I regularly cover village council meetings in small communities throughout the area. And the issues that come up are tremendously varied. For instance, one of the towns is doing a water tower rehab project this summer. The Village Administrator for this town also recently outlined a multiple road asphalt repaving project slated for this summer, in tandem with a municipal pool painting project. While, okay, not seemingly momentous on the face of it, these projects, these council decisions, do, indeed, impact the local populace in significant ways. In fact, our campaign calls for much more power to be put in the hands of these local officials who, ultimately, and intimately, know their towns’ specific needs.
