The point of this DNJ editorial is the fact that the city needs to get it together. Here’s the very end of the editorial by the Daily News Journal:
… At the same time, the city failed to realize Duggin was running a quarry operation in violation of its zoning ordinance while getting free water. La Vergne’s 27,000-plus residents deserve better management in City Hall, and it is the Mayor and Board of Aldermen’s job to provide that. In that arena, the board is proving to be negligent to the point of embarrassment.
While I have to applaud La Vergne for it’s outstanding work in helping residents during the flooding with its emergency operations, it doesn’t hurt to be reminded that the day-to-day operations should also be handled with proper care.
