Let's face it, there are lots of things from Topeka City Hall that don't work very well right now. A good look at a City Council meeting gives you some idea of the magnitude of problems city leaders face.. some of the problems they tangle with involve themselves! But one of the very good things coming out of City Hall this month is something we just found out about, and you MUST take a close look at it. It's called "Extra-Ordinarily Topeka".. the city's brand spankin' new e-newsletter. You'll find it a click away on the city's official webpage, www.topeka.org.
I took a quick glance after David Bevens from City Hall appeared on our News at 4 to promote it. The May 2008 first edition, features visually pleasing and informative pages about what's going on at the zoo, the latest public works projects and where they are, crime prevention tips, and info on obtaining burn permits. Unlike a magazine, you scroll down on the "EOT" pages and read the one you're looking for. After my blog last month about Topeka needing to be more e-friendly and more transparent, the city is moving in the right direction. Explore it for yourself, and let me know some of the other things you find on there. It's also supposed to make living with our city government a lot easier. RH
