I’m not taking sides in Cotati’s debate over taffic roundabouts on Old Redwood Highway – not yet anyway – but I’m puzzled by Rancho Adobe Fire Chief Frank Treanor’s explanation for opposing “this ill-conceived plan.”
Treanor told Staff Writer Jeremy Hay he’s upset that City Manager Dianne Thompson didn’t invite him to review the plan, conceding “maybe there’s some way it would work.” (You can read the story here.) OK, maybe Thompson should have asked. But it couldn’t take more than five minutes to walk across La Plaza Park from the fire station to City Hall, where the plan is a public record. Wouldn’t it add some more weight to the Fire Department’s opposition if the chief actually looked at the plan?
