The council meeting last night went really well. We all presented our main projects for the eight week program and took a few questions from the mayor and council. The meeting was probably the fastest council meeting since we arrived in River Falls. Apparently chickens are more interesting than our projects because the only non city staff members present was Dr. Ankrom and his wife. I feel like my presentation went well and the council members seemed to like the handbook I created for them.
We just spent about 35 minutes in the basement of City Hall because of a tornado watch and warning. Nothing happened in River Falls but apparently there was some nasty stuff just south of the city that prompted the watches and warnings. It was a very calm and relaxed atmosphere with the rest of city staff.
In my time here I have completed the Councilmember Handbook, a review of the Parks & Recreation guide, and conducted some research for a future project for Scot.
Only a week left.
