UPDATE: Tail end of dog bite story's tale

The West End resident's dog bit tale reported in Plainfield Today in November (see here and here) has finally come to an end.

An email informs me that Health Officer Mark Colicchio personally called the victim's wife December 3rd, advising the dog that bit her husband is now up-to-date with its shots and the owner has been issued a summons.

Colicchio, a stand-up guy, apologized for not having returned her initial call sooner.

All's well that ends well.

All's well that ends well? I don't think so! Why wasn't the call returned expeditiously by the Health Officer in the first place? Are you trying to tell me that when someone calls in with a dog-bite of ANY kind, it isn't important enough to warrant a phone call ASAP? It's the 21st century. Call forwarding to his mobile phone, yes this now happens in 2010.
Total lack of professionalism in my opinion. Not all's well that ends well.

Considering the lack of service we receive by most departments in Plainfield, the fact that Mark called was, in my opinion, professional and the right thing to do. No matter how you feel about the operating model (or lack of) in City Hall, it is good to know that my money pays people who do the right thing.
