Citizen Government

That's what it's called when the people take responsibility into their own hands for tracking, and participating in, their local government. Thanks, Forrest, for this post. And thank you, Local, for the many times lately that you've posted meeting agendas here.

Later today, that August packet should be replaced with version 1 of our packet for next week.

Hope that helps...
