Finding a solution to Social Security Bar issue


In the larger scheme of things, the city council’s decision to establish a right-of-way-of at Social Security Bar may not seem like a big deal. However, the Brookings City Council’s action, and the public hearing leading up to it, is a good example of how local government is supposed to work.
