This is a relevant professional topic, but I didn't know where to put it.
It's 2:43 local time and I have been trying to reach a City of 4,000 people for the last 15 minutes.
I looked for a City website... NO DICE;
I found a City Hall phone number and called... NO DICE (it range a dozen times and no answering machine);
I found an e-mail address for the City Clerk and my e-mail got kicked back;
I'm about to call 911.
I know that there are private sector entities that are just as hard to contact, but I expect more from a local unit of government. I guarantee you that doesn't happen here. Do you have any similar experiences? I also hear from contractors that my City is one of the easiest to do work in because of your responsiveness in the permitting process.
Thoughts... experiences.... frustrations....
