Ground Level City Choices
What idea is your city trying?
Across outstate Minnesota this fall, cities are asking themselves whether to turn off street lights, reduce police departments, delay street repairs, raise property taxes, levy fees on electricity bills and more. Political and economic winds are forcing communities to examine -- in a way they haven't for decades -- what services they consider most important and how much they should pay for them.
As part of its coverage of communities taking action to prepare for the future, Ground Level is focusing on what Minnesota residents are deciding their cities should do.
