City is responsible for downtown issues

OlympiaJune 18, 2013 

In response to the “secret shopper” story, I would like to know why the Olympia City Council doesn’t look at downtown business from the customers’ perspective?

The City Council has been responsible for most of the negative experiences that the customers are having now. Allowing the street people to sit and lie on the sidewalk all these years without acting sooner against it, and the parking meter fiasco ... that has really turned off the customers.

So now that the mistake has been made, will they correct it?

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news.
