among other things. Wouldn't it be nice to have some detailed reports on the city web site?

Of course, information does not always lead to action, as Westfield's multi-decade agonizing over a parking deck will attest. Still, a comprehensive report such as the one linked above provides a great basis for community dialogue.

Maybe our next city administrator will have the kind of skills to produce such reports and to get the citizens engaged in decision-making.

Think this is a case of someone coming to work to do a job as opposed to "showing up" to get a paycheck?
