Proposed City Council change sparks debate
Published 12/23/2009, The Daily Republic
Some of Mitchell’s most experienced politicians clashed this week over a proposed change to the structure of the City Council.
Dusty Johnson, chairman of the state Public Utilities Commission, and Mike Vehle, a state senator, presented ideas Monday evening to the City Council from the Focus 2020 Governmental Structures Subcommittee. Focus 2020 is a volunteer group formed last year to issue wide-ranging recommendations for the future of the Mitchell area.
