I have to admit I don't see the relationship between the two departments; Library and Rec. However, if the money to fund two departments does not exist - then common sense suggests a consolidation of sort is in order. The letting go of one department head, and leaving the base / deck plate people in place is NOT ALWAYS a negative to the organization.

respectfully i ask this question, - how many persons concerned have or are willing to take the time to go and speak before the City Council?

you may think they know how you feel, but hearing how you feel, oh, now that makes a difference.

Do we learn in from past mistakes? Apparently not in Chula Vista.

It is very obvious that the City Council does not care what the public wants or thinks is good for the community. All but one of the comments at the council meeting on Tuesday night was against the merger. Many of the comments were very passionate but to no avail. I hope there will be some way in the next week to make the council see the error of their ways and reverse their decision.
This merger is not good for either organization and I greatly fear what will happen if the library and parks and rec are combined.
If the council will not listen to the public they should at least listen to the City Manager.

I believe this was tried before and at an enormous cost the experiment was deemed a failure. What makes the City think they can make it work this time?
