Editor, Index-Tribune:

Dear City Council: We were impressed by the appeal process that took place at the City Council meeting Monday evening (Feb. 3). While we did not agree with your finding, we felt that we had a full hearing.

We often feel that many of our government officials, from the very top down, try to push things down the road or off to the corner so that decision making does not fall to them. It is good to see that you have taken responsibility.

Thank you for your courtesy and forthright decision making. We appreciate that our small town is in such decent hands.

Simon and Kimberly Blattner
