In the past, the swearing in ceremonies were a very small part of the State of the City activities. This year we’ve decided to try something different in order to give City Councilors their own event, allowing the newly elected councilors to be the focus of that event. So, next Monday, I will have a very short outdoor inauguration at noon at City Hall. That evening, the council inauguration will be held at 6pm at Clyde Iron, the ceremony starting at 6:30. As a reminder, the councilors being sworn-in include Jay Folse, Sharla Gardner, Jennifer Julsrud, Garry Krause, Linda Krug, and Emily Larson.
At 7pm there will be a reception featuring live music by Teague Alexy and the Boomchucks. All these events are free and open to the public – we’d love to see you there!
