Re "Citrus Heights petition fights city hall removal" (Our Region, June 26): Currently, City Hall, the police department, Citrus Heights Community Center and the post office are all connected. Moving the City Hall across town is ridiculous. Let Dignity Health build on the other site or on one of several large vacated retail sites. I think there are also two other major concerns. First, why does the Citrus Heights City Council feel their point of view is the only one to be considered? They were elected to serve the community, not themselves. After all, this isn't Sacramento, where the City Council decided to mortgage parking revenue for 35 years without a public vote. This project needs to be voted on by the residents of Citrus Heights.

Second, to move City Hall and enter into a relationship with a business would seem to be a conflict of interest, or at best an unfair advantage to Dignity Health over other such organizations.
