A Hotel, a Party Plan, and a Dog – 2017

A hotel, a party plan, and a dog might seem like three unconnected things (and normally they are, unless one is describing a dog show, I suppose).

In Whitewater, however, they’re connected: as items on the same agenda tonight at Common Council, and more generally as tactical solutions to a systemic problem: Whitewater’s economy is stagnant, the community divided along class lines, and the concept of genuine community enforcement in town isn’t even nominally convincing.

Into these conditions come discussions about a hotel, a party plan, and a canine. The city will hear more about all three tonight, but the discussions will be less revealing of where the city’s going (as we’re past the point where most sudden moves are worth much) than they will be of the current level of municipal management, such as it is.
