5 Things You Need to Know Today: March 14
From the school calendar to city spending; we have the news you need today.
1. City Councilors recently voiced their opinion to stay in the loop on how money is spent in departments. This is one area the council has power over and it increases transparency by having public discussions of the budget, said councilors.

3. We have a new photo contest just in time for St. Patrick's Day. We are looking for photos of your St. Patrick's Day/Irish Pride. You can enter here.
4. Don't forget about our St. Patrick's Day guide that you can see here. It has a list of events that are going on all around the area throughout the holiday weekend.
5. The city needs more elections workers of all types. If you have any interest in becoming more involved in the upcoming elections, an information session is being held next Tuesday.
