Government meetings under-reported

As the major print media for our county, I believe The Union should take a much more active role in reporting the meetings of the Nevada County Board of Supervisors, and the Nevada City and Grass Valley city councils. These local agencies have more impact on our daily lives than state or national government.

At a minimum, a summary of actions taken by the local governments should be featured each week. If you want the citizens of Nevada County to be informed and active participants in their local government, it is imperative to shed light on all government activities, not just the controversial ones. I’d gladly live with fewer pictures of cute squirrels or horses in exchange for the real dirt on local politics.
