The Clinic seems to be controlling this whole thing. Why are you allowing the Clinic to force this on Lakewood?
The fact is that this agreement is the product of several months of intensive negotiations. All parties gave a little and gained a lot and all negotiations took into account the parties’ respective legal rights and obligations under the 1996 governing documents. The result is a better deal for the City of Lakewood and for our residents, to meet their health care needs today and into the future.
