Let me see if I understand this balanced reporting. The County touts its reduced permit fees and streamlined permitting, and The Columbian demands that Commissioners show the economic payback. The City of Vancouver ALSO touts reduced permit fees and streamlined permitting. Has The Columbian demanded the same payback analysis from Mayor Leavitt?
