City administrator considers state of community

So why, if Salida’s fiscal health is strong, is the emotional state of the community in such turmoil? The voters have determined in strong numbers that the community will not pursue a home-rule charter. For some, this reflects a lack of trust in the current local government and for others constructive effort on a charter did not seem possible in light of the apparent anger and hostility.
