Chapter 3: The Inter-organizational Context of Public Administration Tiffany Watt Assignment 3 September 22, 2011 PA 101 – E01 Instructions: You are city manager for a medium-sized community in the Northwest.

It would require local police departments in the state to perform additional spot inspections of bars and restaurants serving alcohol after midnight. Although you think the cause is an important one, you simply don’t have the resources in your police department to do this. The state is not willing to provide more money. What would you do?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
