    The Earthquake Resistance and Retro-Fitting Ordinance requires that money be 
    spent on design, engineering and construction of earthquake-resistant 
    buildings, and also on retro-fitting older buildings constructed before the 
    advent of modern techniques.
    
    When this ordinance is enacted, buildings are better able to withstand 
    tremors and shaking, and will sustain less damage during an earthquake. It 
    can be pricey though, since the monthly cost of this ordinance is based on 
    the number and types of buildings in the city.
    
    The Homeless Shelters Ordinance pays for shelters, soup lines, and basic 
    infrastructure to aid the city's less fortunate.
    
    The ordinance incurs a monthly cost based on city population. The money seems 
    well spent, as the city's overall land value actually increases, perhaps 
    because doing something positive for the least of people is uplifting.
    
    The Tourist Promotion Ordinance uses tried-and-true advertising techniques to 
    attract visitors to town. It also establishes a Welcome Center where guests 
    receive maps, brochures, and discount coupons that can be used at numerous 
    retail establishments in the city.
    
    When enacted, the treasury takes a monthly hit to pay for advertising 
    expenses in an amount based on population. Sims benefit from a stronger 
    Commercial demand, though they gripe about the traffic that the shutter-happy 
    tourists bring.
    
    The Conservation Corps is an organization responsible for maintaining the 
    natural beauty of the city. Armed with litter-stabbing sticks and plastic 
    trash bags, Sims of the Corps patrol city highways, streets and coastlines 
    hunting down unsightly trash.
    
    This ordinance is funded through a monthly fee based on the number of 
    polluting factories in the city. In addition to reducing pollution and 
    helping to attract clean industry, the Conservation Corps keeps teenagers 
    busy with positive activities and a sense of purpose, helping to reduce 
    crime.
    
    The Clean Industry Association is a consortium of cities that promote clean 
    industry throughout SimNation. A small monthly fee supports the association's 
    efforts to attract non-polluting industries, conduct research in waste 
    management, and act as a watchdog over polluting industrial sites.
    
    Many a new mayor has welcomed high-polluting industries into the city, only 
    to regret the eventual costs to the quality of life. Enacting this ordinance 
    will please ecologically-minded residents, but when polluting industries 
    start feeling the pressure, they may pack up their dirty bags and leave -- 
    which may be just what you're after.
    
    The Electronics Tax Incentive Ordinance is designed to attract electronics 
    companies to your city by subsidizing some of the taxes those companies would 
    otherwise pay. For cities only mildly attractive to the electronics industry, 
    this tax break gives high-tech firms reason to take a second look.
    
    The monthly cost of this subsidy can be pricey, as it is based on the number 
    of non-polluting manufacturers in the city. But if moving toward cleaner 
    industry is on your agenda, the financial hit may be worth it.
    
    The Aerospace Tax Incentive Ordinance is designed to attract developers of 
    aerospace materials to your city by subsidizing some of the taxes those 
    companies would otherwise pay. This may encourage demand for clean industry 
    in your city, depending on the growth of the aerospace industry.
    
    The monthly cost of this ordinance is based on the number of clean industries 
    in the city.
    
    The Electronics Job Fair Ordinance pays for an annual city-sponsored job 
    fair. Electronics companies view the job fair as a valuable way to find an 
    educated and experienced employee base, and are more likely to set up in 
    cities that hold one.
    
    Demand for clean industry increases when this ordinance is enacted, but the 
    city foots the bill which is a monthly fee based on population.
    
    The Biotech Tax Incentive Ordinance is designed to attract biotechnology 
    companies to your city by subsidizing a portion of the taxes those companies 
    would otherwise pay. This may encourage demand for clean industry, depending 
    on the growth of the biotechnology industry.
    
    The monthly cost of this ordinance is based on the number of clean industries 
    in the city.
    
    The Public Access Cable Ordinance pays for free local use of media facilities 
    by members of your community. Media companies are more likely to see your 
    city as a place where telecommunication skills are highly valued, and may be 
    more likely to move in, hoping to find an experienced employee base.
    
    Each month a fee is deducted from the city treasury, an amount based on 
    population. Its effect is an increase in demand for clean industry.
    
    The Industrial Waste Disposal Tax levies a tax on all Commercial and 
    Industrial interests doing business in the city to pay for special disposal 
    of Class 3 Refuse. To "share the burden," a flat tax is assessed to all 
    businesses regardless of the actual amount of Class 3 Refuse they produce. 
    All companies dislike this tax, particularly small business owners who feel 
    the flat tax structure is unfair.
    
    This ordinance brings monthly revenue into the treasury, an amount based on 
    the number of Commercial and Industrial buildings in the city. It tends to 
    lower Commercial and Industrial demand.
    
    The Mandatory Car Smogging Ordinance requires that any car driven comply in 
    principle with clean emissions standards as set by the SimNation Geo-Physical 
    Council of 1979.
    
    When this ordinance is enacted, air pollution levels drop. The city spends 
    money each month for administration of the program, an amount that varies 
    based on population. Since the cost of non-compliance falls upon the car 
    owners, a few Sims are always royally cheesed by this ordinance.
    
    The Clean Air Ordinance promotes techniques to reduce air pollution reduction 
    in all homes and businesses. Industry sees itself as the victim of this 
    measure, feeling pressured to clean up its own mess.
    
    This ordinance has a monthly cost, based on population. The overall effect is 
    to lower citywide air pollution.
    
    The Leaf Burning Ban Ordinance asks residents to refrain from setting outdoor 
    fires to dispose of piles of leaves.
    
    The result is a reduction of citywide air pollution and a lowering of 
    flammability. There is no cost associated with this ordinance, and it does 
    not bar Sims from burning leaves in their living rooms, should they choose to 
    do so.
    
    The Trash Presort Ordinance encourages Sims to separate their garbage for 
    more efficient recycling. Individual bins are provided for each of ninety-
    five refuse types, including toxic waste and synthetic plastics numbered one 
    through seventy-eight. Sims caught tossing trash into the wrong bin must 
    attend a six-week course, "Olfactory Identification of Trash Types."
    
    When this ordinance is enacted, the city pays a monthly cost, based on 
    population, but efficiency in Recycling Centers goes up considerably.
    
    The Lawn Chemical Ban forbids the use of any fertilizer that contains 
    Triphenel-Bichloral-Monodioxide, a compound that has been found to 
    contaminate the city's ground water. Although the chemical ban hinders 
    agricultural development, most Sims believe the reduction in water pollution 
    is for the greater good.
    
    Each month the city is charged a fee (based on population) to pay for 
    research and development of safer fertilizers, a move to appease farmers and 
    persnickety gardeners who rely on the 3P-2B-1D compound to control weeds.
    
    The Landfill Gas Recovery Project instructs the city to use available 
    technology to recover the natural gas that is a by-product of garbage 
    decomposition in a landfill. The city may, at its discretion, build and 
    maintain its own recovery plants, contract such recovery to local businesses, 
    or both. Any recovered natural gas will revert to the Utilities Department 
    for inclusion in the city's general power production, although the amounts 
    are not expected to be significant.
    
    When this ordinance is in effect, the city incurs a small monthly cost that 
    fluctuates with population. However, air pollution will be reduced by this 
    project, making the whole thing worthwhile.
    
    The Backyard Composting Ordinance establishes periodic neighborhood workshops 
    to train citizens in the techniques of composting, a process that converts 
    organic home refuse into a useful fertilizer.
    
    The monthly cost of this ordinance, based on Sim population, helps cover the 
    granola budget for workshop participants, and pays for tour guides at local 
    manure farms and worm ranches. It benefits the city by reducing citywide 
    garbage and by letting Sims experience the good feeling that comes when one 
    works the soil.
    
    The Paper Reduction Act reduces garbage levels in the city by calling 
    attention to the vast amount of paper wasted in the normal course of running 
    a business. It requires all production managers to file a fifty-page report 
    whenever paper usage at their business or factory exceeds, by ten percent or 
    more, the previous month's levels. These reports are to be typed on the 
    Standard Form 23/6-A (rev. 2), and must provide written justification for the 
    paper usage variance.
    
    The monthly cost of this ordinance, based on Sim population, pays to bind and 
    store these reports in public reading rooms. The ordinance is found to be an 
    effective means for reducing garbage production, because managers will do 
    "whatever it takes" to avoid writing a report.
    
    The Tire Recycling Ordinance requires that all discarded vehicular tires be 
    pulverized and incorporated into asphalt, in accordance with common road 
    engineering practices. This ordinance reduces both garbage production and the 
    cost of building new roads.
    
    A monthly fee, based on Sim population, is deducted from the treasury when 
    this ordinance is in effect. Funds pay for pulverizing the city's old tires, 
    and for delivery of the material to the Transportation Department for use in 
    road construction.
    
    The Farmer's Market Ordinance, the brainchild of the Urban and Rural Resource 
    Sharing Committee, asks the city to allocate a parcel of land where farmers 
    can sell fresh fruits and vegetables to the public at wholesale prices.
    
    There are no costs to the city for enacting this ordinance, and all its 
    effects are positive. It encourages farm development in nearby areas, and 
    gives Sims a place to go on Saturday mornings.
    
    Legalized Gambling allows the establishment of casinos offering card, table, 
    and mechanical games of chance as defined by the State "Right To Be Stupid 
    Act" of 1895 and amended the following year.
    
    The city regulates the vigorish and takes a percentage of profits from all 
    city gambling establishments each month. Even though gambling boosts the 
    treasury, it attracts unsavory types prone to petty crime.
    
    The Industrial Pollutant Impact Fee Ordinance assesses a monthly fee to each 
    polluting factory in the city. Fees are deposited into the city treasury with 
    the understanding that some day they may be needed to clean up dangerously 
    contaminated sites.
    
    Industry seems to resent government regulation in any form and some factories 
    may respond by moving to less restrictive cities.  As long as the ordinance 
    is in place, it may be difficult to persuade new industries to move in, 
    replacing those that leave.
    
    The Free Clinics Ordinance uses city funds to establish and maintain low-
    cost, high-efficiency clinics. Although they are open to the entire 
    citizenry, these clinics are generally frequented by members of the lower 
    economic strata, and thus treat a wide variety of ailments which would 
    otherwise go untreated.
    
    The monthly cost of this ordinance is based on population. It results in a 
    general rise in the city's health, and the sense of having done something 
    worthwhile.
    
    The Junior Sports Ordinance organizes after-school team sports for youths. 
    Uniforms are provided by various companies in the city in a spirit of co-
    operation with local government. Still, the ordinance costs the city a small 
    amount each month based on city population.
    
    This ordinance lowers crime in the city by giving young troublemakers a 
    positive outlet for impertinent creativity. All students in the league show a 
    marked increase in standardized test scores thanks to strict academic 
    requirements.
    
    The Nuclear Free Zone Ordinance spends a small amount of money per Sim to 
    promote alternatives to nuclear applications and to encourage replacement of 
    existing nuclear facilities. Politically charged and occasionally effectual, 
    this ordinance raises a city's aura by providing Sims with a feeling of 
    impact in an otherwise uncaring world.
    
    The Pro-Reading Ordinance promotes reading and writing in the city through 
    the use of tutors, special programs and other learning resources. All Sims, 
    but especially younger Sims, may take advantage of these free extra-
    curricular classes to improve reading skills, learn new skills, or just get 
    out of the house on occasion.
    
    The Pro-Reading Ordinance has a monthly cost based on city population. It 
    brings positive effects to the Sims including an increase in the city's 
    education level, and the ability to discuss Proust.
    
    The Public Smoking Ban outlaws smoking in and around all public buildings. 
    The city must pay money each month, an amount based on population, to equip 
    local merchants with plastic water buckets. Patrons, customers or just 
    passers-by are then able to dump water on anyone caught smoking in a public 
    area.
    
    When this ordinance is in effect, the result is an increase in the overall 
    health of city Sims.
    
    The Community CPR Training Ordinance establishes a small fleet of mobile 
    medical training vans that travel throughout the city offering courses in 
    cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. Conducted by local chapters of the Junior 
    Llama League, these courses teach Sims how to respond in an emergency, 
    increasing survival rates for Sims stricken with cardiac arrest.
    
    This ordinance costs a small amount each month, based on population. The 
    program raises general health levels of the populace and gives all Sims peace 
    of mind.
    
    The Crossing Guard Ordinance puts highly-trained crossing guards at some of 
    the more challenging intersections of the city. This ordinance carries a 
    small monthly cost, based on population, to pay the salaries of these 
    fearless public servants.
    
    Crossing guards help prevent pedestrian accidents, increasing the overall 
    health of Sims in the city. However, traffic becomes more congested at these 
    intersections, causing a slight increase in citywide traffic.
    
    The Neighborhood Watch Ordinance encourages Sims to volunteer for duty on 
    crime-watch teams in their neighborhoods. Team members patrol the streets and 
    report any crimes or suspicious activities to a designated "block captain" 
    who in turn contacts a police rapid-response unit.
    
    Though this ordinance has a monthly cost based on Sim population, it is 
    highly effective in lowering citywide crime levels.
    
    The Mandatory Smoke Detector Ordinance requires that all buildings in the 
    city be equipped with smoke detectors. These battery-powered devices emit a 
    piercing sound whenever smoke is present. As irritating as the noise is, Sims 
    prefer this harmless annoyance to the alternative -- being unaware a fire has 
    broken out.
    
    This ordinance has a monthly cost, an amount based on the number of buildings 
    in the city. When it is enacted, citywide flammability is significantly 
    lowered.
    
    The Youth Curfew reduces crime by requiring that all youths be off the 
    streets by 10:00 PM every night. Violators are escorted to the nearest police 
    station where they must wait for their parents or guardians to take them 
    home.
    
    This ordinance has a monthly cost, based on city population. Funds are used 
    to pay for the additional police patrols needed.
    
    The Alternate Day Driving Ordinance asks Sims to limit the number of days 
    they drive each week. Sims with even numbered license plates are encouraged 
    to drive only on even days and those with odd numbered plates only on odd 
    days. Drivers with vanity plates are asked to stay off the roads completely.
    
    Global traffic in the city is reduced when this ordinance is in effect. The 
    monthly cost of this ordinance, based on population, is used to promote 
    voluntary compliance. Sims who violate the odd/even rule are frequently 
    ostracized by friends and co-workers, and can become angry enough to call for 
    its repeal.
    
    The Carpool Incentive helps encourage drivers to have passengers in their 
    cars. Drivers with three additional passengers are not required to stop for 
    toll plazas. All "No Left Turn" signs may be ignored by drivers with seven 
    additional passengers. A driver with nine or more passengers receives free 
    all-day parking in most city garages.
    
    This ordinance has a monthly cost based on population to pay for 
    administration of the program. The main benefit of this incentive is that it 
    reduces traffic in the city, although at times tempers can flare.
    
    The Parking Fines Ordinance gives the city a small but steady source of 
    income from parking violators. Dedicated city employees, who meet minimal 
    standards for penmanship and congeniality, patrol the streets and issue 
    tickets to Sims who stop their cars without regard to safety factors, posted 
    regulations, common courtesy, or civic pride.
    
    This ordinance tends to improve traffic flow in the city. However, most Sims 
    don't like the measure, and receiving a parking ticket fuels the fire of Sims 
    with latent anger issues.
    
    Sims will normally walk only a short distance from their homes or offices to 
    reach a road or mass transit stop. Enacting the Shuttle Service Ordinance 
    sets up free shuttles around the city, increasing the distance Sims can 
    travel to find other sources of transportation.
    
    The monthly cost of this ordinance is based on city population, and monies 
    are spent on repair and maintenance of a fleet of shuttles.
    
    The Subsidized Mass Transit Ordinance cuts subway, rail and bus fares by 50%, 
    providing an incentive for Sims to forego their cars for mass transit 
    alternatives. City funds provide the subsidy, and an amount based on 
    population is calculated and deducted from the treasury each month.
    
    This ordinance reduces traffic congestion and air pollution in the 
    city.‚   The Stairwell Lighting Ordinance requires all high-occupancy 
    buildings be equipped with small automatic devices called "minuterie" in 
    public stairwells. These devices detect movement and turn off lights when the 
    stairwell is not in use, saving energy.
    
    This ordinance has a small monthly cost based on number of buildings, but it 
    benefits the city by reducing overall power consumption.
    
    The Water Conservation Ordinance funds citywide programs to educate Sims 
    about methods to reduce residential water consumption. In addition, it sets 
    restrictive standards for business water usage, and a governing board issues 
    penalties for non-compliance.
    
    The monthly cost for maintaining this ordinance is based on city population. 
    When enacted, water consumption in the city drops by several percentage 
    points.
    
    The Power Conservation Ordinance funds programs to teach Sims about methods 
    for reducing power consumption at home, including turning off air 
    conditioners and cable TV sets. Residents are asked for voluntary compliance, 
    but businesses must adhere to mandatory power restrictions and are assessed 
    penalties for non-compliance.
    
    The monthly cost for maintaining this ordinance is based on city population. 
    When enacted, power consumption in the city drops by several percentage 
    points.
    
    The Mandatory Water Meter Ordinance requires that water meters be placed in 
    all buildings within the city limits. Building owners are assessed water 
    usage fees based on actual water consumption for that building. Up to half of 
    this assessment may be passed on to building tenants.
    
    A monthly fee, based on the number of buildings in the city, is deducted from 
    the treasury when this ordinance is in effect. Funds are used to pay for 
    meter installation and periodic meter readings. Its effects are to 
    significantly reduce citywide water consumption.
    
    Zones are areas of the city that a Mayor designates for specific uses. There 
    are six types of zones.
    
    RESIDENTIAL ZONES
    Residential zones are where Sims live, in structures ranging from single 
    family homes to exclusive high-rise condominiums.
    
    COMMERCIAL ZONES
    Commercial zones are where Sims shop, and where some of them work. Buildings 
    in these zones range from mom-and-pop shops to towering office complexes. The 
    demand for Commercial zones typically rises as a city gets larger.
    
    INDUSTRIAL ZONES
    Industrial zones define areas where manufacturing, agriculture, and high-tech 
    enterprises can do business. Younger cities normally attract polluting 
    industries, and can even attract farms in low density areas on the outskirts 
    of town. As the education level of Sims rises, cities start to attract 
    cleaner, high-tech industries.
    
    AIRPORT ZONES
    Airports help Commercial and Industrial districts to grow by bringing in 
    tourists and workers. Airports must be fairly large in order to develop, and 
    require power and transportation.
    
    SEAPORT ZONES
    Seaports help Industrial and Commercial sectors to grow by providing a means 
    to transport goods to the outside world. Seaports must be fairly large in 
    order to develop, and require power and transportation. They must be located 
    on a seacoast.
    
    LANDFILL ZONES
    Landfills are areas where city garbage is dumped, buried, and left to 
    decompose. When zoning landfill, remember to extend a road or rail from the 
    city to the landfill site so that the garbage can be transported there.

    Excerpt from the program "Location, Location, Location," broadcast on KSIM 
    98.1 -- SimNation Public Broadcasting Service3
    
    Zoning a city is both a science and an art. It is a science because demand 
    dictates when new zones are needed. It is an art because new zones may be 
    placed anywhere, allowing you to design any kind of city you like. 
    
    The RCI Demand Indicator is the tool that tracks the demand for Residential, 
    Commercial, and Industrial zones. When demand for a particular type of zone 
    is high, provide more of that zone. 
    
    Your decision on where to place a new zone, and what density to zone for, 
    will influence how your city develops. Zone density determines the maximum 
    number of buildings that can occupy a zone and how tall those buildings can 
    be. In high-density zones, buildings may start small (low density) but will 
    be replaced with larger buildings as land becomes more valuable. 
    
    When placing different zone types next to each other, consider the impact of 
    adjacent zones. For example, a low-density Residential area placed next to 
    large high-density Commercial towers might be a hard sell.
    
    Even though you designate zones, the Sims will ultimately decide what to 
    build there. Sims are fussy and fickle and often contradictory. They want to 
    live close to the place where they work, but not too close since businesses 
    create pollution and traffic. Finding a balance between Sims' wants and needs 
    is key to the art of zoning. 
    
    In summary, there is no one right way to lay out the zones of your city. 
    Zoning is a process of estimation, and trial and error. Your Sims will let 
    you know when something is amiss.
    
    -----
    Editorial from Zone Quarterly, Volume 23, Issue 3, Section 21, Upper Left
    
    Cities, particularly young cities, tend to exhibit similar growth trends 
    because demand for specific land types follows a predictable pattern.
    
    Early on, Industrial demand is high because outsiders want cheap land to 
    build new industries. Once industry is established, Residential demand grows 
    because Sims who work in industry need a place to live. Gradually, these Sims 
    need Commercial services so, over time, demand for the Commercial sector 
    grows.
    
    Residential demand is usually equal to the aggregate demand for Industrial 
    and Commercial, or simply stated, R = C + I. Younger cities demand more 
    Industrial than Commercial, while in mature cities the opposite is true. 
    Industrial demand comes from outside the city, while Commercial demand is 
    primarily internal -- as the city grows, it creates more and more internal 
    demand for Commercial.
    
    Each sector has growth "caps" where growth cannot continue without 
    intervention. Certain buildings such as airports, seaports, amusement parks, 
    or sports stadiums can "lift the cap" allowing additional growth in the 
    sector.  Listen to your Sims -- though they won't talk about caps, they'll 
    let you know when a sector stops growing and will suggest things to encourage 
    growth.

     Government Pamphlet 2352-4S (rev 1.2) Patterns and Trends of RCI Demand
    
    There are five primary reasons why some zones will not develop:
    
    1. LACK OF UTILITIES: Zones must have power before they will start to 
    develop, and need water to develop to full density.
    
    2. INADEQUATE TRANSPORTATION: An area will not develop unless Sims can drive 
    to that area, or get there using some form of mass transportation. Any areas 
    located more than a short walking distance from a transportation route is of 
    minimal interest to Sims.
    
    3. OVERSUPPLY OF ZONE TYPE: If there is not sufficient demand for a 
    particular type of zone, that zone will not develop.
    
    4. EXTREMELY HIGH OR LOW LAND VALUE: Industrial zones will not develop in 
    areas where the land value is too high, even if there is a demand for 
    Industrial zones. Residential and Commercial zones will not develop in areas 
    where land value is too low, even if there is a demand for such zones. Low 
    land value is caused by factors such as high crime, high pollution, or 
    proximity to certain structures like garbage incinerators, high-tension wires 
    or even buildings like jails.
    
    5. RADIATION: If a zone has been contaminated with radiation, it will not 
    develop.

    INDUSTRY FOR A BETTER TOMORROW
    These dedicated plant managers and factory owners work to bring peace and 
    justice to the industrial sector. The organization has no written by-laws, as 
    this would fly in the face of the group's contempt for needless regulations. 
    Taxes are another concern; members believe governments tend to balance the 
    budget on the backs of rich industrialists. Fred Honker, the chief executive 
    of the group, enjoys skeet-shooting and canasta.
    
    MALCOLM LANDGRAAB INDUSTRIES
    Malcolm Landgraab Industries, the sole employee of which is Malcolm 
    Landgraab, owns a controlling interest in many of SimNation's large-scale 
    real estate projects. By advancing the interests of all developers throughout 
    the city, Landgraab Industries earns a small commission at both ends of all 
    transactions. Mr. Landgraab divides his time between his condo in the city 
    and his hacienda on the resort island of San Cordelia.
    
    BUREAU OF OVERSIGHT
    The Bureau of Oversight is the federal liaison to city government, operating 
    under the jurisdiction of the SimNation Department of Obscure Intentions. 
    With bureaucrat Fred Smith at the helm, the Bureau of Oversight has enjoyed 
    higher funding and lower responsibility for twenty-two consecutive years. 
    Fred enjoys coin collecting and television game shows.
    
    CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
    The Chamber of Commerce works on behalf of the local business community. 
    President, pro tem, Prunella Penny is considered quite forceful in her 
    pursuit to make the city a business and commercial leader in the region.
    
    Trash happens. You simply can't stop Sims from generating it. There are ways 
    to reduce the amount of trash that Sims produce, but you can't eliminate it 
    completely. You must find a way to dispose of the trash in your city. Your 
    disposal alternatives are to dump it in landfills, burn it, or ship it out of 
    town.
    
    Don't put off this chore. If you don't provide a means for your city to 
    dispose of garbage, Sims will be forced to dump their trash right out their 
    window and you'll be able to see it pile up. It isn't pretty.
    
    When garbage levels get very high, health levels drop dramatically as will 
    the overall happiness of the Sims. It won't take long for everyone to find a 
    cleaner city in which to live.

    LANDFILL ZONES
    If you want to bury your city's garbage, you must zone an area for landfill.
    
    Choose a site carefully. Landfills don't make good neighbors -- they stink up 
    the air and cause surrounding land values to plummet -- so pick a spot far 
    from Residential and Commercial zones or Sims will complain.
    
    All landfills require road or railroad access so that garbage can be 
    transported there. Without a transportation route, the landfill will be 
    unusable.
    
    HOW LANDFILLS WORK
    Landfills slowly decompose garbage, but they are not black holes; overused 
    landfills will reach a point where they can't handle any more trash.
    
    Eventually, a landfill will decompose all of its accumulated garbage, at 
    which time it can be rezoned.
    
    If you want to get rid of a landfill and you think bulldozing it will solve 
    the problem, think again. You can't bulldoze over landfills; however, you can 
    decommission them by removing road or rail access.

    Government Pamphlet 102-C "Landfills Are Everybody's Business"
    
    Incinerators dispose of garbage by burning it. Unfortunately, they are nasty 
    metal monsters that spew out lots of air pollution and ash. Sims don't like 
    them, and they especially don't like them built in their backyards.
    
    Waste-to-energy incinerators are not any kinder to the environment. They have 
    a greater disposal capacity and actually create electricity by burning 
    garbage that can be used to supply power to your Sims.
    
    Incinerators should be placed near a road or railway so garbage trucks or 
    trains carrying garbage can get there. But because of all the pollution they 
    create, incinerators should not be placed near Residential or Commercial zone 
    or Sims will complain.
    
    Incinerators have a set lifespan. As they age, their capacity is 
    significantly reduced. There will come a time in the life of an incinerator 
    when its capacity drops so low, it is preferable to bulldoze and replace it.

    Recycling Centers can significantly reduce the amount of trash that Sims 
    produce.
    
    It's much cheaper to recycle trash than it is to dispose of it, so build a 
    Recycling Center as soon as they become available. These centers pay for 
    themselves quickly, and no city should be without one.
    
    Each Recycling Center can only deal with a limited amount of garbage, so 
    large cities should have them in multiple locations for maximum 
    effectiveness. Enact the Trash Presort Ordinance and you'll raise the 
    efficiency of all Recycling Centers.
    
    Recycling Centers have a fairly long lifespan, but as they age, their 
    capacity diminishes so periodically these buildings will need to be replaced.

    Mayors from neighboring cities may come to you with offers to buy or sell 
    garbage disposal services.
    
    Garbage deals are only available if you have built road, rail or seaport 
    connections to a neighboring city.
    
    EXPORTING GARBAGE
    An easy, but sometimes expensive, way to dispose of garbage is to pay a 
    neighbor to haul it all away.
    
    Each month, a contracted neighbor will take all your excess garbage (meaning 
    any garbage that your city's landfills and incinerators cannot handle); and 
    each month, funds are deducted from your treasury based on how much garbage 
    they took.
    
    If you don't generate any excess garbage, you still have to pay a minimum 
    fee. There is a large penalty for canceling the deal.
    
    IMPORTING GARBAGE
    If you have excess landfill space or incinerator capacity, you can make a 
    deal to dispose of a neighbor's trash.
    
    Each month, a set amount of trash will be added to your city's garbage and 
    each month, you'll receive a cash payment.
    
    If your garbage disposal services become overloaded and you want to cancel 
    the deal, you'll be charged a large penalty.

    Air pollution lowers land values and health levels in your city, making your 
    Sims quite distressed.
    
    While many things contribute to air pollution, the two biggest culprits are 
    heavy traffic and smokestack industries. If you can encourage mass transit 
    and clean industries, you are well on your way to solving your city's air 
    pollution problem.
    
    Adding trees and parks to your city helps to clean the air, as will enacting 
    any of the clean air ordinances.

    A Skunkworks Team Report, "Air Pollution"
    
    Water pollution can devastate a city. It threatens the health of residents, 
    makes the drinking water smelly and unpalatable, and clogs pumps and pipes.
    
    Water treatment plants can purify small amounts of dirty water, but it is far 
    too expensive and time-consuming to keep a city's entire water supply 
    treated.
    
    The best defense against water pollution is to stop it at the source. That 
    means preventing garbage from accumulating and attacking older, smokestack 
    industries. Enact clean water ordinances to encourage non-polluting, high-
    tech industries to replace heavy manufacturing firms.

    GREEN GAIANS
    Named after Gaia, the Greek goddess of the earth, the Green Gaians have been 
    instrumental in spearheading legislation to insure a clean environment for 
    all Sims. Spokesman Eugene Banks, an eco-biologist and former motorcycle 
    enthusiast, is SimNation's foremost authority on pollution and the lost art 
    of tie-dying.
    
    Simoleons are the currency of SimNation. Each city maintains a treasury of 
    simoleons to pay for city operations and growth.
    
    When the treasury is empty, you will not be able to zone or construct new 
    buildings. However, expenses for city departments, ordinances, neighbor 
    deals, and outstanding loans will continue to accrue, sending the treasury 
    into debt.
    
    A city can carry debt up to a point, but if a city gets so deep in debt there 
    is no hope for escape, Sims will start looking for a new Mayor. Your 
    Financial Advisor will warn you when things start looking grim.
    
    -----
    From the book, "Simoleons and the Treasury," by Albert Volkspan, Chairman of 
    the SimNation Federal Reserve Board
    
    Contrary to popular belief, there is no ideal setting for tax rates. 
    Successful mayors continually review and adjust tax levels to influence how 
    their city grows.
    
    Tax rates have a strong effect on the demand for certain land types. However, 
    conditions in the city such as availability of jobs and current land values 
    can counteract the effect that tax rates have on demand for land.
    
    LOWERING TAXES
    Lowering taxes in a particular sector will spur growth in that sector, other 
    things being equal. For example, cutting Residential taxes will attract Sims 
    to a city. There are risks to lowering taxes. The total number of taxpayers 
    may increase, but total revenues collected may fall. Also, a growing 
    population requires more city services, and that costs money.
    
    RAISING TAXES
    Raising taxes can increase the amount of tax revenues collected, allowing the 
    city to accumulate more funds to pay for city services and growth. There are 
    risks to raising taxes. High tax rates encourage Sims or businesses to move 
    away, leaving the city with fewer taxpayers. Also, Sims don't like tax hikes 
    and will complain.

    Abstract from "Economic Hokum and Conceptual Profundity: A Tax Primer for 
    Mayors" by Dr. Crendel Hildenbraut, Academy for Justified Redistribution
    
    Drafting a budget means deciding how much money from the city treasury should 
    be spent on each city department.
    
    Each department requires a minimal amount to pay for salaries and capital 
    equipment. If you give a department additional funds, the department becomes 
    more effective -- up to a point. When departments receive far more than they 
    need, departmental employees have a tendency to waste extra funds on 
    unnecessary "luxury" items such as cappuccino machines and visits from pet 
    psychics.
    
    So how much money should you allocate for each department? There is no one 
    answer to this question. Departmental needs change as the city grows.
    
    Your advisors will offer their opinions on how much money to allocate. Be 
    aware, though, that they are sometimes biased in favor of their own 
    departments and may ask for more than they really need. And your Financial 
    Advisor will normally argue against spending money for anything that is not 
    an absolute necessity.
    
    If you have seriously underfunded a department, you can be sure your Sims 
    will let you know. And unless you increase funding, the department may 
    retaliate with a strike.

    Class notes from "Budgeting for Mayors 101," Beezletown Community College, M-
    W-F, 9:00-10:00 A.M.
    
    The Budget window has two different views; one view shows city expenditures 
    and the other shows city income.
    
    EXPENDITURES VIEW
    This view shows the aggregate outflow your city pays for Ordinances, Neighbor 
    Deals, or outstanding loans. In addition, you'll see the current funding 
    level for each city department. You can adjust the funding by moving the 
    departmental slider to the right or left. The light blue marker on the budget 
    slider shows the amount of funding the department has requested, though you 
    may allocate any amount.
    
    INCOME VIEW
    This view shows the aggregate income your city receives from any money-
    generating Ordinances, Neighbor Deals, or Business Deals, or from Disaster 
    Relief. In addition, you'll see current tax rates for each of the three main 
    city sectors (Industrial, Commercial, and Residential), and may adjust them 
    if you like.
    
    The city's estimated annual profit or loss is displayed at the bottom of the 
    window. If the total is displayed in black, you're in good shape and should 
    make money at the end of the year. If the total is in red, you are projected 
    to lose money. That means you have more expenses than income for the year, 
    and will have to use cash reserves in the treasury just to make ends meet. If 
    you don't have enough cash, you'll start accumulating debt. When you're in 
    the red, it is best to start looking for ways to increase your income or 
    decrease your expenditures.

    Excerpt from the user's guide, "Budge-It," Financial Software for Mayors, 
    Version 1.1
    
    From time to time, Mayors from other cities may offer you deals to trade 
    power, water, or garbage disposal services. Each deal must be reviewed on its 
    own merit -- some deals are very advantageous, others potentially damaging. 
    The value of a deal depends on how you wish to operate your city.
    
    You cannot initiate a deal directly. But when you build a connection to a 
    neighboring city, it signals that city's Mayor that you are interested in 
    trading a certain commodity. Power deals require a power line connection; 
    water deals require a water pipe connection, and garbage deals require either 
    a road, rail, or seaport connection.
    
    When you accept a deal to sell to a neighbor, you'll receive monthly income 
    from the contracted neighbor, money which is automatically added to your 
    treasury. When you accept a deal to buy from a neighbor, a monthly charge 
    will be deducted from your treasury.
    
    Make sure to read and understand the terms of a deal before you accept it. 
    Once you accept a deal, you are obligated to fulfill the contract and will be 
    charged a penalty for canceling. If you destroy the connection between 
    cities, or run out of the commodity you're selling, the deal will be 
    automatically cancelled and you'll be charged a penalty fee.

    Inter-Urban Regulatory Guidelines for Neighbor Deals
    
    From time to time, you may be asked for permission to construct certain 
    buildings in your city. If you grant permission, your city will receive a 
    monthly fee for as long as the building stands.
    
    All Business Deals may sound attractive, but be aware that these buildings 
    always bring problems to the city such as high crime, or pollution. The 
    presence of these buildings in the city will cause Sims to complain, 
    especially if they are constructed near Residential neighborhoods.
    
    Think carefully before agreeing to a Business Deal. They are only worth the 
    trouble if you really need the cash.
    
    -----
    Inter-Urban Regulatory Guidelines for Business Deals
    
    When times get tough, or you are looking for rapid growth, you may want to 
    take out a loan.
    
    Loans provide a quick infusion of cash to the city treasury. This cash can be 
    used for any purpose -- it can pay for improvements such as new schools, or 
    it can pay off existing debt. In short, loans stimulate growth in cities that 
    are robust but not wealthy, or can save from bankruptcy cities that have 
    suffered loss from disasters or fiscal mismanagement.
    
    Loans are expensive, so don't take one without considering the consequences. 
    Interest costs are equal to approximately fifty percent of the loan; 
    therefore if a city takes a 10,000 simoleon loan, the city is obligated to 
    pay back nearly 15,000 simoleons.
    
    FACTS ABOUT LOANS:
    
    You may have up to ten loans outstanding at any time.
    
    A loan can be taken for any reason, and at any time (unless you have ten 
    loans outstanding).
    
    Loans are available in 5,000 simoleon increments.
    
    Each new loan is extended for ten years, and cannot be paid off early.
    
    The city must make annual payments on each loan for ten full years.
    
    Annual payment amounts are based on principal and interest.
     
    When the final payment is made in the tenth year, the loan is repaid and 
    comes off the books.
    
    Total payments made will equal approximately 150% of the original loan 
    amount.

    HOW TO CUT EXPENSES
    
    Stop Construction!
    Zoning and building use up your cash reserves faster than you'd think. When 
    cash reserves are low, build up your treasury before you build anything else.
    
    Cut Budgets!
    A quick way to cut expenses is to lower the budgets for some or all of the 
    city departments. Be careful though, as the departments will not run very 
    well without adequate funds and this may cause problems in your city. If you 
    cut the budget too far, you may end up with a strike on your hands.
    
    Repeal Ordinances!
    Most ordinances, when enacted, will cost the treasury a certain amount each 
    month, usually based on population. If the ordinance is repealed, the monthly 
    charge will stop. You can see all your current ordinances by going to the 
    Ordinance window. Click the box to remove the checkmark and repeal the 
    ordinance.
    
    Review Neighbor Deals!
    If you're spending money each month to buy a commodity from a neighbor, 
    decide if it's best for the contract to continue. If you think it is best to 
    cancel a contract, try to wait for an opportunity to cancel without paying 
    the hefty penalty.
    
    
    HOW TO RAISE INCOME
    
    Raise Taxes!
    It will lower demand for real estate, but without cash to build, you don't 
    need high demand. Watch that taxes are not so high that everyone leaves town, 
    or you'll be in real trouble.
    
    Enact Money-Generating Ordinances!
    A small percentage of ordinances bring monthly income to the treasury. This 
    money comes from groups in the city affected by the ordinance, and they will 
    not be pleased when forced to pay.
    
    Look for Moneymaking Neighbor Deals!
    If you have excess water, power, or garbage disposal capacity, check in the 
    Petitioner window for neighbors who will pay you to supply these commodities.
     
    Take Out a Loan!
    Even though you have to pay back the money, plus interest, loans are a quick 
    way to build up the treasury. If you use the money wisely, paying back the 
    loan shouldn't be too painful.

    FISCAL WATCHDOGS
    Proud to be called bean counters, the Fiscal Watchdogs keep a close eye on 
    how the public's money is spent. This loosely-organized group of concerned 
    accountants, bursars and cashiers volunteer their time and training to make 
    sure the city is not frittering away taxpayer money. Phyllis Denning, the 
    group's figurehead, claims never to have met a city expenditure she liked.
    
    How long do you expect to live? If you're an average Sim living in the 
    average city, you'll probably live fifty-nine years. At least that's what 
    insurance actuarial charts tell us. But there is new scientific proof that we 
    can increase our life expectancy to as high as ninety years.
      
    No, it's not a miracle drug. The secret to longevity is living a healthy 
    life. This is easier said than done, and despite the claims made by militant 
    vegans, broccoli alone is just not enough.
    
    So what can we Sims do to increase our own longevity? We demand that more 
    hospitals be built in the city, and ask for higher healthcare funding. We can 
    take public transit to reduce smog levels. And we can lobby for health-
    improving ordinances, including measures that ensure a healthy, pollution-
    free environment.

    Young Sim brains are like sponges, soaking up and learning everything they 
    are exposed to. But their uncanny ability to learn is fleeting. By the time 
    Sims reach adulthood at age twenty-two, they have learned all they will learn 
    in their lifetime.
    
    Sadly, adult Sims must work to merely retain the education level they 
    achieved in their youth. If they aren't continually exposed to educational 
    environments such as museums and libraries, their accumulated knowledge 
    starts to decay.

    D.
    
    Education levels determine a city's potential. High education levels in a 
    city mean less pollution, less crime, and happier Sims. Also, high-tech 
    industries are only attracted to cities that have a pool of educated workers.
     
    If you want to raise education levels in your city, concentrate on educating 
    the children. Build enough schools and colleges in your city so that every 
    young Sim has a place to learn. The quality of education that young Sims 
    receive in school will affect them their entire lives.
    
    Schools require funding to be effective. If education funding is very low for 
    an extended period of time, teachers and/or college professors will go on 
    strike.
    
    Do not neglect the educational needs of adult Sims. Build museums and 
    libraries to halt the natural decay of knowledge in adults -- it's a smart 
    move for your city.

    Aura means happiness and feelings of well-being -- the general ambiance of 
    the city. A city with high Aura is home to happy Sims, and happy Sims give 
    high approval ratings to the Mayor. Sometimes they even bring gifts!
    
    You can raise the Aura in your city by keeping education and health levels 
    high. Also, a growing economy and the presence of desirable buildings such as 
    parks and zoos can raise Aura. Aura is tied to land value; the higher the 
    aura, the greater the land value.
    
    Pollution, crime, traffic, high tax levels, and the presence of undesirable 
    buildings such as landfills and prisons can lower Aura.
    
    Do not neglect or pooh-pooh the Aura rating, as only cities with high Aura 
    will achieve full success and become eligible to receive gifts and special 
    opportunities.

    GRATEFUL CITIZENS COMMITTEE
    Grateful Citizens Committee members are, in the words of its founder, Beverly 
    Overly, "so dang happy to be Sims that we could just spit." The main function 
    of this group is to present awards to city officials for outstanding work. 
    When there are no awards to be presented, Beverly devotes her time and energy 
    to recruiting new committee members.
    
    "HAVE A NICE DAY" CLUB
    Originally a divorce support group called Dumped and Desperate, the "Have A 
    Nice Day" Club was renamed when several members remarried but didn't want to 
    break ties with the group. This is a social organization, not a political 
    group, though members speak out occasionally on city Aura issues. Suzanne 
    Pleasant, the committee's Executive Secretary, is an unflagging optimist who 
    searches for the good in any situation. She has not remarried.
    
    GRAY LLAMAS
    Eighty-eight year old Beatrice Meffelwhim started the Gray Llamas when her 
    husband, Jervis, was recovering from a broken hip. "The poor dear," Bea 
    remembers. "Seeing him hobble after busses as they pulled away from the curb 
    gave me the idea." She does not think of the Gray Llamas as a "senior 
    citizen's lobby," but as a group of older Sims who have ideas for everyone.
    
    BENEVOLENT AND PROACTIVE ORDER OF LLAMAS
    The BPOL is one of the oldest, most revered civic organizations in the city. 
    Its stated purpose is to "gently remind the Mayor from time to time of 
    certain obligations inherent to the office." The spokesperson is Fred 
    Clockson, Regional Coordinator. When not attending to organizational duties, 
    Fred ties flies at Miller's Trap'N Trout.
    
    SOCIETY FOR THE EXCESSIVELY CULTURED
    This elite organization works to enrich the city by promoting education and 
    the fine arts. Members also do charity work. Each holiday season, the group 
    delivers baskets of classical music CDs and domestic Pinot Noirs to needy 
    families in the city. Mrs. Harold Crebs assumed leadership of the group when 
    her husband, Harold Crebs, was killed in a golf cart accident.
    
    BELOW AVERAGE BOWLERS LEAGUE
    B.A.B.L. members have learned political activism can bring almost as much 
    excitement into their lives as bowling does. This group of third shift 
    millwrights have little reason to complain to the mayor, but do so at every 
    opportunity because they enjoy hearing their voices echo in the office 
    rotunda. "Besides, it gets us out of the house during the day," says current 
    Exalted Poobah and thirty pin handicapper Lenny Striker.
    
    MRS. FARSHEIM'S 10th GRADE CIVICS PROJECT
    Established by the school board, this experimental group of high school 
    sophomores gives the voice of youth open access to the Mayor's office. Civics 
    teacher Peg Farsheim hopes that showing young Sims the inner workings of city 
    government will help prepare them to be better citizens and lead more 
    productive lives. Rodney "Boss" Jones, the group's teen leader, has already 
    expressed an interest in becoming an alderman.
    
    Crime is a fact of life in any city, but it can and should be kept to a 
    minimum. High crime in a neighborhood lowers land values and makes law-
    abiding Sims very unhappy.
    
    You can deal with crime from several angles. First, build more police 
    stations in your city. Second, take steps to make your city a nice place to 
    live. (SimCriminals tend to avoid nice places.)
    
    POLICE STATIONS
    Police stations provide protection in a radius around each station called a 
    "precinct." The size of a precinct expands as you raise the police budget. 
    Criminals can roam free in any area that is not covered by a precinct, so try 
    to place police stations in strategic areas around your city.
    
    Funding not only affects a precinct's size, but also its effectiveness. 
    Police effectiveness is the likelihood that a criminal who commits a crime 
    within a precinct will get caught. Effectiveness is always highest in a small 
    radius around the police station, and starts to fade farther away from the 
    station. As police funding increases, police effectiveness throughout the 
    precinct rises. Police stations placed near one another may have precincts 
    that overlap, and effectiveness in these overlapping areas is additive.
    
    The Crime Data map shows the location of police stations and the 
    effectiveness within the precincts, as well as showing areas of high crime in 
    the city. Use this map to find the best spots to place new police stations. 
    You can use the Query tool to get details on how any individual station is 
    doing.

    Classnotes from the Police Academy, "Protecting Your Sims"
    
    Jails are where convicted criminals are put to pay their debt to society. If 
    you do not have enough jails in your city, the police will be forced to 
    release any new criminals they catch back onto the street. Keep enough jails 
    around or your police effectiveness will drop.
    
    Sims don't like living near jails, so build them away from Residential 
    neighborhoods.

    SimNational Report on Criminal Housings Alternatives
    
    The best way to lower crime is to build more police stations and raise the 
    police budget. But there are additional measures you can take.
    
    High land value goes hand in hand with low crime. The more you can do to make 
    your city a more desirable place to live, the fewer crimes will occur.
    
    Certain ordinances can reduce crime, though you should weigh the cost of the 
    ordinance against the cost of providing additional police protection. And be 
    aware that some ordinances, like some buildings, tend to increase crime 
    levels.

    Proceedings from the Police Commissioner Convention: Making Your City Safer
    
    When an emergency occurs, you may manually dispatch a police squadron to any 
    area in the city.
    
    The number of squadrons you can send at any one time is equal to the number 
    of police stations in the city plus one. You always have at least one 
    dispatch, even with no police stations.
    
    When an emergency arises in an area with sufficient police coverage, you 
    probably do not need to dispatch additional police. You still may want to 
    though, especially for larger disasters.
    
    Police can help to some extent no matter what type of disaster occurs. Though 
    they are most effective for dealing with riots, they can be helpful for 
    dealing with other disasters such as fires.
    
    To dispatch a police squadron, click on the Dispatch Police button within the 
    EMERGENCY button menu and then click on any location in the city. The 
    officers arrive immediately and go straight to work. A police dispatch pylon 
    will mark their location.

    Patrol Car"
    
    FIRE STATIONS and FUNDING
    Fires occur at random, though they are more likely in areas of high 
    flammability. If Fire Stations are placed strategically throughout the city, 
    you can rest easy knowing that if a blaze does break out, you have everything 
    set up to solve the problem without your intervention.
    
    Each fire station you place provides a radius of fire protection around it. 
    The size of the coverage area expands up to a limit as you raise the fire 
    budget. Though a fire is just as likely to break out in an area with fire 
    protection as in one without, fires in protected areas are less likely to do 
    any damage because firefighters respond immediately.
    
    Funding not only affects the size of the coverage area, it also influences 
    the effectiveness of firefighters within a covered area. Firefighter 
    effectiveness is the likelihood that a fire that breaks out in a protected 
    area will get put out before damage occurs. Effectiveness is always highest 
    in a small radius around the fire station, and starts to fade farther away 
    from the station. As fire funding increases, firefighter effectiveness rises.
    
    Fire stations placed near one another may have cover areas that overlap, and 
    effectiveness in these overlapping areas is additive.
    
    The Flammability Data map shows the location of fire stations and their 
    coverage areas. It also shows areas at high risk of fire. Use this map to 
    find the best spots in your city to place new fire stations.
    
    WHEN A FIRE IS OUT OF CONTROL
    When a fire occurs in an area not served by a fire station, you can dispatch 
    firefighters to the scene. You might even dispatch police, though they don't 
    help much. Or you can bulldoze a firebreak around the blaze to try and 
    contain it. What you cannot do is turn off "disasters" when a fire is already 
    in progress.

    Tips from Dotty the Dalmatian: Protecting Your City Against Fire
    
    Flammability is a measure of how easily something will burn. All buildings in 
    your city have an inherent flammability rating, which you can see if you 
    query the building. The higher the rating, the more likely that building will 
    be consumed by fire if one occurs.
    
    The most effective way to reduce the flammability of a building is to make 
    sure it is watered. To be watered, a building must be located within seven 
    tiles of a water pipe that is supplying water. Try to see that all buildings 
    in your city are hooked to the water system. The reduction in potential fire 
    damage is significant.
    
    Certain ordinances can reduce the global flammability level in your city.
    
    -----
    From Dotty the Dalmatian's Collection of Favorite Quotes: Don't Let the 
    Flammability Dog Wag the Fire Hose Tail
    
    When an emergency occurs, you may manually dispatch a unit of firefighters to 
    any area in the city. The number of units you can send at any one time is 
    equal to the number of fire stations in the city plus one. You always have at 
    least one dispatch, even with no fire stations.
    
    When an emergency arises in an area with sufficient fire coverage, you 
    probably do not need to dispatch additional firefighters. You still may want 
    to though, especially for larger disasters. Firefighters can help to some 
    extent no matter what type of disaster occurs. For example, they are very 
    effective dealing with fire, but not so great at quieting rioters.
    
    To dispatch a fire fighting unit, click on the  Dispatch Firefighters button 
    within the EMERGENCY button menu and then click on any location in the city. 
    The unit arrives immediately and firefighters go straight to work. A fire 
    dispatch pylon will mark their location.

    PREDICTING DISASTERS
    Disasters occur at random, but sometimes you may see hints that they're 
    coming. Keep your eye on your News Ticker.
    
    WHEN DISASTERS STRIKE
    Fires and riots are the only disasters where you can make a difference by 
    dispatching police and fire units. It doesn't matter how many police officers 
    you send to an earthquake or alien attack, it won't make any difference once 
    the disaster hits, though the Early Warning Siren helps if activated 
    beforehand.
    
    If, for some reason, you actually want a disaster to occur, select CREATE 
    DISASTER and pick your means of destruction. You may avoid disasters 
    altogether by unchecking "Disasters" in the Preferences window.
    
    -----
    Recovered page from Mrs. O'Leary's diary entitled, " I Could Kick Myself For 
    Not Seeing That Disaster Coming"
    
    When it comes to disasters, all cities are at risk. Though you can hope for 
    the best, it always best to prepare for the worst.
    
    If you can get your Sims off the streets and inside before a disaster 
    strikes, the damage from the disaster will be much less. Activate the Early 
    Warning Siren and they will heed your warning and take cover.
    
    You are the only one who can control this siren, and you should not abuse the 
    privilege. If you activate the siren when no emergency is imminent, Sims will 
    start to doubt you and may not respond when a the need is real so tease with 
    caution.

    SIMS ACTING FIRMLY IN EMERGENCIES (S.A.F.E.)
    S.A.F.E. works closely with local authorities to help neighborhoods fight 
    crime and prepare for emergency situations. "Neighborhoods are the collective 
    family," says Drill Sergeant Kurt Kahonis, "When the neighborhood works 
    together, the city works--period." Sims don't argue with him.
    
    ROADS vs. MASS TRANSIT
    A transportation system can be based on roads, mass transit, or some 
    combination of both.
    
    Most Sims prefer to drive their cars, so if roads are plentiful, more Sims 
    will want to live in your city, especially when the city is small. But if you 
    rely solely on roads, you'll find that as the population grows, traffic 
    problems become horrendous.
    
    Mass transit gets cars off the street and keeps the air cleaner. It's one of 
    the best things you can do for your city. In fact, it's difficult to build a 
    large city without using any mass transit at all.
    
    When planning your subway, rail and bus routes, be sure that they are 
    convenient, or your Sims won't use them. Certain ordinances provide 
    incentives for Sims to forego their cars in favor of mass transit.
    
    -----
    Free Government Handout, "The Importance of Infrastructure"
    
    ROADS and HIGHWAYS
    Roads are two-lane paved routes that Sims like to drive on. Highways are 
    elevated, high capacity roads. They allow Sims to travel more efficiently 
    over long stretches of terrain, so if you want to connect two very distant 
    zones, highways are a good choice.
    
    INTERSECTIONS
    Intersections allow your Sims to drive off of one road and onto another. They 
    are usually trouble-free, though if traffic is heavy, intersections can 
    become bottlenecked with Sims trying to merge.
    
    When you build a road that crosses an existing road, city engineers will 
    automatically create an intersection you for.
    
    ON-RAMPS
    Highways may be built over roads, but if you want your Sims to be able to get 
    from one to the other, the intersection requires an on-ramp. On-Ramps allow 
    your Sims to get on and off Highways. To build an on-ramp, select the On-Ramp 
    tool and click on the tile at the corner of the intersection of a road and 
    highway, or of two highways. The city engineers will construct the on-ramp.

    Endnotes from the poem, "The Road More Traveled" written by Moe Biehl
    
    You can build roads, highways and rails across water.
    
    When you build over water, your city engineers will automatically be notified 
    to build a bridge for you. They will build causeways over short spans of 
    water and suspension bridges over large spans.
    
    When building, don't be disheartened by the red drop shadow that appears as 
    you move the mouse over water -- just keep dragging until you reach dry land 
    again. When you release the mouse button on dry land, the city engineers will 
    notify you of the cost of the proposed span. If you accept, the bridge will 
    be built.

    Why Engineers Love Toothpicks and Duct Tape: Part 1 - Bridges
    
    When you're building a road, highway, or rail over mountainous terrain, your 
    omnipresent team of city engineers may insist you bore a tunnel if the 
    incline is too steep.
    
    This happens automatically if you try to build a route across a steep 
    incline. Your team of city engineers will inform you of their ability to 
    construct a tunnel and the cost. If you accept, they will bore the tunnel for 
    you.

    MASS TRANSIENTS
    This group is committed to the expansion, enhancement and use of public 
    transit throughout the city. Organized by Kara Barkley, estranged daughter of 
    car-mogul Ben Barkley, the group's expressed purpose is to remove automobiles 
    from all city streets. While they accept the futility of this position, they 
    nevertheless believe any victories, no matter how minor, are steps in that 
    direction.
    
    Due to major advances in power transmission, power plants can transmit power 
    effortlessly across zones. Electric energy from a power plant radiates out 
    two tiles in all directions. Every zoned tile or building that lies within 
    that two-tile radius will be powered. But that's just the beginning.
    
    Every powered tile or building acts like a power relay station, transmitting 
    power for an additional four tiles. Powered tiles use what they need, and 
    deliver any remaining power to surrounding zoned tiles and buildings. As long 
    as power flows to a zoned tile or building, it will just keep going.
    
    Thoughtful zoning makes it feasible to create a chain of power, enabling you 
    to power an entire city without ever placing power lines!
    
    But there may be cases where laying power lines is a better option. For 
    instance, if you place a power plant in an unzoned area on the far outskirts 
    of the city, there may not be enough zoned tiles to relay the power where 
    it's needed. In this case power lines are needed to transmit the power to the 
    zones. Power lines allow you to place heavy polluting, undesirable power 
    plants far from your developing zones.
    
    -----
    Utilities Billing Insert # 24, "Recent Advances in Power Delivery"
    
    High-tension power lines carry power any distance over zones or unzoned 
    tiles. Power lines do not need to originate at a power plant -- they can be 
    built anywhere. As long as part of the power line touches a powered tile, the 
    entire power line will be powered. Power is conducted through the lines to 
    the end point, and also radiates out two tiles along the path of the power 
    line.
    
    Power lines can cross most types of terrain, though if the terrain is too 
    mountainous, you'll need to find another path. You can even build power lines 
    over water if you are willing to pay your city engineers to construct 
    platforms to stabilize the power lines.
    
    Sims do not like living near high-tension power lines, and Residential land 
    values near them will never reach their peak.
    
    -----
    Utilities Billing Insert #59, "The Angst Over High-Tension Power Lines"
    
    SimCity 3000 offers nine types of power plants, though not all of them are 
    available all the time. (They must be invented first!)
    
    Each power plant varies in cost, useful lifespan, amount of power it can 
    generate, and amount of pollution it produces. You need to decide which is 
    best for your city's needs. If you can afford it, it's worth spending the 
    extra money for lower-polluting power plants, but there may be times when you 
    have no choice but to cover your Sims in black soot.
    
    Power plants lose capacity as they age and will explode when they reach the 
    end of their useful life. It is a good idea to bulldoze and replace older 
    power plants with new plants before they explode to prevent any unexpected 
    power losses. It is especially important to bulldoze nuclear plants before 
    they reach the end of their life. If a nuclear plant explodes, it releases 
    dangerous radiation that will devastate the surrounding area.
    -----
    "Power Can Neither Be Created Nor Destroyed -- The Debunking of a Theory," 
    unpublished paper by Gus Oddman
    
    A power loss, called a blackout, occurs when a building or zone that normally 
    receives power is not receiving enough power to operate. Most blackouts occur 
    when a power station can't generate enough power to meet the demands of the 
    area it serves. Power will radiate as far as possible from the power station 
    and then will just stop, leaving structures farthest from the plant without 
    power.
    
    Another cause for blackouts is when a "break" in the grid occurs. This can 
    mean that a power line was destroyed, or that the established path where 
    power radiated was disrupted through unzoning of powered tiles, or when a 
    powered building on an unzoned tile was destroyed.
    
    A lighting bolt symbol will flash when a structure is not receiving power. 
    For a complete view of the powered and unpowered areas of your city, check

    Sims need water. Zones that are not watered will never reach full development 
    and are at a high risk for fire disasters. If water to a developed zone is 
    cut off for too long, Sims will pack up and leave.
    
    It's not always easy to tell if a tile is watered just by looking at your 
    city. Slow (or no) development is an indication, but the only sure-fire 
    method is to query the tile, or switch to the underground view where watered 
    tiles are easily distinguishable by their bright blue color.

    Excerpt from "The Universal Solvent: What Every Mayor Should Know About 
    Water"
    
    Though you may have natural water sources like lakes and rivers in your city, 
    you must build pumps to pump the water out, and build a network of pipes to 
    carry this water to your Sims.
    
    Water from the pumps will flow through the pipe network toward the city until 
    the water supply is exhausted. You may have tiles that are piped for water, 
    but unless your pumps can generate enough water to fill all the pipes, some 
    areas won't get the water they need. Build more pumps and connect them to the 
    pipe network to increase the flow.
    
    -----
    Utilities Billing Insert # 43, "How Does Water Get To My Tap?"
    
    There are three kinds of water sources in your city and, not surprisingly, 
    three kinds of pumps. All pumps have a limited lifespan. As they age, their 
    capacity to pump water decreases. It makes sense to bulldoze and replace 
    older pumps with new pumps.
    
    PUMPING STATIONS
    Regular pumping stations pump water from fresh water lakes and rivers. Like 
    all pumps, they require electricity to operate. Pumping stations, though, can 
    pull up more water than any other kind of pump. They must be built very near 
    a fresh water source, or they won't work. Pay attention to water pollution 
    levels, as high pollution really slows down the efficiency of pumping 
    stations.
    
    WATER TOWER
    Water towers pump water from hidden underground springs. These springs exist 
    everywhere, so water towers can be built anywhere. The problem with water 
    towers is that they don't pump very much water. Water pollution can slow them 
    down even further.
    
    DESALINIZATION PLANT
    Desalinization plants pump water from the sea and convert the salt water into 
    fresh water. They do their job amazingly well, but they do come with some 
    potential problems. These pumps must be built on a seacoast to be of any use, 
    they are less efficient than a pumping station, and they lose efficiency when 
    water pollution is present.
    
    -----
    Article from Pump Weekly, "Three Common Types of Pumps"
    
    Water radiates out along pipe routes, watering all areas within seven tiles 
    of a pipe that carries water. Unlike power transmission, watered tiles do not 
    act as relay stations. For a tile to be watered, it must be above or near a 
    pipe, not just near another watered zone.
    
    To get water to the Sims, you must lay water pipes from a water pump to the 
    city and construct a pipe network under all zones.
    
    When you chose the pipes from the Main Toolbar, the city view will 
    automatically change to an underground view. Roads, zoned areas and developed 
    areas are visible in this view so you can orient yourself. You can also see 
    the underground components of water facilities so you can make the 
    connections with ease.

    Article from Pipes 'n' Wires, "Pipes: A Network Connection That Needs No 
    Computer"
    
    Pollution can really gum up the waterworks. Pumps lose efficiency when 
    they're pumping polluted water. You can add more pumps to increase the supply 
    in the short term, but don't forget to clean up the pollution.
     
    WATER TREATMENT PLANTS
    One way to help clean up the water supply is to build water treatment plants. 
    They must be connected by pipes to the water grid in order to be effective.
    
    ORDINANCES
    If water pollution in your city is severe, or you don't want it to become 
    severe, consider enacting ordinances to reduce pollution. They cost money, 
    but they make a real difference.

    Water
    
    If you don't want to clutter up your city with unsightly and expensive 
    facilities, you can purchase power or water from a neighbor. You must have 
    the proper utilities connection in place before a deal can be made.
    
    Each month, a contracted neighbor will look at your city's power or water 
    needs at the connection point, and will supply enough to cover the deficit.
    
    The connection point is critical. Any area of the city that you want to 
    supply with purchased power or water must be able to be served from the 
    connection point. If no pipe network or power transmission path exists 
    between the connection and an area that need utilities, the neighbor will not 
    recognize the deficit and will not sell you enough power or water to cover 
    that deficit.
    
    Each month, funds are deducted from your treasury based on how much power or 
    water you needed. If you didn't need any during the month, you still have to 
    pay a minimum fee. You should also take into account that there is a large 
    penalty for canceling the deal.

    Inter-Urban Council Proceedings on Buying Power and Water
    
    If you are generating excess power or water and you have the appropriate 
    utilities connection in place, you may be approached by a neighbor looking to 
    purchase these resources.
    
    If you make a deal to sell power or water, each month you are responsible to 
    supply the contracted amount to be delivered through the connection point.
    
    The connection point is critical. If you're generating excess power or water 
    in areas that cannot serve the connection point, you may not be able to 
    fulfill the contract. Make sure there is a clear transmission path (pipes for 
    water, zones or wires for power) from the source of your excess utilities to 
    the connection point.
    
    If conditions change and you can no longer provide the power you promised, 
    the deal is canceled and you'll be charged a large penalty.

    The gridiron of crisscross streets goes back to the colony cities founded by 
    the Mesopotamian and Assyrian empires. Colonizers have favored it ever since, 
    from the Greeks and Romans to the Spanish Empire to the settling of the 
    American hinterland -- wherever safety, speed, low cost and control were 
    important concerns. Advantages include the rapidity with which they can be 
    developed, their extensibility, their efficient use of building plots, the 
    open access they provide to any spot within them, and their facilitation of 
    the orderly distribution and control of land.
    
    Too often, however, grids were hastily and heedlessly imposed, with no 
    consideration for topography or the monotony of one endlessly repeated form. 
    Traveling in a diagonal direction becomes needlessly time-consuming in a 
    broadly imposed grid, and traffic bottles up at the center.  Modifying the 
    pattern helps address these problems: varying the size of blocks, building 
    hierarchical patterns of major arteries and side streets, crossing the grid 
    with diagonals, encircling sections with ring roads, or breaking up the 
    pattern with squares and visual landmarks.
    
    This Starter Town, based on a plat used by the Illinois Central Railroad to 
    plan towns along its lines in the nineteenth century, illustrates the power 
    of a simple design. Thirty-three different towns were created using this one 
    plat, including Quincy, Rockford and Kenkakee. To this day many of them use 
    the same street names (tree names one way, numbers the other) suggested in 
    the original plat.
    
    Ancient cities in many cultures began as centers for religious rituals, and 
    were laid out in ways that attempted to reassure people of their place in an 
    ordered cosmos.  In ancient texts called Silpasutras Indian city planners 
    detailed how cities should be laid out to keep the spirit of the dwelling 
    place within, the forces of disorder out, and help coordinate the strivings 
    of humankind with the larger patterns of the gods.
    
    Designed in the form of a lotus or mandala, these cities protect the most 
    powerful building, a temple or palace, inside a series of enclosing boxes 
    made of streets laid out in concentric squares. Different occupational groups 
    are assigned to different boxes, with the lowest castes and occupations 
    inhabiting the boxes furthest from the center. The most important streets are 
    the encircling ones, not the narrow capillaries passing between them. Traffic 
    moves in a clockwise direction as it circles from the outside in. Ceremonial 
    processions trace this pattern on holy days, but the basic street layout 
    encourages a sense of ritual movement even in the daily business of city 
    life.
    
    The street layout modeled in this starter town is loosely based on that of 
    Madurai, a city in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu, one of the clearest 
    surviving examples of the mandala form. Originally built long ago in the 
    shape of a lotus by the Pandyan King Kulsasekhara, the ancient pattern was 
    reworked into its present form in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
    
    From 1500 b.c.e. until the present century, most major Chinese cities were 
    laid out in perfect squares, oriented in a ritually determined manner. Each 
    side had three gates, and each gate was named for a month of the year. 
    Symmetry reigned within: separated along a central axis, the left side of the 
    city precisely mirrored the right. The city was divided into sections, 
    progressively subdivided into ever-smaller sections, like Chinese boxes one 
    within the other. This magic pattern was intended to provide a secure link to 
    the forces of order in the cosmos, resonate with sacred harmony, and keep the 
    forces of chaos at bay. This highly influential Chinese model underlies the 
    original layout of most major cities not only in China but in Japan, Korea, 
    and much of Southeast Asia.
    
    This Starter Town is based on Chang'an (now Xi'an) circa 700 c.e., the 
    capital of China under the T'ang dynasty. The emperor's palace dominated the 
    north, looking over a district assigned to lords and priests toward a city 
    symmetrically divided into west and east areas, divided by Red Bird Street, 
    including a twin pair of central markets.
    
    Cities laid out in straight lines enjoy periodic fashion among theorists of 
    city form, though few actually get built. The idea is to construct a city of 
    small, interchangeable parts linked together into a giant functional machine. 
    String similar units in parallel lines along a continuous major 
    transportation route and you have an orderly, extensible system that can be 
    used to link older cities or push indefinitely out on its own.
    
    Though very small towns along a road often naturally fall into a straight 
    line pattern, and commercial strips can recreate some of its features, large-
    scale linear plans tend to quickly disintegrate unless the topography 
    severely constrains the city's growth. Uneven development of different 
    industries and the natural demand for centralized services tend to pull 
    development of a linear city out into the supposedly open land, or create 
    centralized downtown areas at the tips.
    
    This Starter Town is based on a plan drawn up in 1930 by the Soviet planner 
    N. A. Miliutin. Designed for a city specializing in auto assembly, it 
    resembles a production line writ large. River, residential areas, roads, 
    rail, factories -- every element runs parallel, as in a giant industrial 
    plant. Every building is the equal to all the others of its type, with no 
    favored downtowns or isolated suburbs. What better way to house and employ 
    the new socialist man and woman and build the ideal classless future?
    
    Will it work?  In this long valley, with steep mountains to either side, this 
    pattern may make sense. But Sims, who have the freedom to vote with their 
    feet, may not be the ideal citizens for a socialist utopia. Mayors of the 
    world, unite; you have nothing to lose but your Sims!
    
    In the Baroque plan, important buildings and monuments are set apart in 
    strategically placed spots on prominent terrain, then linked with other such 
    buildings by major arterial roads to heighten their visual impact. The 
    seminal expression of Baroque planning was the grounds of Louis XIV's palace 
    at Versailles. Baroque thinking also underlay the drastic redesign of Rome 
    and Paris in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Pierre l'Enfant's 
    Baroque design for Washington D.C. set grand triangulating avenues connecting 
    the Capitol, the White House, and the sites of what eventually became the 
    great presidential monuments.
    
    The rest of the city may be organized in various ways: in a relatively 
    straightforward grid system, as in Washington, or along complex organic 
    medieval patterns as in Paris and Rome. The intersection of the dominant 
    arterial connections with these other patterns can produce major traffic 
    problems in modern automobile-dominated cities, though the aesthetic appeal 
    and symbolic strength of the axial network, making good use as it does of 
    important features of the landscape, make successful baroque plans popular 
    favorites with governments and citizens alike.
    
    This Starter Town with baroque influence is based on early Annapolis, laid 
    out in 1694 by the colonial Governor of Maryland, Francis Nicholson.  It was 
    the first Baroque-inspired town in America, and the only one until the 
    founding of Washington D.C. a full century later. It features radial and 
    diagonal streets, two large circles set on hills for civic buildings, a 
    market square, a residential square, and areas reserved on the edge of town 
    for industrial activities, including a large area that might become a farm.
    
    Though many new cities in colonial America followed standard, unimaginative 
    grid designs, some took more interesting approaches. A favorite element to 
    mix into a grid was the public square. New Haven, Connecticut (1638) was 
    conceived like a giant tic-tac-toe board, with nine perfect squares 825 feet 
    on each side. The central square housed public buildings and a town green. 
    Fifty years later William Penn laid out a much larger vision for 
    Philadelphia, with a gigantic square divided in four sections, each of which 
    centered on a public square.
    
    The Checkerboard Squares Starter Town is modeled on Savannah, Georgia, begun 
    in 1733 by General James Oglethorpe. He divided his new city into wards 
    (neighborhoods), each of which centers on a public square.  The sides of some 
    squares he reserved for commercial and civic uses (church, schools, stores), 
    while the sides of others became residential. One larger square he planned as 
    the location of particularly important buildings. This was designed to be an 
    extensible system, new wards being added as needed.
    
    At the turn of the last century, visionary designers began reacting to 
    changes in city growth brought on by such inventions as the automobile, the 
    telephone, and electricity.  The Garden City and New Town movements were 
    early attempts to channel the urban sprawl beginning to radiate out in every 
    buildable direction from older city centers. Star (or "asterisk") designs 
    deriving from these influential experiments usually include major 
    transportation arteries that radiate outward from the dense center, besides 
    which less dense development is supposed to cluster; green wedges of parkland 
    that separate the fingers of development and provide access for bicycles and 
    pedestrians; and periodic concentric rings linking the fingers together, more 
    of which may be added as the city expands.
    
    This Starter Town is a very scaled down version of the general plan of 
    Moscow, an ancient city significantly redeveloped in the fifties and sixties 
    along lines suggested in a 1949 book by Hans Blumenfeld, Theory of City Form, 
    Past and Present. Things to watch for if you adopt this plan, Mayor, include 
    congestion at the center and the tendency for regional centers to grow at 
    major crossings.
    
    Twentieth century residential planning has seen a wide range of fashions, 
    styles, goals, and standards. Attempting to minimize the problems posed to 
    pedestrians by speeding automobiles, designers created a succession of 
    solutions, each of which introduced new problems of their own. By isolating 
    homes in clusters of cul-de-sacs, for example, city designers succeeded in 
    minimizing the dangers of passing automobiles, but at the cost of isolating 
    people in pockets from which they could only escape by driving more 
    automobiles.
    
    A new city pattern becomes the fashion every decade or so, replicated so 
    often that you can fly over an unfamiliar American suburb and make a good 
    guess as to when a section was built just by observing the layout of its 
    streets. On opposite sides of this Starter Town are three such patterns: 
    'fragmented parallel,' popular in the 1950's, 'loops and lollipops,' a 
    favorite of the 1970's, and 'lollipops on a stick,' which came to dominate 
    the 1980's.  In the middle is an area reserved for a high-density commercial 
    downtown. If the Mayor builds well it should eventually sprout skyscrapers.
    
    For decades the influential architect Frank Lloyd Wright worked on an 
    elaborate city plan he called Broadacre City. True to its name, Broadacre 
    City featured a broadly decentralized with a decidedly rural character, 
    mixing farms in with homes and other forms of industry. A believer in the 
    liberating mobility provided by the automobile, Wright banished the railroad 
    and emphasized "spacious landscaped highways" allowing each "citizen of the 
    future" to have "all forms of production, distribution, self-improvement, 
    enjoyment; easily and speedily available by means of his car or plane." 
    Looking back to the Jeffersonian ideal of a decentralized agrarian America, 
    so far in spirit from the "barbaric" centralized cites of the twentieth 
    century, he imagined that "the technology of Edison and Ford could resurrect 
    Jefferson."
    
    Broadacre City attempts to merge elements of city, suburb and country into a 
    single continuous pattern. No house is to be more than two blocks from open 
    green space. Wright insisted that his vision was a city, despite the many 
    critics who called it a "homogenous non-city" and "a subdivision plat for a 
    middle-class suburb in Utopia." Broadacre City was never built, though in his 
    plans Wright foresaw many developments that came to later prominence, 
    including shopping malls, motels, and industrial research parks. Critics 
    might claim that the disorganized, wasteful sprawl characteristic of much 
    recent development is an ironic fulfillment of his utopian dream.
    
    Can you keep such a decentralized scheme going, and make it a place Sims will 
    want to live and work?
    
    Neighborhoods built around transit stops, in the days when streetcars and 
    trolleys were the dominant form of urban transportation, continue to be 
    counted among the most pleasant places to live and shop. Developed before the 
    automobile opened the floodgates to suburban sprawl, their virtues include 
    compactness, diversity of housing appealing to residents of different ages, 
    mixed-use zoning, and the availability of shopping, services and sometimes 
    jobs within walking distance of home. Many cities which abandoned their 
    trolleys decades ago are now reintroducing light rail systems in order to 
    combat both traffic congestion and the sense of isolation that can develop in 
    areas overly dependent on automobile transportation.
    
    This Starter Town uses a topography loosely based on Boston, centering on a 
    rail line that traces the route of a streetcar line which, in 1897, went 
    underground to become the first subway in America. Instead of historical 
    Boston, however, we have versions of what planners call "transit-oriented 
    developments" or "pedestrian pockets." These are compact mixtures of 
    residential, commercial and industrial zones organized around mass-transit 
    stops (here train and subway stations) and 'village greens' visible from afar 
    along diagonal connector streets. They can either take the form of 
    Neighborhood developments, with a core area for shops near the transit stop 
    but otherwise comprising residential areas of different densities, or Urban 
    developments, in which the mix shifts toward places of employment.  One node 
    of each type has been zoned, with a third laid out for whatever uses the 
    Mayor decides are most appropriate.

    The new microwave power plants I've seen are very impressive. Using solar 
    panels up in outer space where the solar rays are a lot stronger, power is 
    zapped down to stations on the ground by microwave. Incredible.
    
    Run down the checklist: they're clean, efficient, well worth the cost. I 
    recommend any new power plants be microwave stations.
    
    
    They've been working on nuclear fusion for a long time, but finally it's 
    here. Fusion power has none of the dangers of nuclear fission, since it works 
    with water and has nothing to do with radioactive isotopes.
    
    Sure it's expensive to build, but once a fusion plant is up and running, it's 
    cheap to maintain, doesn't pollute, and is perfectly safe. Next time 
    %YOURCITY% needs a new power plant, I recommend you build a fusion plant.
    
    
    The city treasury is in a precarious state. You must find an immediate source 
    of cash. 
    
    One way to raise funds is to import trash from a neighbor; they would pay us 
    to process their garbage. We could trade our excess garbage-processing 
    capacity for some much-needed cash.
    
    I suggest you build a road or rail connection to one of our neighbors. With a 
    route open between us, I expect we'll be contacted to set up a deal.
    
    We may have to take out a loan to pay for the connection costs, but it may be 
    well worth it in the long run.
    
    
    I am sorry to report that the city's funds are nearly depleted. We need to 
    raise money soon. 
    
    I suggest we sell our excess garbage-processing capacity. A trash importing 
    deal could infuse some much-needed cash into our coffers. 
    
    But first we need to establish a way to transport garbage between cities. I 
    recommend you build a seaport so that neighbors can ship us their garbage on 
    barges. With a seaport in place, I expect someone will approach us with a 
    proposal.
    
    Seaports are costly, but even if we have to take out a loan to set up a 
    seaport zone, it may be worth it in the long run.
    
    
    We're generating a lot of excess power because we've got more power plants 
    than we really need. In fact, we have so much extra power that I suggest we 
    sell some of it and earn some money for the city. 
    
    I've heard that our neighbors need power and may be willing to buy it from 
    us. All you have to do is hook up a power line from one of our power plants 
    to the border, and I'll bet someone will contact us about making a deal.
    
    
    We aren't producing enough power to meet the city's needs. You got to do 
    something to increase power soon, or Sims will start leaving. 
    
    If you don't want to build more power plants, we could buy power from a 
    neighbor. All we have to do is connect a power line to one of our neighbors. 
    When they know we're serious, they'll send somebody over to sniff out a deal.
    
    You know, I've heard that some cities buy all their power. It's expensive, 
    but if we paid someone else to generate power, we'd never have to build 
    another power plant. Sure would mean less work for me.
    
    
    I hear our neighbors are frantic about their water problems. I'll bet if we 
    built water pipes up to their border, we'd get an offer to buy any drop we 
    had to spare. We do have plenty to spare, at least for now. 
    
    This isn't much extra work for me, and our treasury could always use a boost.
    
    
    My field studies show we don't have enough water to meet projected needs, but 
    our neighbors are practically floating in it.
    
    If we build a water main to one of our mutual borders, we'll probably be 
    offered a deal to buy water, though it might be expensive.
    
    This means extra work for me, but the city needs water.
    
    
    I'm doing my best to keep our power plants from blowing, but they aren't 
    meant to operate at such a high capacity for so long, especially with some of 
    them nearing the end of their useful life. My work crews are exhausted from 
    trying to hold them together.
    
    It won't be long before one of the them fails, and when it goes, it won't be 
    a pretty sight. You should build more power plants while there is still time.
    
    
    We are asking too much of our power plants, especially the older ones. 
    Running at such a high capacity as they are, some of them have become so 
    dangerous that technicians are refusing to do their jobs. I can't in good 
    conscience force them back into the plants until we can slow down power 
    generation. 
    
    I urge you to build more power plants immediately. The situation is 
    dangerous.
    
    
    It was bound to happen. A power plant exploded. We let one of our plants run 
    at an abnormally high capacity for too long, and that one just couldn't take 
    the strain. Unless we want another one to blow, we're going to have to pay 
    more attention to the basics of running a city. 
    
    Build more power plants immediately.
    
    
    ayor %YOURNAME%, the Sims are very upset because they aren't getting the 
    power they need. Without power for homes and businesses, the city can't grow. 
    It won't be long before Sims start leaving the city. 
    
    My recommendation: Build another power plant immediately. It's just the spark 
    this city needs.
    
    
    Our power situation is critical. We can't keep up with demand. Neighborhoods 
    are reporting frequent brownouts and power failures. Commerce and general 
    well-being are already suffering.
    
    Everything we've got is running at maximum capacity and if we're not careful, 
    we could end up with an explosion on our hands. Power plants don't last 
    forever, you know. Older plants lose capacity and must be replaced. 
    
    I strongly suggest you build another power plant right away. Remember that 
    Sims don't like to live too close to them, so choose a spot away from 
    Residential areas.
    
    
    Blackouts are occurring because %YOURCITY% has outgrown its ability to 
    generate power. Lights are flickering in entire neighborhoods. 
    
    Since our plants are aging and we're running very close to maximum capacity 
    now, we need another source of power soon. It might be possible to buy power 
    from a neighbor, but that can become expensive. Building a new power plant 
    might be easier.
    
    Whatever you decide, act quickly. Sims don't like it when their power is 
    interrupted.
    
    
    Our power plants are adequate to serve our current needs. Our present 
    capacity leaves enough room for growth without being inefficient.
    
    For the time being, no new power plants are needed. I'll continue to monitor 
    the situation, of course, and inform you of any changes.
    
    
    We're producing more power than we can use. Seems wasteful to me.
    
    We could tear down any power plants we aren't using, but we'll probably need 
    them later on when the city grows. Might be a good time to look for a 
    neighbor to buy our excess power. 
    
    Either way is fine with me. I just don't like to see good power going to 
    waste.
    
    
    We're generating enough power, but it's not getting to the Sims. All over 
    town Sims want to build but can't, because no power gets to them. You'd 
    better check the power connections again. 
    
    Make sure any distant power plants are connected to the city zones with power 
    lines. For those power plants closer in that don't need power lines, take 
    note of any unzoned tiles. Power radiates freely across zoned areas, but can 
    only reach across four unzoned tiles before the connection breaks.
    
    
    We still have a few holes here and there in the power grid. Some sections of 
    the city are continually without power.
    
    I suggest you inspect the power grid all over the city. Make sure all zoned 
    areas are connected to a power line or come close to other powered zones.
    
    
    I am happy to report that all areas of the city are sufficiently covered by 
    the power grid. Excellent planning on your part, Mayor %YOURNAME%.
    
    I recommend you check the grid every now and then, just to make sure it stays 
    intact. Of course I'll still make my usual inspections, and will inform you 
    of problems as they arise.
    
    
    Without a water system, this city will never amount to much. Zones without 
    water will only develop low density buildings even if they are zoned for 
    higher densities.   
    
    I suggest you build a water pumping station near a fresh water source. Then 
    run pipes to carry water from the pump to your zones. 
    
    Water towers are another option. They don't pump nearly as much water, but 
    they don't have to be near a lake or river -- you can build them anywhere.
    
    Whatever you choose, be aware that these pumps don't last forever. They must 
    be replaced on a regular basis.
    
    
    We're in a bit of trouble, Mayor. We don't have enough water to meet the 
    growing demands of the citizenry. 
    
    I recommend that you build more pumps or water towers right away. Or you 
    could look for a neighbor to sell us the water we need, though I prefer 
    having control of our own supply.
    
    Don't let the water shortage get any worse. If you act now, we can keep the 
    faucets flowing.
    
    
    We're running out of water, Mayor %YOURNAME%. It's time to build more pumps 
    or water towers so we can continue to meet the growing demand. 
    
    If you believe the city can afford it, we could build a desalinization plant 
    down on the coast. 
    
    Water treatment plants are another option, cleaning up our water supply and 
    even making our pumping stations more efficient. As the city grows, I'd be 
    thinking about ways to encourage water conservation and control water 
    pollution, but that's just me. Water is so precious, I hate to see it wasted.
    
    
    Good job, Mayor %YOURNAME%. The water system is currently meeting all water 
    demands for %YOURCITY%. 
    
    Remember, if the city grows, the water needs will change. I'll continue to 
    make inspections, and give recommendations as necessary.
    
    
    Even after the demands of the city have been met, we have lots of water in 
    reserve. This will come in handy as the city grows.
    
    In the short term, though, we might consider finding a neighbor who will give 
    us cash for our oversupply. A deal to sell water could be a good financial 
    boost for our city, though once we make a deal, it's hard to get out of it 
    without paying a penalty.
    
    
    We've got plenty of water, but it's not getting to the Sims that need it. The 
    water grid needs inspecting. 
    
    I suggest you examine all zones and buildings. If they aren't piped directly 
    to a water main, or aren't close by a water main, you need to lay more pipes. 
    Then make sure that all the pumps are wired for power. Pumps won't work 
    without electricity.
    
    Even though this means some extra work for you, it has to be done. You must 
    make sure the Sims of this city receive all the water they need.
    
    
    There are still pockets of town where it doesn't matter how much water we 
    have -- it's just not getting to the Sims who need it. I'm fielding a lot of 
    service requests from different sections of the city, wondering why we're 
    treating them so unfairly. 
    
    I suggest you inspect the area and make sure the water connections are 
    proper. See that all zones are piped directly to a water main -- or are 
    located near one.
    
    
    Congratulations, Mayor %YOURNAME%! Thanks to your excellent decision-making, 
    our water grid is going swimmingly. My crews report full access to water in 
    all sections of %YOURCITY%. 
    
    Remember that as the city grows, its water needs increase. I'll continue to 
    make inspections and inform you of any significant changes.
    
    
    These new water treatment plants remove sewage and pollution from the water 
    supply.
    
    They're expensive to build, but water treatment plants can help a growing 
    city like ours keep its water supply sparkling.
    
    
    The new gas-burning power plants are great. They are much cleaner than coal 
    or oil, even though they're more expensive to build and operate. They produce 
    more power than coal or oil and they're easier to work with.
    
    I'm looking forward to working on these new power plants.
    
    
    I hear the new desalinization plants can convert seawater into freshwater. 
    They could be useful to us, but they certainly are very expensive. 
    
    If you build one, be careful where you put it. A desal plant that isn't next 
    to the sea is just a big box of rusting equipment.
    
    
    They've finally harnessed the power of the atom with nuclear power plants. I 
    never would have believed it could be done. 
    
    Nuclear power plants don't pollute much, at least in the usual way. They 
    produce a great deal of power, so we won't need many of them. They're 
    expensive to build, and are more risky than other plants because if a nuclear 
    plant explodes, it releases radiation. Sure don't want to see that happen.
    
    
    Have you heard about the new wind power plants? 
    
    Wind power is about the best there is when it comes to the environment. They 
    can be built almost anywhere, so they work well in parks or isolated areas 
    off the main power grid. Each windmill comes pretty cheaply, but it takes a 
    whole mess of them to generate much power. 
    
    They may be best for specialized power needs.
    
    
    When I was a kid I used a magnifying glass to burn holes in leaves by 
    focusing the rays of the sun. But getting large-scale power that way? I was 
    skeptical until I saw the new solar power plants.
    
    Solar plants are clean, efficient, and environmentally sound. 
    
    A few solar power plants in the city would make a nice addition to the 
    overall power supply, but we can't depend on the sun alone.
    
    
    While we're in no immediate danger, our funds are nearing a dangerously low 
    state. However we do have more of one valuable resource than we do of cash: 
    electrical power.
    
    I have been working with the mayor of a neighboring city on a package that 
    will trade power for much-needed development funds. I urge you to meet soon 
    to finalize the deal.
    
    Without sufficient reserves to meet our financial obligations, our city is 
    exposed to unnecessary risk.
    
    
    I'm afraid it's gotten a little dreary in %YOURCITY%. Sims complain that they 
    want more fun in their lives. All work and no play is a recipe for boredom.
    
    Unless we make our city a fun place to live, Sims will stop moving here and 
    our growth will stop.
    
    I recommend you add some recreational buildings -- parks or zoos, ballparks 
    or marinas -- anything to give your Sims a little fun.
    
    
    Congratulations, Mayor %YOURNAME%. We've grown large enough to support our 
    own sports team. All we need now is a stadium for them to play in. 
    
    Sims are strong sports fans. In fact, I predict that if we don't build a 
    stadium, no more Sims will choose to move here, and our growth will be 
    stunted.
    
    Make sure your stadium site is one that is easy for your Sims to travel to.
    
    
    Thanks to your watchful guidance, Mayor %YOURNAME%, our Commercial centers 
    are second to none, but one element is missing: customers. Call me a 
    shameless self-promoter, but I say we share the good news of our Commercial 
    capacities with as many cash-carrying clients as we can muster.
    
    We need an airport of sufficient size to match our growing stature in the 
    region. Every bit of airport space you zone helps boost our commercial 
    sector.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, surely you can see that people are clamoring to live here 
    in %YOURCITY%. Your dynamic leadership has crafted an outstanding place for 
    people to build homes and raise families. I'm confident they will understand 
    that this idyllic living doesn't come for free. 
    
    I urge you to raise Residential taxes in order to pay for the city services 
    these people will no doubt require.
    
    
    The current Residential tax rate represents sound fiscal planning. 
    
    Lower taxes will encourage population growth, and higher taxes can raise city 
    revenues. But there are risks involved. If you see fit to change the tax 
    rate, I caution you to use moderation, not whimsical experimentation.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, people are leaving %YOURCITY% in droves. A loss of 
    residential population can be the first step to a downward spiraling economy. 
    
    I urge you to lower taxes in an effort to keep your population intact, and 
    maybe even bring new residents here!
    
    
    Your Honor, a windfall opportunity is passing us by. Demand for Commercial 
    space is so high that businesses are bidding to get prime real estate in 
    %YOURCITY%. Surely you should also reap the rewards that come, after all, 
    from your crafting this business mecca. 
    
    Help fund the city services that support this booming economy by raising 
    taxes on Commercial interests.
    
    
    It is my cheerful duty to report that the current Commercial tax policy is a 
    balanced blend of collection and spending. 
    
    I suggest no change in policy. When things are working well, it is often best 
    to leave them alone.
    
    However, you might increase taxes slightly to raise revenues, or decrease 
    them slightly to stimulate Commercial growth.
    
    
    Your Honor, take note of the plight of business in %YOURCITY%. Commercial 
    ventures are already failing at record rates, and there doesn't seem to be an 
    inclination for others to set up shop here. Our tax policy on business 
    doesn't exactly invite commerce into the city. 
    
    It might be prudent to invest in tomorrow's businesses by reducing commercial 
    tax rates today.
    
    
    Your Honor, it is time to reap the rewards that come with economic growth. 
    You can see that the demand for industrial space is high and climbing, no 
    doubt due to the tax policies that have been kind to industry for so long. 
    
    Now is the time, however, to raise Industrial taxes to the level where they 
    can help to adequately fund your vision for tomorrow's %YOURCITY%.
    
    
    The current Industrial tax policy for %YOURCITY% appears to be working well. 
    It represents a good balance between revenue collected and the cost of 
    services provided. 
    
    You could raise taxes slightly without harming Industry, or lower them to 
    promote growth. However, I consider it unwise to make a change where none is 
    needed.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you well know that without industry and the jobs it 
    provides, the very foundation of %YOURCITY% is at risk. Now, industrial 
    leaders are finding more attractive places to build their companies, and your 
    onerous tax policies do nothing to convince them to stay. 
    
    For the good of the city, your Honor, reduce the Industrial tax rates.
    
    
    Your Honor, I really must commend you. We realized a large budget surplus 
    this year because city income was far greater than city expenses. Our budget 
    is a model of fiscal prudence. 
    
    While I don't normally suggest this, now is the right time to loosen our 
    pursestrings and spend money -- wisely, of course. Our cash reserves provide 
    a golden opportunity for us to invest in our city's future. 
    
    I suggest you ask your other advisors for ideas on how to make %YOURCITY% the 
    best it can be.^   Mayor %YOURNAME%, this kind of fiscal management is a bad 
    habit to get into. Though we have enough cash reserves on hand, a policy of 
    losing money every year will inevitably deplete our cash and force us to take 
    out loans or accept payments from neighbors or petitioners with undesirable 
    offers. 
    
    Please review your spending and improve our profits.
    
    
    Our city's financial future looks bright, Mayor %YOURNAME%. The treasury is 
    rich with cash, we have no loans outstanding, and it looks as if we'll make a 
    profit this year. Thanks to you, %YOURCITY% is a model of fiscal 
    responsibility. 
    
    If you want to make investments in new construction or other worthy city 
    projects, now is the time.
    
    
    Your Honor, it pains me to report that %YOURCITY% is running low on cash. We 
    are not in any immediate danger, though unless you take action, soon we won't 
    have enough in the treasury to pay for any new construction or zones. 
    
    I suggest you take out a loan to increase our overall cash reserves. Loans 
    carry hefty interest charges, but at this point, I don't see as we have many 
    other choices.
    
    I have a briefing in my files called "Loans" if you need more information.
    
    
    Your Honor, %YOURCITY% is completely out of cash. Until we have cash on hand, 
    you will be unable to build or zone anything new, although city services can 
    continue to operate. 
    
    I suggest you reduce spending on city services immediately, and accept any 
    money-making deals from neighbors or petitioners. You may have to consider a 
    loan.
    
    
    Sims are all ruffled about traffic. Next thing you know, they'll be 
    complaining that they can't get to their jobs or shop or what all. They're 
    flapping their yaddles for more bus, rail and subway routes with frequent 
    stops and stations. 
    
    You might also review the transit budget, making sure the system has enough 
    money for basic maintenance. Building some extra roads probably couldn't 
    hurt.
    
    Between you, me and the chair, I don't think it's as bad as they say, but you 
    gotta do something to keep them happy.
    
    
    They're getting all ruffled about traffic in the city. Reworking the road 
    intersections might help some. Build some more roads or build a mass transit 
    line. Just make sure that travel routes link Residential areas to the places 
    where Sims work and shop. Give the Sims a place to go, if you know what I 
    mean. 
    
    I just hope they don't start yelling once they see how much things cost. Like 
    my Uncle George used to tell me, you can't please some Sims no how.
    
    
    How do you figure? You give 'em roads, you give 'em transit, and they just 
    give you grief. I suppose it couldn't hurt to take another look at the roads 
    in the city and make sure everything's connected properly. 
    
    Might as well check mass transit while you're there. It might not take Sims 
    where they want to go, or the stops may not be in convenient locations -- 
    Sims won't walk very far to get to a transit stop.
    
    Sims are a cantankerous bunch, no question. Sure as sunrise they'll gripe 
    about something or other.
    
    
    Boy, them Sims, go figure. They complain about the smallest thing, but never 
    thank you when you do a good job. 
    
    Not me. I'm happy to report that you're doing a great job managing traffic. 
    You sure make my job easier.
    
    This is a good time for me to take some vacation. Friends of mine in the 
    County Seat are having a little get-together. Or I might do a little fishing 
    with Cousin Albert outside %ANYNEIGHBOR%. I'll put in a good word for you if 
    we get to talking about business.
    
    
    Call me crazy, but I think maybe you should build some roads. Lay down any 
    pattern you like. You see, the city can't grow unless the Sims have some way 
    to get around. 
    
    Now, I know some mayors don't like cars and want to build a city without 
    roads. We can do that, but it's a lot more work. Sims need lots of subways 
    and rail stations if they can't drive. They won't walk very far to get to a 
    transit stop. 
    
    Between you, me and the wall, I wish Sims could all fly. My job would be a 
    lot easier.
    
    
    It's getting hard for Sims to get to work and back. If you want the city to 
    get bigger, you'll need travel routes between Residential and Commercial 
    zones and also between Residential and Industrial zones. Maybe some more 
    roads, or some more mass transit stations. Whatever you decide is fine with 
    me. I guarantee first-class work, no questions asked.
    
    Personally, I'd go with roads -- it's easier and it usually makes Sims 
    happier. Not that it makes any difference to me.
    
    
    I'm as shocked as you to hear rumors that the city's road budget gets more 
    than it needs. I assure you my staff and I are working hard to spend every 
    last simoleon. There's no need to panic.
    
    The last thing you should do is cut back on the budget. 
    
    Don't fret now, I guarantee there won't be any problem finding ways to spend 
    the money.
    
    
    It's better to hear news like this from a trusted advisor than from a 
    stranger. The fact is, our road budget only meets current needs.
    
    Like you, I've heard the so-called financial experts say that everything is 
    fine, that no increase is necessary. I think you should ignore them and raise 
    funding. I guarantee that my staff and I can find ways to spend any 
    additional money.
    
    
    Somebody's all fuss and feathers about potholes slowing traffic and making 
    everyone late for work.
    
    Now, I'm not complaining, but I don't have enough money to do everything that 
    needs doing. 
    
    We need more money in the road budget so I could keep everything fixed. If 
    you wanted to tear up some underused roads that don't get much use, that 
    would be fine too. Just make sure they aren't roads you might want later.
    
    
    Road repair in %YOURCITY% has gotten worse. The traffic jams make everyone so 
    mad I'm afraid to go outside.
    
    There's not enough money in the road budget no matter how many different ways 
    I count it. My department needs more money to keep the roads from getting 
    worse, pure and simple. And if you want us to repair all the potholes, we'll 
    need a lot more. 
    
    Like my Uncle George used to say, "It's easier to keep things fixed than it 
    is to repair them after they break."
    
    
    The shocking rumors of overfunding for the city's mass transit system is 
    misleading, at best. There is no question that we are above average in 
    spending. Some city has to be. Why not %YOURCITY%? 
    
    Don't forget that the quality of this city's mass transit is unmatched 
    anywhere. Don't your Sims deserve the best? With the money we have in the 
    budget, we can finally afford those plush velvet seat cushions I saw featured 
    in last month's issue of "All Aboard."
    
    
    I've just received some bad news about our mass transit system. Funding for 
    the system is only adequate. I can't tell you how disappointed I am. I blame 
    myself for this, not you. I should have asked for more money earlier.
    
    I won't make that mistake again. In fact, I suggest increasing the mass 
    transit budget right now. I'll get my staff to spend as much as possible. 
    Before long, we'll be a far cry from adequate, I assure you.
    
    Confidentially, a little extra money in the budget wouldn't hurt things a 
    bit.
    
    
    I don't ask for more money very often, but it looks like the kettle is 
    boiling over on the stove. My staff can't keep things together with the 
    current budget. Our mass transit system is just not running like it should. 
    And my staff doesn't like working extra hours without pay.
    
    Like I say, I don't beg for money very often, but unless there's an increase 
    in the mass tranist budget, my workers will go on strike and the whole system 
    will shut down.
    
    
    The %YOURCITY% mass transit system has been hit by a strike. I don't even 
    have anyone left who can tell the Sims that we had to shut everything down. 
    
    Now, I'm not one to ask for something I don't need. Fact is, only money can 
    solve this problem. The mass transit budget needs more money, pure and 
    simple. I can't get Sims to work for nothing. I've tried, believe me.
    
    Without more money there's nothing I can do.
    
    
    It looks like the current airport zone isn't developing. Better check to see 
    that you've zoned enough land for an airport, then see it's receiving power. 
    It goes without saying that the airport must be built near a road or rail 
    line so Sims can get to it.
    
    Be patient, Mayor. Once the airport gets going, %YOURCITY% will really take 
    off.
    
    
    These subways are the best thing since eckleberry cheesecake. They may be 
    expensive, but they don't require much land, and they're a real efficient way 
    to move Sims.
    
    I know they'll make my job a lot easier, you bet. As long as the stops are 
    near busy intersections and the lines connect different zones, we'll have 
    Sims riding underground in no time.
    
    Between you, me and the turnstile, I bet there won't be any more transit 
    problems once we build a subway system.
    
    
    These busses are the best thing to hit the road since last year's rain. The 
    roads can handle three times as many Sims with a good bus system. As long as 
    we build the bus stops close enough together and make sure bus lines connect 
    different zones, Sims will use the busses and plenty of them.
    
    I bet there won't be any more traffic problems once we get some busses 
    rolling.
    
    
    Long-term underfunding of healthcare has brought on a strike by doctors, 
    nurses and orderlies. Hospitals are still functioning, but with skeletal 
    staffs attending to emergencies. All elective procedures have been postponed.
    
    I'm dismayed that the situation has come to this. You owe it to your Sims to 
    make a sharp increase in healthcare funding immediately to end this strike.
    
    
    The healthcare system of this city is in serious need of money. Chronic 
    underfunding is having a negative impact on the life expectancy of our 
    citizens, making the city a less desirable place to live and an easier place 
    to die. 
    
    I urge you to increase funding immediately. If you ignore this issue, a 
    healthcare strike is likely, with unpredictable and potentially grave 
    consequences.
    
    
    I'm deeply concerned about the low level of healthcare funding. There are 
    simply not enough doctors and nurses to provide Sims the kind of care they 
    need. 
    
    We're not in a crisis, but people are suffering nonetheless. Funding at this 
    level means long lines at the Emergency Room and no preventive care.
    
    The health of your Sims should be among your highest priorities. Of what 
    value is anything else without the health to enjoy it? I strongly recommend 
    you increase funding for health care.
    
    
    They say our healthcare funding is adequate, and I will not dispute that 
    claim. This ensures only that things will not get worse. 
    
    But with increased funds, we could become the envy of SimNation. Our Sims 
    will be well cared for, and our medical researchers may find a cure for all 
    the heart-breaking simulated diseases that strike our citizens.
    
    
    Great work, Mayor %YOURNAME%! Our hospitals and medical centers are the envy 
    of the region. You should do everything in your power to maintain this 
    achievement. 
    
    I recommend against any reduction in the budget. Doctors expect a certain 
    level of fashion; how can we deny them designer scrubs? And patients are 
    uninspired by the recorded music in the waiting room; finally we have the 
    money to bring in live bands.
    
    
    I'm sorry to report that chronic underfunding of schools has prompted a 
    school employees strike. All schools are closed, and there's little doubt the 
    children are getting into mischief. 
    
    I urge you to accept the union demands; increase educational funding 
    immediately. 
    
    Education is the most valuable gift you can give your Sims.
    
    
    %YOURCITY% schools need money. Classrooms are overcrowded, parents are upset, 
    and test scores have dropped to embarrassing levels. I could hardly blame the 
    teachers and staff if they go on strike.
    
    I strongly urge you to make sufficient investments in your city's education. 
    Raise education funding now before children's minds are damaged forever.
    
    
    Our school system is nothing to be embarrassed about, but we could do better. 
    
    Show the Sims that education is one of your top priorities -- increase the 
    education budget a bit and make sure that we have enough schools to serve our 
    growing population. 
    
    Money spent on education is an investment in the future.
    
    
    All of SimNation is astounded with the quality of our school system. When I 
    see wide smiles on the faces of our young students, I swell with pride. So 
    should you, since it was your decisions that brought us where we are today.  
    
    We have quite a reputation to live up to, and dare not let things slip. I 
    suggest you keep doing what you've been doing. Maintain the budget level and 
    add new schools as our population grows.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, it's time you built a school or two. Without schools, no 
    Sims will want to live here for very long. 
    
    Building a school should be at the top of your agenda. After all, education 
    is the most important gift you can give your Sims, and the cornerstone of the 
    city's future.
    
    
    We're producing more garbage than we can process. It's piling up and starting 
    to stink.
    
    I saw this same thing when I was vacationing in Bradshaw Falls. The mayor 
    there solved the problem by paying a neighboring city to haul away all their 
    garbage.
    
    I'm sure we could do the same thing here. If we build a road or rail 
    connection to one of our neighbors, they might be willing to make a deal.
    
    
    We can't process our own garbage fast enough. The odor is getting unbearable; 
    I don't blame the Sims for complaining. 
    
    I heard about a similar problem at a conference in South Greben. The 
    Grebenese council solved the problem by building a seaport and shipping their 
    garbage to a neighbor for a fee.
    
    I bet we could do the same thing here. If you build a seaport, I'm sure a 
    neighbor would offer to take our excess garbage. It might be worth the cost.
    
    
    I saw a demonstration of the new Municipal Solid Waste incinerator at the 
    Whipple Creek Garbage Symposium last month. It burned a lot of garbage, but 
    it spewed out a lot of pollution. Trading pollution on the ground for 
    pollution in the air is not an ideal solution, but I did want to make you 
    aware of the option. 
    
    If you do decide to build one, find an isolated place to build it. No one 
    would want to live near the stinking, belching one I saw.
    
    
    We have a new approach to trash at our disposal: the Recycling Center.
    
    When I was visiting my sister outside %ANYNEIGHBOR% last week, I saw how that 
    city uses its new Recycling Center. It's amazing how well it cut down the 
    production of garbage. Recycling Centers are a win-win option, cutting down 
    on the amount of trash we have to bury, burn or ship away. 
    
    Though we won't be able to recycle all our trash, we can pass an ordinance to 
    get the Sims themselves to pre-sort and make the process more efficient.
    
    
    I saw the new Waste-To-Energy incinerator at the %ANYNEIGHBOR% Waste 
    Treatment Expo. The incinerator is quite an advance, but does have some 
    drawbacks.
    
    A Waste-To-Energy incinerator can handle a lot more garbage than older 
    incinerators, and they create electric energy that the city can use. But they 
    are expensive to build, and create a lot of air pollution. 
    
    You'll have to decide if one of these incinerators would be good for us.
    
    
    We aren't processing enough of our own garbage. It's a mess out there, and 
    I'm afraid it's becoming a health hazard too. 
    
    You could zone landfill space to increase our city's garbage processing 
    capacity. Another option is to look into making a deal with a neighbor to 
    export some of our trash. (There's a briefing on Neighbor Deals in my files 
    if you want to learn more.)
    
    Whatever you decide, act quickly -- we can't let this problem get worse.
    
    
    %YOURCITY% is nearing the point where we can't process any more garbage. 
    
    You should consider zoning more landfill space or building more incinerators 
    before the problem gets out of hand.
    
    And now is a good time to expand the city's recycling program; Recycling 
    Centers really help to reduce garbage levels. As your Sims may have told you, 
    the Trash Presort Ordinance is great for a city that recycles.
    
    
    Good news, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Our city has excess garbage capacity, so we are 
    currently in no danger of having garbage pile up in the streets. If you 
    continue to increase our processing capacity as the city grows, garbage will 
    not be a problem for %YOURCITY%.
    
    I plan to spend the next few weeks attending several environmental 
    conferences in the region, but I'll still monitor the city garbage situation 
    and tell you if any changes are necessary.
    
    
    The pollution in %YOURCITY% is starting to affect our water supply. 
    
    I read a case study on a city that faced the same problem. Their mayor dealt 
    with it by building water treatment plants. It helped, but overall pollution 
    was still a problem.
    
    We could build water treatment plants here as well, as a partial solution. 
    But we should do more to reduce pollution in the first place. The case study 
    mentioned power plants, seaports, landfills, incinerators, and heavy industry 
    as major contributors to pollution problems.
    
    
    %YOURCITY% is losing large amounts of its water to pollution. I'm afraid 
    water pollution is starting to affect Sim life expectancy, and land values 
    are starting to drop. 
    
    When this happened in West Moralis Mews, the mayor did nothing. The city kept 
    its high-polluting industries, its fossil-fuel power plants, and filth-
    spewing incinerators. It got so bad they had to tag all the public fountains 
    with skull-and-crossbones symbols. 
    
    Water treatment plants can help, but the problem has reached a point that the 
    only long-term solution is to address the root cause: we must reduce 
    pollution levels in our city.
    
    
    Our pollution levels are approaching the levels I observed in Coxford Cove 
    during my recent nature expedition there. Plant and animal life there has 
    been so radically affected that parts of it resemble the moon. 
    
    We can't let that happen here. You must reduce our pollution levels. Help 
    change our industry from high-polluting to high-tech. Replace older fossil-
    fuel energy plants to cleaner types. Reduce traffic congestion and enact 
    anti-pollution ordinances. Act quickly, before things get worse.
    
    
    Though by national standards our pollution has reached a tolerable level, who 
    wants to live in a place that's only tolerable?  
    
    I suggest you steer us away from high-polluting industries and build low-
    polluting power plants and incinerators. Enact anti-polluting ordinances and 
    reduce traffic congestion. 
    
    Pollution reduces land value and lowers the health of your Sims. Reducing 
    pollution helps everyone.
    
    
    Congratulations! Your efforts in reducing air pollution have paid off. Our 
    pollution levels are very low.
    
    This seems like a good opportunity for me to take some vacation. There's an 
    environmental conference in %ANYNEIGHBOR% I'd like to attend. In any event, 
    I'll continue monitoring air pollution, and inform you of any changes.
    
    
    With you at the helm, Mayor %YOURNAME%, manufactured goods from %YOURCITY% 
    are piling up quickly. They may say I'm impossible to satisfy, but this very 
    growth has started a transportation problem -- we can't ship enough goods 
    outside the city. Our industries want us to open up our borders. 
    
    I suggest building rail lines to the city's edge to connect us with our 
    neighbors. Trains would be just the thing to send goods out and bring 
    simoleons in. 
    
    Zoning a seaport on a river or coast would also turn the currency tide our 
    way.
    
    
    The Commercial interests have been grumbling that they lack a healthy 
    customer base. They want you to open our borders to clients outside 
    %YOURCITY%. 
    
    I recommend you build some roads or highways to the city borders to bring in 
    cash-rich clients from neighboring cities. Or perhaps we should build an 
    airport to let our Commercial centers take wing.
    
    
    Your steady hand on the wheel here at %YOURCITY% has driven our Commercial 
    centers a long way -- but we're running out of gas. We need more outside 
    buyers to fuel our economy. 
    
    I suggest you add or expand connections to all the neighboring cities. If you 
    replace road connections with highways, that should would greatly increase 
    the traffic through town, helping our retailers. You could expand the 
    airport, too.
    
    
    Due to your managerial genius, Mayor %YOURNAME%, our industries are producing 
    a mountain of goods, but there are some problems as well. Shipping and rail 
    lines serving %YOURCITY% are choked, undermanned and outmoded. It seems to me 
    that expanding our seaport could be one of your most lasting legacies. 
    
    I recommend you expand our seaport to increase our exports, or zone a new 
    seaport. This will allow the city to export even more manufactured goods.
    
    
    The airplane is the best thing since wood floated on water. It can bring Sims 
    here from everywhere, from as far away as Coxford Cove and then some.
    
    Choosing the right site is important. Airports pollute, so you don't want 'em 
    too close to Sim's homes. It's a good idea to leave room to expand the 
    airport as the city grows. 
    
    As long as you make the airport big enough, give it power and make it so Sims 
    can get to it easily enough, you should see the airport develop in no time.
    
    
    The recent earthquake was very small at 3.5 on the Van-Wobbler scale, but we 
    did sustain some property damage in an area around the faultline.
    
    %X% buildings were destroyed at a cost of %Y%. Damage would have been much 
    less if you had enacted the Earthquake Preparedness and Retrofit Ordinance.
    
    I suggest you start repairs immediately. Bulldoze the rubble, and level the 
    terrain in the damaged area.
    
    
    The recent earthquake was small, only 3.8 on the Van-Wobbler scale. 
    Fortunately, we were fully prepared for this disaster and did not sustain 
    much damage.
    
    Your decision to enact the Earthquake Preparedness and Retrofit ordinance was 
    a sound decision. Without it, even a small earthquake would have caused 
    damage to the city.
    
    
    The tornado that ripped through our city is gone. 
    
    You are to be commended for issuing a warning in time for the Sims to take 
    cover. Your timely action helped save lives, and minimized property damage. 
    Nevertheless %X% buildings were damaged at a cost of %Y%.
    
    Unfortunately, your Sims are unable to repair the damaged city 
    infrastructure. You must do that for them.
    
    
    The recent tornado was highly destructive. %X% buildings were damaged or 
    destroyed, at a cost of %Y%. Since you failed to issue a timely Emergency 
    Warning, many Sims were caught unprepared, and the lives of many were thrown 
    into turmoil.
    
    I suggest that the next time you have information that can save lives and 
    property, you share it. For the time being, you should make necessary repairs 
    to infrastructure damaged by the disaster.
    
    
    The UFO attack is over. What a bizarre and unpleasant visitor!
    
    Your timely issuance of an Emergency Warning proved providential. My 
    department was able to help the Sims of %YOURCITY% get to safety and take 
    precautions, which reduced overall damage. Only %X% buildings were destroyed 
    at a cost of %Y%. 
    
    Though there was still infrastructure damage which I urge you to swiftly 
    repair, the city suffered less than it might have, thanks to our Emergency 
    Warning Siren.
    
    
    The recent riots went virtually unchecked because of a lack of police 
    protection in the area. 
    
    %X% buildings were seriously damaged at a cost of %Y%. More police protection 
    in the area is absolutely necessary, but it would be only a short-term 
    solution. 
    
    I suggest you work to increase employment and provide alternatives to crime. 
    Otherwise, riots will recur.
    
    
    The damage done by the fire was extensive and tragic. I can't begin to count 
    how many Sims had their lives disrupted. 
    
    I recommend that you immediately build new fire stations in underserved 
    areas. I further recommend you increase funding for fire protection. 
    
    I will not tolerate a repetition of this tragedy.
    
    
    Police coverage is far below acceptable levels. Much of the city has no 
    coverage at all. The few police officers I have are at great risk. 
    
    You must build more police stations immediately. My department can provide 
    you with a map that will help you determine where to place them for maximum 
    effectiveness. 
    
    Adding police stations will protect your Sims and increase property values.
    
    
    For a city our size, police coverage is ridiculously spotty. Many parts of 
    the city have no police protection at all, and Sims walk in fear.
    
    I insist that you build enough police stations to adequately cover the city. 
    My department has prepared a crime map to help you determine the best places 
    to build. 
    
    The safety of Sims should be your primary concern.
    
    
    Some sections of the city are still outside the existing police precincts. 
    Sims are reluctant to move into these areas, and those that remain are 
    continually on edge. Only if all the zoned areas and other buildings are 
    covered can we be assured that if riots break out the police will be able to 
    control the situation.
    
    Your best option is to place additional police stations in all underserved 
    areas. Check the crime map to determine the best locations for new police 
    stations.
    
    
    Though we've managed to cover all areas of the city with police precincts, 
    the police are disappointedly ineffective in their fight against crime. It 
    all boils down to money.
    
    You are not giving me enough money to pay for modern equipment or to hire new 
    officers. In fact, I may be forced to lay-off some officers just to stay 
    within my budget. 
    
    I'm asking you to increase police funding, Mayor %YOURNAME%. That will make 
    our police force more effective.
    
    
    Our police officers have called a strike, and I must say I understand why. 
    Their working conditions and salaries are totally unacceptable.
    
    During the strike, patrol duties will fall to the sergeants and senior brass, 
    and they can't do the work of the entire force. Expect police effectiveness 
    to drop sharply. 
    
    Our city is at risk: crime will rise, riots will be more likely to break out, 
    and property values will fall. I suggest you raise the police budget and call 
    a halt to this strike before something drastic happens.
    
    
    Throughout the city our hard-working crime fighters have grown disenchanted, 
    dissatisfied by long hours, no pay raises and little support from your 
    office. There has been talk of a strike if conditions do not improve. 
    
    I strongly recommend that you increase police funding. My officers deserve 
    the best. Without a top-notch police force, this city will be overrun with 
    crime and will see its land value crumble.
    
    
    An internal analysis finds that the %YOURCITY% police department receives 
    sufficient funding. We can do better than that.
    
    Increased funding would allow us to boost morale by redecorating the 
    Detective's lounge, equipping every patrol car with leather seats, adding new 
    exercise equipment to the officer's gym, and other worthy projects.
    
    I urge you to increase police funding so this department can be the best that 
    it can be...
    
    
    The level of fire coverage for this city is totally inadequate. I strongly 
    recommend that you place fire stations so that coverage is provided for as 
    much of the city as we can afford -- ideally, the entire city. 
    
    My department has prepared a flammability map showing what areas of the city 
    are unprotected. I suggest you study it and place fire stations where they 
    will do the most good.
    
    
    Much of the city is without sufficient fire protection. This is unacceptable. 
    If fire breaks out in poorly covered areas, you will be forced to manually 
    dispatch fire crews. 
    
    I suggest you review the flammability map my department has prepared and 
    determine where to place additional fire stations.
    
    I will not stand by and allow slipshod fire protection in this city.
    
    
    Parts of our city are still without sufficient fire coverage. Only if all the 
    zoned areas and other buildings are covered can we be assured that any fire 
    will be put out without your having to dispatch special crews.
    
    I strongly suggest you study the flammability maps provided by my department 
    and place fire stations where they can do the most good.
    
    
    The firefighters are on strike. After so many years of inadequate funding, it 
    is hard to blame them. Firefighters risk their lives protecting us, but I 
    cannot stand by and see those risks made worse through a lack of standard 
    equipment.
    
    I insist that funding for the fire department be raised to acceptable levels 
    that reflect both the danger and difficulty of the job.
    
    The fire stations are still in operation, since the Captains and higher brass 
    are still working while the rank and file strike. But fire effectiveness will 
    be decreased substantially. This will no doubt result in more fire damage 
    throughout the city.
    
    
    Our chronic underfunding of the fire department continues to undermine 
    morale. The entire staff is discouraged by long hours, old equipment, and 
    poor salaries. 
    
    If a fire breaks out, it will take much longer to put them out, putting Sim 
    lives at risk. I predict a city-wide firefighters strike unless you increase 
    fire funding immediately,
    
    
    We can get by scrimping on old equipment and low maintenance, but consider 
    the risks involved. Firefighters race off to a blaze and their truck gets a 
    flat tire for lack of money to buy new ones. They finally arrive at the scene 
    and their hose splits in two. Who can blame them for grumbling?
    
    I insist you increase funding for the fire department. The Sims of %YOURCITY% 
    deserve better.
    
    
    The firefighters of %YOURCITY% are receiving average funding. These Sims are 
    a well-trained, hardworking group of public servants, but the job can be a 
    bit boring.  
    
    I suggest you increase the fire budget. Additional funds will allow my 
    department to invest in morale-boosters, such as private bowling lanes for 
    bored firemen waiting for fires to happen and extended visits with firemen in 
    neighboring cities.
    
    
    I'm deeply troubled. The Sims of %YOURCITY% are so desperate for reading 
    material that they go to the bathroom more often than necessary just to read 
    the walls.
    
    Stop this insanity; every Sim must eat, must breathe, and must read. Graffiti 
    is not enough -- they need books. I highly recommend you build libraries -- 
    lots of them -- in easily accessible areas of the city.
    
    A city that invests in libraries is recognized as a city that is poised to 
    meet the future. And libraries in a city help to attract high-tech and 
    cleaner industries.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME% it appears that you are unaware how important museums are to 
    a city. Education is a lifelong process that should not stop when a Sim 
    finishes school. Museums are an excellent way to keep synapses snapping in 
    adult Sims. Looking at dusty artifacts keeps their brains from collecting 
    dust. 
    
    This is no one-shot commitment either. The higher the population, the more 
    museums we'll need.
    
    Build enough museums to serve the city. Your Sims, and history, will thank 
    you.
    
    
    I'm concerned about the overcrowding in our city schools. I've heard reports 
    of classes being taught in hallways and bathrooms for lack of other 
    facilities, and under these conditions it's impossible for them to keep up 
    academically. Test scores have plummeted. 
    
    You need to remedy this situation quickly. I advise you to build additional 
    schools in various locations around the city. 
    
    Act soon to give all our young Sims a place to learn. There is no substitute 
    for a good education.
    
    
    I'm very distressed by the low health level in this city. Do you want to be 
    the mayor of a wheezing, puss-filled, vermin center? I think not. This is a 
    shameful situation, not worthy of your Sims.
    
    I suggest you build more hospitals and increase healthcare funding. You could 
    also improve the general health of Sims by reducing pollution levels.
    
    
    Guess what? We've made the SimNational news! A team of reporters has arrived 
    to film a documentary called, "Secrets Of %YOURCITY% Sims: Why They Live So 
    Long"
    
    I believe the reason for our longevity is your sincere commitment to this 
    city's healthcare. Keep it up, Mayor %YOURNAME%, and let the happy, healthy 
    faces of your Sims be your reward.
    
    
    I'm sad to report that our children are scoring very low on standardized 
    tests. Neighboring cities are poking fun at us, referring to our Sims as 
    lettuceheads. I don't find this situation funny. In fact it is disastrous, 
    particularly since the economy demands higher educational levels for 
    employees who work in modern industry.
    
    I suggest you build more schools and colleges, making sure they are funded 
    properly. Augment these with museums and libraries. An investment in 
    education is money well spent.
    
    
    I'm concerned that the education level of our Sims is far too low. 
    
    Improving education is a slow process. You can't just build a school and 
    expect everyone to be smarter the day it opens. Get the schools and colleges 
    in place, fund them appropriately, and then give them some time to make an 
    impact. 
    
    Build libraries and museums too, so older Sims can reap the benefits of an 
    ongoing education.
    
    
    I'm worried that our education level is only average. If we want to have a 
    leading role in the future, we must prepare our citizens with the best 
    education money can buy. 
    
    Since education is a slow, painstaking process, we need well-funded schools 
    for a generation or two to see a real impact on our children. The smartest 
    thing you could do is build more schools and colleges and fund them 
    adequately. 
    
    And don't forget about the adults. Unless you want %YOURCITY% to be a city 
    full of dullards, keep your Sims alert and inquisitive by giving them 
    libraries and museums.
    
    
    Education levels in %YOURCITY% are satisfactory, but should we be satisfied 
    with satisfactory? Not if we are to prepare for the demands of the future, 
    when a higher and higher level of education will be required for even the 
    'average' job.
    
    My recommendation? Don't skimp on funding; increase educational funding 
    levels to their maximum. Build schools, colleges, museums and libraries. 
    After all, education is the key to opportunity.
    
    
    Remarkable, isn't it Mayor %YOURNAME%? Sims in %YOURCITY% are smarter than I 
    ever imagined they could become. Our education levels are literally off the 
    scale. It's all due to your belief in the importance of education. 
    
    Thanks to you, we now have the most highly educated workforce in the region. 
    Just what clean, high-tech industries are looking for.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we need more hospitals. Our population has outgrown the 
    current hospital capacity. Reports are that Sims must wait months for 
    elective procedures, and the overcrowding in our emergency rooms is 
    threatening city health.
    
    I urge you build more hospitals immediately.
    
    Remember, good health is the only thing that really matters. Nothing can be 
    enjoyed without it.
    
    
    Overcrowding in city jails has reached the point where we find ourselves 
    forced to let criminals out long before their time is served, and many serve 
    no time at all. You can imagine how our police officers feel when the 
    criminals they catch are released right back out onto the streets. It's like 
    watching a revolving door.
    
    Build more jails and you will help bring down our crime rate. Anything less 
    is unsatisfactory.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we must have a jail. 
    
    My police officers are on the streets fighting crime day and night, and are 
    losing the battle. The crime rate is already high, and without a jail, we are 
    forced to let criminals back onto the streets.
    
    I insist you build a jail, though I suggest you avoid building it too close 
    to residential areas. Jails tend to lower the surrounding land value.
    
    
    The jails of this city are nearly full. This is simply not acceptable. 
    
    A city should have enough jails to support all its police stations. 
    %YOURCITY% doesn't. Instead, we have overcrowded conditions that are not good 
    for prisoners, guards, or the police. Overcrowding often leads to prison 
    riots. 
    
    I strongly suggest that you build more jails now.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we've let %YOURCITY% become the crime capital of the 
    region. Many Sims stay locked up in their houses all day and have their 
    groceries delivered, just to make sure they aren't robbed while they're out 
    buying vegetables. 
    
    Building more police stations and raising the police budget are good ways to 
    combat crime, but a crime wave like this reflects deep structural problems 
    and cannot be fought with police alone. 
    
    We need to boost our city's economy and review our zoning priorities, 
    particularly the high density zones where crime breeds most quickly.
    
    
    I am deeply troubled that %YOURCITY% still does not have a hospital. Sims who 
    become ill have no place to recuperate. 
    
    More importantly, no doctor wants to work in a city without decent 
    facilities. If we build a hospital, we'll be able to attract physicians, and 
    good doctors mean good health for the city.
    
    I strongly suggest you place a hospital immediately. Remember, you can give 
    no greater gift to your Sims than good health.
    
    
    The recent earthquake was very large, a 6.9 on the Van-Wobbler scale. It 
    destroyed everything near the faultline. %X% buildings were destroyed and 
    damage may run as high as %Y%.
    
    This incident clearly shows the need for the Earthquake Preparedness and 
    Retrofit Ordinance. Damage would have been much less had this ordinance been 
    in place.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, city growth is at a standstill. Sims will not move into our 
    city unless there are jobs for them and %YOURCITY% simply doesn't have enough 
    businesses to provide them jobs.
    
    I suggest you zone Commercial or Industrial areas right away, to encourage 
    economic growth. This should satisfy current residents and attract new ones. 
    Make sure the new zones have power and water, and that they have roads or 
    mass transit lines. 
    
    In the future, try to keep an eye on the balance of zone types. A city grows 
    fastest when its Residential zones are supported by some combination of 
    Industrial and Commercial zones.
    
    
    The recent earthquake was moderate, at 5.4 on the Van-Wobbler scale. We've 
    lost %X% buildings at a cost of %Y%. 
    
    It's time to bulldoze the rubble and restore the terrain. I also suggest you 
    enact the Earthquake Preparedness and Retrofit Ordinance. Had this ordinance 
    been in place, we would have sustained considerably less damage.
    
    
    The recent earthquake was moderate, measuring at 4.2 on the Van-Wobbler 
    scale. 
    
    Thanks to the Earthquake Preparedness and Retrofit Ordinance, however, damage 
    was much less than it might have been. It destroyed only %X% buildings at an 
    estimated cost of %Y%.
    
    
    I am pleased to report that police coverage in %YOURCITY% is excellent. 
    Though crime is a fact of life for any city, in ours we are keeping it to a 
    minimum. 
    
    I will keep you informed if this situation changes.
    
    
    The recent earthquake hit 6.7 on the Van-Wobbler scale, which is massive 
    indeed. It destroyed %X% buildings, everything within two blocks of the 
    faultline. The estimated cost of this disaster is %Y%. Luckily, the 
    Earthquake Preparedness and Retrofit Ordinance helped keep damage to a 
    minimum. 
    
    The area still needs to be cleaned up. I suggest bulldozing the rubble and 
    restoring the terrain. We have had a setback, but the city must go on.    I 
    am pleased to report that the city is completely covered by highly effective 
    fire districts. 
    
    This doesn't mean we will never experience fires, but the fire departments in 
    each area of the city should be able to handle any conflagration without your 
    dispatching additional help.
    
    Mayor, it's getting so Sims can't walk down the street without half-expecting 
    to get mugged. My police officers are stretched too thinly, and both officers 
    and citizens are calling for reinforcements.
    
    We've prepared a map of precinct locations and coverage to help you plan 
    improvements, but my department can only do so much. Unless you deal with the 
    deep structural forces that tend to produce crime, such as unemployment, low 
    property values and overcrowding, the best police force in the world will be 
    overwhelmed.
    
    
    Congratulations! I've just received word that a high-tech research lab has 
    moved into town. This signals a turning point in the city's industrial 
    development. 
    
    I suggest we start discouraging older polluting factories in favor of clean, 
    high-tech companies. Slowly converting to cleaner industries should make 
    %YOURCITY% a nicer place to live. 
    
    You can encourage this type of development by keeping your citizens well-
    educated and passing ordinances that favor high-tech companies.
    
    
    Many of our prominent business owners have made the decision to leave 
    %YOURCITY%. Why? Because there aren't enough Sims to fill all the jobs these 
    companies need filled. We simply don't have enough Residential zones to house 
    all the Sims that business and industry needs to survive.
    
    I suggest you set up more Residential zones at once. That should bring in 
    more Sims. 
    
    If we're lucky, maybe we can get back many of the companies that left.
    
    
    Can you see how upset I am! Your careless spending has driven this city deep 
    into debt. I've never seen such fiscal mismanagement! 
    
    You must either take drastic measures to turn this city around, or you should 
    begin to think about finding a city where you can start over. I don't believe 
    the City Council will stand for this much longer.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, funds are at an all-time low, your Sims are unhappy, and 
    the City Council has determined that you alone are to blame. I'm afraid we 
    have no choice but to remove you from office. I'm confident, though, that 
    there are other cities and other Sims out there who would be willing to give 
    you another chance at success.
    
    You have one decision left to make.
    
    
    Your Honor, the %YOURCITY% treasury cannot stand a sustained policy of 
    operating at a loss like this. You must find a way to raise revenues or lower 
    spending to put us in the black or we may never be able to recover from this 
    lack of funds. 
    
    We will be doomed to certain and inevitable failure.
    
    
    Few things are as painful as watching a thriving neighborhood deteriorate to 
    nothing, but it's happening right here in %YOURCITY%. Sims are abandoning 
    entire neighborhoods because they are fed up with the constant power 
    shortages.
    
    You need to keep a closer watch over the city, Mayor. Restore power to the 
    abandoned zones, and with luck we can convince the Sims to move back in.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, I've just received word that some of the buildings in our 
    city have been abandoned. My sources say this was caused by a lack of 
    adequate water. 
    
    This didn't need to happen. Forgive me for saying so, but you need to keep a 
    closer watch over your city. Make sure that all buildings are receiving 
    water. If you restore water to the abandoned buildings, we may be able to get 
    the Sims to move back in.
    
    
    Well it's hit the news already. You're being blamed for not providing 
    adequate transportation to all zones in the city, and some of those zones are 
    emptying out quickly. It's such a shame to see this happen after an area has 
    built up so nicely.
    
    There may still be time to save them. Restore adequate transportation routes 
    to the abandoned zones and with luck, we'll see these areas flourish again.
    
    
    We have a lot of pent-up demand for housing. Our Commercial and Industrial 
    sectors have plenty of jobs open, but this city doesn't have enough 
    Residential areas to house new workers. I've learned that Sims from around 
    SimNation are eagerly waiting to move in to %YOURCITY% as soon as there are 
    homes to move in to.
    
    My advice is to zone some more Residential zones immediately. Make sure all 
    new areas are powered, watered, and adequately served by transportation. 
    
    If we don't provide Residential zones soon, our Commercial and Industrial 
    interests will get fed up from lack of workers and move out.
    
    
    I've noticed a lot of empty zones in the city. I suspect it's a problem with 
    the infrastructure. I suggest you take a close look at all underdeveloped 
    areas and make sure they are getting power and water.
    
    And don't forget about transportation. Zones won't develop without roads or 
    mass transit lines. If you see zones that develop around the edges but not in 
    the center, it's almost always a transportation problem -- when Sims can't 
    get to the center of a zone, that area won't develop. 
    
    When you make some improvements to the infrastructure, these undeveloped 
    zones should start to grow.
    
    
    The radiation leak caused by the nuclear explosion is a problem for which, 
    unfortunately, there is no immediate solution. No Sim is allowed to re-enter 
    the contaminated zone for many years to come. This area will therefore remain 
    empty. 
    
    Development of any sort is impossible in a radioactive area. My advice is to 
    rezone and rebuild in a safer area of the city.
    
    
    Land prices in our Industrial zones have skyrocketed. Potential companies 
    take one look at the prices and decide that %YOURCITY% is far too expensive 
    to move into. That's why some of our Industrial zones aren't developing. 
    
    I recommend that you rezone some of the undeveloped Industrial zones to 
    Commercial. That should help those areas to develop.
    
    
    Reports show that much of the city is valued quite low. I've heard more than 
    one Sim refer to %YOURCITY% as a slummy place to live. While some low valued 
    land is fine for any city, you might want to try to bolster up land prices. 
    
    I suggest you take steps to reduce crime and pollution, and do what you can 
    to improve health and education levels. That should help bring in new 
    residents and, in turn, raise land values.
    
    No matter what you do, land that surrounds certain unpleasant buildings like 
    incinerators or jails will never rise much. If you're going to keep these 
    things in the city, at least try to keep them out of the way of residents.
    
    
    We're becoming a big city, Mayor. I just got word that construction of the 
    first medium density Commercial building has been completed. I wouldn't be 
    surprised to see more Commercial developments follow. 
    
    Just a reminder: land value affects the type of building that will be built 
    in a zone. As land value changes, the buildings will be replaced. 
    
    Keep your eye on the skyline -- taller buildings means steeper prices. By 
    keeping the area free from crime and pollution, and encouraging Commercial 
    demand, you can help push up land values.
    
    
    It's quite impressive that our city can support a high-density Commercial 
    building. In case you hadn't noticed, the first of these tall Commerical 
    developments has recently been built. I hope our city can support many more. 
    Keep this area of town booming by making it an even nicer place to do 
    business. See that it has adequate police and fire coverage, and that 
    pollution and garbage are kept to a minimum. 
    
    You might even want to zone some more high-density Commercial near it.
    
    
    Did you know you could encourage farmers to grow crops? You can! Just zone 
    large areas of low density industrial areas on the outskirts of the city. 
    Land values are still low enough that farms just might develop.
    
    You've zoned for landfill, but it looks like you've neglected to build a road 
    to it. The landfill is useless if garbage trucks can't get there. 
    
    I suggest you build a complete, unobstructed means of transportation so 
    trucks can get from the city to the landfill.
    
    
    We have a landfill that is completely full. Garbage trucks are being turned 
    away. 
    
    If you intend to continue using landfill space to dispose of garbage, you'd 
    better enlarge it soon, or build a new landfill somewhere else in the city.
    
    
    There have been some complaints that the seaport you zoned is not developing. 
    Let me go over the basics of seaports for you. 
    
    In order to develop properly, seaports must be large, they need to be 
    powered, and they need to be near a road or other form of transportation. I 
    shouldn't need to tell you that seaports must be located near the coastline.
    
    
    It saddens me to inform you that a local seaport has been abandoned. The 
    situation was inevitable. In its location, ships from neighboring cities were 
    unable to reach it. 
    
    If you want a seaport to develop, you must put it on a seacoast or a river 
    that has easy access by water to a neighbor.
    
    
    Our population has dipped. Sims are moving out because they can't find work. 
    This is a shame, since many prominent companies are vying for land in 
    %YOURCITY%, and these companies would bring jobs to the city. There's just no 
    place to build new factories or stores.
    
    I suggest you set up more Industrial and Commercial zones so that new 
    companies can move in. If you act quickly, maybe we can bring back some of 
    the Sims we've lost...
    
    
    We could hardly praise you more for keeping the industry in %YOURCITY% 
    producing day and night, but there's still one area where we need your 
    leadership: exports. Those manufactured goods are waiting in warehouses for 
    new links to outside markets.
    
    Let's keep our profits on track. Build rail connection to all our neighbors. 
    That way we won't miss any markets for our manufactured goods.
    
    
    The UFO attack is over, thank heavens.
    
    Damage was more extensive than it might have been, because you failed to warn 
    your Sims that such an attack was imminent. %X% buildings were destroyed at a 
    cost of %Y%.
    
    I suggest you repair the damaged infrastructure immediately. Next time an 
    emergency arises, use the Emergency Warning Siren to warn your trusting 
    population.
    
    
    The UFO attack is over, thank heavens. 
    
    Damage was more extensive than it might have been, because you used the 
    Emergency Warning Siren so many times when there was no emergency that the 
    Sims stopped believing it. %X% buildings were destroyed at a cost of %Y%.
    
    I suggest you begin repairs to the damaged infrastructure immediately. Be 
    careful to only use the Warning Siren when there is truly an emergency.
    
    
    The recent tornado was highly destructive. %X% buildings were damaged or 
    destroyed, at a cost of %Y%. 
    
    Though you attempted to issue a timely Emergency Warning, most Sims had 
    stopped listening to the Warning Siren after so many false alarms. As a 
    result they were caught unprepared, and the lives of many were thrown into 
    turmoil.
    
    I suggest that you only send out warnings when there is a real emergency to 
    warn about. For the time being, you should make necessary repairs to 
    infrastructure damaged by the disaster.
    
    
    The entire city is mystified by your action in warning of an emergency when 
    there was no real emergency going on. Some Sims were driven to panic, 
    unnecessarily. All had their lives disrupted as they fled to shelter, for no 
    good reason.
    
    The Emergency Warning Siren was put in place at considerable cost to serve a 
    serious purpose. Too many false alarms and it will be rendered useless, since 
    the Sims will stop paying attention to it. Be warned, Mayor.
    
    
    Have you looked around the city lately? Garbage is piling up in our streets. 
    It isn't pretty. 
    
    You've got several options. You could zone more landfill space, build 
    incinerators, or make a deal with a neighboring city to export our trash. 
    
    But do something quickly. Last year a town outside %ANYNEIGHBOR% was overrun 
    with garbage. The Mayor simply ignored the problem. Soon the whole town was 
    sick. I don't want that to happen here in %YOURCITY%.
    
    
    Trash, trash everywhere. It's a disgrace to %YOURCITY%'s good name. 
    
    You can get rid of this accumulated muck if you zone more landfills or build 
    incinerators. In the future, watch for trash export deals -- it might be 
    worth the cost to ship our garbage to a neighbor.
    
    And don't forget about recycling -- it can help to reduce the amount of 
    garbage our city produces. Unfortunately, it will do nothing to clean up the 
    current mess.
    
    
    Our "little" garbage problem has exploded into a real mess. The garbage in 
    the streets is an eyesore, not to mention a health hazard.
    
    Recycling Centers, even coupled with the Trash Presort Ordinance won't make a 
    dent in the accumulated garbage -- they only help reduce the amount of new 
    garbage produced.
    
    What we need is more landfills or incinerators, or a deal to export garbage 
    to a neighbor.
    
    
    I always thought the future was going to be bright and clean. But here we are 
    in %YEAR% and we've got garbage piling up in our streets. 
    
    This city must take responsibility for disposing of its own waste. You could 
    build a Waste-to-Energy incinerator, rely on the old fashioned methods of 
    incineration, or even build more landfills. 
    
    After you find a way to deal with the trash heaps, make sure that our 
    recycling efforts are as good as they can be. The less we produce, the less 
    we have to dispose of.
    
    
    Congratulations Mayor %YOURNAME%! You've cleaned up the garbage problem. 
    
    The Sims of this city are so thrilled to have sparkling streets again, 
    they've planned a parade in your honor. 
    
    Of course, no confetti will be thrown -- that would just mess up the streets 
    again.
    
    
    I'm pleased to report that our city has seen a dramatic improvement in water 
    quality. Thanks to your campaign against polluting industries, Sims in 
    %YOURCITY% can enjoy sweet, crystal-clear water again.
    
    
    We're still able to handle all the trash we produce, but just barely. We need 
    to increase our capacity to process garbage before the city gets any larger. 
    I suggest you zone some more landfills or build an incinerator.
    
    It may not seem like a high priority right now, but if we don't increase our 
    capacity to process garbage, we'll have a mountainous problem on our hands.
    
    
    Sims are up in arms about the garbage problem, and I don't blame them. We've 
    got garbage in our streets and we continue to import our neighbor's junk. You 
    can't allow our children to play in trash heaps -- you've got to do 
    something. 
    
    The quickest solution would be to terminate the import garbage deal we have 
    with %NEIGHBOR%. There might be a penalty for canceling, but I think it would 
    be worth the cost to free us from excess garbage. Or at least build more 
    disposal facilities -- we've got to get rid of this mess. 
    
    Think about it. Do we really want to be the dumping grounds for our neighbor?
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, I'm worried that we don't have any excess garbage capacity. 
    If the quantity of trash we import increases, there won't be any way to deal 
    with it. The streets of %YOURCITY% will be lined with garbage, and it won't 
    even be our own. 
    
    The next time the opportunity arises, I'd strongly consider canceling the 
    garbage import deal. Or build some more facilities now to prepare for 
    importing more garbage.
    
    
    With funding at higher levels than we're used to, our city has the lowest 
    crime rate in SimNation. 
    
    Yes, I understand that there have been allegations of police oppression 
    because we started jailing people for putting chewing gum under their chairs 
    and singing off-key, but all law-breakers deserve to be punished. In my 
    opinion, this city is a better place to live now that we've gotten the 
    fashion criminals off the streets. 
    
    Thanks for giving us enough money to do the best job possible.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, our city has grown to the point where it requires a fire 
    station. I recommend you build one immediately. 
    
    Ideally, the fire station should be close to structures at risk of fire. 
    Firefighters can put out fires that occur within the station's normal 
    district without your intervention. However, if a fire should break out 
    outside the fire station district, you can dispatch fire trucks to the blaze.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you're building up quite an impressive new city. Might have 
    a utilities problem though.
    
    I see you've placed a power plant a fair distance from your zones. Any zone 
    that is not located close to a power plant must be connected to the plant 
    with power lines. Zones that are not wired or are not close to a plant will 
    not receive power. 
    
    Power lines are easy to construct. I have a Briefing on the subject if you'd 
    like more information.
    
    
    I have an urgent matter to discuss with you. 
    
    On a routine examination of our power facilities, I noticed a nuclear power 
    plant getting dangerously close to the end of its useful life. If we sit back 
    and do nothing, it is likely the plant will explode and cause a radiation 
    disaster.
    
    Luckily, we've caught it in time and are not destined to disaster. If you 
    bulldoze the aging plant soon, we can remove all danger of explosion. 
    
    You'll need to replace the plant with another power source. Nuclear is okay 
    as long as we keep a close eye on it.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, I've noticed that a lot of our power plants are getting on 
    in years. As they age, these plants slowly lose capacity. If we keep pushing 
    them to generate power, they will explode. 
    
    Why don't you take a few minutes to visit the plants and check their stats? I 
    might even suggest you bulldoze the very old plants and replace them with new 
    models that can generate more power.
    
    
    We're not a young city anymore and all our water facilities are starting to 
    show signs of age. The older ones just can't pump with the same vigor they 
    had when they were new. 
    
    I suggest you check the age of each of our water pumps and be prepared to 
    start replacing them.
    
    
    I've been going over the reports on incinerator capacity and it appears that 
    our trash disposal equipment is getting old. Capacity has dropped 
    dramatically and it won't be long before some of our metal monsters turn into 
    piles of rusty rubble. 
    
    You might check the statistics for each of our incinerators to see their 
    exact age. If you like, you could bulldoze the oldest ones before they lose 
    more capacity and replace them with new models. 
    
    Incinerator capacity may go down, but garbage production never, ever stops.
    
    
    Did you know that only three things matter when it comes real estate? 
    Location, 
    
    Location, Location.
    
    It is very unwise to place polluting or crime-ridden buildings near 
    Residential neighborhoods. No Sims want to live there anymore and the land 
    value drops. 
    
    I see you have made some mistakes on this account. Your careless placement of 
    certain undesireable structures has made certain areas of the city virutally 
    worthless. You may want to remove the offending buildings and see if you can 
    bolster up land values again.
    
    
    Mayor, you've kept education funding so low for so long that our college 
    professors have called a strike. They refuse to return to work until you 
    raise funding to an adequate level. I surmise what they would call adequate, 
    you might call excessive. 
    
    Nonetheless, you must get the professors back in the the classrooms so that 
    our college students can continue their higher education. You owe it to the 
    Sims to raise education funding.
    
    
    Your Honor, we have managed through the year with a balanced budget. Our 
    revenue more than covers our expenses. However, it is important that we 
    continue to build up our reserves. Disasters and emergencies could be just 
    ahead. 
    
    Congratulations on an excellent year, but keep a wary eye on your spending 
    policies.
    
    
    Glad to meet you, Mayor %YOURNAME%. I'm Oddman -- Gus Oddman. I see you're 
    starting to build your city and thought I'd remind you about the importance 
    of electric power. Without a source of power, your city will never develop. 
    
    I recommend you construct a power plant immediately. If you build one close 
    to your zones, they'll get power automatically. You can build a power plant 
    far away if you like -- but you'll need to lay power lines to connect the 
    power plant to your zones that need power. 
    
    If you need more help understanding how power works, I have several briefings 
    in my files that could help you.
    
    
    Let me introduce myself. I'm Constance Lee, your City Planning advisor. 
    
    I have some advice for you right off -- start zoning. You must designate 
    zones in the city to let the Sims know where they can build. 
    
    If you lay down zones and make sure they have power and transportation, it 
    won't be long before you'll see Sims construct new houses and businesses 
    right before your eyes! 
    
    The city will never start to develop until you have at least one Industrial 
    zone and one Residential zone, so place them first. Later you can add more 
    zones of all types.
    
    If you need help placing zones, read the briefing in my files called 
    "Understanding Zones."
    
    
    These new elevated highways are the best surprise I've had since mother waxed 
    her mustache. 
    
    You know, I've always preferred driving over other forms of transporation 
    methods, and with these new highways I can drive farther and faster. I 
    suspect they'll help to increase commerce from neighboring cities. 
    
    I've heard that highways can be built to cross over existing roads, though 
    you need to construct an on-ramp if you want to be able to get onto the 
    highway from the road.
    
    
    Hello, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Moe Biehl is my name, and I'm very pleased to make 
    your acquaintance. 
    
    I don't mean to start off making too many suggestions, but you need to build 
    some roads. Without roads or rail the city will never develop. Sims need a 
    way to get around town is all. 
    
    Make sure the roads you build connect all the different types of zones. It 
    might be nice to build a road around the borders of each zone too. 
    
    If you need help, check my files. I have a briefing called "Building A 
    Transportation System" that should give you a few tips.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you've been doing a great job managing mass transit in 
    %YOURCITY%. It's rare for a city to see such high ridership numbers. 
    
    Looks as if your instincts were correct: when you give the Sims an efficient 
    mass transit system, they'll give up their cars and let the rail system take 
    them where they want to go. 
    
    By the way, the free espresso in the club car is a big hit with commuters.
    
    
    Not many Sims are using our mass transit system, and I can't blame them. 
    Considering the mess our system is in, driving is still a whole lot easier 
    than using the rail lines. 
    
    Our mass transit lines should parallel highly-traveled roads or offer new 
    routes that connect places where Sims want to go. Also, transit stops should 
    be built in convenient locations -- Sims don't use some of our existing 
    stations because they're too far to walk to. 
    
    As a last resort, you might consider tearing down stations and lines that 
    aren't working -- they cost money whether Sims use 'em or not.
    
    
    A nuclear power plant has just exploded! Radiation is spreading and I have 
    declared the immediate area off-limits to all but properly equipped 
    personnel. Unfortunately, this area will remain contaminated and unusable for 
    many years to come. 
    
    Do not allow another tragedy like this to ever happen again.
    
    
    What a tragic series of events! We were hit hard, and the city took quite a 
    bit of damage. I estimate we lost %X% buildings at a total cost of %Y%. 
    
    Even in the face of adversity, we must move forward. There's a lot of clean-
    up to be done and I suggest we start restorations immediately.
    
    
    The Police Budget determines how much money each police station receives to 
    pay for yearly expenses such as officer's salaries, crime-fighting equipment, 
    and building maintenance. The more police stations we build, the more our 
    city will pay for police protection. 
    
    Currently, %YOURCITY% does not have any police stations, so our cost is zero. 
    Our level of police protection is zero, too. For the sake of our citizens, I 
    hope this changes very soon.
    
    
    As Mayor, you set the Fire Budget, deciding how much of our city treasury to 
    spend on fire station operations. Money pays for firefighter's salaries, fire 
    trucks and equipment, and building maintenance.
    
    Currently, we don't have any fire stations, so we have no annual costs. The 
    more fire stations we build, the more we'll pay each year for fire 
    protection. 
    
    Hmmm, no fire stations. We are flirting with danger.
    
    
    As Mayor, you set the Healthcare Budget to determine how much money is spent 
    to support each of the city's hospitals. The more hospitals built, the higher 
    the annual expense. Funds are used to pay for things such as doctor's 
    salaries, medical equipment, and building maintenance. 
    
    Right now %YOURCITY% doesn't have any hospitals, so the city pays nothing for 
    healthcare. As the population grows, you'll have to give some thought to 
    building hospitals.
    
    
    The Road Budget sets an amount of money to be spent for the upkeep of all the 
    roads in the city. As Mayor, you have the power to decide when to increase or 
    decrease the budget amount. 
    
    Right now %YOURCITY% doesn't have any roads, so there is no cost for this 
    budget item. When (or if) you decide to build roads, the total maintenance 
    cost will rise with the number of paved roads.
    
    
    The Mass Transit Budget determines how much money is spent to operate city 
    busses, rails, and subways. Funds are used to pay for expenses such as 
    salaries for conductors and bus drivers, and for upkeep of equipment. The 
    more mass transit lines we build, the more our city will pay for public 
    transportation. 
    
    Currently, %YOURCITY% does not have any mass transit, so our cost is zero. 
    There will come a time when the city will require public transportation, and 
    it may be sooner than you think.
    
    
    Your Honor, we are out of cash but I am neither surprised, nor overly 
    concerned. Like most young cities, %YOURCITY% will need to use borrowed funds 
    to give the city a strong start. 
    
    I recommend you take out several loans to cover our deficit and provide cash 
    reserves to pay for new construction and zoning. There is a briefing in my 
    files called "Loans" if you need more information. 
    
    You must manage these borrowed funds wisely, using it to help the city grow, 
    so we can generate enough income to pay back the loans.
    
    
    As Mayor, you set the Education Budget, deciding how much of our city 
    treasury should be spent on schools and colleges. They need operating funds 
    to pay for teacher's salaries, learning materials, and building maintenance. 
    Of course, the more schools and colleges we build, the more we'll pay each 
    year for education. 
    
    Currently, we don't have any schools or colleges in the city, so our 
    education costs are zero. 
    
    No schools, Mayor? Tsk, tsk!
    
    
    Welcome, Your Honor. I am Mortimer Green, your Financial Advisor. It's my job 
    to keep a close eye on the treasury and the tax rates. 
    
    Building and running a city is very costly. Especially now, before the city 
    starts collecting tax revenues, you may run out of cash before you've finish 
    setting up the essentials of a new city. Without the essentials -- zones, 
    transportation, and power -- your city will never grow. 
    
    You can take out a loan whenever you need more money. Find out how loans work 
    by reading the briefing called "Loans" -- it's in my files.
    
    
    Golly Mayor, I feel so foolish. The news I was going to tell you is already 
    out of date. Sorry!
    
    
    I'm deeply sorry for the interruption. The news I had for you is out of date. 
    I'll try not to let it happen again.
    
    
    Excuse me for disturbing you, your Honor. The news I was going to discuss 
    with you is out of date.
    
    
    The news I was going to share with you? It's out of date. My apologies. I'll 
    let you get back to work.
    
    
    Sorry for interrupting you. The news I was going to share with you is out of 
    date.
    
    
    Sorry about that, Mayor. My news is out of date. Guess I'm just not as fast 
    as I used to be.
    
    
    I'm terribly embarassed to have called for you unnecessarily. The news I was 
    going to share is out of date.
    
    
    I noticed that our fire budget is above average and I am very pleased.  We 
    should be proud to be above average. 
    
    Finally I'll have enough money to buy state-of-the-art equipment and give my 
    firefighters the bonuses they deserve. 
    
    
    Don't even think about reducing the budget. The department needs this money.
    
    
    Our healthcare budget is in good shape, but healthcare in the city is still 
    suffering. 
    
    We simply don't have enough hospitals to serve our growing population. Sims 
    are going without the healthcare they need and deserve. 
    
    Don't reduce the funding level -- but build more hospitals soon, before the 
    healthcare problem gets completely out of hand.
    
    
    Don't think I am unappreciative of the high budget you've given our police 
    department. But the truth is no amount of money can reduce our crime level 
    unless we have more police stations. 
    
    Please build more police stations and keep funding where it is.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, our school system could really use more money. We have 
    plenty of schools, but they lack modern equipment and the brightest teachers. 
    School buildings have not been maintained and are becoming unsafe. Parents 
    and teachers want to know why you aren't spending more money on education. I 
    have nothing to tell them.
    
    I urge you to increase the city's education budget.
    
    
    The schools we have are well-funded, but the truth is we need more schools. 
    The terrible overcrowding in our classrooms is an embarrassment. I fear Sims 
    won't want to move here if our city can't guarantee their children will have 
    desks to sit in. 
    
    Keep the budget level high, but build more schools. Please!
    
    
    Great news, Mayor %YOURNAME%!
    
    Our college system has been ranked among the best in SimNation. Our graduates 
    shine brighter than my gold tooth! 
    
    We owe this achievement to your decision to keep the education budget above 
    average. I hope you never think about cutting education funding.
    
    
    When it comes to education, nothing less than top-notch will do. That's why 
    I've come to you today. 
    
    A report shows that our college system has plenty of room for improvement. 
    
    It's a good time to raise education funding so that our colleges will attract 
    the best and the brightest.
    
    
    Our education budget is ridiculous! We don't have nearly enough money to 
    provide a quality education to our college students. It pains me to see 
    students graduating who can't even read their diplomas. 
    
    You must raise the education budget so we can raise the quality of our 
    colleges.
    
    
    Yes, there is no dispute that the education budget is at an adequate level. 
    The reason that our college system is receiving low grades is that we have 
    not built enough colleges to serve our population. Many Sims want to go to 
    college but can't because we don't have enough classrooms. 
    
    Don't lower the education budget -- build more colleges. Each new college 
    will increase the total cost of education, but frankly, we can't let things 
    stay as they are.
    
    
    Urgent news, Mayor %YOURNAME%.
    
    I've just received word that the professors who teach in our city colleges 
    are threatening to walk off the job unless you raise the education budget. 
    They are fed up with pitiful salaries and unsafe facilities. If they are 
    forced to strike, they claim it will be on behalf of the college students who 
    are the true victims of the inadequate budget.
    
    You'd better raise funding soon.

    Coal Plants are a common and economical source of electricity, but generate 
    large amounts of pollution.  Site them as far as possible from residential 
    areas.
    
    Oil Power Plants are slightly cleaner than Coal Power Plants and provide a 
    little more power.  They also cost a lot more.
    
    Natural gas is much cleaner than coal, but also much more expensive.  You 
    will need two of these Gas Plants to produce as much power as one Coal Plant.
    
    Wind Power is very clean, but you will need hundreds of them to power even a 
    small-sized city.  They can only reach their potential power output capacity 
    when placed on the tops of hills.
    
    Solar power is very clean, but on the expensive side. You will need many of 
    these plants to power a medium-sized city.
    
    Nuclear power is clean and inexpensive, if you can afford the initial 
    investment.  Unfortunately, there is always the risk of a deadly meltdown. 
    Keep an eye on power usage.
    
    Satellites beam down concentrated solar radiation.  Microwave Power doesn't 
    provide as much power as a Nuclear Plant, and is much more expensive, but 
    there is no danger of a meltdown.
    
    Tapping the same energy the sun uses, Fusion Plants create large amounts of 
    energy with none of the radiation danger of Nuclear Plants. However, they are 
    the most expensive plant available.
    
    Select A Water Building
    
    Water Towers are cheaper and smaller-capacity versions of Pumping Stations.  
    They pump the same amount of water no matter where they are placed.
    
    Pumping Stations provide water to your thirsty Sims.  These stations must be 
    placed next to a source of fresh water to function.
    
    Desalinization Plants allow you to turn unusable sea water into clean, 
    drinkable fresh water. They do no good unless placed right next to a body of 
    salt water.
    
    Water Treatment Plants purify polluted water.  Make sure to connect these 
    plants to your pipe system.
    
    Rewards & Opportunities
    
    The citizens of your city have rewarded you with a Mayoral Mansion.  Don't 
    let it go to your head.
    
    Your city has grown and the citizens have approved a building to house city 
    offices.   Finally, no more city council meetings in your garage.
    
    The judges, officers, clerks and other employees of the courthouse will 
    increase the commercial importance of your city.  Don't worry, the crowds of 
    lawyers moving to town shouldn't lower property values.
    
    This park, though small as such parks go, celebrates the geologic and 
    biospheric riches of the region.  It will also create a place for residents 
    and tourists to commune with nature.
    
    The citizens of your growing city have commemorated you with a statue.  As 
    they say, there is no accounting for taste.
    
    This could aid shipping traffic to and from our seaport, and serve as a 
    "Photo Moment" for tourists.
    
    A recreational outlet for the local elite, this resort will also draw 
    visitors from all around the region.
    
    A military base can change your city, with its influx of employees and their 
    families.  It will boost commerce, but add pressure to your environment and 
    police.
    
    This center will provide jobs for well-educated researchers and boost 
    commercial traffic.  Discoveries made here could benefit the entire world, 
    and make your city famous.
    
    Stock up on pocket protectors.  The brain power attracted by this Laboratory 
    will provide jobs and increase the demand for commercial services.   Check in 
    from time to time to see what Next Big Thing they are working on.
    
    This Performing Arts Center acts as a magnet for the well-educated and well-
    heeled, and can be used to revitalize declining downtown areas.
    
    A major university marks your city as a regional center for advanced 
    thinking, and provides a home for oddball characters of every description.
    
    A LlamaLand theme park featuring Lloyd Llama, Rickey Rodent and friends will 
    help give your city the reputation of a fun place to visit.
    
    This is the other half of the military-industrial complex.  Your city will 
    contribute to the safety of the planet by building new ways to blow things 
    up.  This will be great for the city commercial sector.
    
    With the addition of a stock exchange, your city breaks into the global 
    economic big time.  Jobs will be generated for brokers, traders and all their 
    support staff, along with a big boost in demand for commercial services.
    
    The Spaceport will open new worlds of travel to your city.  Check in from 
    time to time to see where the rockets are heading next.
    
    Your city is large enough to support Arcologies.  These large, self-
    contained, vertical cities-within-a-city can house, employ and service 
    thousands of Sims.
    
    This factory turns surplus military nerve gas and other toxic waste into such 
    harmless products as underarm deodorant.  It boosts your treasury and 
    provides jobs.  The downside is that no one wants to live anywhere near such 
    a polluting eyesore.

    SimNation's most hardened criminals must be incarcerated somewhere.  This 
    maximum-security facility will bring in revenue, but no one will want to live 
    nearby.

    This regional retail center will bring money into your city, but Ma and Pa 
    shops on Main St. may suffer.

    Let it ride! Your city treasury won't go bust with the jackpot in revenue 
    generated by a casino.  The neighbors may complain, however, about the crime 
    it generates and the effect on the value of their land.

    Incinerators take care of large amounts of garbage, but much of the trash 
    they burn returns to the environment as air pollution. Land values drop 
    sharply in the vicinity of an incinerator. They require road or rail access.
    
    Recycling Centers reduce the amount of garbage that must be buried or 
    incinerated.  Despite their positive image and function, they still handle 
    garbage, so few Sims will want to live next door.
    
    This modern trash-burning facility differs from older versions. It disposes 
    of more trash and produces a bit less air pollution. The energy released is 
    converted to electric power that can help to power the city.

    With this new baseball stadium, your city should be able to attract a major 
    league team and put itself on the national map of big-time sports.  In the 
    off season it can be used for rock music concerts and llama polo matches.
    
    Your meager mansion is a slight to you and your citizenry. Your greatness is 
    known SimHither and SimYon, and your dwelling should reflect your regal 
    stature. From henceforth, damsels will anoint you with balms, knights will 
    leap the moat as your whims dictate, and the royal buffet will spill forth 
    its bounties.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    SFS is indeed well-known, notorious, you might say. If you accept this offer, 
    place the plant far away from residents. But expect more pollution and 
    complaints.
    
    The petitioner makes a valid point. If you proceed with plans to build that 
    plant, not only will we be contaminating our environment, we'll have a public 
    relations nightmare on our hands.
    
    Yes, the plant would bring money into the city, but I think we should look 
    for a financial option that is less controversial.
    
    Ms. Glower's assessment of the risk is a bit exaggerated, but it is founded 
    on understandable fears. Either we get used to this public relations thorn-
    in-the-side, or we find another source of funds.
    
    I firmly believe that medical treatment should only be administered by 
    healthcare professionals. Though this ordinance may improve the life 
    expectancy of Sims in our city, I'd save our scarce simoleons for measures 
    that have a greater citywide benefit.
    
    I am completely opposed to repealing this ordinance. It has helped save lives 
    and can save many more.  The only thing "dippy" is putting simoleons ahead of 
    your Sims' health.
    
    It's proven that the use of smoke detectors lowers flammability levels in the 
    city. Less flammability means fewer fires will break out.
    
    Don't quibble over costs. Pass the Mandatory Smoke Detector Ordinance and 
    you'll be saving lives.
    
    I strongly support this ordinance. The police can better serve %YOURCITY% 
    when the neighborhood becomes involved in its own affairs. It's money well 
    spent.
    
    The merits of this ordinance are highly questionable. Not all teenagers are 
    criminals as the petitioner implies. I believe parents, not the city, should 
    be responsible for controlling the small group of underage trouble-makers. It 
    is unreasonable to ask the police force to increase their workload, to say 
    nothing of increasing costs to the city.
    
    I am completely against repealing this ordinance. There is no question that 
    crime is down and education levels are up because of it. To repeal it would 
    be absurd. I suggest you consider the source of opposition to it.
    
    With all due respect to these culture vultures, I say piff and twaddle to 
    them. Human detritus indeed! Gamblers voluntarily put money into the 
    %YOURCITY% coffers by boosting our Commercial sector. And though I can't 
    explain it, gambling seems to make the vast majority of Sims happy. I say 
    leave this ordinance in place.
    
    There's nothing wrong with a little harmless fun, and legalized gambling is 
    just that. While I don't believe gambling will make anyone smarter, this 
    ordinance will perk up your Sims and make the whole city feel a little bit 
    better.
    
    How could anyone be against improving the literacy of our children? This 
    ordinance will help insure the future of %YOURCITY% through education.
    
    Public smoking is not just a nuisance, it lowers the health levels in the 
    city. The air belongs to all the Sims of this city, and we should do 
    everything we can to keep it clean.
    
    When a smoker lights up next to me, I am forced to smoke. It's that simple. 
    Sims should be free to ruin their health in the privacy of their own homes, 
    but no Sim has the right to inflict this filthy habit on their neighbors.
    
    Free clinics are a very positive step for this city. Every Sim, no matter how 
    poor, has the right to decent healthcare. Yes, the Free Clinics Ordinance 
    will be an expense for the city, but it's a cost I feel we can justify.
    Besides, there is evidence that the presence of free clinics raises land 
    values in the city.
    
    I've seen these youth programs work wonders in other cities. The Junior 
    Sports Ordinance has costs associated with it, but it also has benefits: 
    crime is reduced and education levels rise a bit.
    
    When I think of the children, this just seems like the right thing to do.
    
    I can't agree with this "watchdog" group at all. First of all, the uniforms 
    are donated by business all over the city. The small amount of money this 
    ordinance costs helps save money by preventing expensive police and crime 
    problems later on.
    
    This suggestion hardly comes from the greatest minds in town. I rather 
    suspect that these kids want the homeless off the sidewalks for easier 
    skateboarding. Still, it is a good idea, and you certainly owe it to your 
    Sims to provide safe shelter even to the least of them. The presence of these 
    clinics sometimes raises land value around them.
    
    Sure as my Aunt Betsy has warts, the Sims won't like carpooling. But if you 
    want to reduce traffic, this ordinance couldn't hurt.
    
    Between you, me and my aching bunions, I've never known a Sim that would walk 
    very far to get where they're going. Not just older Sims. Young ones too. So 
    this proposed shuttle service would benefit Sims of all ages. Shuttles can 
    take Sims to destinations a little farther away than they could reach on 
    foot.
    
    Now I'm not saying it's not worth the cost, but you should know that 
    operating a shuttle service can be rather pricey.
    
    Crossing guards are the best thing since sliced pepperoni. Sure, they may 
    increase traffic congestion a bit, but it's a small price to pay for the good 
    they do. If you put crossing guards in this city, you'll see Sim life 
    expectancy improve.
    
    Anything that extends life, I approve.
    
    Industry has been good to this city, and we should be good to them. Quid pro 
    quo as I always say. Repeal the Power Conservation ordinance and let's get 
    that monthly expense off our books.
    
    This ordinance is complete foolishness. Spending money to tell people to turn 
    off their lights, indeed. Perhaps we should tell them to breathe as well, or 
    eat. What nonsense. More regulation would do nothing but anger the Industrial 
    sector.
    
    This water conservation ordinance is unadulterated hogwash. Would the Green 
    Gaians have us drink from thimbles and bathe in tea cups to save water? They 
    don't want to waste water, but they certainly don't mind wasting money.
    
    This ordinance is no more restrictive than a similar ordinance I saw during a 
    recent trip to Gazoo's Mistake. Industry there did not "dry up" and ours 
    won't either. I'd say ignore this complaint.
    
    I saw a similar ordinance enacted during a conference in %ANYNEIGHBOR%. The 
    clean air it will help provide is certainly worth the small amount it will 
    cost.
    
    We may lose some heavy polluting industries as a result, but on balance this 
    is a good move. We should take steps to encourage less polluting industry to 
    replace those that are lost.
    
    I agree with this group, Mayor. Industry is important to our city, and this 
    ordinance is making it more difficult than necessary. It may even be scaring 
    away new industries. But without Clean Air restrictions, we risk returning to 
    higher air pollution levels.
    
    Who in their right mind could be against this ordinance? The health and 
    safety of all Sims depends on passing it. Not only that, but it will add to 
    %YOURCITY%'s aura and sense of civic pride.
    
    One wonders what effect the ordinance will have on existing nuclear 
    facilities. If it passes, they will have to go.
    
    Well, I can think of a reason. Nothing ruffles a Sim's feathers quite like 
    finding a parking ticket tucked under the windshield wiper.
    
    If I were you, I wouldn't be in a rush to enact this ordinance. Parking fines 
    will bring in money, but it can't be the only way for this city to earn a 
    simoleon or two.
    
    This complaint is specious. If the honorable representative didn't "plop the 
    car" in a place where it doesn't belong, there would be no parking fine. Were 
    it in my power, the fines would be even higher.
    
    When making your decision, remember that the Parking Fines Ordinance has 
    helped to increase traffic flow in and out of shopping areas, and has 
    encouraged Sims to use our mass transit system.
    
    I may be no oracle, Mayor %YOURNAME%, but it doesn't take a psychic to 
    predict the value of a Science Lab to our city's future. If you see a more 
    modern industries and a more educated workforce, you see the future is 
    brighter when you build that lab.
    
    This ordinance will greatly improve the efficiency of our recycling efforts. 
    It's a clean solution to a dirty problem.
    
    Requiring an emissions test for automobiles can clean up our city's act -- 
    and air. It may cause some backlash with Sims, but in my view, the benefit of 
    reduced air pollution far outweighs the cost of a few inconvenienced drivers.
    
    The petitioner is correct--leaf burning pollutes the air we breathe. That 
    reason alone is enough for me to favor the ordinance. I could even start a 
    campaign to  teach our Sims about alternative methods for leaf disposal.
    
    I haven't been this excited about anything in ages. A Geyser park right here 
    will preserve all our natural wonders and will attract tourists from all 
    over, which means more income for the city.
    
    A lighthouse may seem a small item in a large city, but I am strongly in 
    favor of accepting this offer.
    
    A country club is about the worst use of land one could imagine. Such a 
    waste! Let's keep our open space open, or perhaps use some of it for lower 
    income housing.
    
    Huge theme parks didn't exist when I was a kid, but if they had, I would have 
    loved them.
    
    These parks have a great appeal, even for adults. I can't see anything wrong 
    with the idea, except that the city has to pay for construction.
    
    I'm sure you've guessed that I have a healthy interest in a Medical Research 
    Center. Even if there is a small amount of pollution that comes from the 
    center, I consider the Medical Research Center to be a vaccination against 
    ignorance and disease. Build it and watch our education levels rise along 
    with our property values.
    
    It will cost money to build such a plant, and that alone sours me on the 
    idea.
    
    I must agree with the bowlers -- we need a stadium. It would make Sims, 
    including me, very happy.
    
    Casinos tend to attract unsavory types prone to petty crimes. Though the city 
    may benefit from the money a casino generates, odds are that a gambling 
    establishment will bring more trouble than it's worth. And remember, too, 
    that you will not be able to repeal the Legalized Gambling Ordinance as long 
    as the casino stands.
    
    I agree with the Chamber of Commerce that this city could benefit from a 
    spaceport. I'd say go for it, Mayor. I know you'll make the right decision.
    
    The Sims of this city deserve the finest healthcare available, and they have 
    not been getting it. Funding levels have been too low for too long; the 
    demands from healthcare workers are merely a wake-up call.
    
    If it were up to me, I'd raise funding immediately. The consequences of not 
    doing so could be quite dire.
    
    I see you have concerns about the cost of ending this strike. Put your 
    financial concerns aside and think about the risk this city faces if the 
    strike continues.
    
    Education is far too important to be ignored. The teachers' demands are 
    reasonable, and should be met.
    
    I agree whole-hearted with the petitioner. Stop this strike for the sake of 
    the children.
    
    While I commend you for keeping a tight watch on the city budget, it might be 
    prudent to loosen up a bit and give in to their demands.
    
    You have let this situation get out of hand, and have needlessly put Sim 
    lives in danger. My officers are not asking for any more than they are worth, 
    and you should comply with their demands. We cannot operate this city without 
    a police force.
    
    Mayor, you are playing with fire. Raise funding before someone gets burned.
    
    There is no good reason not to give these hard-working Sims what they're 
    asking for--and in my view they aren't asking for any more than they 
    rightfully deserve.
    
    You can't let this strike continue--it will bring the city to a halt. Give 
    the transit workers the raise they are asking for and get %YOURCITY% back on 
    track.
    
    Sounds reasonable to me. The price is fair, and it would be a quick way to 
    solve our water problems. But that doesn't mean I'm against expanding our own 
    water system--we'll need lots more water as the city grows.
    
    This is the fastest way for us to get water to the Sims, and they need it 
    fast. So I'd say take the deal. And whenever you give the word, I'll start 
    expansion of our own water system.
    
    The price seems a bit high, but we don't have a lot of options right now. The 
    Sims are demanding water and it's our job to provide it. I'd say take the 
    deal for now and but let's put a plan in motion to increase the water 
    production in %YOURCITY%. As soon as we're afloat, we can cancel the deal.
    
    Buying water spares us from having to maintain additional water 
    infrastructure in the city. But I think the new price is too high. Cancel the 
    deal now, while we can do so without penalty.
    
    The watchdog group has a point--we may be able to supply our own water if we 
    work at it. Seems strange that they are so concerned about spending money and 
    never mentioned that we must pay a hefty penalty to cancel the deal. Don't 
    throw these dogs a bone this time. Keep the deal in place.
    
    We need power, and buying is the quickest way to get it. The price sounds 
    fair, but I wouldn't be surprised if they raised the cost in the future. Even 
    so, I'd take the deal.
    
    It disturbs me to send off our hard-earned simoleons to pay for something we 
    could generate ourselves. Plus, the large penalty will make it difficult to 
    get out of the deal. I'd pass up this deal and save the cash.
    
    The new rate is high but is well within the range for SimNation. If you are 
    not happy with the new price of power, you can cancel this deal without 
    penalty, but we'll need to build more power plants right away.
    
    What's their beef? Buying power frees our city lands for other purposes, and 
    we have to pay for power one way or another. This deal is a safety net for 
    us, so we won't be caught in the dark as we grow.
    Besides, if we cancel now we have to pay the penalty.
    
    The price seems reasonable. Agree to the terms soon, before %NEIGHBOR% 
    withdraws the offer.
    
    We're generating excess power, and we can always use extra money. Take the 
    deal.
    
    City growth will raise demand for power here, just like it did in %NEIGHBOR%. 
    Don't be too hasty to make this deal. With such a high penalty, we'll be 
    locked in to the deal and may risk blackouts here at home. If it's income you 
    want, look for other sources.
    
    I must approve of any deal that brings much-needed cash into the city. Just 
    make sure that our excess water can flow unfettered up to the connection 
    point, or we'll be in trouble.
    
    This is a reasonable offer, and we need the money. Water may be the universal 
    solvent, but money solves a universe of problems.
    
    Take the deal. Just make sure all our excess water can flow freely to the 
    connection point.
    
    I bet you want to go for this deal, and it is a tempting offer. But water's a 
    pretty important asset, and I wouldn't want our city to run short. If you 
    accept this deal, we may have some construction to do to make sure all our 
    excess water can reach the connection point. And we'll be locked in by the 
    hefty penalty for reneging. I'm against the deal.
    
    I'd say take the opportunity to get out of this deal without paying the 
    penalty. And let's keep our water at home from now on.
    
    Even though the garbage will be dirty, the cash from this deal will be clean. 
    We are in dire need of money, so it would behoove you to accept this deal.
    
    The smell of money is always sweet. I say take the deal.
    
    Mayor, the Sims in our city already produce mountains of garbage, and I'm not 
    sure if we can handle more, especially over the long term. Can't you find 
    another source of funds?
    
    This is our chance to escape from the garbage deal without paying a penalty. 
    But by doing so, we will be giving up the monthly income. My inclination is 
    to accept the new terms and keep the cash coming in, but the decision is 
    yours to make.
    
    Trash has to go somewhere. As long as %NEIGHBOR% is willing to take it, we 
    don't have to pay to build facilities for local disposal. Exporting our trash 
    keeps the mess out of our city. And besides, the penalty for canceling is %Z% 
    -- that alone should be enough to stop you from terminating the deal.
    
    I'm happy to dump our garbage problem on some other city, despite the monthly 
    cost. But we must not get too dependent on this service -- we don't want to 
    be left holding the bag. The prudent course may be to continue to look for 
    ways to deal with the garbage we produce.
    
    This offer sounds almost too good to be true. It sure would solve our 
    immediate garbage problem. But let's not get too dependent on %NEIGHBOR%-- 
    the more trash we export, the more we pay.
    
    The new terms seem reasonable enough and the deal has worked out fairly well 
    so far.
    But we have been given the chance to get out of this deal without paying the 
    penalty fee. This opportunity may never arise again.
    
    A city has to pay for power one way or another. This looks like a reasonable 
    deal considering the current cost of power.
    
    Don't let this situation get any worse. There is still time to avert a 
    strike. Authorizing a pay raise for these hard-working public servants does 
    not mean you are giving in--it means you are being fair.
    
    Building a military base is a mixed blessing. It will provide increases in 
    our industry and commercial sectors, but it may have an adverse affect on the 
    quality of life in %YOURCITY%. You can expect a rise in crime and pollution, 
    and must accept the possibility of the base being closed some time in the 
    future. On the other hand, the revenue could be used to jumpstart our plans 
    for city expansion, allowing us to grow bigger, faster. And it's that 
    potential for growth that makes me say, "Forward, March!"
    
    Mr. Landgraab strikes me as being more concerned with his own interests than 
    the best interests of %YOURCITY%. I doubt a gigamall will boost our 
    Commercial sector, in fact I suspect it will greatly harm our city's small 
    businesses. And malls tend to create horrible traffic problems. The monthly 
    income would certainly be welcome, however.
    
    I can see two sides to this issue. The jobs a prison bring will boost our 
    population, and the monthly money grant is very tempting. But I don't know 
    how the Sims will react to having a prison in their city. Prisons pollute and 
    there is the risk that land values will fall. Sims won't like that one bit.
    
    I'm with them 100%! Health is far more important than beautiful yards. In 
    fact I prefer yards that look more natural. Though remember, this ban does 
    not apply just to residential areas -- farmers won't be happy when they learn 
    they can't use chemicals on their crops.
    
    Unfortunately, even with a strong police presence, we can't keep the area 
    around the casino crime-free. I must recommend you tear down the 
    establishment. You'll lose the monthly income it brings, but isn't the safety 
    of your Sims worth it?
    
    In my experience, job fairs usually return an eventual overall net benefit to 
    any city that holds them. Clean industry, such as electronics, is the wave of 
    the future, and the future is now. Don't quibble over costs -- enact this 
    ordinance.
    
    Your Honor, entertaining this thug's proposal is a disgrace.  As for my own 
    interests, I do not enjoy cement walking shoes, I will disavow any knowledge 
    of your meeting!
    
    Between you and me, we have no way to enforce this ordinance. Of course, as 
    long as Sims don't know that, it just might work. It will cost the city a few 
    simoleons in monthly adminstrative costs, but I'd give it a try.
    
    I agree with him -- water usage will probably decrease once the quantity is 
    metered. I've always thought water meters were a good idea. Fair is fair. 
    It's a little extra administrative work and a slight cost, but I'm in favor 
    of this ordinance...
    
    Imagine, farm fresh food for the Sims of %YOURCITY%. I agree completely with 
    the Gray Llamas, and advise you to pass this initiative.
    
    Seems only natural to bury old tires in the place where they've lived all 
    their lives -- the road. I like the recycling idea. It means less garbage in 
    the city, and cheaper road construction costs. They'll be a monthly cost to 
    all this, though, but it shouldn't be too much.
    
    She never mentioned the expense of the Tourist Promotion Ordinance, but with 
    advertising costs sky-high, we may be committing ourselves to an intolerable 
    financial burden. Also, tourists that toodle through town in their rented 
    cars may clog our streets. I'm not against civic pride, but I am against this 
    ordinance.
    
    To me, this sounds like just another petitioner trying to get their hands on 
    our city treasury. 
    Yes, this ordinance would clean up the water and reduce garbage levels, and 
    could lower crime by keeping youths out of trouble. It might even bring in 
    some cleaner industries. But it seems to me there are other more cost 
    efficient ways to accomplish the same thing.
    
    After careful study of this ordinance, I must recommend that you reject it. I 
    am skeptical that this bill, or anything else for that matter, will actually 
    reduce paperwork. On the surface, this ordinance appears to be another 
    unnecessary monthly expense.
    
    The opportunity to attract clean, telecommunications companies to this city 
    is worth ten times the cost of the ordinance.
    
    I've been composting for years. I think everyone should. Educating the Sims 
    will cost a little money, but it's worth it. There's nothing smelly about 
    composting or this ordinance, and I urge you to enact the measure.
    
    Studies conclude that industrial waste occurs because everyone wants products 
    that cause industrial waste. That makes everyone responsible, not just 
    industry. A flat fee would not be equitable for smaller companies that 
    generate relatively little industrial waste. This measure will bring lots of 
    money to the city, but is unfair to industry and may cause some companies to 
    leave.
    
    The current terms seem reasonable enough and the deal has worked out fairly 
    well so far. I'd keep the contract in place for now, if only to avoid paying 
    the hefty penalty fee.

    the hefty penalty fee.
    
    This is a decision you'll have to make alone.
    I must remind you, though, that we'll be assessed the penalty fee if you 
    cancel the deal now. It's probably best to leave the deal in place.
    If we cancel now, we'll be charged the penalty fee. I'd wait for a better 
    opportunity.

    the hefty penalty fee.
    
    Yes, this ordinance would give a distinct advantage to non-polluting 
    aerospace companies and will probably entice a few of them to locate here. 
    But offering such an advantage will cost the city a great deal of money. 
    Walkers do not pollute the air either. Should we therefore give tax 
    incentives to all walkers? I think not.
    
    Enacting this ordinance is a fantastic way to reduce air pollution, and to 
    show what a forward-thinking mayor you are. It's a new kind of recycling, and 
    you know I advocate all forms of recycling. Even though the reclaimed gas 
    won't make a significant impact on our power supply, it's still a good idea 
    and the monthly cost of the program should be minimal.
    
    Pollution is no longer just a city problem but a regional problem. Although 
    %YOURCITY% may lose some of our heavily polluting industries, they will be 
    replaced with cleaner, more efficient factories. I think this is a good 
    direction for our city.
    
    %YOURCITY% can ill afford to take chances regarding earthquake safety. No 
    amount of money is too much when protecting your Sims from nature's fury.
    
    We need to do everything we can to attract clean industries. Biotech firms 
    could lead our city toward an exciting future. 
    
    I believe the long-term benefits will outweigh the monthly cost of this 
    ordinance.
    
    This is foolish spending of money. The devices needed to control stairwell 
    lighting cost many, many times what they save in power consumption. I urge 
    you to reject this measure.
    
    Garbage in our city is a problem and this deal is a viable solution. Yes, it 
    is expensive to have our trash hauled away each month, but we will benefit 
    from less pollution. My inclination is to take the deal.
    
    If we commit to selling more power, we must make sure our power plants can 
    handle the extra capacity. All the plants are getting older you know.  
    
    We have been given the chance to get out of this deal without paying the 
    penalty fee. This opportunity may never arise again.
    
    If the city can afford to get by without the monthly income from the deal, 
    I'd say cancel it and keep our power at home.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you have single-handedly molded %YOURCITY% into a 
    successful and growing city. As a small token of our appreciation, the 
    council has unanimously agreed to build you a new home. Not that there's 
    anything wrong with your trailer, but a mayor of your caliber deserves 
    something special.
    
    Plans for your new house have been drawn up and await your final approval. 
    Construction will begin as soon as you choose a site.
    
    We Llamas are just torn up inside by the shortage of hospitals in %YOURCITY%. 
    How can such a progressive city as ours be lacking in such a basic civic 
    need? Our ailing citizens now have long waits just to obtain fundamental 
    hospital health services --shameful is too polite a word for it.
    
    Let's build some more hospitals before some horrible disaster magnifies this 
    shortage, and the world reviles us for our cruel oversight.
    
    The citizens of %YOURCITY% have overwhelmingly approved the construction of a 
    City Hall. Why? Because we've watched our fair city grow from a tiny village 
    to a thriving town. And we realized that the government of a growing 
    metropolis cannot operate out of the Mayor's house forever.
    
    Please choose a site for the new City Hall, so construction can begin.
    
    We are pleased to announce that %YOURCITY% has the ideal amount of hospital 
    coverage for a city of its size; all Sims who need healthcare can receive 
    treatment without waiting in long lines. Your careful planning and excellent 
    city management have allowed us to reach this balance. 
    
    In celebration of this achievement, fruit-flavored Mayor %YOURNAME% vitamins 
    have been manufactured and will be available for free in all city hospital 
    lobbies.
    
    It gives me great pleasure to announce that our city has an ideal number of 
    schools; classrooms are neither empty nor overcrowded. Due to your excellent 
    city management, %YOURCITY% can offer students the finest education available 
    in SimNation, and we aren't spending one simoleon more than we have to.
    
    In recognition of your achievement, Mrs. Gellman's third-grade class has 
    written a poem in your honor.
    
    Due to your outstanding abilities as mayor, the city council has voted to 
    commission a statue commemorating your steadfast leadership. It will be 
    created by a %YOURCITY% native, the world-renowned sculptor, Chip Chiseler.
    
    All you need to do is choose a site for the statue, and Chip can get started.
    
    Thanks to your leadership, %YOURCITY% is now considered one of the most 
    successful financial centers in the region. In recognition of this 
    achievement, the SimNational Securities Commission has selected our city as 
    the perfect home for a glorious new Stock Exchange, one that will be known 
    the world over. And you, Mayor %YOURNAME%, will have the honor of ringing the 
    opening bell.
    
    Construction of the Stock Exchange will begin as soon as you choose a site.
    
    We at S.A.F.E. are tired of living in a city where law-breakers run free. The 
    city needs jails. We're not just rattling the bars here. We're demanding that 
    you do something about it!
    
    Build some jails, Mayor, before %YOURCITY% becomes the Crime Capital of 
    SimNation!
    
    A city without hospitals is a frightening place to be, Mayor %YOURNAME%. How 
    can any citizen, old or young, feel right, if when they start to feel wrong, 
    there's nothing to be done for it? We've got to stay on top of diseases, 
    broken limbs and all the ailments that can beset a body over time, and we 
    can't do that without hospitals.
    
    A healthy population is a happy population -- build some hospitals before an 
    epidemic breaks out. Better safe than sick, we always say.
    
    C'mon Mayor %YOURNAME%, we've got folks coming home bruised and battered, but 
    not from work, just from their commute on the city trains. People are sitting 
    two to a seat, and then somebody's sitting on top of them. Some people can't 
    tell if it's their own hands in their pockets. The bottom line is that we 
    could use a whole bunch more trains.
    
    Let your Sims know they aren't cattle. Get those trains -- and %YOURCITY% -- 
    on track.
    
    Take a look out any city window, Mayor %YOURNAME%, and you'll see a frozen 
    landscape. It's not snow though--it's stopped, stalled or out-of-gas cars. It 
    seems like the entire city is just one stopped car, with its overheated 
    driver about to curse out the world. Let's put him out of his misery: put in 
    some bus stops now.
    
    There's so much to like about our town, but we'll never get a chance to enjoy 
    it if we can't get out of these cars and on with our lives. Save our streets 
    and our sanity--put some busses to work."
    
    One of my subsidiaries, Safety Flush Solutions, is a well-known provider of 
    toxic waste disposal services. We've just landed a big contract to convert 
    napalm, anthrax bacilli and nerve gas into underarm deodorant and other 
    harmless substances. We need a place to put our plant so we can provide this 
    essential service to SimNation.
    
    We offer %X% a month for permission to build a plant in your fair city.
    
    Once again the big corporate greedmongers think they have pulled the 
    contaminated wool over the eyes of the easygoing citizens of %YOURCITY%. Do 
    they think we don't recognize the dangers presented to our families with the 
    introduction of a toxic waste factory right here in our town? Do they think 
    we don't recognize the environmental folly of this facility?
    
    %YOURCITY% citizens proclaim in one loud, united voice, "Not in our 
    backyard!"
    
    I'm here with Kelly Glower, a local resident who has organized a protest of 
    the toxic waste factory. 
    
    "When I moved to %YOURCITY%," Ms. Glower told us, "I never imagined that I'd 
    end up living next to a toxic waste dump. As if things weren't bad enough 
    around here! The military designed that stuff to kill things you know. 
    Suppose it got loose? All the Sims here are in danger. For my peace of mind, 
    I demand that this plant be demolished immediately. Let them take their 
    deadly goo someplace else, just get it out of my backyard."
    
    Well, Mayor %YOURNAME%, are you going to take action on this?
    
    The news crew from Channel 12 drove around the city during rush hour to 
    experience first-hand the traffic jams that are enraging the locals. Rage is 
    right, these citizens are incensed at the traffic that is literally at a 
    standstill on some streets. Several roadside therapists have set up shop to 
    help calm the drivers, but they claim that therapy is not enough -- the city 
    must step in and improve the traffic flow.  
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, these Sims have been driven mad by the traffic. Won't you 
    cool this situation down?
    
    We've heard all kinds of palaver about how the city can't grow without 
    expanding the airport -- poppycock! %YOURCITY% is doing just fine with the 
    current airport so there's no compelling reason to enlarge it. Talk about an 
    unnecessary expense! This is a fly-by-night idea cooked up by the Commercial 
    sector for its own interest, and won't do the city one bit of good.
    
    Leave well enough alone, Mayor %YOURNAME%, and save the city money for 
    something with a little more lift to it.
    
    Remember the old days when %YOURCITY% was young, and there was barely a car 
    in sight? Our city is older now, but that doesn't mean that traffic tie-ups 
    are inevitable. Surely we're smart enough to come up with a balance, a way to 
    get around the city without exhaust fumes plugging our noses.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you could ease the congestion by building bus stops, or 
    rail and subway stations. Right now, the city is crying out for mercy, but 
    car engines are making so much noise you can barely hear it.
    
    Honking horns, crunched fenders, steaming tempers -- and that's just backing 
    out of our driveways. We've got traffic problems up the wazoo, Mayor 
    %YOURNAME%, and we need a solution fast. Sims are late for work, late for 
    appointments, and late for their rescheduled appointments. We think some new 
    subway stations would do the trick; it sure couldn't hurt.
    
    Why don't you build some new stations and get these Sims out of their 
    congested cars? Our tempers are like our radiators -- they've reached the 
    boiling point.
    
    Channel 12 has learned that Sims from outside the city avoid driving to 
    %YOURCITY% because the traffic here is so bad. Local drivers don't blame 
    them, saying that living with these traffic conditions day after day is so 
    frustrating that they fear some Sims may be driven to violent outbursts.  
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, don't let innocent drivers fall victim to road rage. Do 
    something about the traffic jams before a needless tragedy occurs.
    
    It may sound elementary, my dear Mayor, but a city needs an abundance of good 
    schools to cultivate an intelligent citizenry. Along with those schools, of 
    course, one needs adequate libraries and museums and all the other cultural 
    implements necessary to raise the well-rounded individual.
    
    I know you are a sympathetic person who recognizes the importance of quality 
    education in a cosmopolitan city such as %YOURCITY%. More schools, museums 
    and libraries, please?
    
    Something smells in this city, and it's got to do with the recent upsurge in 
    subway ridership. Certainly it's good that Sims are using our mass transit, 
    but when you can't shift your body on the trains without smacking someone, 
    things have gotten out of hand. The subways seem like a fire in an ant farm: 
    mad dashes for the exits, with bodies bouncing off, over and under one 
    another.
    
    It's time to authorize some new subway lines and build some new stations. Our 
    patience has been tried, and your office has been found guilty. We dare you 
    to have a nice day.
    
    Prunella Penny here, speaking for all the local business owners. Mayor, it's 
    high time you zone land for an airport in this city. The Commercial sector 
    simply can't grow without additional customers, and an airport will bring 
    them in by the planeful.
    
    %YOURCITY% Sims support the idea of an airport, and I've gathered the 
    signatures to prove it. I hope you don't mind my approach, but I felt we had 
    to do something to get this idea off the ground.
    
    Hey, Mayor %YOURNAME%, what are you going to do about the traffic mess?  Now, 
    I may not be the smartest guy in the world, but it doesn't take a rocket 
    scientist to figure out that more mass transit in this city would get some 
    cars off the street. If it were up to me, I'd build some train stations.
    
    It's hard for us working Sims to get to work with traffic as bad as it is.  
    What's a few more train stations to you? Nothing, I bet. But to someone like 
    me, it can mean the difference between keeping my job or losing it because I 
    was late too many times. So do this city, and me, a favor -- put in more 
    train stations, okay?
    
    Deer Maer,
    
    Kool, so chek it--wit all dis free tym we hav dare ar rajen partees dat go 
    all nite an all day long. Dat meenz wer fynale off da streetz an inna plase

    Cinseery,
    
    Da Teens of %YOURCITY%
    
    I always knew this backwater burg was, like, way uncool, but this is freakin' 
    pathetic! I was full on looking for a place to thrash my beater, but with, 
    like, no roads, I am totally stuck where I am. My homies can't even move into 
    town. Maybe I'll start speedballing while I wait for another way to unleash 
    my beast. 
    
    One good strip of pavement is all I'm sayin'. I gotta show my wheels, dude!
    
    I've just returned from a harrowing interview of Sims in the city, where a 
    virtual tidal wave of crime has washed over the citizens. The children there 
    are no longer allowed out of doors, for fear they will be kidnapped. Sims 
    such as the Scone family I spoke to this afternoon have literally barricaded 
    themselves into their homes to safeguard their belongings, and perhaps their 
    lives.
    
    Reports are coming in hourly from local Sims spotting sinister strangers 
    ducking down alleys and behind buildings. Viewers like you want to know when 
    the mayor plans to build more police stations!
    
    We've noticed a strong showing of cops on our streets -- and in our backyards 
    too. Why, just last week two officers raked up my leaves. And yesterday I saw 
    a very patient officer help a group of children get the knots out of their 
    shoelaces. 
    
    It's great that we have police around for things other than fighting crime, 
    since there's really not much crime to fight around here anymore. 
    
    Thanks for making this city a place where everyone can have a nice day -- 
    every day.
    
    The Green Gaians wish to call your attention to a little-known problem in 
    this city -- the underemployment of Sims. Though we commend you for helping 
    to create a highly-educated workforce, we condemn your failure to provide 
    modern, high-tech jobs for the Sims of %YOURCITY%. Extraordinary talent is 
    being wasted in low-level jobs at old, polluting factories. It is time for a 
    change. 
    
    Bring high-tech, non-polluting industries to this city and let Sims work to 
    their full potential in a cleaner environment.
    
    If you want to attract and keep a more educated sort of Sim, you simply must 
    create more high-tech jobs. We've all read the papers -- these people can 
    become millionaires overnight! 
    
    Let's provide this opportunity to the residents of %YOURCITY%, my dear Mayor, 
    and let our city reap the rewards that other cities already have. High-tech 
    and high society have more in common than you might think.
    
    Let's face it, we all like to shop -- it's the SimNation way -- but our city 
    doesn't have enough stores. My kids are always begging me to take them to 
    %ANYNEIGHBOR% so they can shop there. I guess shopping is pretty important to 
    today's youth, and even the wife and I like to check the price of 
    screwdrivers and chainsaws now and then.
    
    Mayor, I've worked hard to give my kids the things I never got. Now I think 
    it's time you  work to increase Commercial zoning. If my kids don't have a 
    place to shop, they might skateboard on your lawn instead.
    
    It's high time you do something about the shopping problem here in 
    %YOURCITY%. We need more shopping centers built, the sooner the better. Some 
    of us have to travel across town just to pick up our vitamins, and that's so 
    tiring, we need to buy twice as many just to have the energy to get back.  
    
    We ask that you zone some Commercial areas near the places where we live.
    
    %YOURCITY% is a land of opportunity, but Sims aren't moving in. Why? Because 
    you haven't zoned enough Residential areas. Sims won't move here unless they 
    have a place to live.
    
    Developers like me are champing at the bit to build houses for them, but 
    without Residential zones, I can't even build a treehouse. You've got to work 
    with me, Mayor. You do the zoning, I'll do the construction, and we'll all be 
    better off. Deal?
    
    Dude, you rock! We were totally gonna torch the old Weiss place, but we were 
    fully sure you'd have a way to kill the blaze. Check it -- with no hose 
    jockeys runnin' around, we are gonna have a field day! Course, if anything 
    should, like, catch fire it would fully be an act of some other group. We'd 
    deny everything. 
    
    I think I can dig this town.
    
    I suppose you didn't except to see Prunella Penny speaking out against taxes. 
    But here I am, telling you that Commercial taxes are too high. At first 
    glance, they may appear to be in the average range, but let's be honest, 
    Mayor %YOURNAME% -- this city is taking more money from business owners than 
    it needs. Look at the treasury for goodness sake. It's bulging with cash 
    gathered from an unduly harsh tax policy.  
    
    By lowering Commercial taxes you can stimulate business activity and actually 
    increase money flowing into the treasury. I urge you to lower taxes 
    immediately.
    
    Have you seen today's news? Several shoppers were robbed on our streets, 
    assaulted by petty pickpockets. It's terribly upsetting. The money these 
    hoodlums stole was money my fellow business-owners expected to land in their 
    cash registers. 
    
    Crime doesn't just hurt ordinary citizens, it hurts business, too. When news 
    of this incident spreads, shopping in %YOURCITY% will drop along with our 
    shopkeepers' bottom lines. Protect us by protecting our customers -- beef up 
    police coverage right away.
    
    You've done it again. You've made members of the Grateful Citizens Committee 
    even more grateful than normal. Why? Because the crime rate is very low, and 
    we feel safe walking the streets at night. 
    
    In honor of your fight against crime, a tasty new dish has been named for 
    you. Beef Tips %YOURNAME%etta with sage will be served to all prison inmates 
    on the fifth Friday of each month.
    
    Our townsfolk are just shuffling along, heads down and hearts low. Even the 
    air in the city seems stale and used. Where have the good times gone? We've 
    taken a good hard look at %YOURCITY%'s Aura, and it's so low it hardly 
    registers. 
    
    You need to find some ways to liven up this town. Give the city some spirit, 
    before all the Sims turn into spirits. And as always, have a nice day.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we can't keep this in any longer. We love this city and we 
    love you. Have you checked the city aura rating lately? It's sky-high -- a 
    reflection of your superb city management. 
    
    The Sims of %YOURCITY% are so thrilled to be living here, we're declaring a 
    new city holiday. From now on, or at least as long as we stay happy, July 1st 
    will be "Kiss The Mayor Day." 
    
    I'm going to buy a new lipstick just for the occasion.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, have you looked at the city Aura statistics lately? We've 
    got a crisis on our hands: no one is having a nice day! Our city and its Sims 
    have become progressively more and more depressed, so that now a smile is the 
    rarest of jewels. People barely talk anymore, moping about with their heads 
    low and their spirits lower. 
    
    Bring nice days back to %YOURCITY% before our club is forced to disband.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, when is this water shortage going to end? We haven't got 
    enough water to wet our whistles or wipe down the TV set. Seems like a simple 
    solution to me: build a few pumping stations to bring water to Sims. Then the 
    wife can keep her wigs washed, and I can take a shower. 
    
    There's plenty of resources in the ground, let's tap in. How's about it?
    
    I can barely speak, my throat is so parched, but I hope you can hear my plea 
    for water. We Sims need water soon, or we'll be forced to move on to greener 
    pastures.
    
    Businesses, homes, everything needs water. Sure, the problems now may seem 
    small -- Sims can't wash their cars and had to give up eating salty snacks -- 
    but without water, this city will turn into a ghost town. Do something, 
    Mayor!
    
    As we suspected, pollution has begun to contaminate our water supply. We've 
    tested water from the home taps of local Sims and though it is still 
    minimally safe for drinking, the water has taken on a variety of noxious 
    odors. 
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, water is fundamental to our city, and stinky water is the 
    first sign of a growing pollution problem. Let's clean it up now so we'll all 
    come out smelling like a rose.
    
    Many extremely dangerous pollutants are virtually colorless and odorless, yet 
    when ingested even in very tiny amounts can cause sickness, disease, and 
    worse. In an independent study conducted recently, such chemicals were 
    detected in our water supply. And the study also discovered that these 
    poisons cannot be filtered out by even the finest home water-filters.
    
    We demand effective and speedy action for this dire situation: mop up this 
    mess, and keep our water poison-free.
    
    I was driving through our downtown district on a shopping foray this weekend, 
    when I passed several malodorous, vermin-infested garbage heaps on the side 
    of the street. When I exclaimed to my driver, it was explained to me that 
    there is a collection problem, and that the citizens have no alternative but 
    to leave their trash in the streets.
    
    "Rubbish," I said. "Surely Mayor %YOURNAME% must be unaware of this mess, or 
    it would be cleaned up posthaste." Now that you're aware of this odorous 
    offense, please tidy up.
    
    The restaurants owners have come to me, Prunella Penny, with their complaints 
    about this city's garbage problem, saying it's to blame for the sharp drop in 
    food sales. Really, Mayor, you can't expect patrons to enjoy meals when the 
    entire city smells like garbage, can you? 
    
    Even Anatole, our city's most noted chef, has been affected. He was 
    devastated when diners teased him, saying his Fruit Compote smells like Fruit 
    Compost.  
    
    In the interest of food service everywhere, I insist that you provide better 
    garbage disposal services for our city.
    
    Industry prides itself on being a good corporate citizen. Not only do we 
    provide jobs and pay taxes, occasionally we make donations to some worthy 
    charity in exchange for free advertising. Politicians know how helpful 
    industry can be come election time. 
    
    All we ask in return is that you provide us with adequate city services, and 
    that includes garbage disposal. The garbage problem is interfering with our 
    businesses. Build a garbage incinerator, preferably one of those new waste-
    to-energy incinerators, and clean up our streets so we can get back to 
    business.
    
    Everywhere you look in %YOURCITY%, it's office here, shopping center there -- 
    but not a park to be found. A city isn't truly great unless there's beauty 
    and living things to greet the eye. Parks will let Sims delight in nature's 
    nurture.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, there's much more to a city than just lawyers and tax 
    rates: build some parks and build a legacy of beauty and social vision...
    
    As development has encroached on nearly every corner of the city, citizens 
    find themselves hungering for the cool shadows and refreshing shades of green 
    that only nature can provide. Let's join in a community effort to plant more 
    trees and create more greenbelts. 
    
    We want to make %YOURCITY% a place where Sims come not only to do business, 
    but to renew and refresh their spirits as well.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we're not interested in recycling the dishwater or taking 
    30-second showers -- we want water, and by the boatload. How can we call 
    ourselves a decent city if there's an indecent shortage of water? Everywhere 
    you look there are drooping trees, bent knees and listless bees. People can 
    barely talk about it because their tongues are so swollen.
    
    Put some drink in your think, Mayor, and get us some water.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you know the Green Gaians regularly update the local Sims 
    on the state of our natural resources. Today, we are dismayed to report that 
    we have detected increasing levels of chemical contaminants in our most 
    critical resource, our drinking water. This can cause untold danger to Sims, 
    their families, pets and houseplants.
    
    The citizens of %YOURCITY% are thirsty for clean water -- nothing added, 
    nothing taken away.
    
    Yesterday when I was washing the car, the wife came out and hollered to turn 
    off the water because she was trying to wash a load of laundry. This never 
    used to happen. Used to be my family could wash the car, the truck, the boat, 
    the dog, the patio, and the hair of both of my teenagers without affecting 
    the flow one bit. I talked to some of my bowling buddies last night and they 
    said they were having the same problem. 
    
    So we'd like an explanation, Mayor -- what are we going to do if the well 
    runs dry?
    
    Hey, I know you mayor-types have a lot of things to take care of, but lemme 
    tell you what the very first item on your "To Do" list should be -- Fix Power 
    Problem.  
    
    Not having power is driving me crazy. My kids are crying for their video 
    games, the wife can't curl her hair, and if I have to drink another warm 
    beer, I swear to you I'll pack up and leave. 
    
    Come on, make my day -- make my wall plugs put out some power.
    
    We may not move as fast as we used to, but we won't sit still until you solve 
    the electric utilities problem in this city. You must stop the brownouts. 
    It's more than a mere inconvenience -- if a building such as a hospital loses 
    power, the results could be tragic. 
    
    Build more power plants so that %YOURCITY%'s future stays bright.
    
    In an unprecedented move, a group of Sims staged the city's first "flashlight 
    strike" in the streets of %YOURCITY%, carrying placards claiming, "No More 
    Dark Nights, City Must Fund Lights!" A Channel 12 news team listened 
    sympathetically as Sims told gruesome tales of under-cooked suppers, unviewed 
    season-finale TV shows, and lukewarm curling irons. The Sims claim they've 
    got enough batteries to keep their flashlights lit for weeks, or at least 
    until the mayor builds more power plants. 
    
    What have you to say, Mayor %YOURNAME% -- can you shed a little light on this 
    situation?
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%? Prunella Penny of the %YOURCITY% Chamber of Commerce. I've 
    been hearing grumbling lately about your Commercial tax policy. You must 
    admit, it's a wee bit high. Perhaps it hasn't occurred to you that for 
    businesses to pay taxes, they must be making money. It's hard to make money 
    when so much of it gets diverted to the city coffers.
    
    On behalf of %YOURCITY%'s shop owners, I advise you to ease off, Mayor, and 
    give business a break for a change. I worry that some of our businesses will 
    leave if the tax situation doesn't improve soon.
    
    Prunella Penny of the %YOURCITY% Chamber of Commerce. I don't know what you 
    think you're doing, Mayor, but we at the Chamber of Commerce are just about 
    out of patience with your exorbitant Commercial tax rates.
    
    If you don't lower taxes soon, the businesses of %YOURCITY% will be packing 
    up and shipping out, and believe me, I'll do everything I can to help them. 
    I'm already investigating the business climate in %ANYNEIGHBOR% and am 
    finding a far sunnier Commercial atmosphere there.
    
    So, what's it going to be, Mayor? Lower taxes, or a deserted Commercial 
    district?
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, the city treasury is overflowing with cash but we're still 
    required to pay taxes as usual. Don't you think it's time to give us a little 
    break? 
    
    If there was ever a time to lower taxes, now is that time. It would be a nice 
    boost for industry and for %YOURCITY% too, for when we do well, the city does 
    well. Like our motto states, "All for industry, industry for all."
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, I'll try to make this short and sweet. 
    
    Factories in the city are feeling the pinch of excessively high taxes. We'll 
    pay our fair share, but it seems as if you are trying to balance the city 
    budget on the backs of the industrialists. A burden on industry is a burden 
    on everyone.
    
    We urge you to lower taxes before businesses start looking for more tax-
    friendly cities in which to operate.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, the industrial leaders of this city have been patient. We 
    have tried to work with you to arrive at a mutually-agreeable tax rate, but 
    you've refused to meet us half way. Industrial taxes are so high that many 
    businesses can no longer afford to pay them. A few industries have gone 
    bankrupt; others have left the city, enticed by the low taxes in 
    %ANYNEIGHBOR%.  And more are preparing to leave if the tax situation in 
    %YOURCITY% does not change.  
    
    Mayor, you have little time left if you want to save this city's industrial 
    base. Lower taxes or suffer the consequences.
    
    It's a pity that after years of good citizenship, the people that make a city 
    a city -- its homeowners -- are taxed so heavily that it's hard for them to 
    carry on. Sure, we're still able to make do, but our later years shouldn't be 
    filled with tax fears. We think Residential taxes should be lowered. 
    
    We've given the best years of our lives to %YOURCITY%, and it just isn't 
    right that the little money we've labored for just goes into the city 
    coffers.
    
    Whoa there, Mayor %YOURNAME%, have you paid your Residential taxes lately? 
    Did you notice that they've gone up and then up again? Just how far do you 
    think taxes can go before the residents decide to pack up and leave town? Why 
    my little daughter Posie wanted to stop for some fast food last night and I 
    had to tell her, "Nope, honey, we can't afford that. We have to give that 
    money to Uncle Sim."
    
    I've had it, and so have my fellow Sims. We're serious about leaving if you 
    don't do something about this tax torture.
    
    The Residential taxes are so high that many of the city's finest residents 
    are beating a hasty retreat. It's disgraceful to see the very people who have 
    taken care to create stately and lavish homes in %YOURCITY% -- greatly 
    contributing to the city's beauty -- dashing away because of a something so 
    trite as taxes!
    
    We simply must lower the Residential taxes in %YOURCITY% before all of the 
    better classes of citizen desert us!
    
    Why vote Yes on the CPR Training Ordinance? Because the good Sims of this 
    city who are troubled with heart or lung problems should feel safe knowing 
    that, if an emergency arises, someone nearby will know what to do.
    
    Put the ordinance in place, and know that no matter where you are in 
    %YOURCITY%, medical help is within quick reach.
    
    Some city programs are questionable, Mayor %YOURNAME%, but the CPR Ordinance 
    is ridiculous. We've dipped into city dollars for a dippy program that trains 
    our citizens for situations that almost never happen. 
    
    This program doesn't save lives, it only squanders dollars. Unless you repeal 
    this, the only thing that will need resuscitation is the city budget.
    
    In the interests of public safety, we at S.A.F.E. ask that you enact the 
    Mandatory Smoke Detector Ordinance. As you know, smoke detectors are small, 
    inexpensive battery-operated devices that emit a high-pitched beep to warn 
    Sims if smoke collects in an area. These devices can lower the incidence of 
    fire, making this city a much cooler place to live. 
    
    This is a burning issue, Mayor, and where there's smoke, it's time to put out 
    the fire.
    
    We're ready to take action into our own hands, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Just give us 
    the power to do so by enacting the Neighborhood Watch Ordinance. Police 
    officers can't be everywhere at once, and we Sims are happy to watch for 
    suspicious activity in our own neighborhoods. 
    
    This isn't a matter of money alone, Mayor, but of Sim safety.
    
    Statistics don't lie, Mayor, and our numbers show that most crimes in this 
    city are committed by teenagers, and these crimes occur at night. 
    
    We propose a Youth Curfew for the city, requiring teenagers to be at home, or 
    at least off the street, by ten o'clock every night. The teens probably won't 
    like it, but the law-abiding citizens of this city will. Pass the Youth 
    Curfew Ordinance so we can freely walk the streets again at night -- or 
    rather, so the juveniles can't.
    
    So like, what do you think you can accomplish by keeping us down? If we wanna 
    go out at night, we should fully be able to do it without worrying about the 
    5-0. It's not like we're even tired that early. All we wanna do is hang out 
    with our homies. You'd hold us down like dogs if we didn't speak up for 
    ourselves now and then. What's up with that? 
    
    Dude, drop this curfew ordinance and we won't sneak out anymore. Deal?
    
    Gambling has got to stop! The city has become a haven for all manner of 
    ne'er-do-wells and riffraff of the lowest order. There are abundant 
    opportunities in our city to make a dignified living, and if some Sims have 
    the gambling bug, let them get it out of their systems by investing in 
    something more beneficial, such as the stock market. 
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we simply must clear out the human detritus that has 
    descended upon %YOURCITY% with the advent of gambling. Repeal the Legalized 
    Gambling Ordinance now!
    
    Me and my buddies were playing poker the other night and got to talking about 
    how great it would be if %YOURCITY% legalized gambling. It would make Sims 
    like us who work for a living real happy. And I'll bet it would bring money 
    into the city from Sims in neighboring towns. 
    
    If you pass the Legalized Gambling Ordinance everyone in this city will be 
    happier, and smarter too. Like my daddy always said, there's no better way to 
    sharpen your math skills than laying down a big stack of chips at the 
    blackjack table.
    
    The time has come for the Sims of %YOURCITY% to proclaim their city's 
    literacy with a pro-reading ordinance. We propose that all Sims be tested for 
    reading skills, and that those who are less than adequate, be provided with 
    in-home tutors to enhance those skills. A thorough understanding of great 
    literature, theater, and the arts are essential to a cultivated society -- I 
    believe that reading is the key to such understanding.
    
    Dear Mayor, please give citizens the key to cultural enrichment by enacting 
    the Pro-Reading Ordinance.
    
    There's been some heavy breathing over the Public Smoking Ban ordinance, but 
    the Gray Llamas want to set the matter straight. Modern life has many foul 
    ways to cut a citizen down, but to think that there's poison in the very air 
    we breathe is a disgrace! 
    
    I strongly support Sims' rights -- what others do is their own business -- 
    but I must speak out when a Sim's right to smoke infringes on my right to 
    breathe clean air. Put an end to public smoking; anyone against this 
    ordinance is just blowing smoke.
    
    Look here, Mayor %YOURNAME%, people have the right to do themselves wrong -- 
    and that public smoking ban is depriving us of our rights. 
    
    Sure, we know that smoking has caused a few sore throats, and none of us 
    wants our pre-schoolers begging for a butt, but we're the people that put you 
    in your office, and we've got a right to smoke in that office, and all the 
    other offices in the city.
    
    We can be sensible about this: no smoking in fireworks plants or refineries 
    or that kind of place, but otherwise, lighting up should be free and easy. 
    Remember, if you outlaw cigarettes, only outlaws will have matches, or 
    something like that.
    
    The Free Clinics Ordinance would ensure that %YOURCITY% meets the health 
    needs of the entire population. Good health isn't merely a measure of 
    personal well-being--if one of our Sims is sick, we can't really say that we 
    are well. 
    
    We've got to consider the collective health of all Sims, rich or poor. Pass 
    this ordinance and wave the wand of good health over our city.
    
    The kids of %YOURCITY% need a place to play, Mayor %YOURNAME%, but they also 
    need guidance. A Junior Sports League would provide these things and more. 
    
    It isn't much to ask for the future of our children. Think of it, teams 
    instead of gangs, and games instead of crime. How can you refuse to enact 
    this ordinance?
    
    %YOURCITY% spends some serious money on some serious problems, Mayor 
    %YOURNAME%, but the Junior Sports Ordinance is a frivolous expenditure. 
    Maintaining all these complicated sports leagues and extravagant facilities 
    drains money away from programs that are useful -- and not preposterously 
    wasteful. Take that ordinance off the books now.
    
    These kids can put together their own teams, just like the kids of my day. 
    Our city needn't be pouring money down the drain to pay for soccer uniforms 
    for every child within the city limits.
    
    Dude, I have this kickin' idea -- Homeless Shelters! It fully helps out the 
    Sims on the street, and we've seen 'em. You would be totally loved for 
    helping Sims move into a safe environment and at the same time you'd be 
    cleaning up the streets for my group's annual Skate Fest. Lemme tell you, 
    skating over needy Sims is way uncool.
    
    The Homeless Shelter Ordinance is just one more idea from us unappreciated 
    teens with the greatest, like, minds in town.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, our roads are clogged with too many cars carrying too few 
    Sims in them. It's hard to get around these days, what with blaring traffic 
    jams and car-smoked streets.
    
    You could make our city a little cleaner, a little quieter, and a whole lot 
    better by passing the Carpool Incentive Ordinance.
    
    We older Sims are proud of the fact that we drive and use public 
    transportation to get around this city just as well as the young folks do. 
    But we must admit we get tired after walking a few blocks, and we won't go 
    places if they're too far away. 
    
    We'd like you to enact the Shuttle Service Ordinance. A shuttle service will 
    help us travel farther from our homes, and we could all benefit from 
    expanding our horizons a bit more.
    
    Most Sims agree that walking is good for your health unless you live in 
    %YOURCITY%. Walking is dangerous here. Cars go whizzing by with absolutely no 
    regard for pedestrians in the crosswalks. It's not safe for anyone, 
    especially the children. 
    
    This terrible problem has a very simple answer -- crossing guards.  We ask 
    that you approve the Crossing Guard Ordinance so that we can have many more 
    nice days.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we thought you were a friend to industry, but your enacting 
    the Power Conservation Ordinance is a real problem. Businesses cannot 
    function without power because it takes power to do business. When we turn 
    off our lights, we turn off our productivity. Now do you see? 
    
    We've done a lot to make this city grow, and will continue to do so if you 
    help us Mayor, and repeal that ordinance now.
    
    Someday we'll flick that light switch and the light won't turn on, unless we 
    start using electricity wisely now. The Green Gaians believe that if we teach 
    simple conservation methods like turning off lights when they are not in use, 
    we can save energy for generations to come. 
    
    Show Sims you care about the future. Enact the Power Conservation Ordinance 
    now!
    
    We do not have a limitless supply of water, and if we don't start conserving 
    now, someday we may find ourselves without any water at all. Conservation is 
    not difficult, but it does requires commitment. Sims, especially those in 
    business and industry, will need a little encouragement to use water wisely. 
    That's why we propose a Water Conservation Ordinance, a citywide program to 
    educate the public and monitor water usage.
    
    We urge you to pass this ordinance so %YOURCITY% won't dry up and blow away!
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, your administration's restrictive policies are taking away 
    one of our most important liquid assets--water. We need an ample supply of 
    water to produce the goods and services that your Sims demand, and that this 
    city needs to prosper. Don't let our industry dry up! 
    
    Show your support for industry by repealing the Water Conservation ordinance 
    today!
    
    Citizens of %YOURCITY% are all coughing and croaking out the same message -- 
    clean up the air! Nothing seems to clear our murky skies these days except a 
    heavy storm, and that only clears them enough to reveal just how dirty they 
    are. Smog from our industrial businesses has even dimmed our view of the 
    nighttime sky.
    
    Stop industrial pollution by enacting the Clean Air Ordinance -- and let the 
    citizens of %YOURCITY% take a deep breath!
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we've dealt with a mountain of regulatory red tape and 
    spent lots of money to reduce emissions from our plants -- all to comply with 
    the Clean Air Ordinance. But enough is enough. These added costs have cut 
    deeply into industry profits. 
    
    Air pollution in %YOURCITY% is almost non-existent. So why burden the most 
    important sector of the city with an unneeded and overly-restrictive 
    ordinance? We urge you to repeal this ordinance and let business get back to 
    business.
    
    It's not that we think we're better than the rest of the country, dear Mayor, 
    when we ask that %YOURCITY% be declared a Nuclear-Free Zone. It's just that 
    we feel it's the only safe, sensible and decent thing to do to protect 
    ourselves and our families -- in fact to protect all of SimNation. 
    
    We ask that you proclaim in a loud and authoritative voice: No nuclear plants 
    will be found in %YOURCITY%! No nuclear weapons will be allowed to pass 
    through our streets, and no nuclear industry research is to take place in our 
    laboratories.
    
    It's a basic fact: If the city starts issuing parking tickets, Sims will 
    change their driving habits. They may be more inclined to use mass transit 
    now and then. Some Sims might even walk to the store, rather than taking a 
    polluting drive. 
    
    Less pollution and less traffic are both great benefits, but the icing on the 
    cake is that parking tickets bring in money to the city. There is absolutely 
    no reason for you not to enact the Parking Fines Ordinance.
    
    There's something downright un-Simly about going downtown to spend your hard-
    earned money, plopping the car in a spot, and coming back to find a parking 
    ticket waving at you from the windshield. 
    
    This ordinance penalizes good Sims for shopping at our local retailers, and 
    makes us very, very unhappy.
    
    Scientific research is the advance guard toward the future: %YOURCITY% will 
    be looking backward unless they step forward and accept our science lab 
    donation. All citizens will share in the thrill of discovery and the 
    advancement of knowledge, and our high-tech industries here will directly 
    benefit from the lab's work. Move the city into tomorrow, Mayor %YOURNAME%, 
    and all Sims will look back in gratitude.
    
    Science is built on reason, Mayor--be a reasonable public servant and accept 
    this offer.
    
    In many cities across the nation, the cry for help goes largely ignored. We 
    don't think that's so in %YOURCITY%. Overwhelmed by refuse, city officials 
    are asking citizens to help save time and money--and help make this city a 
    better place to live--by presorting their garbage before they place it at the 
    curbside for pickup.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, enact the Mandatory Presort Ordinance soon. With a little 
    help from everyone, recycling will be faster, easier, and more economical.
    
    Take a look outside, Mayor. Our skies are clogged with smog from old and 
    poorly-maintained cars that spew out more smoke than a backyard barbecue. 
    
    The smog problem will only get worse unless you set strict standards for 
    automobile emissions. Enact the Car Smogging Ordinance to keep the heavy-
    polluting cars off our streets and out of our lungs.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, have you noticed the air is a little smoky? Yes, the smell 
    of burning leaves is a lovely traditional sign that autumn is here, but it 
    leaves a cloud of smoke hanging over our heads. Leaf burning puts the city at 
    risk for fire and it pollutes our air too. 
    
    We have the perfect solution. Enact the proposed Leaf Burning Ban Ordinance 
    and you will kill two birds with one stone.
    
    Mayor, this region is blessed with unusual geologic formations and rare 
    species of plant and animal life. The Department has decided to establish a 
    Geyser Park to preserve a portion of these riches for all time, either in 
    %YOURCITY% or one of its neighbors.
    
    Shall we site this jewel in your city, or shall I keep you on the top of the 
    list should some other worthy project become available?
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, your efforts to make %YOURCITY% a leading city in the 
    region have not gone unnoticed by the Bureau of Oversight. To commend your 
    good work, we grant you a very special gift -- a county courthouse.
    
    Where shall it be built? You be the judge. Just choose a site and 
    construction will begin immediately.
    
    My department has studied the strategic location of %YOURCITY% and determined 
    it would be a perfect site for a government-run lighthouse. 
    
    A lighthouse is more than a pretty little decoration. It can prevent horrible 
    disasters during raging storms, when wave-tossed crafts would otherwise stray 
    too close to shore. And of course on those balmy days, a spiffy little 
    lighthouse is a known tourist draw. They also put a certain stamp of 
    distinction on a city, a memorable mark.
    
    We're offering to construct a handsome lighthouse on the city's coast, at a 
    nominal charge. Don't let this opportunity sail by.
    
    You know a city's truly arrived when it has all the marks of sophistication: 
    fine restaurants, beautiful views -- and a posh golf course with a nice 
    country club. %YOURCITY% is moving on up, but it would be moving all the 
    faster if we could put that missing element in place: let's build that course 
    and club and read about your visionary leadership in all the papers.
    
    If you let my company build a high-class country club, you'd be making it 
    clear to the important voters of the city that you're paying attention to 
    their interests -- and they'll pay attention to yours.
    
    It's true that the citizens in %YOURCITY% have all the basics, but who can 
    live on basics alone? Your constituents are clamoring for some good times, 
    some laughs, some colored lights and whirling rides: they need a Theme Park. 
    And I can arrange a fabulous (and financially shrewd) entertainment 
    extravaganza to be built in no time.
    
    Just say the word, Mayor %YOURNAME%, and those Sims will be raising the roof 
    with woo-hoos like you've never heard before.
    
    A one-time decision on your part, Mayor, will inject a powerful new positive 
    force into %YOURCITY%'s bloodstream, promoting an increase in the overall 
    health of all Sims. In fact, there are many benefits to the proposed Medical 
    Research Center. Such a world-class center will increase our reputation, 
    raise land values and enhance the general brain capital of the entire city. 
    Just what the doctor ordered.
    
    The Industrial sectors of this city will never hit their full height unless 
    you approve strong construction projects, like the building of a big defense 
    contractor. That's the sort of development that displays a city on the move, 
    as well as making a patriotic statement in these weak-kneed days. And 
    besides, it'll employ a whole army of Sims.
    
    %YOURCITY% certainly has grown up, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Let's push it to its 
    peak by constructing a nice defense contracting plant.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, in recognition of your keen political artistry, the Society 
    for the Excessively Cultured is honored to present the city of %YOURCITY% 
    with a small token of our appreciation -- a Performing Arts Center -- to be 
    built free of charge. 
    
    While culture may sometimes defy definition, and art appreciation is 
    subjective, a Performing Arts Center can be enjoyed by all citizens. And of 
    course, you will have a reserved box seat so you can enjoy it in style.   
    
    Just select a site for the Performing Arts Center so construction can get 
    underway.
    
    Yesterday as I was driving home with my family from the stadium in Sheaton, I 
    suddenly realized -- that's what %YOURCITY% needs, our own stadium! Having 
    our own stadium, and our own team to support, sure would make me and my 
    buddies happy. Why to think of all the times we drove to another town to see 
    a game when we would have preferred spend our hard-earned cash right here. 
    
    Let's bring in the majors and the minors, Mayor, and invite the good sports 
    to our city for a change!
    
    When you enacted the Legalized Gambling Ordinance, I made a mental note to 
    keep %YOURCITY% in mind as a potential site for a gambling casino. Well, 
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, the time is right and your city is the perfect place.
    
    Think of it: bright lights, spinning wheels, and smiles on the faces of all 
    the happy winners. Sure, some sour-grapes types might cry that they lost 
    their milk money, but hey, you can't win if you don't play.
    
    I am prepared to pay you %X% per month if you allow me to build a casino 
    within the city limits. And of course, I'll see that you have a reserved 
    parking spot. Do we have a deal?
    
    The future is upon us. We have reached the point where the once-crazy idea of 
    a spaceport in %YOURCITY% is now a reality. Or at least it can be, if you'll 
    agree to build one here.
    
    A spaceport will bring new customers from faraway places to our Commercial 
    centers, and will probably open up whole new lines for manufacturing.  Be 
    forward-thinking and build the spaceport now, before a neighbor builds one. 
    The countdown has begun, Mayor %YOURNAME%.
    
    It is with great honor that we announce the gift of a university for our fine 
    city.  Our high standards of excellence in education and culture have made 
    %YOURCITY% a perfect place for a prestigious university.  Now there will be 
    no boundaries for our scholars, no limits for our Sims.  
    
    Congratulations Mayor %YOURNAME%, on nurturing a well-cultured and literate 
    society!  Now just choose an appropriate site for this new source of pride.
    
    %YOURCITY% needs a marina to serve our burgeoning boating community. If you 
    take a cruise through our waterways, you'll find smart and sophisticated 
    yachts, all dressed up with no place to go. Just as a stylish yacht defines a 
    cultivated person, so does a stylish marina define an cultivated city. 
    
    As you know, Mayor %YOURNAME%, some of the city's most renowned guests arrive 
    in splendid seacraft--I think it's important that we provide an equally 
    lavish marina to moor their boats--don't you?
    
    In the tradition of many grand cities around the world, we feel it is time 
    for %YOURCITY% to have its own zoo. When small children are confronted with 
    Dame Nature and all of her glorious creatures (in a safe setting, of course), 
    the poetic, artistic side of their tiny minds is stimulated in a rare 
    fashion. They begin to recognize the difference between themselves and the 
    beasts of the jungle. 
    
    As a mother, I plead with you, dear Mayor, to build a zoo and let our 
    children experience the glory of the wild things.
    
    I've seen plenty in my years, Mayor %YOURNAME%, but I can't think of a time 
    when the treatment of healthcare workers has been as bad as it is now in 
    %YOURCITY%. Think you're saving the city a few simoleans by not providing 
    raises? Think again. If these workers go on strike, you'll have a dickens of 
    a problem on your hands. 
    
    I say given them their raise. They've earned it.
    
    Speaking on behalf of the healthcare workers, I urge you to raise funding and 
    end this strike. We Sims can't rest easy until our hospitals are fully 
    staffed and ready to serve. Mayor %YOURNAME%, they're only asking for a small 
    raise and a few benefits. Denying them denies us all.
    
    We're old enough to know that the city can afford to pay its workers what 
    they're worth. Share the wealth and spare our health.
    
    As you know, the teachers in %YOURCITY% are some of the lowest-paid 
    professionals in the entire region. If we don't give teachers a raise and 
    provide them with new textbooks and supplies, they will strike. And if they 
    strike, our children will be the victims, missing days and perhaps weeks of 
    critical education. An ill-educated child bodes no good for society.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, please hear the plea, and do everything in your power to 
    avert a potentially disastrous strike!
    
    This teachers' strike has persisted far too long and is, frankly, an 
    embarrassment. As I gaze at my children, playing with Cook on a day when 
    their little heads should be bowed over their schoolbooks, I imagine bits of 
    knowledge drifting out into the summer sky, never to return. 
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, I will not accept no for an answer -- you simply must 
    release additional funds for those striking educators!
    
    Mayor, the police of %YOURCITY% work hard to keep us safe from crime. You 
    have to listen to their complaints. We need them to protect us, and if they 
    aren't happy, they aren't going to do a very good job. We support our police 
    departments; so should you. So strike while the iron's hot, Mayor %YOURNAME%, 
    and prevent a police walkout.
    
    If ever there was an emergency, this is it! Mayor %YOURNAME%, you can't let 
    this situation go on any longer. Our lives are in danger, and the security of 
    %YOURCITY% is threatened by this police strike. You'd better cop to reality, 
    Mayor. It's time to give them what they need.
    
    S.A.F.E. demands that you give the police a raise and put an end to this 
    strike.
    
    We are appalled at your lack of attention to the issue of the firefighters. 
    By ignoring their demands, you have forced their hand. Now they are striking, 
    and let's hope it isn't matches they are striking, because the city is now in 
    the hot seat.
    
    You seem to ignore our demands, so this time we'll ask nicely -- please raise 
    fire funding and stop this strike.
    
    There's talk of a transit strike, Mayor %YOURNAME%, and that kind of talk 
    threatens us all. If our transit systems shut down, this city goes to sleep, 
    and it's not a restful sleep either. Why don't you raise transportation 
    funding and get those tireless conductors, track-layers and ticket-takers the 
    pay boost they deserve? Their labors rid our streets of traffic jams, 
    pollution, and bad-tempered drivers.
    
    Put a chunk of this city's money into transportation, and none of us will be 
    trapped without transit. Otherwise, you'll hear the gridlock groans of the 
    whole city.
    
    The transportation situation in %YOURCITY% is grim indeed, Mayor %YOURNAME%. 
    Crushing lines of traffic and a rail system operating so far behind schedule 
    that passengers might as well walk--it's appalling. Those striking workers 
    are well worth the little money we pay them; let's bump up their salaries and 
    benefits a bit and make this city move again.
    
    Just lean out your window and listen to those horns honk and smell that 
    exhaust rise. Increasing the transportation budget is a small price to pay to 
    remove those blights.
    
    News is you've got a serious water problem over in %YOURCITY%. We've had our 
    share of problems in %NEIGHBOR% too, so I know what you're going through. If 
    it would help you out, we could make a deal where we sell water to you. Here 
    are the terms:
    
    %NEIGHBOR% can sell you all the water you need to cover your city's monthly 
    deficit (as detected at the connection point) for %Y% per 1000 cubic meters. 
    There's a minimum monthly charge of %W% whether you need to buy any water or 
    not. And if you terminate the deal without our consent, we'll charge you a 
    penalty of %Z%.
    
    A deal like this could help us both. What do you say, Mayor %YOURNAME%?
    
    Rumor has it you don't have enough water in %YOURCITY% to fill a thimble. But 
    don't worry, fellow mayor; a perfect solution is at hand. I have a deal for 
    you.
    
    %NEIGHBOR% can sell you all the water you need to cover your city's monthly 
    deficit (as detected at the connection point) for %Y% per 1000 cubic meters, 
    the current price set by the Utilities Exchange Board. There is a minimum 
    monthly charge of %W% whether you buy any water or not. And if you terminate 
    the deal without our consent, we'll only charge you a small penalty of %Z%.
    
    Sound good?
    
    Frankly, I'm a bit surprised that a mayor with as many years of experience as 
    you have could let a water shortage get out of hand. It just goes to show 
    that being mayor is never an easy job. Lucky for you, we have excess water 
    and are willing to make a deal. 
    
    We offer to sell you water at a cost of %Y% per 1000 cubic meters. Each 
    month, we'll calculate your water deficit at the connection point and will 
    deliver this amount. We'll expect cash on delivery of course, and have a 
    minimum monthly charge of %W%, even if you don't need to buy any water. If 
    you terminate this deal without our consent, we will charge you a penalty of 
    %Z%. 
    
    I hope this deal sounds reasonable to you. I'm happy to help out -- I know 
    you'd do the same for me.
    
    Accelerated overhead and additional mitigating occurrences have forced us to 
    change the terms of our existing deal. If you do not agree to the new terms, 
    you may cancel the deal without penalty.
    
    We propose a new rate of %Y% per 1000 cubic meters and will continue to 
    provide all the water you need each month. The minimum monthly charge of %W% 
    will still apply. If you accept this deal and later terminate it without our 
    consent, we will charge you a penalty of %Z%.
    
    I trust we can continue doing business with each other.
    
    %YOURCITY%'s water deal with %NEIGHBOR% has got to be stopped. We're paying 
    good money for water we don't need. Why are we allowing important city funds 
    to flow in the wrong direction? Let's cut the money hoses; our thirst has 
    been duly quenched.
    
    Water is life's liquid, but you can always have too much of a good thing. 
    Quash this spendthrift deal, Mayor, and tighten the valve on excessive 
    spending.
    
    I've heard you can't generate enough electric power for your Sims. I can just 
    imagine how they're complaining. The Sims in my city are complaining to me 
    about the expensive power plants I built -- %NEIGHBOR% is producing lots of 
    excess power. Could I spark your interest in making a deal to buy some?
    
    I can offer to sell you power every month at a cost of %Y% per 1000 MW-h. The 
    quantity sold will be calculated each month based on the power deficit we 
    detect at the connection point. The minimum charge per month is %W%, even if 
    you don't need any power. And if you terminate this deal without our consent, 
    you will be charged a penalty of %Z%.
    
    Do we have a deal?
    
    I've heard you could use some more power over in %YOURCITY%. We have power to 
    sell, if you're interested in making a deal. Here are the terms:
    
    %NEIGHBOR% will sell you power at a rate of %Y% per 1000 MW-h. The quantity 
    we sell every month will be based on the power deficit detected at the 
    connection point. We'll expect to be paid every month and must assess a 
    minimum monthly charge of %W% even if you don't buy any power that month. If 
    you terminate the deal without our consent, we'll charge you a penalty of 
    %Z%. 
    
    Does that sound fair to you?
    
    Increased production costs have forced us to change the terms of our deal to 
    sell you power. If you do not agree to these new terms, you may cancel the 
    deal without penalty. 
    
    We propose a new rate of %Y% per 1000 MW-h and will continue to provide all 
    the power you need each month, with a minimum charge of %W% if you don't need 
    to buy any power. If you accept this deal and later terminate it without our 
    consent, we will charge you a penalty of %Z%.
    
    I hope you will accept these new terms.
    
    %YOURCITY% is throwing exorbitant city monies to %NEIGHBOR% to pay for power 
    when we can generate plenty right here. Negate this negative power-buying 
    deal, and put a positive charge on city coffers. We can redirect that money 
    toward needed city services, or better yet, bank it and collect a prudent 
    interest. We're powerful all on our own -- we don't need to be charged for 
    our charge.
    
    They say that money is power, Mayor %YOURNAME%; let's keep our money and our 
    power to ourselves.
    
    You've probably heard about the unprecedented growth in %NEIGHBOR%. Seems 
    like we've become a burgeoning metropolis overnight. But now we need more 
    power, and I'm hoping you will sell it to us.  
    
    I'm ready to make a deal immediately if you agree to these terms: each month 
    %NEIGHBOR% will buy %X% MW-h of power from you and will pay you %Y%. Since we 
    will be counting on you to supply us power, if you terminate this deal 
    without our consent, we will charge you a penalty of %Z%.  
    
    Do we have a deal?
    
    Have you heard about the multiple power plant explosions in %NEIGHBOR%? The 
    disaster has left my city virtually powerless -- and I've got to do something 
    fast to deal with all the blackouts.  
    
    If you'd be willing to sell us %X% MW-h of power each month, we will pay %Y% 
    each month directly into your city treasury. If you terminate this deal 
    without our consent, we will charge you a penalty of %Z%.  
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, learn from my mistakes -- take good care of your power 
    plants. And don't pass up a good deal when it's staring you in the face.
    
    These cities sure grow fast, don't they? Seems like just yesterday %NEIGHBOR% 
    was a tiny dot on the map of SimNation. Now we're bulging at the seams, and 
    our power needs are shockingly high. I've run out of space to build new power 
    plants, and want to make a deal to buy power from %YOURCITY%.
    
    Because we're such good neighbors, I'll offer to pay you %Y% each month for 
    providing %X% MW-h of power. Since we'll be counting on the power you sell us 
    each month, if you terminate the deal without our consent, we'll charge you a 
    penalty of %Z%.  
    
    You give us a source of power, we'll give you a source of income. Do we have 
    a deal?
    
    %NEIGHBOR% has been growing like a weed--a mighty thirsty weed. I just can't 
    keep up with the increasing demand for water. So I'm coming to you with a 
    proposal, Mayor %YOURNAME%. 
    
    Would you sell us some water? We'll pay you %Y% monthly if you supply us with 
    %X% cubic meters of water. If for any reason you should terminate this deal 
    without our consent, we will charge you a penalty of %Z%. 
    
    I've heard you could use the money. Think about it. This is a good deal for 
    both of us.
    
    Confidentially, Mayor %YOURNAME%, I've made some mistakes as mayor of 
    %NEIGHBOR%. The worst mistake was underestimating the city's water needs -- 
    I've put my Sims in danger. But luckily, the treasury is awash with cash. 
    
    I will offer to buy %X% cubic meters of water from %YOURCITY% each month and 
    will pay you %Y% monthly. Since we will be counting on you to provide us 
    water, if you terminate the deal without our consent, we will charge you a 
    penalty fee of %Z%.  
    
    Please agree to this deal--I need your help now.
    
    I supposed you heard of the water problems in %NEIGHBOR%. My Sims are unhappy 
    with the strict water conservation program--they're only supposed to flush 
    every four "uses" -- so they're after me to find another source of water. I'm 
    hoping that source is %YOURCITY%. 
    
    I can offer to pay you %Y% if you supply us with %X% cubic meters of water 
    monthly. Since we so desperately need this water, if you terminate the deal 
    without our consent, we will charge you a penalty of %Z%. 
    
    These terms are fair, and I hope you'll agree to them. You'll be helping a 
    city in need, and gaining a little kicker in your treasury each month.
    
    You know, Mayor %YOURNAME%, with the new pro-growth policies in %NEIGHBOR%, 
    I'm finding we could use more water to meet the growing demand. I propose a 
    change in the terms of our deal.
    
    We will pay you %Y% each month for %X% cubic meters of water. If you accept 
    these new terms, we will again need to charge a penalty of %Z% if you 
    terminate the deal in the future. But if you want to cancel the whole thing 
    now, you won't be charged a penalty.
    
    Just give the okay and I'll have the contract revised.
    
    Confidentially, Mayor %YOURNAME%, the garbage problem in %NEIGHBOR% has 
    gotten out of hand. I've got to get rid of it somehow, and after hearing of 
    your financial troubles, I thought we might be able to make a deal.
    
    I can offer to pay you %Y% each month to dispose of %X% tons of garbage. This 
    amount may increase as our city grows, but so will the money we pay you. And 
    by the way, if you terminate this deal without our mutual consent, you will 
    be charged a penalty of %Z%. 
    
    I believe this deal will benefit both our cites. Can we shake on 
    this?ª   Mayor %YOURNAME%, I'd like to propose a deal: Cash for Trash. It's 
    simple. You take %NEIGHBOR%'s trash, and we'll pay you cold, hard cash.
    
    I can offer to pay you %Y% each month to dispose of about %X% tons of 
    garbage. The quantity (and the amount we pay you) may increase as our city 
    grows. 
    
    The only caveat is that we must assess a termination penalty fee of %Z% if 
    you decide to cancel the deal without our mutual consent.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, wouldn't it be nice to find extra funds deposited in your 
    treasury each month?  I propose a deal: 
    
    I'd like you to dispose of %NEIGHBOR%'s excess trash each month and offer to 
    pay you %Y% for this service. We need you to dispose of about %X% tons a 
    month, though this amount (and the amount we pay you) may rise as our city 
    grows. 
    
    Be aware that if you terminate this deal without our mutual consent, you will 
    be charged a penalty fee of %Z%.
    
    The city of %NEIGHBOR% is very pleased with the deal we have to export our 
    garbage to you. But our city has grown, and we require a change in terms. 
    
    We now offer you %Y% each month, but will need to dispose of a much larger 
    quantity, %X% tons each month. Like before, we will assess a penalty of %Z% 
    if you cancel the deal without our consent.
    
    If you do not agree to these terms, you can cancel the deal now with no 
    penalty. Please let me know your decision as soon as possible.
    
    
    We're paying good money for a bad deal -- we don't need to export our trash 
    to %NEIGHBOR%, especially at these prices. This city could easily manage its 
    own waste disposal, and it should. I think canceling this deal will save us 
    money in the long run.
    
    Of course, there is the matter of the penalty for terminating the deal. But 
    we'll be free from our obligation to pay a monthly disposal fee, and that fee 
    just seems like throwing money away with the trash.
    
    
    Mayor, what would it be worth to you to keep your city free of unsightly 
    garbage? I'm authorized to offer you a sweet-smelling deal:
    
    %NEIGHBOR% will dispose of your city's excess garbage for the low monthly 
    cost of %Y% per 100 tons. If you accept this deal, you'll never have to worry 
    about garbage disposal again because each month we'll remove all the trash 
    your city can't process, no matter what the quantity. Of course, there is a 
    minimum monthly charge of %W% even if you don't have any excess trash to send 
    us. 
    
    Be aware that if you end this deal without our consent, we will charge you a 
    termination penalty fee of %Z%.
    
    
    You may have heard the expression, "One Sim's trash is another Sim's 
    treasure." Well, we in %NEIGHBOR% would treasure the chance to bury your 
    trash in our landfills.
    
    Of course, we'd have to charge a nominal fee for this service -- a monthly 
    cost of %Y% per 100 tons. We'll take any quantity of excess garbage you 
    produce. If some month you don't have any excess trash, we'll still have to 
    charge you a minimum fee of %W%.  With this deal in place, you'd solve a 
    messy problem and we'd make a tidy profit.
    
    I urge you to take advantage of our offer. Be aware though that if you cancel 
    this deal without our mutual consent, we will assess a penalty of %Z%.
    
    
    The %NEIGHBOR% Fellowship of Waste Engineers have informed me that we must 
    raise the cost of importing garbage. We suggest changing the terms of our 
    existing deal as follows:
    
    We will accept all %YOURCITY%'s excess garbage each month at a cost of %Y% 
    per 100 tons. A penalty of %Z% will be assessed if you cancel the deal 
    without our mutual consent.
    
    If you do not accept these new terms, you have the opportunity to cancel the 
    deal now and not pay the termination penalty.
    
    
    I see you have decided to pull out of the garbage deal we had between our 
    cities.  You could have at least discussed it with me first. 
    
    Sorry Mayor %YOURNAME%, but business is business. Under the terms of the 
    arrangement, you will be charged a %Z% penalty fee.
    
    
    I know you're dealing with an unpleasant power situation over in %YOURCITY%, 
    but be assured that your friends in %NEIGHBOR% would like to help. 
    
    In the spirit of unity, we offer to sell you power each month at the current 
    rate of %Y% per 1000 MW-h. The quantity will vary, depending on your power 
    needs as determined at the connection point. You may want to review your 
    power infrastructure and make sure any areas of need can receive power from 
    the connection. 
    
    There's a minimum monthly charge of %W% if you don't buy any power during a 
    month. And if you cancel the deal with getting our consent first, we'll have 
    to charge you a penalty of %Z%.
    
    Shall I draw up the paperwork?
    
    
    The situation with the firefighters is heating up. They could call a strike 
    at any moment.  %YOURCITY% will not last long without a fully-functioning 
    fire department. If a fire breaks out with no firefighters, well, you know 
    what could happen. I'm sure you wouldn't want that kind of tragedy burning in 
    your conscience. 
    
    When it comes to public safety, we should have money to burn. Give the 
    firefighters a raise.
    
    
    Ten hut, Mayor! %YOURCITY% has many strategic advantages, so we are prepared 
    to site a new military base here. This base would host our Sims in uniform, 
    provide increased Industrial capacity for the city, and at the same time 
    demonstrate patriotic pride in SimNation.
    
    If you decline our offer, we will likely relocate the base in one of the 
    neighboring cities.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, it's no secret that Sims love to shop. Shopping has become 
    a new form of entertainment, a sport for all seasons where the name of the 
    game is instant gratification and the only equipment needed is a bulging 
    wallet. You could cash in on this new national pastime if you built a 
    gigamall. It would be a great boost to your Commercial sector. 
    
    My accountants are prepared to offer you %X% per month if you agree to allow 
    us to build a gigamall within the city limits. You owe it to your Sims to 
    agree to this deal.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we must reduce the amount of garbage produced in this city. 
    The Gaians have studied this problem, and recommend recycling as a first 
    step. Did you know that some cities are able to recycle 45% of their garbage? 
    We won't hit those numbers without a serious investment and public education 
    campaigns, but building a recycling center would be a great start. 
    
    Help us return to our pristine (and pleasantly perfumed) past. With recycling 
    centers, %YOURCITY% can become a model of cleanliness.
    
    
    Exciting news, Mayor %YOURNAME%. A group of underpaid interns from my agency 
    conducted a study of different locations around SimNation. %YOURCITY% was 
    found to meet all the requirements to support a maximum-security prison. 
    
    If you allow us to build a prison here, the Bureau has authorized me to offer 
    you %X% simoleons per month paid directly to your treasury. In addition to 
    this generous subsidy, the prison will add a substantial number of high-
    paying jobs to your city. I'll need your answer soon, as other cities are 
    waiting to step in should you decline.
    
    
    Our city's police force is out of control, arresting Sims for breaking 
    obscure (and I believe non-existent) laws. Why, just this morning my son was 
    arrested for illegal possession of a pocket protector. When I tried to 
    intervene and asked to see the arresting officer's badge, he threatened to 
    throw me in jail for badgering a police officer. 
    
    To be honest, Mayor, I'm more afraid of the police than I am of the 
    criminals. And to think you're wasting the tax dollars of this city to fund 
    this oppression -- it's an outrage!
    
    Cut police funding now and get these overzealous peacekeepers off our 
    streets.
    
    
    Sims like to have lush, weed-free lawns, but many don't realize that 
    chemicals they spray on the grass end up contaminating our ground water. It's 
    a terrible problem with a fairly easy solution -- stop using lawn chemicals. 
    
    We'd like your support on a Lawn Chemical Ordinance which bans the use of 
    these toxic chemicals anywhere within the city limits. Sims with an 
    environmental conscience understand that there are other methods for 
    nourishing a healthy lawn.
    
    
    I'm standing outside the city's casino where a group of local residents, led 
    by Angelo Martini, have gathered to protest. 
    
    "At first, I was excited when I heard they'd be building a casino in my 
    neighborhood. I love to gamble -- but not with my life. Truth is, the day 
    they plugged in the one-armed bandits, a whole army of two-armed bandits 
    showed up brandishing guns and knives. No matter what the police do, they 
    can't keep them at bay. How much risk are we supposed to take? Get this crime 
    magnet out of my backyard!"
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you will answer his pleas and tear down the casino?
    
    
    Your Honor, if you enact the Electronics Job Fair Ordinance, we can showcase 
    our workforce to high-tech employers, and hopefully convince them that 
    %YOURCITY% is a great place to run a business. 
    
    This ordinance is not an expense, it is an investment. Everyone benefits when 
    cleaner industry is attracted to a city.
    
    
    So %YOURNAME%, you showed up. I was afraid you might bail on me. I hope 
    nobody followed you here. This is just between you and me, capeesh? 
    
    I acquired some cash through some, well, let's just say unconventional 
    methods (wink, wink -- nudge, nudge) and I needed to find a safe place to 
    drop it for a while. If you're game, I can electronically transfer the whole 
    enchilada over to you. It should show up in your account in a few days.
    
    You take care of this for me and keep your mouth shut and everybody will be 
    happy. The fewer questions you ask, the better off you'll be.
    
    By the way, if we bump into each other again, let's both act like this 
    meeting never took place.
    
    
    Your Honor, traffic is getting worse. I've heard of other cities imposing a 
    driving restriction on cars. They can only drive every other day, depending 
    on whether their car has an odd or an even license plate. I think a plan like 
    this would work in %YOURCITY%.
    
    I propose the Alternate Day Driving Ordinance. If you approve, we can cut our 
    traffic problem in half.
    
    
    Some Sims believe they are being overbilled for water. We cannot dispute 
    these claims because without water meters, there is no way to prove how much 
    water they actually used. 
    
    The Mandatory Water Meters Ordinance would settle all disputes. It requires 
    water meters be placed in every building to track water usage. I hear that 
    the presence of water meters lowers water consumption.
    
    
    Your Honor, the Sims of %YOURCITY% deserve the freshest fruits and vegetables 
    possible. And what better way to get them than in a city-sponsored open air 
    market? 
    
    It costs the city nothing and is good for everyone, especially the farmers.
    
    Nobody is against the Farmer's Market Ordinance. Vote it in and Sims will be 
    a little happier and healthier.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, used tires are a big problem. They waste landfill space or 
    accumulate in piles that, if ignited, pollute our air. Did you know that 
    tires could be recycled and used in road paving material? It can even reduce 
    the cost of building roads. %YOURCITY% would greatly benefit from having a 
    tire recycling program.
    
    We could set the wheels in motion today, if you agree to enact the Tire 
    Recycling Ordinance.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, the Sims of %YOURCITY% are eager to show all of SimNation 
    what a wonderful city we have here. This is a matter of civic pride, not a 
    lust for tourist simoleons. 
    
    The Tourist Promotion Ordinance will help our Commercial sector by attracting 
    new customers. It can also make %YOURCITY% a household word from hither to 
    yon. I'm sure I needn't remind you how important that could make you.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we have a beautiful city, but lately it seems to be hidden 
    beneath a blanket of litter. Now, I'm not saying %YOURCITY% is filthy, all 
    I'm saying is that we certainly have room for improvement. If we establish a 
    Conservation Corps, teams of dedicated citizens will keep the city streets 
    and waterways free from litter, letting the beauty of our city shine through.
    
    Please enact the Conservation Corps Ordinance. The cost is minimal and aside 
    from keeping our city clean, we'll be giving our youth a positive role in 
    city operations. And if it's true that a clean city attracts clean industry, 
    we'll enjoy some long term benefits as well.
    
    
    We at the Bureau of Oversight believe that anything which reduces paperwork 
    is probably a good thing. We are already several years behind in filing our 
    reports. The seven volume memorandum recently issued by our office cites the 
    Paperwork Reduction Ordinance as an important factor in saving many hours in 
    our efforts to catch up. It would also reduce garbage levels in the city.
    
    I urge you to enact this desperately needed measure.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, the citizens of %YOURCITY% want and deserve access to 
    television airways. Sims have a stake in this city, and they should be given 
    a chance to say what's on their minds. 
    
    If we establish a Public Access cable station, we'll be showing the world 
    that %YOURCITY% has technological savvy. That should grab the attention of 
    telecommunications firms looking for a place to set up shop. 
    
    Don't let the future whiz by without us -- enact the Public Access Cable 
    Ordinance -- and have a nice day.
    
    
    It doesn't really matter to us how the water connection between our cities 
    was destroyed. The bottom line is you have reneged on the terms of our deal, 
    and you'll be charged a penalty of %Z%. 
    
    Next time you make a deal, you'd better keep a close eye on the water mains.
    
    
    We're not doing everything we can to keep garbage levels in check. I'm 
    surprised that the city hasn't taken more of a leadership role in promoting 
    the benefits of composting. Or perhaps you weren't aware that organic trash 
    can be converted to a useful fertilizer right in our own backyards?  
    
    Sims need guidance and encouragement to reduce the amount of garbage their 
    households generate. Anything they can compost is less waste that the city 
    must dispose of. Pass the Backyard Composting Ordinance and watch garbage 
    levels drops.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, industrial waste is a serious problem. It will only become 
    worse unless those responsible are made to pay for their actions. 
    
    The Industrial Waste Disposal Tax will impose a flat monthly fee on all 
    businesses. The money will be used to cover the cost of disposing of the 
    industrial refuse they generate. 
    
    I urge you to approve this tax. It will stop the city from using the general 
    city funds to clean up waste created by industry, and that makes it fair.
    
    
    So the deal's off? I heard the power connection between our cities was 
    destroyed. Such a shame -- and I thought you were pleased with the deal. But 
    since you've reneged, you'll have to pay the penalty of %Z%. 
    
    Sorry -- maybe we can make a deal again in the future.
    
    
    Excellent work, Mayor %YOURNAME%. We've noticed that you have significantly 
    increased our city's garbage disposal capacity. Thanks! Now we can create 
    more trash without feeling even a twinge of guilt. 
    
    I'm going to suggest that we establish a new holiday on the first Saturday of 
    the month: "It's A Nice Day to Clean Out Your Closets" Day.
    
    
    The terms of the current deal to sell power to %NEIGHBOR% are as follows:
    
    %YOURCITY% is selling %X% MW-h of power each month to %NEIGHBOR% at a cost of 
    %Y%. If %YOURCITY% terminates this deal without the consent of %NEIGHBOR%,

    deficit in %YOURCITY% as measured at the connection point. There is a minimum 
    monthly charge of %W%. If %YOURCITY% terminates this deal without the consent 
    of %NEIGHBOR%, %YOURCITY% will be charged a penalty of %Z%.

    %YOURCITY% agrees to accept %X% tons of garbage from %NEIGHBOR% each month 
    for which %NEIGHBOR% will pay %Y%. 
    
    If %YOURCITY% terminates the contract at a time other than during 
    renegotiations, %YOURCITY% will be charged a termination fee of %Z%.
    
    
    The terms of the current garbage export deal are as follows:
    
    %NEIGHBOR% agrees to accept all excess garbage from %YOURCITY% each month. 
    For each 100 tons of garbage exported, %YOURCITY% will pay %Y%. If no garbage 
    is exported in a given month, a minimum charge of %W% will apply.
    
    If %YOURCITY% terminates the contract at a time other than during 
    renegotiations, %YOURCITY% will be charged a termination fee of %Z%.
    
    
    Hey! We've stopped getting power from you. 
    
    I assume this means you've canceled the deal. Okay -- if that's what you 
    want. But since we didn't consent to this, you'll be charged the penalty of 
    %Z%.
    
    
    I just heard that the %YOURCITY% well has run dry. We've stopped getting 
    water from you.  
    
    We have a contract, and you're not living up to your end of the deal. Since 
    you've broken the terms and have effectively terminated the deal without our 
    consent, we are charging you the penalty of %Z%.
    
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, we should do everything we can to attract aerospace 
    companies to our city. This is a non-polluting industry, and can provide 
    high-tech jobs to our workforce. 
    
    A tax subsidy is a powerful form of persuasion. I believe it is the best tool 
    we have to grab the attention of the aerospace industry. Please enact the 
    Aerospace Tax Incentive, and help draw clean industry to our city. You owe it 
    to your Sims.
    
    
    Methane gas is a natural by-product of land fill decomposition. Rising gasses 
    pollute our air and make the areas around landfills unpleasant. But we have 
    the technology to trap the methane before it pollutes, and we can even use 
    the collected gas to help generate power in the city. 
    
    Don't turn your nose up at this idea. Pass the Landfill Gas Recovery 
    Ordinance.
    
    
    Your Honor, we hope you will support this city's membership in the Clean 
    Industry Association. This worthy association helps to clean the environment 
    not only in our city, but in the entire region. The small fee is 
    insignificant when you consider the good that will come about. 
    
    We urge you to make your city a member of the association. Just enact the 
    Clean Industry Ordinance, and have a very nice (and very clean) day.
    
    
    Earthquakes can be devastating to cities and to families. Anything that can 
    mitigate their effects should be pursued. 
    
    That's why we come to you today asking that you enact the Earthquake 
    Resistance and Retrofit Ordinance. This ordinance will pay to re-enforce all 
    the structures in the city so that they can withstand greater levels of earth 
    movement. 
    
    Consider it insurance against quakes of high magnitude, considering that the 
    damage and injury incurred during an earthquake can be serious and long 
    lasting.´   Mayor, my contacts in the business world assure me that smart 
    cities are using tax incentives to bring in biotech industries. That's why we 
    are asking you to enact the Biotech Tax Incentive ordinance.
    
    Your Honor, incentives like this one are desperately needed if %YOURCITY% 
    hopes to attract a diversity of industry. The small amount of money this will 
    cost the city will be repaid many times over as more industry locates in the 
    city.
    
    
    Your Honor, stairwell lighting might not seem like very much, but if lighting 
    in all the stairwells were properly controlled, %YOURCITY% might 
    significantly reduce power consumption. Some Llamas have seen this happen in 
    other countries. We know it could work here.
    
    Please consider enacting the Stairwell Lighting Ordinance.
    
    
    We are sniffing around for more trash -- trash customers, that is. %NEIGHBOR% 
    can offer to dispose of all your excess trash for you. No muss, no fuss. 
    
    Of course, we'd have to charge a nominal fee for this service -- a monthly 
    cost of %Y% per 100 tons. We'll take any quantity of excess garbage you 
    produce. If some month you don't have any excess trash, we'll still have to 
    charge you a minimum fee of %W%.  
    
    I urge you to take advantage of our offer. Be aware though that if you cancel 
    this deal without our mutual consent, we will assess a penalty of %Z%.
    
    
    We want to increase the amount of power we buy from you, and propose a change 
    to our existing contract. If you do not agree to the new terms, you may 
    cancel the deal without penalty.
    
    We propose to buy %X% MW-h of power each month for %Y%. If you accept this 
    deal and later terminate it without our consent, we will charge you a penalty 
    of %Z%.
    
    These terms are more than fair, so I trust we can continue doing business 
    with each other.
    
    
    Reports provided to me indicate that the connections between our two cities 
    have been destroyed. This means the route for shipping garbage no longer 
    exists. Your city has effectively terminated the garbage deal without our 
    consent.
    
    Under the terms of the arrangement, you will be charged a %Z% penalty fee.
    
    Please be assured that this is strictly a business deal, and in no way 
    impugns our otherwise cordial relationship.
    
    
    Sorry Mayor %YOURNAME%, but the news you wanted to discuss is already out of 
    date.

    Excellent. Our contributions to your treasury will begin as soon as you 
    choose a site.
    
    A blow to the corporate vultures, and a boon to the citizens. We've helped 
    make %YOURCITY% safe for our children and our grandchildren!
    
    Channel 12 salutes the mayor for putting the needs of the Sims ahead of 
    financial gain.
    
    Bravo! You're a mayor with a heart and a mind. I'll bet Sims will have fewer 
    heart attacks, since they won't have to worry that no one could help them if 
    they had a heart attack.
    
    You're a lifesaver, Mayor. You've killed a silly program, and brought our 
    budget back to life.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you have made an excellent investment in the future of 
    %YOURCITY%.
    
    You have taken an important step in crime reduction, Mayor %YOURNAME%. We 
    congratulate you.
    
    You have shown your commitment to crime eradication, and we thank you...
    
    Right on dude! The happiness you just saved may be your own. We'll chill for 
    awhile, or at least until you do something stupid again.
    
    A sane decision, Mayor %YOURNAME%. By ending gambling in our city, you have 
    chosen to stop the moral decay that always accompanies vice.
    
    All right! You made gambling legal! Did I tell you I had ten-spot riding on 
    your decision? Want to make a little side bet on first-year incomes?...
    
    An intelligent and educated move, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Our Sims deserve all the 
    benefits that befit a well-read and cultivated populace.
    
    What a healthy choice! I thank you, and my lungs thank you.
    
    Thanks for restoring my rights. Listen, can I borrow a smoke?
    
    A clear-headed decision, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Access to decent health care is a 
    right, and this ordinance is the right choice for all our citizens.
    
    Who's on first? You are, Mayor %YOURNAME%! Thanks for seeing it our way.
    
    That's the ticket, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Take the public pacifier out of the 
    mouths of these selfish youths and put it to good (and cost-efficient) work 
    elsewhere.
    
    Maybe you don't stink as much as we think. You gave those poor folks a place 
    to shack up and you cleared the way for Skate Fest.
    
    An insightful determination: this ordinance will prove to be a blessing to 
    our streets and our sinuses.
    
    Splendid, Mayor. This is one city expenditure everyone can agree on. You 
    won't regret your decision.
    
    Thank you, Mayor %YOURNAME%. With this ordinance in place, the Sims of this 
    city will have safer, longer lives. Have a nice day.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you are truly plugged in to the concerns of industry.
    
    Congratulations! You've learned the simple lesson of waste not, want not. Now 
    when we really need energy resources to serve the citizens of %YOURCITY%, 
    we'll have plenty of power in reserve.
    
    Conservation is always the better way. Thanks.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, you have reached a high water mark in our estimation.
    
    We can let out a sigh of relief--and one that doesn't make us cough. We can 
    all breathe easy, now that our air will be sweet. Soon we may be able to see 
    the skyline again.
    
    It's a pleasure to see you acting like a real leader, Mayor %YOURNAME%. We 
    were afraid you might be a tree-hugging environmentalist.
    
    Bravo! You show great foresight and strength of character in your recent 
    enactment of the Nuclear-Free Zone ordinance.
    
    You made the right choice, Mayor. You might annoy an automobile maven for a 
    moment, but you'll put a good sum in the city coffers, and you just might 
    keep a few more vehicles in their garages.
    
    You're a smart cookie, Mayor %YOURNAME%. There will be less petty paperwork 
    and more happy citizens in this city.
    
    Good clear thinking, Mayor, the kind we'll have more of with the science lab. 
    Just choose your construction site and get those thinking caps on.
    
    %YOURCITY% Sims will once again prove that they believe in the power of 
    community and cooperation by presorting their trash. It's smelling better 
    around here already!
    
    Hooray for good sense, and a good sense of smell! Those scofflaw polluters 
    will smear our air no more.
    
    Now we can breathe a sigh of relief. Very well done, Mayor %YOURNAME%.
    
    We extend our hands in appreciation, mayor, and have great confidence that 
    this park will define %YOURCITY%. Just choose the park's site and let the 
    beauty begin.
    
    Ahoy, Captain! The city will make merry with its new lighthouse just as soon 
    as you choose a construction site.
    
    You're one to take quick--and brilliant--action, Mayor %YOURNAME%. You'll see 
    that putting that club down will bring %YOURCITY%'s fortunes up. You'll have 
    to choose a spiffy site for the club.
    
    Sensational decision--I can see those Sims with their wide smiles (and wide 
    wallets) streaming into the park now. Just choose a site to build the theme 
    park and let the good times roll!
    
    Well-researched decision, Mayor. Simply find the best place to put the 
    Medical Center, and we'll put those medical minds to work.
    
    Strong move, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Employees of this plant are helping to protect 
    SimNation, and protecting good capitalist profit margins as well. Just select 
    your site and congratulate yourself.
    
    Mayor, you're the sporting type--we'll all be sending up a big cheer for you 
    when the new stadium opens next season. Choose a building site and let the 
    games begin.
    
    Wonderful! You'll see that a casino is a low risk, high reward enterprise. 
    Just select the spot where you want it built so I can get rolling.
    
    Just choose a site, and construction will begin. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 
    1 -- Blast Off!
    
    Excellent. %YOURCITY% can look forward to improved healthcare for all 
    citizens.
    
    Now that's the ticket--you've given those hospital employees the confirmation 
    of their worth. And you might have even given the gift of life to patients 
    that might have perished without proper care.
    
    Thank you dear Mayor--it's reassuring to see the power of education is 
    acknowledged by such a fine, intelligent public representative such as 
    yourself.
    
    You are indeed a worthy representative--your prompt action in ending the 
    teacher's strike has averted disaster and embarrassment for %YOURCITY%.
    
    Thank goodness you acted in time and kept the police from striking.
    
    I, for one, will sleep safer tonight, knowing that the police are on the job 
    again.
    
    It took far too long but at least the strike is over.
    
    That wasn't so hard, was it? Thanks, Mayor %YOURNAME%. You did the right 
    thing.
    
    Precisely the response a sensible leader would produce, Mayor. The money's 
    just a pittance when compared to the scourge of foul air and a city choked 
    with traffic.
    
    It's been a pleasure doing business with you. Stop by and visit us anytime.
    
    Wonderful. Let's break out the crystal and toast the deal with a tall, cool 
    glass of refreshing %NEIGHBOR% water.
    
    Glad you have the water connection already in place--we can start pumping 
    immediately.
    
    Great! I'll keep the valves open and the water flowing.
    
    Ah, your ledger's not soaked through with soppy ideas, Mayor %YOURNAME%. 
    We'll toast this decision with a glass of our own local--and inexpensive--
    water.
    
    Wonderful. I'll notify my engineers and get the power flowing immediately.
    
    I'm not surprised you took the offer. All mayors like having power.
    
    Fantastic! I knew you'd go for the new deal terms. Now we will both be 
    increasing our "buying power."
    
    Well done, Mayor. %NEIGHBOR% needn't be collecting from us; they should be 
    paying us for the privilege of being our neighbor. We are all feeling full of 
    power now.
    
    Glad to do business with you, Mayor %YOURNAME%.  Thanks to you the lights of 
    my city will continue to burn brightly.
    
    Great news!  Let's hope we can get the juice flowing before my Sims start a 
    riot.
    
    Well Neighbor, here's an exchange we can both profit from.
    
    Working together for our mutual benefit is what being neighborly is all 
    about.
    
    Thanks Mayor %YOURNAME%. Maybe someday I'll be able to return the favor.
    
    Thank goodness! Let's get those pumps pumping!
    
    We appreciate your cooperation--and your water.
    
    When a city is up to its elbows in garbage, it's nice when one hand washes 
    the other. Glad to be doing business with you.
    
    Perfect. Shipment will begin immediately. We can't wait to get this junk off 
    our hands.
    
    I'm so pleased you accepted the deal. Now taking out the garbage has a whole 
    new meaning to me.
    
    I'm delighted that you have accepted our offer to increase trash imports to 
    %YOURCITY%. I'm sure you can put the additional money to good use.
    
    Indeed, Mayor %YOURNAME%, you know a trashy deal when you smell one. With the 
    money we save, we can buy more air fresheners.
    
    I'm honored to take the garbage of such a great city. I hear your garbage is 
    so clean that it doesn't even attract flies.
    
    I know this deal will work to everyone's benefit.
    
    Very good. You can continue to ship out your garbage on schedule.
    
    Great! I'll see that your Sims get power just as fast as my wires can conduct 
    it.
    
    In the name of solidarity, and on behalf of the firefighters and all the 
    citizens in %YOURCITY%, we thank you.
    
    Let me salute your decision, mayor. The base will be the most solid 
    foundation you could have for the city's advancement.
    
    Splendid, splendid--We'll soon hear those jackhammers humming, and those cash 
    registers ringing. This will be a mall for the ages! Please choose a site so 
    construction can begin.
    
    Glad we could lock up this deal. Now you just need to select a building site 
    for the prison. And in case you're wondering, the prison will be completely 
    independent of your local jail system.
    
    Thank you, Mayor. A few brown lawns and some angry farmers is a small price 
    to pay for clean water.
    
    Stay tuned to Channel 12. After a brief commercial message, we'll bring you a 
    cheerful report showing what the mayor has done to protect the safety of a 
    group of local Sims.
    
    Thanks! This is a wonderful opportunity to show off our worth to potential 
    electronics employers. I'll start printing up the brochures.
    
    You have shown your true colors, %YOURNAME%. You'll get the money soon. Just 
    watch your back.
    
    Your enactment of this ordinance is most appreciated. We should see 
    reductions in traffic congestion very soon.
    
    Your Honor, your Sims treasure your sense of fairness.
    
    Thank you, Your Honor. I can smell the fresh berries already.
    
    Your Honor, this city will get rid of its mountain of tires so fast we won't 
    know what to do with the space.
    
    Thank you, Your Honor. This boost to the tourist industry will not be without 
    rewards for the entire city.
    
    Thank you, Mayor. I can't wait to pick out the jumpsuits for our new cadets!
    
    Your Honor, you have shown wisdom by enacting this ordinance. Please accept 
    our heart felt thanks, as noted on Form 143-T, Line 1, part b.
    
    Finally, we Sims are given the chance to bring quality programming to the 
    airways.
    
    Working with the soil is so satisfying, I'm sure composting will catch on 
    quickly.
    
    Your Honor, this will mean a cleaner %YOURCITY% for years to come.
    
    Don't expect us to ever leave the light on for you! We may not have enough 
    power to keep our lamps lit.
    
    I see you have canceled the deal. The penalty fee will be assessed 
    immediately.
    
    I see you have canceled the deal. The penalty fee will be assessed 
    immediately.
    
    So, you're canceling the deal, are you? That's your prerogative. The penalty 
    fee outlined in our contract will be assessed immediately.
    
    Oh no! Who can we dump our garbage on now? At least we can spend the penalty 
    fee you have to pay while we look for alternatives.
    
    You have canceled the deal without our consent. The penalty fee is due 
    immediately. Have fun looking for another place to dump your garbage.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, on behalf of new industry about to relocate to %YOURCITY%, 
    Industry For A Better Tomorrow thanks you.
    
    Mayor, you're a real gas -- a real gas recycler, that is. Thanks for making 
    an ecologically-sound decision.
    
    The Clean Industry Association is now much stronger, thanks to the membership 
    of %YOURCITY%.
    
    Mayor, I must admit I'm trembling with excitement, being so pleased that you 
    have agreed to this retrofit measure.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, I'm sure the industrial community of this city will be 
    grateful for a long time to come, thanks to your enactment of this incentive.
    
    By enacting this ordinance, Your Honor, you demonstrate your commitment to a 
    better life for all your Sims.
    
    Great! I thought it was a deal you couldn't refuse. I hope you are happy with 
    our services.
    
    This is wonderful news! You've given us what every city wants -- more power.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You disappoint me. Disposing of these wastes is a necessity. Where should we 
    take them if everyone rejects their own backyard?
    
    This is a sad day for our city. The town of %YOURCITY% will soon be known as 
    a dumping ground to the nation. Today a toxic waste factory, tomorrow a penal 
    colony --when will it end?
    
    All I can say, Mayor %YOURNAME% is that when that stuff breaks out, I just 
    hope the wind is blowing your way. (This statement does not necessarily 
    reflect the opinion of the management of Channel 12.)
    
    We are puzzled by your decision. Shouldn't the potential to save even one Sim 
    life be worth the cost of this ordinance?
    
    You seem to enjoy paying for nonsensical programs like these. Unfortunately, 
    we now have to perform the Heimlich maneuver on our city budget.
    
    Well, you've saved some money, but you have failed to protect your citizens 
    by dealing effectively with this inflammatory issue.
    
    With or without your help, Mayor, some of us will carry on the good fight.
    
    We can't imagine how you can fail to recognize the seriousness of the rising 
    crime situation. We only hope you have another solution, or we'll all be 
    looking for somewhere else to live.
    
    All we asked was for you to treat us like Sims. But you can't do that, can 
    you, Your Highness? Better watch yourself homechicken--you never know when 
    the sandman will come calling.
    
    Your decision to let gambling continue in %YOURCITY% will only increase the 
    decadence we are already seeing, written on the faces of the slatternly 
    denizens of the gambling halls!
    
    Craps! Now I'll never get to learn how to play craps!
    
    I misread you, Mayor %YOURNAME%. I find it reprehensible that an erudite 
    public servant such as yourself is unwilling to extend that gift of erudition 
    to your constituents.
    
    We don't mind our hair turning gray, but we do mind that without this 
    ordinance our lungs may turn gray too.
    
    A blow for freedom, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Better stay upwind in our part of town, 
    where all the lawbreakers will be puffing away.
    
    It's a sad day when disadvantaged citizens are denied yet another right. 
    Their illnesses will make the body politic weaker, and our city a sadder 
    place.
    
    We are highly disappointed with your decision.
    
    Three strikes, Mayor. Keeping that sports ordinance in place is a losing 
    game, and you've tagged every taxpayer out.
    
    This is so unfair. You adults just don't understand. You don't care that our 
    Skate Fest is ruined and you're still leaving homeless Sims out in the cold 
    and rain.
    
    Another blow against good sense, Mayor.
    
    How disappointing. But not surprising, considering you travel in a limousine.
    
    Mayor %YOURNAME%, how could you reject something that would extend Sim lives? 
    My group will fight hard to overturn this decision. Have a nice day.
    
    You'll be known as the mayor of the Dark Ages.
    
    A sad decision indeed, precious resources squandered needlessly. Someday 
    soon, %YOURCITY% will truly be left in the dark!
    
    An attitude like that shows little regard for any of the city's living 
    things, including its Sims. I only hope some of us survive to tell this tale 
    of water folly.
    
    Don't blame us if the only products %YOURCITY% can produce are dehydrated 
    potato flakes and beef jerky.
    
    The corporate giants have once again used their muscle to keep shoving 
    dangerous pollutants down the windpipes of the citizens. Enjoy those last 
    fleeting glimpses of our city's skyline while you still can!
    
    Crippling industry will cripple the city, Mayor %YOURNAME%.
    
    I fear, dear Mayor, that you have made a dreadful mistake in your recent 
    rejection of the Nuclear-Free Zone ordinance. The consequences could be 
    chilling.
    
    We're very disappointed with you. You're probably one of those dreary drivers 
    circling the city for hours until they find the perfect parking spot for the 
    store three blocks from their houses.
    
    That's a loser of a move, mayor. You've just increased the weight of the 
    government on our backs. Better watch out where you park YOUR car.
    
    Ignorance is bliss, eh Mayor %YOURNAME%. I suppose the Dark Ages were your 
    kind of time.
    
    We'll live to rue the day that we heaped the responsibility of sorting huge 
    volumes of garbage on an already overloaded garbage department. What's that I 
    smell?
    
    A sad statement for your record, Mayor %YOURNAME%. You won't be remembered as 
    the far-sighted progressive--more like the squinty-eyed regressive, with all 
    the smog you've sanctioned.
    
    We're confused. Does this mean you don't care about air pollution?
    
    You've closed the door on what could have been %YOURCITY%'s crowning 
    achievement. It's regrettable that lesser minds are sometimes in positions of 
    power.
    
    Refusing the lighthouse just shows that the lights are out at City Hall. If 
    this is an example of your leadership, I'm watching out for rocky shoals 
    ahead.
    
    Bad move, big stuff. Denying the affluent Sims their little pleasures will 
    tick more than a few of them off. You better pay attention to who's really 
    running this city.
    
    So, once a sourpuss, always a sourpuss, is it? I suppose a city of moping, 
    sorry Sims won't turn a cold heart warm again, will it?
    
    I fear you see through a glass darkly, Mayor--ignorance has blinded you to 
    the great benefits a Medical Center would bring to the city.
    
    You just don't get it: this wouldn't just be a building, this would be a sign 
    of resolve to our enemies. I guess you just don't have the Right Stuff.
    
    Well Mayor %YOURNAME%, you're a poor sport. I guess this means we'll just 
    have to keep on throwing our entertainment simoleons into the next county for 
    the time being!
    
    I'm terribly disappointed. Did I mention I was going to call it %YOURNAME%'s 
    Casino?
    
    Abort! Abort! Mayor %YOURNAME%, were you listening to us?
    
    This decision demonstrates a lack of concern, not only for the healthcare 
    workers, but for all citizens in %YOURCITY%. I hope you are prepared for the 
    consequences.
    
    Well, a tight fist will make a sore fist, especially with no hospital workers 
    around to treat it. Bad move, Mayor Miser.
    
    This is dismaying! I would think that an intelligent, educated individual 
    such as yourself would wish to bestow the same advantages on the children of 
    %YOURCITY%. A disgrace!
    
    You'll be sorry when you see our town's youth on the streets, participating 
    in all manner of criminal behavior--and their only excuse will be that there 
    simply was no school to attend during their formative years. Shame!
    
    Be careful, Mayor. When the police go on strike, there will be no one around 
    to protect you.-   This decision is a tragic one for %YOURCITY%.
    
    We're fuming over this decision, Mayor %YOURNAME%.
    
    After your decision, no one will blame these workers if they go out on 
    strike. The public will blame you instead.
    
    Questionable judgment, Mayor %YOURNAME%. Now the city will be a bedlam of 
    clamor, odors, bad tempers and missed appointments.
    
    Well, OK, but you can bet the grass will be greener on our side of the city 
    border.
    
    No hard feelings. I know that every mayoral decision is a tough one. If it 
    gets too hot over there, come on by for a dip in my swimming pool.
    
    I respect you decision, though I'm puzzled by it. Are you going to let 
    %YOURCITY% become an arid desert?
    
    I am distressed that you chose to cancel the deal, but we have other buyers 
    lined up to take your place.
    
    Water on the brain, good mayor? Next thing you know we'll be paying someone 
    for the air we breathe!
    
    Just remember who holds the "power" in this part of SimNation. (That's a 
    joke, neighbor!)
    
    I hope you will reconsider at another time. Your Sims need the power.
    
    Okay, I understand. It's been a pleasure doing business with you.
    
    There's not a dim bulb in all of the city, unless it's behind the mayor's 
    desk. No doubt you burn simoleans when there's a little chill in your house.
    
    Don't be misled into believing you have more power than I do, Mayor 
    %YOURNAME%. And by the way, I've heard about your financial problems.
    
    Oh well. With luck, I'll find another city to sell us power. I'll just ask my 
    Sims to keep their fingers crossed and chant the mantra "Ohm."
    
    I understand. But tomorrow's going to be a dark day in %NEIGHBOR%.
    
    I wasn't trying to take advantage--the deal was fair. But I understand your 
    hesitation. Maybe another time.
    
    I see. My water problem is just that--MY water problem. If you have any extra 
    canteens lying around, send 'em my way.
    
    I will always remember that you turned your back on Sims in need.
    
    That's a shame. We were planing to make good use of the additional water, and 
    must look to other sources. But since we initiated the change in terms, you 
    won't be charged a penalty.
    
    That's okay. After all, I guess I'd just be dumping my city's problem on your 
    city.
    
    I can't blame you for not wanting additional garbage in your town.
    
    I totally understand your position. But were you aware that our trash doesn't 
    smell?
    
    Oh my. The engineers at the Bureau of Gunk and Junk will be so disappointed. 
    Looks like we'll have to "dispose" of our money someplace else too.
    
    So, our cash is nothing but trash, Mayor? You had better be aware that even 
    you can get dumped.
    
    You may sorely regret this decision if your garbage problem gets worse.
    
    I hope you have some other plan to handle your garbage, for your Sims' sake.
    
    Perhaps we overestimated your garbage problem. I hope, for your Sims' sake, 
    that we have.
    
    I understand. It's admirable that you want to solve your problems yourself. 
    Still friends though, right?
    
    Those who play with fire eventually get burned.
    
    You missed this opportunity, Mayor, but we will keep you apprised should 
    other opportunities arise.
    
    I see. Well it really doesn't matter. We'll find some other city nearby to 
    accept our mall, and your Sims will shop there anyway. They just won't pay 
    you any taxes.
    
    Barred from another city--oh well. It's becoming apparent to me that no one 
    wants to live next door to dangerous criminals.
    
    This is an outrage! How dare you put healthy lawns above healthy Sims!
    
    In a surprising show of disrespect, the mayor has ignored the demands of a 
    group of Sims and left an entire neighborhood at risk. We'll bring you the 
    full story at eleven.
    
    Your answer shows that you are technically-challenged, and are living in the 
    past.
    
    You have done the right thing. This was a sting operation and had you taken 
    the deal would have suffered grave consequences. As a small token of our 
    appreciation, we can disclose a "special" codeword to you to use as you see 
    fit. The word is ZYXWVU.
    
    The commuters of %YOURCITY% will remember this decision every time they sit 
    in a traffic jam.
    
    I am at a loss, Your Honor, to understand how you can reject a measure that 
    reflects the essence of fairness.
    
    I told you nobody was against this ordinance. That makes you a nobody, I 
    guess.
    
    What are we supposed to do with all the old tires? There is a limit to how 
    many tire swings and boat bumpers this city can use.
    
    I speak for the entire Chamber of Commerce when I say that we are 
    disappointed in your decision to reject this measure.
    
    A dirty city will never attract clean industries.
    
    We are sorry you chose to reject this ordinance. Our disappointment is duly 
    noted on Schedule 194-A, Column 5, Row D, Line 23.
    
    Camera shy, Mayor?
    
    What rot! You can't spare the money, is that it?
    
    We are disappointed by your decision. We can only hope that your Sims will 
    not become disappointed as well.
    
    Excellent! I'm so glad to be able to continue doing business with you.
    
    Okay then. We'll keep everything just the way it has been.
    
    Okay then. We'll keep everything just the way it has been.
    
    Glad to see that nothing has changed.
    
    Excellent! I'm so glad to be able to continue doing business with you.
    
    Glad to see that we can continue doing business together. Your garbage smells 
    sweet to us.
    
    Your honor, this decision will hang like a dark cloud of industrial smoke 
    over %YOURCITY% for years to come.
    
    Your decision stinks.
    
    I am certain that the decision not to join will cost %YOURCITY% in the long 
    run.
    
    Mayor, like an earthquake, you have many faults.
    
    Your Honor, the industrial interests of %YOURCITY% are disappointed that you 
    have chosen to reject this incentive.
    
    The Llamas are quite disappointed that you decided against this measure.
    
    Perhaps another time. We'll keep in touch.
    
    I can understand your reasons for canceling the deal, but I am still 
    disappointed.

    Whenever you start a new game, the simulator is paused. Use this time to lay 
    zones and set up an initial infrastructure of roads and utilities. When 
    you're ready, unpause the simulator and your city will come to life.
    
    If you are a new SimCity player, check out the tutorial in the SimCity 3000 
    manual.
    
    Watch the news ticker for important information and interesting tidbits. 
    Click on underlined headlines to open messages from Advisors and Petitioners.
    
    Watch the RCI Demand Indicator. A tall bar on the indicator means that the 
    Sims want more of that type of zone.
    
    Make sure all zoned areas have power and transportation or they won't grow. 
    Zones must have water to reach their maximum density.
    
    Zone density sets the maximum number of Sims that can occupy a zone. It is 
    less expensive to zone low density than high density.  A good strategy is to 
    zone for low density in young cities and then rezone when land values rise.
    
    There are no cheat codes for this game. Yeah, that's it. No cheat codes. 
    Sure.
    
    Loans can infuse a city with quick but expensive cash.
    
    Roads bring cars to your city -- and cars bring traffic and pollution. 
    Minimize these problems by giving your Sims mass transit (bus stops, subways, 
    and trains.)
    
    Bus stops must be placed next to road tiles or buses won't stop there.
    
    As power plants age, they produce less power. Older power plants run the risk 
    of exploding and should be replaced.
    
    Some players find that laying water pipes directly underneath the city's 
    roads is a good strategy for ensuring that all buildings in the city receive 
    water. Of course, the water pipes must be hooked to pumping stations to be of 
    any use.
    
    If your Sims are very happy, they will give you gifts as your population 
    grows.
    
    Build pumping stations near water, and make sure they have power or they 
    won't work. As pumps age, their capacity drops until finally they turn to 
    rubble and must be replaced.
    
    Make road or rail connections to your neighbors to open up opportunities for 
    trade.
    
    You may select up to ten Landmark buildings from around the world (like the 
    Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty) to place in your city.
    
    Ordinances can help reduce pollution and crime, and lots of other bad things.
    
    Do you want to live near a landfill or polluting industry? Neither do your 
    Sims.
    
    Experiment to your heart's content, and save often.
    
    Recycling is a great idea. A city that recycles has less garbage to dispose 
    of in landfills or incinerators.
    
    Each game tile represents an area 64 meters on each side. The largest SimCity 
    you can build has 256 x 256 tiles, representing a city of approximately one 
    hundred square miles.
    
    Sims will travel only a few blocks to a road, stop or station, or any other 
    place they want to go.
    
    "NIMBY" stands for "Not In My Backyard." A NIMBY building is one that might 
    benefit the city as a whole, but no one wants to live near it because it 
    pollutes or attracts crime.
    
    If you zone Residential and Commercial near water or hills, they will have 
    higher land values than other areas because Sims find these areas scenic and 
    desirable.
    
    The best way to increase land values in your city is to keep pollution and 
    crime under control.
    
    Ordinances can help improve education and health levels, and lots of other 
    good things.
    
    Pollution can enter your water supply and reduce available water. It also 
    lowers the capacity of pumps.
    
    High-tech industries pollute less than traditional industries, but require a 
    highly-educated workforce.
    
    Refer to your city maps to see the status of pollution, health, education, 
    flammability and crime in your city. Select "View Data" from within the 
    Adjust & Review button menu.
    
    Buying power from a neighbor is expensive, but you won't have to deal with 
    pollution from power plants.
    
    If you place polluting power plants and landfills on the edge of the city 
    map, half of the pollution will go to your neighbor.
    
    Raise the education level of your Sims by building schools and colleges.+   A 
    low unemployment rate helps reduce crime.
    
    You can build a city without roads, but it requires lots of mass transit with 
    closely-spaced stations.
    
    Larger cities typically need more Commercial and fewer Industrial zones.
    
    Sometimes petitioners ask you to make a decision; other times they complain 
    about something in the city. Once in a while they'll compliment you for doing 
    a good job.
    
    You can import garbage to earn money for your city, but it's smelly and 
    polluting.
    
    When trouble arises in a neighborhood that does not have a police station, 
    you should dispatch a mobile police unit to the scene.
    
    Without jails, police must let criminals go because there is no place to put 
    them.
    
    Hospitals that are well-funded help raise the life expectancy level for Sims.
    
    Young Sims need schools and colleges to get smarter.
    
    Libraries and museums help keep adult Sims sharp as they get older.
    
    Use the Query tool to find out information on individual buildings.
    
    If taxes are too high, your Sims will vote with their feet and leave your 
    city.
    
    When Sims want something badly enough, they will ask for it, but you don't 
    have to give them what they ask for.
    
    There's always something going on at the SimCity website: www.simcity.com. 
    Check it out!
    
    Plant trees and parks in your city. Not only do they look nice, they help to 
    reduce pollution.
    
    Sims can always find something to complain about, but you can ignore what 
    they say.
    
    Farms won't develop if pollution levels are high.
    
    You cannot make all your Sims happy at the same time.
    
    Check in with your Advisors on a regular basis.
    
    Seaports must be built on a coastline, and won't grow if they're too small.
    
    To save money while your city is small, lower the budgets for city 
    departments such as police, fire and education. Just be careful -- it is not 
    wise to underfund any department for very long.
    
    Reducing traffic congestion can help reduce pollution.
    
    When you use the Raise Terrain tool, every time you click, the land rises 
    thirteen meters.
    
    Look in the SimCity 3000 manual for short biographies on your Advisors.
    
    Sims eat their broccoli, and so should you.
