I attended the City Council meeting two weeks ago following the series of reckless events involving the attempt by some members of City Council to fire City Manager Rich Olson.

and very needed.


Ms. Koerber - Once again, well stated. Unfortunately, we have too few citizens who take the time and show the interest to stay on top of local political issues. Those that do - by watching Council meetings, reading TDA, or better yet going to meetings to observe and/or speak, should not be reprimanded or feel in any way intimidated. I am very hopeful that Council (maybe 7 members anyway?) is now ready to work together to pass a responsible budget & move forward to make our City a better place for us all to call home! Please continue to highlight important local issues with such honest, thoughtful writing. Thank-you. Bill Hiemer
