According to a published news story in the Zocalo, Mayor Chad Foster has indicated that they are attempting to come to an agreement concerning the County debt and its payment so that emergency services and trash collection can be restored. The matter was taken before the court and a mediator, Roberto Gonzalez, was appointed to mediate between the City and County to try and resolve this matter. If the matter is not resolved, the court could then impose a decision. According to the story, City manager Glen Stames responded to Judge Jose Aranda saying that Aranda worries more about his public image than the necessities of the people he represents. Foster acknowledge that the measures taken by the City are drastic but that something had to be done in light of the County Commissioners refusal to cover the County's debt to the City.
