Dealer deserves better

For sheer arrogance and typical governmental bureaucracy gone haywire, the city’s dealings with Tom and Matt Weaver and their new facility on Idaho-Maryland take the cake.

I’ve always thought that the role of government should be to welcome a business once approval has been given and not to make things more difficult.

Obiously, that has not been the case in this instance.

There should be a limit on how many hoops the Weavers should have to dance through before they can open their business, and this latest is certainly one of them

One final question … Is the city going to pay interest on the $120,000 it plans on holding unto until the signal is completed? If the city does not trust Mr. Weaver at this point in this soap opera, it should never have approved the project in the first place. Sadly, that does not seem to be the way the Grass Valley city council and others in the bureaucracy conduct business.
