RECAP: February 2017

February seems like a long time ago, but we haven’t forgotten all of the inspiring, interesting, and just plain goofy moments from last month’s city council meetings. It was a short month, but we had some special features you might not have noticed. So let’s get to the highlights!

We chronicled:

5 council meetings

In 5 states

(including one Australian state)

With a combined population of

229,500 people

We saw

the very first State of the City Council Meetings address!

Dozens of citizens cheering on their mayor

1 Boy Scout ask an uncomfortable question about coyote trapping

1 million San José residents saved from evil by the Council Man

5 Missouri residents tell us the best thing and worst thing about their city

And we give a hip-hip-hooray to these city hall jockeys who kicked butt and took names:


Tega Cay, South Carolina city council


Cape Girardeau, Missouri city council


Coralville, Iowa city council


Salisbury, Maryland city council


Clarence, Tasmania city council
