I attended the public meeting for the Sun Valley ADMP last night. …Pat did a very good job presenting the complex information on the hazards and proposed solutions for alluvial fans in a format that was understandable to the layman. This was demonstrated by the numerous and highly complementary verbal comments I received from individuals at the meeting on their performance.

I need to pass along a compliment. [They] said that this report is “one of the best [they’ve] ever read”, especially for a government document.
