We have all caught a glimpse of the monster before. It might have appeared in different forms - traffic cops, long lines at city court, intrusive police, inconsistent trash pickup - but the case remains we have undoubtedly all had a run-in at some point with the scary, seemingly invincible monster. We are, of course, talking about the establishment, the man, the biggest slice of Government Cheese . . . the City of Tucson!
But, in the spirit of the Holidays - or maybe because they've seen the way of their ways in "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" - city officials have given University of Arizona students and other Tucson residents an early present. A new hotline (791-5843) was recently established to give property renters an ally in the continuing battle between landlord and tenant. Now, student renters can call upon the "monster" to help them in the event that their property managers are not responding to requests for maintenance work.
