Will Cotati city leaders follow the lead of Mayor Carty Finkbeiner of Toledo, Ohio ? Or will they simply wait for President Obama to come to the rescue? Council member Barich has repeatedly requested that the city lead the charge with city volunteers to fill the void left from significant city cutbacks in basic services. But to date, Barich's pleas have been ignored by city management and city leaders citing that it is just too difficult to train volunteers to do the most menial of tasks, and fearing liability issues might result from possible injuries that may result from city volunteers picking up the slack. Cotati has no current plans to use city volunteers in any significant way to maintain pride in Cotati.
