RECAP: October 2018

Halloween may be long gone, but there are still plenty of treats left over from our October city council meetings. On the podcast, we heard about a city council leaker on the prowl and a mayor whom everyone is worried about (according to him). We also saw a Canadian council get used to legal marijuana and a North Carolina council ponder a tree jungle. Although October was busy, it was hardly spooky!

We chronicled:

3 council meetings

in 2 states and 1 province

With a combined population of

104,700

We saw

1 new youth councilor with a sense of humor

2 council tweets that sparked a near-expulsion

$5 at most being charged to RV owners by their council

4 podcast interviews, including the mayor who copied word for word from a former president and the reporter who bought a special council meeting tie

52 weeks of council meetings preserved–but no more

And just in time for Thanksgiving, please remember to be grateful for the work of these humble servants:
