In my many years of working with city governments I have never experienced the amount of cooperation and assistance Cottage Grove gave
us to help us hit our deadline. We could not have done it without your help. In addition, everyone on our management staff want to convey how good it feels to work with a
municipality that has a pro business philosophy.
