"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange

When you call Vincennes City Hall you should expect a positive experience. The call is not to a call center on some other continent. It's a call to City Hall - you know in the old tire store down on Vigo Street. And when you get through? My experience is that you are treated professionally and even warmly. While every request can't be approved, Vincennes City Government seems to be a cooperation mode right now. It starts at the top and trickles down through the department employees.
It's tough dealing with a whole town that wants and wants. It's tough dealing with a town that really needs some things. It's tough dealing with a whole town that worries about safety and the economy. It's tough dealing with a population that has paid a bunch of money in taxes and wants it back in their neighborhood. And it would be a whole lot tougher on us out in those neighborhoods if when you did call City Hall you got the gruff runaround.
