In response to message #6
I think we can take that as read. New Avalon's always seemed to run on the Coulson approach to bureaucracy, rather than the Pointy-Haired Boss one. The New Avalon Civil Service will get you exactly what you need exactly when you need it; it may not be what you originally wanted, but once you start using it, you'll end up wondering why you didn't. I used to wonder how it was all paid for, but then I remembered that not only do a lot of rich Wedge Rats live there, they're pretty universally civic-minded, so would probably be okay with paying their taxes and not go through elaborate shell games of creative accountancy. That and the NAPD fraud squad's got a boatload of teeps in it.
