Meeting muddle in Pattison

By Lillie Ruby

Pattison City Council was a muddle of mis-actions Monday. Alderman Joe Garcia once again voted against paying park maintenance invoices to re-emphasize that the city still has not resolved issues he raised about the park. Months ago, Alderman Garcia asked that title to the city’s park be established after doubt was expressed about actual ownership of the city’s only park.
