    So much for the People’s Building. This is a total outrage as the people who work in the Hall, will be recreating and socializing with people outside of the Hall in their daily lives. Who and from what will we be protecting, with these ridiculous requirements? Government seems to be going into self preservation
    mode and I fear for We The People! PS. Mayor Coogan; PLEASE find another way to fund this impotent Govt. Aka. The Corporation “Fall River” without increased taxes or fees, we are already hanging by threads financially. I Will not sacrafice anymore than I already have. The money I have generated and paid into the system is a larger portion than what I have kept.
