Nick Sampinos recommended that the City work with the County and other entities. This would show the CIB and other funding agencies that all governmental entities are coordinating their efforts and avoiding duplication of services. Every time a meeting is held upstate, the issue is brought up of how small our community is, and why we have so many agencies duplicating efforts and expenses.
